You may have played Grindstone, whether that be as it debuted on Apple Arcade, or via the worlds of Nintendo Switch or PC. Whatever, there’s a chance you would have succumbed to the magic found within. Now it’s time for Grindstone to play out on Xbox and PlayStation.
Coming from the Capybara Games team, Grindstone is a critically acclaimed puzzler that has immersed players on numerous formats for hours on end. And now comes the chance for Xbox and PlayStation folk to understand the addiction.
Available right now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 – there is no Xbox One play or love here – Grindstone is a challenging but quick pick-up and play puzzler in which you’ll be found honing your skills as a stonegrinder, attempting to climb a mountain and mine the Grinestones from the Creeps that call it theirs.
Promising an epic adventure, Grindstone from Capybara Games is something of sheer delight, as you work through the 200+ campaign levels before dropping into a host of other options that continue the grind. It’s a game that we absolutely adore and have played to death in recent times – no more so than the hours we’ve pumped into the Xbox version of Grindstone in order to deliver our review.
That review of Grindstone on Xbox Series X|S is live, with a 4.5/5 score attached to it. You’d do well to give that a read immediately, but – spoiler alert – it ends with the following glowing recommendation… “Oh Grindstone, we’re trapped underneath you again. Grindstone represents the absolute zenith of puzzling, and you should bump and grind against its smooth edges as soon as the opportunity presents itself. One hour will lead to another, and soon it will be three weeks later. You have been warned (but do it anyway).“
