grail2b.pngPaul Lawitzki's GRAIL is a Ludum Dare 28 entry that has been fittingly described by one commenter as "the Dark Souls of one-touch gaming". In it, players take control of a noble knight as he embarks on a quest to retrieve the holy grail. All actions are mapped to a single button; you jump automatically upon reaching a ledge, swing the sword at enemies when they get close, and step on floor switches when you walk over them.

There's a bit of trial and error involved in GRAIL, but the difficulty has been reduced quite a bit by the inclusion of checkpoints. Lives are unlimited, although the game does keep count of how many times the hero dies and displays the score when you reach the end of your adventure. It takes roughly ten minutes or so to play through.

GRAIL is available to play now at Paul's site and Newgrounds.
