Apparently this is a port of a popular smartphone game, but wherever it comes from it’s pretty awesome. “Dark Quest” is a turn-based fantasy dungeon crawl. Yes, I said turn-based.
Presentation is top notch, and the turn-based gameplay opens up interesting elements (such as running out of turns before emerging victorious) that aren’t the “same old, same old”. It costs $2.99, but worth every penny for its innovations and high production values.
Here’s what the developer (Argi Baltzi) has to say about the game:
“Dark Quest is a turn based fantasy role playing adventure game where players assume the role of a mighty barbarian on his epic quest to destroy the forces of the evil sorcerer and save the land from evil.”
