Grindstone is more than a violent puzzle game that has you defeating enemies to gain more loot–it is also about the working-class grind. Jorj just wants to take his family on a nice tropical vacation. So he goes to his dangerous work every day and collects Grindstones so he can afford an escape. Truly the stark reality of our capitalist society.
…Anyway, the gameplay here is solid. Grindstone’s easy to learn, and easy to pop in, play a few levels, and then set aside. Nothing is more satisfying than launching into a big combo and cutting down swathes of enemies.
