CozyQuest in Review- Community Quest

cozyquest1Update: We’re giving away 5 copies of CozyQuest. Be sure to check here for more info! (Contest runs May4th – May 8th)

Role Playing and Massively Multiplayer Online fans have consistently made up a large base of computer and console software sales in the last 10 years. Recently, the iDevice became home to a slew of so called “MMO” games infiltrating the App Store. These applications include iMob, Undead Live, Vampires Live, Dungeon Quest and iQuest. They all have one thing in common;  they are not real MMOs. CozyQuest is the first actual evolving MMORPG that has redefined the MMO genre for the iDevice and one that has arrived not a moment too soon.

CozyQuest’s developer Nils Munch, has crafted the most brilliant interactive universe and community on the iPhone yet. The game is set in the magical world of Eluna, where goblins, dragons, giants and dungeons populate the world.

The first thing you will need to do is select a class and race. Your character is a combination of both, so it’s important that you choose the appropriate ones you if you want to possess and use certain powers and weapons. Classes are made up of the following:

  • Priest - uses his/her powers granted by their god to bring good to their followers
  • Merchant - has plentiful skills that come from earning and profiting. They are the only ones who can craft objects and barter
  • Rogue - spends time stealing from NPCs and other players
  • Mage - has an abundant knowledge of spell casting
  • Warrior - highly proficient in war and relies entirely on his or her weapon

cozyquest4The second part of entering the wonderful and ever expanding world of CozyQuest are several features which include going on quests scattered around the world (confined to the world of Felrona for the time being). All characters have weapons and armor they can buy at the blacksmith, in addition to the gear you can loot from monsters.

Completing the quests and stomping monsters raises the character’s experience points (XP). When you have enough XP, you gain a level and two extra character points for which you can use to increase your stats. TMA Tip: increase your endurance stats.

cozyquest5In the soon to be vast growing community of CozyQuest, there are also plenty of different skills to learn. Some characters are schooled in crafting lumber, manufacturing objects, fishing or in the craft of alchemy. Skills can also improve over time as they are utilized, so be sure to make use of them wisely.

Unlike some other MMOs, it is easy and not overwhelming to immerse yourself in the world of CozyQuest. There are no complicated controls; all you need to do is tap and go.

Some very nice and pretty graphics lay within CozyQuest. The backgrounds and monsters are well illustrated by talented artists. The clean interface of the main game screen is populated by colorful and pleasing icons signifying the different parts of the game. A very well designed layout which is currently growing by the day.

cozyquest6What I love about CozyQuest MMORPG is that it is really living up to its name on a continual basis. There is a living and breathing universe inside this pocket sized MMO, which I find to be incredible.There is a chat room for all players called the Salty Siren, newly implemented Guilds and even an auction house where players can buy/sell different items. A delightful new development is one where players have mailboxes that can actually be used to send any item from their inventory (including Gold) to other players.

The only negative aspects I have found thus far is that the quests do get somewhat repetitive and there are currently not enough objects in the game. This of course should be remedied via the constant updates that are planned by Nils.

I am really enjoying the exceptional feeling of community and enjoyable gameplay of the brand new CozyQuest. With its new daily expansions and added quests, you will be hard pressed to find a better MMORPG in the entire App Store. For the first time, players can experience what a truly wonderful world an MMO game can be in a portable gaming device. If you are a fan of MMORPGs or are simply looking at getting into the genre, CozyQuest is highly recommended and not to be missed.

    Shame on people who haven’t purchased this game yet!

  • Lady lorafien

    I bought it as one of the first ones, and didn’t regret it for one second, it gets better each day; if you like such games, BUY it! You will love it…

  • Lyanheart

    Great review Candy. This game really is incredible once you get into the swing of things.

  • Candy L

    Thank you Lyan, I appreciate that :)

    It is incredible and people should know about it! :D

  • Hylas

    I definitely agree with this; CQ is one of the best games in the app store, if not the best. Nils is in the chat room, collecting opinions and then updating it the next day. When I first logged in, said “Hey, everyone, I’m new, just want to introduce myself” in the chat room, I got a fair few “Hey Hylas’! Welcome, and enjoy the game ^^.”

    The community is great, the interface is great, you can play it on the go. Fights are quick, and this MMO actually has a tradeskills system to allow for a very realistic, developing in-game economy.

    Great job, Nils, and great review, Candy!
    See you in-game.

    ;D

    PS–I just proofread this and it sounds a lot like a review in itself…mah bad, I got a bit too enthusiastic; Synopsis: CQ is a great game, amazing mechanics, and I wholeheartedly agree with Candy.

  • Candy L

    Thank you indeed for your reply :)

    You mentioned all the fun stuff that makes CozyQuest so darn addicting and evolving wonderful game.

    I love our growing community

  • Assassin

    I would also like to add my support to this excellent application. A lot of time and thought went into this Gygax would have been proud.

  • Bessamy

    Wow, this looks awesome! Thanks for the review. I would of overlooked this since I have never played this type of game. Now I must watch and learn. ;) -

    And the fact you can carry this snazzy game in your purse, well, that is just plain cool!

  • http://pikamookie.tumblr.com Genevieve Wong

    This looks fantastic! I love the artwork. Looks like a perfect on the go MMORPG! Can’t wait to give it a spin!

  • Cyrix

    I am ready to be addicted! Thanks for the review, Candy!

  • bournecaindelta

    Crazy good. I loved the backgrounds and illustrations. Another MMO to rock on with. Sweet. :D

  • Brendon

    This looks like an awesome mmorpg. It sounds as though the community is pretty sweet too.

  • Synoxia

    I couldn’t have said it better myself, Candy! Awesome review! :) Folks, what you see is only the tip of the iceberg; with its simple yet amazingly addictive design, an incredibly dedicated team of developers (who are open to player comments and suggestions), and a friendly, supportive community, CozyQuest has the potential to be one of the best mobile MMORPGs of our time!

  • Candy L

    My pleasure! It’s a great game and the developer is super attentive :)

  • Candy L

    Thank you Synoxia! Well said!

    I eagerly await animations and full musical score in the new update!

  • Furrion

    I’ve been playing since about 3 days after it first came out, stumbled across CQ as I was browsing the App store on my Touch. Couldn’t agree with Candy more :) The game is great, community helpful and getting bigger every day. Definite 2 thumbs up for this one and highly recommend it to anyone that is considering buying this app.

    Nils is constantly making new content and streamlining the game to run more efficiently and provide a great experience for everyone :)

  • Henry

    I bought this game the sunday following its release and haven’t put it down since. Every day I strive to level up once, and to collect more lumber to sell, more fish to cook, more skeletons to smite. The game is fun and with the constant updates it turns into a new game every week. HIt it up, its only 5 bucks.

  • http://www.duppsko.com duppsko

    Fun game. A bit slow loading tho.
    Went into the chat and asked how i could heal myself when im broke :p
    Some dude sent me 500g and a nice weapon
    :D

  • Candy L

    Duppsko, the new Xserver is due to arrive tomorrow and will put an end to the lag. The game didn’t always have that lag and was super fast. The lag is caused by a few things like overload and LOADS of people with pirated copies.

    Also, it proves that the CozyQuest community are a special group because it is very normal for someone to send a new one money along with a weapon!

    The update with lots of goodies is due soon!

  • appreviews8

    looks like a cool game if youu like that stuff. not sure cozy is the word for it though!

  • Deezeus

    Candy all I can say is awesome review and right on point with the forte of this game. That being said, Cozy Quest sets a new bar not to mention in a genre of its own in terms of a real MMORPG on the iDevice. adding that the developer hovers over the players by implementing and listening to their suggestions along with remedying their displeasures promptly. By the same token the people of this community are true gems which makes this game all the more cozier. Simply said if you enjoy gathering, crafting, hunting, looting, questing, trading and socialising with amazing people then this is your ever expanding sanctuary!

    I was one of the winners of TouchMyApps CozyQuest codes a few weeks ago, and frankly I’ve been meaning to write this for awhile. My thoughts/review of the game. But I’ve just been too busy – playing CozyQuest.

    Yes, there’s good and bad. Yes, in some ways it’s a little like a ‘beta’ version (though honestly, some of the best gaming experiences I’ve had was during the beta of a game) – though every MMO goes through a lot of this stuff – lots of changes early on, adding more content, balancing things out, responding to players comments and suggestions – frankly, it all speaks well to the CozyQuest team – they’re constantly updating and trying to make this game better.

    The art and style of this game is great. It’s important to remember that it’s a static picture – text based type game. It’s most similar to the iMafia type games – but there are no ‘codes’ to share, and the quests are much deeper, with true stories and actual combat choices. So whereas I find most of the iMafia type games to be way too simplistic in their presentation – CozyQuest is a much bigger, much deeper game. There’s a world map, with multiple locations to visit – there are ‘events’ and special loot items, crafting, live chat, multiple races and classes to choose from… basically, if you’re looking for a Fantasy-type iMafia styled game that is deeper than what you’re normally finding in the App store, this is the game for you.

    I love it, and I’ve completely given up on playing any other game of this type. I can’t wait to see how much more CozyQuest grows in the future – and I thank TMA for the opportunity to try this game out. For anyone on the fence, it’s more than worth paying for.

    Great review Candy. You’ve covered all the things which make CozyQuest a very special and rewarding experience indeed.

    I was very fortunate to be there from day 1, and I haven’t stopped playing it daily since! The whole experience and fantastic community of fellow questers have made this something very special. In fact this is one of those times you can apply that saying – the whole is more than the sum of its parts.

    Naturally it’s not perfect, but then nothing is, unless it’s in our imagination. And it’s the imagination of creator Nils, and our fellow enthusiastic questers, who are making this a living and breathing world of mythical creatures and enchanted places, sparkling jewels and mysterious potions.

    Almost every day there is something new to experience, even if it’s just chatting amongst new and old friends in the Salty Siren chat tavern, or helping new questers starting off. The fellowship and generosity is something I haven’t experienced anywhere else, and is well worth the price of admission on its own! When was the last time you were hugged and welcomed by a bunch of friendly people you’d never met before, and who went out of their way to make to feel a part of their family? It’s a nice warm fuzzy feeling! :-)

    This is one of those rare occasions where I’d suggest you simply take the plunge and dive right in. You’ll just never know what you missed out on if you don’t.

    Peace always.

    THIS GAME IS DEAD. Totally abandoned by an absentee developer. It is a scam at this point, DO NOT BUY IT.

  • Alan

    Game is not dead… this from their website…

    “We are currently working on the CozyQuest version 2, which will have a lot of needed changes in the core application. Therefore, we are going to remake both the website and the game over the next weeks.

    The game itself is still fully playable, and the upgrade to CozyQuest v.2 will be free to all players.

    We will return soon with more updates.”

  • Gusto

    You do not want to play this game. It is full of bugs and lack of support. Version 2.0 is release but nothing works at all.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mr.gecko Nils Munch

    The game is NOT dead, and has been brought back to the AppStore.
