The Quest needs no introduction: it was the first real RPG on the iPhone, has already spawned 2 additions and remains among the App Store’s Best RPGs. Now, a fourth instalment to the series has sneaked onto the scene; and better than any blogging-praise is that for a limited time, it is FREE! The Quest isn’t just another mobile RPG, it is one of the best single player RPGs on any portable system. Maybe it is the best. Chillingo and Redshift have certainly stood by their product with frequent updates and many expansions. Mithril Horde can be added to your The Quest installation and played seamlessly; or it can be played on its own. Get it while its free, then get it since it continues the tradition of the App Store’s best RPG.

The Quest – Mithril Horde is an expansion to The Quest, a beautifully hand-drawn, immersive and enchanting world full of exciting challenges. After enabling the expansion, you can continue to play The Quest with your existing character(s) to explore new areas and quests. However, if you don’t have The Quest, you can also play the expansion as a standalone game.
You’re a Savirian veteran of the ill-fated Lukomorian war, returning home to the west. Your sovereign, Lord Yuz, ruler of the exotic, westernmost province of the Mithril Horde, has summoned you to help re-establish his independence from the Mithril Horde. To do so, he seeks an alliance with the charming Cmonez, Princess of the last free Savirian state. However, his plans have been thwarted by Bathlusaa, a great dragon prince and by the Great Horde itself. Princess Cmonez has been captured on her way through the mountains and the Horde has sent troops to secure Lord Yuz’s rebellious state. In this land of savagery and beauty, can you help your people prevail? Or will you and your nation live as slaves?
To access the new areas (not applicable if you are playing the expansion standalone), go to the harbor of Mithria and talk to captain Hanty, then select “Horde” as your travel destination. is recommended to reach at least level 35 before trying to take on the challenges of this new expansion. Please note that after you have traveled to your destination, you’ll have no way back for a while (except if you have Marked a spot), so it is also recommended that you keep a save in Mithria.
The Quest – Mithril Horde has been developed by Zarista Games (www.catacomber.com) and was adapted to iPhone by Redshift.
