Snake with new skin
Nimble Quest is probably one of the most unassuming games in the entire OUYA store but once you play it, it’s hard to resist the retro magic.
Basically Nimble Quest is nothing more than the game Snake that you might know from your 90s Nokia mobile.
Your train of heroes is constantly moving and you just have to change directions. You may not walk into a wall, a monster or the tail of your hero-train.
Just as in Snake your task is to collect gems but you have to get these gems from defeating monsters. That’s where Nimble Quest is 100% different from the old-school snake.
You start with one hero and have to collect more and more heroes during different levels. Your first hero might not be quite as powerful and only has a sword. That sword can only reach monsters in a certain, very limited area. Later on you’ll pick up archers, mechanics with bombs and mages that have a larger reach.
In a nutshell: Your collection of heroes grows stronger the longer you survive.
The concept is incredibly simple but also incredibly appealing.
What’s even more enticing is the way Nimble Quest is designed and the music is so awesome, you’ll have to hear it yourself to believe it. Some songs could come directly out of Lands of Lore or other classic RPGs.
Nimble Quest received our “Game of the Month” Award last month and it absolutely deservers it.
At first I played because I wanted to test it out. I wasn’t expecting much and had moderate fun. Next run I had a little bit more fun and wanted to get more and more heroes. First one was the archer and then the mage and then …
I blasted through the levels and lost all feeling of time. 2 hours later I had already pulled the trigger and bought the game and I was still playing like mad.
Nimble Quest is just gaming fun in its simplest form. Not difficult controlls, no too flashy, distracting graphics. It’s just the gameplay that brings the fun.
In essence Nimble Quest is a must-buy for the OUYa
