Creature Quest review - A casual RPG with a good deal of twists


For: iPhone   Also on: Android, iPad

Quest-ion

Product: Creature Quest | Publisher: VC Mobile Entertainment | Format: iPhone | Genre: RPG | Players: 1 | Version: Europe | App version: 25.17.1741
 
Creature Quest is one of those casual RPGs. You know the sort I’m talking about. The sort where you don’t really do very much, but you watch numbers going up and they make you feel a bit better about yourself.

But it’s got a lot of interesting twists to it that should keep you interested if that’s the sort of thing that gets your juices flowing and your buzzers buzzing.

If, on the other hand, the phrase casual RPG fills you with a sort of bubbling loneliness, then it’s probably best you stop reading now and go and do something that’s going to upset you a bit less.

Creature comforts

The game sees you building a deck of monsters, then taking them out to battle against a bunch of other critters. You’re completing quests, getting loot, and generally doing all those RPG things.

There are plenty of menus to look through, currencies to dig out of places, and new creatures to grab out of the miasma.

And when you’re not doing that you’re exploring the world map. Which you do by tapping sections of it with stars on them. This reveals locations, fights, and items you can pick up.



The fights involve tapping or swiping on the attacks of your deck. There’s a combo system at play here as well. And a rock-paper-scissors colour system where some hues are stronger or weaker against others.

You’ll unlock new bits of play as you work through the game, but they all work in basically the same way. And you’re upgrading, trading, and getting involved in all those sorts of things.

There’s a depth here that makes the game more interesting than most of the ones you’ll find in the same genre. And it’s more interactive as well.

Creature of the deep

As you might imagine, there’s an awful lot going on here. There’s always something to do, but you will hit big spikes in the difficulty too. Everything you’d expect is in place.

But there’s more as well. And that’s what makes this one worth checking out. If you’re interested in casual RPGs then it’s well worth checking out.
