Grim Tales is a video game based on the webcomic of the same name. The game is developed by DKH Studios under the license of Cartoon Network Interactive and NickToons. It is published by Play THQ, a publisher of NickToons, and D3 Publisher, a publisher of Cartoon Network, for the Wii U and PlayStation 4.


The game follows the plot of the webcomic. The game is separated in chapters, each one focusing on another character. Some characters, like the three main characters, have multiple chapters while others only have one chapter. The main plot of the game is to defeat HIM and brings peace in the Underworld again and thus stop the Underworld War.


On both controllers you can move around using the analog stick or the control-pad. The circle or the A-button allows you to jump. The X and B-button is used for your normal fighting attacks, while the square and Y-button are for the special attacks. You can switch between special attacks using the L & R buttons. The special attacks are displayed in a menu at the bottom left of the screen, and after using one it takes time to reload again, some also have a longer reload time than others. Start pauses the game and Select opens the options screen.

It is an open world RPG, so you look from behind the playable character like in games such as Kingdom Hearts and Assassin's Creed. There are several modes in the game.

Story Mode

Story Mode is the main mode of the game in which you follow the plot of the webcomic.

Versus Mode

In versus mode you can select one of the playable characters in the game and battle against one other in various stages based on locations in the game. There are certain characters that can be unlocked through the story mode.


Just like Versus Mode but online.
