Description

This puzzle game begins as the Gruntz - these are the creatures that the player controls throughout the game - are whisked off to another realm. These gruntz must venture through this new world to gather missing pieces of the Warp Stone to return home.

Most of the game requires players to lead their Gruntz through a series of mazes, where it becomes necessary to avoid "trapz," find various "switchez" and try to recover the Warp Stone. Along the way, the army of Gruntz should grow as new "toolz," and "toyz" (such as "beach ballz," and "yo-yoz") are found. There are over 60 tools to aid the players through their quest.

The concept of Gruntz is somewhat comparable to Lemmings.

Gruntz Windows Look closely and you'll see that the area is made up of many levels. A Grunt will not climb, they will only go up & down stairs. The white tablets with '!' marks on them are information points
