We've seen a whole bunch of smartphone games in which your character automatically runs through the level. We've seen it in platformers, puzzlers, and even RPGs. We've seen it with jetpacks, skateboards, and that bloke who drinks his own urine.
Now, RocketCat Games has applied it to the side-scrolling brawler. And boy does it work. In fact, the result is so fun and fresh that you're left wondering why no one else thought of it before.
Your muscular hero automatically dashes through some dank crypt, which leaves you to focus on punching the monsters inside. You can jab, uppercut, pummel, and block with some simple taps.
Punch Quest is funny, addictive, and just plain fun. Turns out that the auto-runner and beat-'em-up genres were a match made in heaven
