The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a narrative action-adventure. Even though it is a vital element in JRR Tolkien’s narrative, many parts of Gollum’s adventures have yet to be detailed. In The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, you have a chance to get to know this story. From his time as a slave in the Dark Tower underground to his stay with the Elves in Trevamata.
Use stealth, agility, and cunning to survive and overcome what awaits you. Climb, jump and hang to escape dangers or access strategic points. Although Gollum is not a fighter, he does not shy away from defeating an unwary enemy when the opportunity arises (or to get rid of him in a more creative and villainous way).
Your decisions and your ways will have a direct influence on the personality of Gollum: Always in conflict with your two sides, Gollum and Sméagol, it is up to you to decide if the dark side of Gollum takes over or if there is still a spark of rationality in what one day has already it was Sméagol. One mind, two egos – you decide.
