Vaporum

Vaporum is a grid-based, single-player & single-character dungeon crawler RPG seen from the first person perspective in an original steampunk setting. Inspired by old-school games like Dungeon Master I and II, the Eye of the Beholder series, and the most recent Legend of Grimrock I and II. Stranded in the middle of an ocean, in front of a gigantic tower, the hero has to find out what the place is, what happened there, and most importantly, who he is. Combat takes place in real time. Each enemy has a distinctive set of strengths and weaknesses so you have to employ different tactics to beat each one. Weapon types have each a set of unique bonuses and behaviors which adds more depth and thought when choosing what weapons to equip.

Overall enjoyable but I largely agree with some of the main points cited by more negative reviews here, the combat just pulls some cruel tricks and you are gonna be quick saving/loading a bunch. Grimrock is definitely the more successful grid RPG of the two, but I still found myself engrossed. The art direction and sound design are largely great.
If you're looking to scratch that itch, I'd recommend, but maybe on a sale.

Bioshock and Grimrock had a baby!

Review from Steam

Retro steam punk grid based dungeon crawler
For an indie game, Vaporum has a really high production value
dungeon crawler, RPG elements (levels, skill points, Gear/item rarity, and different builds), Puzzles, and strategic combat.
worth picking up the bundle as well.

Review from Steam

Decent story, good combat, agility based, kinda like Legend of Grimrock. I'm not a fan of steampunk but this one kept my attention till the end.

Review from Steam

Legend of Grimrock meets Bioshock. Well executed, doesn't outstay its welcome, puzzles are mostly fair and exploration is fun and rewarding. Atmosphere and graphics are on point. I really like the system that allows you to pause time when you're not taking an action, makes fights that I would have found frustrating or impossible into manageable ones, as I can take my time thinking about strategy instead of panicking.

Review from Steam

Fun Grimrock-esque solo variant with a lot of puzzles and tight combats. I did not go for completion in this game as it was nice but seemed a bit repetetive but I had fun up until that point.

Review from Steam

After playing a few hours, I'm already hooked on this game. If you played Legend of grimrock previously, then you would surely enjoy this game. It has a lot of similar aspects such as being a dungeon crawler, RPG elements (levels, skill points, Gear/item rarity, and different builds), Puzzles, and strategic combat. The only difference is you play as a solo character and not multiple in your party and the theme being steampunk of course.
Looking forward to finishing this, probably worth picking up the bundle as well.
Update: was not expecting this game to jump scare me, lol
Update 2: The game is good but my main dislike is that the difficulty just turns into a health sponge, everything has so much health and you just go in circles until you kill the enemy, at least you can abuse the quick save and restart right away.
