Nimble Quest is a break from the simple, addictive simulators that NimbleBit has been peddling in recent times. Gone are the cute bitizens, replaced with sprites that wouldn't look out of place in a SNES-era RPG.

There's more actual gameplay here, too, with a core mechanic that harks back to the early days of mobile phone gaming. Nimble Quest won't lure you in in the same way as earlier titles, but if you don't mind something a little quicker and a little more immediate, you won't be disappointed.
