Style and atmosphere inside the game:
Grimm's Hatchery is a unique mixture of classic arcade with role-playing game that features captivating game concept, colorful solid graphics, satisfactory sound effects and pleasant classic music. As for graphics, it is far away from perfection. Your pets look like tiny unpretentious creatures, which are difficult to differentiate. Backgrounds and villages are well designed, so you may even feel the atmosphere of Middle Ages. Characters are also well rendered but they lack of animation.

All in all, Grimm's Hatchery is an original game that will keep up your interest to it till the end due to captivating game concept, variety of simple quests, and the possibility to create new breeds.
