Getting Started

You're watching VisiHow. This is part two of our series on how to play Legend of Grimrock on the iPhone 6. In this part, we'll discuss getting started in the game.

Steps

  1. 1
    Navigate to the Legend of Grimrock icon
    .
    This consists of three letters, "LoG", and is labeled "Grimrock".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    Give the icon one tap
    .
    When Legend of Grimrock launches, a landscape mode screen will show up. We'll have the option to start a new game or view the credits. Since we're new to this, we're going to start a new game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Simply tap on "New Game"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Review the different options
    .
    The first of these is "Difficulty". It "Scales combat difficulty" but "Does not affect puzzles."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Tap "Normal"
    .
    We have a number of options to choose from. There is "Easy", "Normal", and "Hard". Our recommendation is, for those first starting out and learning the game, "Easy".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Tap "Easy"
    .
    The next option we have is creating characters. If we choose to create characters, then that means we'll have the option of creating each individual person in the party. Finally, we have the option for "Old School Mode". This means that we will not have a map. We will need to make a map as we go along. This is something that makes the game extremely difficult, especially if used to the newer ways games tend to be, where things are often fairly easy. Since this is our first tutorial and we're getting started, we're just going to go ahead and tap "START". Later, we'll come back and demonstrate how to create characters and we'll show what "Old School Mode" looks like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Tap "START"
    .
    We'll be taken to the intro. It's sort of an overview of the game and how it starts and progresses. We're going to skip past the intro. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will give a quick overview of the game. Basically, our characters, or the people in our little party as we play through, have been sentenced to be locked up in Mount Grimrock. There is an underground set of tunnels and passages left by a past civilization, which will allow us to escape. The catch is, no one has ever escaped Mount Grimrock. Perhaps we will be the first. Let's go ahead and skip the intro.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Tap "SKIP INTRO" in the upper-right corner
    .
    Alternatively, tap "Next" on the right to view it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Once the game starts, examine the panel on the right
    .
    We'll see that we have four characters, each represented by an icon. Whichever character is currently active will have the active option. We can move forward with the arrow buttons, or by tapping the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Look at the options running down the left side
    .
    We have "MENU" options. The sleep option is labeled "Zzz". We also have the "MAP".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Tap "MAP"
    .
    We will start with the map, as that's the most basic.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Look at the map when it loads
    .
    We'll see that we've gone nowhere yet. As we go, we'll see different options that pop up. We can annotate and mark the map. We can find our current location, and scroll up and down through various map options.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Tap "MAP" again
    .
    That takes us back to the main screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Press "Zzz" to sleep
    .
    Pressing sleep will allow us to sleep for awhile. It's a great way to recover health and other things for our characters. However, it is possible that we will be attacked while sleeping. We don't recommend doing it in dangerous parts of the dungeon, which is most of the dungeon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Tap "Zzz" again to wake up
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap "MENU"
    .
    This will give us a series of things that we can do. We can tap "RESUME" or "MENU" to go back. We can load a saved game. We can save our current game. We can tap on "STATISTICS" or "TUTORIAL" to get a quick tutorial of how to use or perform different options and functions in the game. We can tap "MAIN MENU" to go back to the main menu, which will allow us to reset options, such as making it easier or harder or creating our own party.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Tap "OPTIONS"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Tap "Battery saver" if desired
    .
    It makes things a bit easier on the phone battery. Alternatively, reduce the phone's screen brightness or consult our VisiHow tutorial on how to save battery on the iPhone 6.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Tap "RIGHT" to change where the controls are
    .
    Tapping on "RIGHT" switches it to "LEFT" and vice versa.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Tap in the bar next to "Music volume"
    .
    This lets us adjust the music volume.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Tap in the bar next to "SFX volume"
    .
    This allows us to adjust the volume of sound effects.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Tap the bar next to "In-game gyro effects" to adjust this
    .
    These options are generally personal options. They depend on handedness, on whether loud music or soft is preferred, and the same for sound effects. For our purposes, we have everything off for this tutorial.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Tap "BACK" when ready
    .
    It is in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Tap "MENU"
    .
    This closes the menu.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Tap on the forward-pointing arrow to go forward one step
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Keep tapping to move forward
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Tap the diagonal arrows to look around
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Look and step forward once more
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Look around by tapping the diagonal arrows
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Press and hold on the torch
    .
    We want to take it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    Drag the torch to one of the hands on the right side of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Drop it over a hand
    .
    We have put it in our hands. This will make things much brighter.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    Look around again
    .
    On the right, there's a set of writing on the wall.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Tap the text
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Read the text
    .
    It gives us the option to "Choose your fate" and "Perish in this cell or pick up the torch". Torches will, over time, burn out. We will want to make sure that we have several of them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Tap the forward-facing arrow to keep moving forward
    .
    Try and find out what's in the dungeon. We have a tutorial option that it is telling us we can do. We do recommend going through a quick walkthrough of the game's tutorial. We are giving you a quick intro to demonstrate how to get into the game and to give some ideas of what the actual game looks like. As we move through various areas, we may want to check our map.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    Tap "MAP"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    Look at the map
    .
    We've got a little bit more of the dungeon mapped out for us. The farther we go, the more we'll have mapped.

    "Minotaur" is the next option. They are horned bulls from an old Greek legend.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Read the "Minotaur" stats
    .
    We have a lot of strength, but not that much dexterity. We have a lot of vitality, but not that much willpower. Minotaurs have just one skill point. Minotaurs eat a lot of food. Food is a big thing in the game. We may find constantly that we are starving and not having enough food as we play the game. This "Food Consumption +20%" is kind of a hang-up, and we want to be careful with that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Scroll down and read about "Lizardman"
    .
    They are a fairly good class. They have a small subtraction to willpower, and have 2 extra dexterity, which can help with dodging things, especially for rogues. They have 3 skillpoints.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Scroll down and read about "Insectoid"
    .
    It's at the very bottom. Insectoids are little creepy crawly bugs. They start out with a little less strength and a little less vitality, but they have a lot of willpower and they have some dexterity. They make very good images because of that. They have 3 skillpoints, which is a little bit less than Humans do, but they eat less food. There is a bit of a trade-off there. We can mix and match our party as well. We could have a balance of an Insectoid as a mage, a Lizardman as a rogue, a Minotaur as another rogue or a fighter maybe, depending on what we want to do, and also, of course, our Human.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Tap "BACK" to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28

    .
    If we want, we can change the class.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Read through the three classes available to choose from
    .
    We have "Fighter", "Mage", and "Rogue". Fighters do one of two things, basically. They either defend extremely well or fight extremely well. They have a lot of damage or a lot of defense. Mages use staves, orbs, and their own hands to create magic spells. Rogues also do two things. They either fight with ranged weapons or they fight with hand-to-hand or unarmed, which is basically on the front lines. Later, as we advance in the game, we will find that rogues are invaluable. The recommended party set-up is one fighter, one mage, and two rogues. Put one hand-to-hand rogue in the front and one ranged rogue in the back. A lot of people prefer a Minotaur for the front rogue. It all depends on personal preferences.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Tap on the row marked "1st trait"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Scroll through the traits
    .
    Traits are different things that add special abilities for us. If we're aggressive, we do lots of damage. If we're agile, we've got extra dexterity. If we're athletic, we are strong. Right now, we have "Aura" selected. This gives us extra energy. We can choose "Cold-blooded", "Evasive", etc. We can find everything down this list that we would prefer to have.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    Tap a trait to select it and tap "BACK" to go back
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Tap the third box from the top on the left
    .
    For the purposes of this tutorial, we will add four characters and change their names.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    Review the party
    .
    At the moment, we just have a party of human fighters, which is not a really good thing to do, but we're just trying to show how to get into it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    Tap "PLAY" in the bottom left when ready
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  42. 42
    Read the warning, if applicable
    .
    We "have unspent ability points" and are being prompted to "Start the game anyway" or go back and spend them. For this demonstration, we will tap "Yes" to go ahead and start the game. We can spend those ability points later, which we showed how to do with our first character.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  43. 43
    Tap "Skip Intro" in the top right corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

  45. 45
    Tap the forward-pointing arrow to run forward
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  46. 46
    Get a torch
    .
    We showed how to do this in the Getting Started section of this tutorial. Now we have a torch.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  47. 47
    Note the little arrow icon on the characters
    .
    That will also appear when we level up. It means that we have unspent skills.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Tap one of the little arrow icons, if applicable
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Our character just gained "Protection +1" from spending the skillpoints in "Armor".

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Tap on the portrait of a character in the front

Use Food and Healing

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to teach you more about how to play Legend of Grimrock for your iPhone 6. In this part, we're going to talk to you about food and healing.

Steps

  1. 1
    Look at the character portraits
    .
    In our demonstration, our characters are all a little bit damaged. There are no magic spells in the game that will heal them. Only rest and food and potions will heal them. First, we need to make sure that everybody has food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    Tap a character portrait
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Look at the green in the bar marked "Food"
    .
    This character has food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Tap through each character's portrait on the right-hand side and look at their food level
    .
    All of our characters have food. If one didn't have food, we could feed them something.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Look at the "ITEMS" tabs for each character
    .
    There are two grids beneath the header area. The left-hand grid is where we will see food items if a character is carrying any.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Tap a food item
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Read about the food
    .
    Ours says, "Snail Slice", and the "Nutrition value" is half. It would fill up half her bar. We wouldn't normally want to use that yet, because she has more than half a bar already.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    To feed a character, tap and hold and drag the food item over their portrait and release
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Look at the "Food" bar
    .
    Because we fed her, it filled her food bar back up all the way. It was more than we needed, but that's fine for this demonstration.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Tap the "X" in the upper-right corner of the header area
    .
    Now let's rest and heal the characters.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Tap "Zzz" on the left-hand side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Watch the health bars
    .
    They will start to go up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Tap "Zzz" when the health bars are all full
    .
    We're done resting, and there's no more need to rest. Proceed on with the game. Just pay attention to the amount of food available, because if characters don't have food, they will begin to starve. Starving characters do not heal or regain magic. All of our magic and healing are full now.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    This concludes our tutorial on how to feed your characters and heal your characters in Legend of Grimrock for the iPhone 6
    .
    Thanks for choosing VisiHow and have a great day.

Use Magic Spells

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going over Legend of Grimrock and teaching you how to play it on the iPhone 6. For now, we are going to discuss magic.

Steps

  1. 1
    Look at the character portraits in the top right corner
    .
    In the bottom right, we have a magic user. In order to learn spells, we have to find the proper runes. Find them by exploring or by looking them up online. There are also scrolls and other things to find in-game that will teach spells. Let's do a quick overview.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    Tap the glowing hand icon
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Look at the list of runes
    .
    There are nine in total.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Look at the first row of runes
    .
    The very first one is the fire rune. It's the first of the elemental runes, and what it does is destroys things. It's big on power and big on strength, and it's a requirement for any fire spell we'll ever cast. The next rune is the life rune. This rune is one that represents creation, bravery, light, and health. Any time we cast things that help the party, enchant magic items, or cast spells that might create or give off light, this will come into play. The final rune in the top row is the air rune. It's the second element. It controls air and also gases and storms. It's something that we will use for all of our air spells. We can create magic projectiles with it or clouds of poison, that type of thing. It depends on how we do it and what we have set up with it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Look at the second row of runes
    .
    The first rune in this row is the rune for spirituality. This is mind and spirit. It lets us do things like pass through walls or pass by gates. The center rune is the rune of balance. It is a rune that ties all of the other ones together. It's especially important for protection spells. If we're trying to keep our party safe or make sure everyone has a magic shield around them, then that's the rune that we would be using. The rune on the end is the physicality rune. It represents strength and also the material world. It's something that increases force. We can hit harder or do more damage with that rune.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Look at the bottom row of runes
    .
    On the bottom left, we have the earth rune. This is another elemental rune. It taps into plants and the power of the earth. These are spells that move on the ground, like earthquakes, poisons, those types of things. In the center bottom is the death rune. It is the force that basically empowers all things cowardly or evil or dark or destructive. We will use this for enhancing damage or blocking things. Last, but not least, on the bottom right, we have the ice rune. This is the final element. It's the one that will control cold and water. If we're casting ice spells, we need this. If we tap each rune individually, we can see some of the spells that they may or may not have, if we have a high enough level.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Tap the first rune
    .
    This is the fire spell, lit up in the center.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Tap the fire spell
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Watch the spell cast
    .
    We shot a fireball.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Look at the hand icon
    .
    It may be grayed out temporarily.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Once the character is ready to cast spells again, tap the glowing hand icon
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Tap another rune
    .
    Let's try the shock spell. We will tap the top right rune.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Tap the spell in the center to cast it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Watch the spell cast
    .
    In our case, we get an error message. The character "does not meet the skill requirements of this spell." That is because the character is, at the moment, relatively low.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Tap the earth rune
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap the spell in the center
    .
    Again, the character is not high enough to cast that spell. Usually, when we start off, we're just going to be casting that first spell, the fire spell. There are a few others with the fire rune.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Tap the glowing hand
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Tap the fire rune
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Tap, hold, and drag from the fire rune to another rune
    .
    We will drag to the life rune next to it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Look at the screen
    .
    We've now got two runes in a row lit up. This will be a spell that will give us some additional options. This character is not high enough for this spell either, as indicated by the question mark over the spell in the center.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Tap the spell
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Watch the spell
    .
    In our case, we get a "Fizzle", because we are low level. Let's try a more complicated spell.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Repeat the previous steps, but drag through additional runes
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Again, tap the spell to cast it
    .
    As we proceed along, we will be able to cast more spells. Don't stop trying spells. The spells are very very important. Here is one for ice shards.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Tap, hold, and drag through the bottom row of runes
    .
    This will cast ice shards when the character has the skill requirements to do so. As we continue casting spells, our level and our skill will increase. As our level and skill increases, we will be able to cast more and more spells. We will show a full list of spells in another tutorial.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Thanks for watching our tutorial on the magic spells
    .
    Hopefully you will have a great day, and we'll see you in the rest of our tutorials.

Solve Puzzles

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to play "Legend of Grimrock". Specifically, in this part, we're going to be discussing the puzzles and complexity of certain puzzles. In front of me, there is a gargoyle face with a missing eye. It had two missing eyes originally, but I put the other blue eye back into it. I'm going to show you how I figured that out.

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing to do upon finding a puzzle is look around
    .
    Tap the diagonal arrows to look left and right. When we turn left, we see a door. When we turn right, we see the face. When we turn right again, we see some writing on the wall.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    Tap the text
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Read the translated text
    .
    It says, "Heal My Sight". We were unable to figure out what exactly we could do to heal this monster's sight. We assumed that there must be some eyes somewhere.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Tap "MAP" along the left-hand side
    .
    We've explored quite a bit of map.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Tap "MAP" again to get back to the face
    .
    We had found a blue gem and realized that must be one of the eyes. We began hunting and looking more and more, and we found another blue gem. We will encounter puzzles like this throughout the game where we have to interact with them. There is a variety of things we can try when we encounter a puzzle.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Tap and hold on the screen and drag upwards
    .
    This lets us look up.

  7. 7
    Tap and hold on the screen and drag downwards
    .
    This lets us look down.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Continue dragging to the side to look around more freely
    .
    We can get a better idea of what's there. In this case, we needed the other blue gem, which we found just a little while ago.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Tap a character portrait
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .
    Do not drop it. The screen will switch to the puzzle, and we will still have the blue gem attached to our finger.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Drag the gem over to the empty eye socket
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
  14. 14
    Look around
    .
    On the left, the door has opened. Unfortunately, a monster has come out.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Attack the monster
    .
    We will use our mage. Tap the glowing hand icon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Tap a rune to activate a spell
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Tap the character's weapon
    .
    The slot corresponds to the character portrait. Our first character is in the top left box, and his weapon is in the top left box of weapons.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Continue attacking
    .
    Hopefully, we will succeed. It's not ever a guarantee in any of these games, but one can always hope. Notice that we are tapping, and this moves in real time. If we wait, he will just continue attacking us.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Tap each character's attack as it comes up
    .

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Tap the character portrait
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Find the shield in the character's inventory
    .
    It will be in the grid on the left in the tab marked "ITEMS".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Tap, hold, and drag the item from the left side to the grid on the right
    .
    This grid is for equipped items. We can see the spear on the one side. Drop the shield on the other. Now we have a much better defense. For this demonstration, we will drag the shield back to the inventory to show what that means.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    With the shield unequipped, tap "STATS"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

  33. 33
    Tap "ITEMS"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

  35. 35
    Tap "STATS"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Find "Protection" and "Evasion"
    .
    "Evasion" has increased to 11. The shield has given us the ability to evade more. This means we will live longer, or at least, that's the plan.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37

Bypass Traps

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are showing you how to play "Legend of Grimrock" for the iPhone 6. For this part, we are going to be discussing how to overcome traps. As a general rule of thumb, you will find traps, such as the one right in front of us here on the ground, throughout the game. Some of them are easy to spot and some of them are not so easy to spot. The ones that are not so easy to spot are usually the ones that will kill you, but if you're careful, you can see them. In order to avoid them, you have to figure out what to do. As a general rule of thumb, whenever you see a trap, if you look around, you'll find something.
