It’s Friday, and EVERYONE knows what that means: all new releases in Artix Entertainment’s games! Don’t let your summer be a bummer—come play games online with us, help us defeat the toughest monsters, and score the most epic loot ever!

GrimSkull free to play AdventureQuest Worlds

AdventureQuest Worlds
The moment you have all been DYING for is finally here! Known for his seemingly-impossible-to-survive tricks, traps, and cheats, Grimskull challenges YOU to traverse his torture chambers, outwit his wiles, and claim the legendary prize at the end…if you can survive! Suit up in the Hero of Steel Armor Set, get your kicks with Player Suggestion Items, uncover the whereabouts of the completely color custom Solar Protector set, and then dive headfirst (or dead-first?) into Grimskull’s dangerous trap-filled dungeons!

Withered
Withered: Alright, I have a question for the AE team working on Grimskull's Dungeon: Why must we reforge the HeroBlade? In the final cutscene, it's in perfect condition. So what happened to it? Did Grimskull shatter it at the last second? Could you please explain this?

Withered: Oh and what is the GrimBlight's top rune supposed to do now?
Betasword
Betasword: for past few years I've watched as ac items have become more and more common, rares in nearly every release...prices may have changed but I was beginning to lose faith in aqw's releases. Then! Grimskull came out, the dungeon was completely non ac (if you don't include grimblight) it had a ton of content and was very enjoyable. Grimskull's dungeon had something other releases for aqw lacked; a feel of involvement in the world, the feel of innovation and change that I've been waiting for for years in aqw. This release renewed my faith in AE and I look forward to more gimskull dungeons and wonder what else AE has in store for us in the future.

Betasword
Betasword: The grimskull release as wonderful as it is does have a few downsides; Part 1 was fun and interactive sadly part 2 the area meant for higher level players was a long monotonous grind, I was unable to have any fun during the section designed for players of my level because of that. Story in short, interactive fun filled dungeon is great! long, dull, and boring grind not so much.
asasqw
asasqw: It seems the Adventure Quest knight addition needs some repairs. Every time I try to get past level five the quest just points me to a coming summer 2013.

kabimarta1: Amazing AQW release! I really admire how funny it is that Grimskull gets to laugh at you every time you make a mistake in one of the dungeon's rooms that sends you to the "Death Screen". The Princess/Ghost King Angler boss monsters were especially hysterical. I'll be looking forward to next week's Dage Scorned release and the winning entries of this OS contest in-game in OS itself!

Necropol: This is so ugly!I really liked Herosmash,but there are a lot of bugs! And beyond that,the last "serious" update was now 2 months! (The last updates were only about new shops with useless things) Please work more at herosmash and add something really "playable"! Thanks.
