The Quest – Mithril Horde FREE for limited time!

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 Promo Code Giveaway! (Closed)

the-quest-review-img_0032the-quest-review-img_0046

The Quest, developed by Redshift and published by Chillingo, was the first true RPG to hit the App Store. If I may quote my main man and TMA’s very own shigzeo from his review of this fantastic game:

My friends, (The Quest) should be considered the benchmark for RPG makers to follow: classic and deep; methodical and detailed; it is a true role-playing experience among portable RPG’s that are nothing but shallow hack and slash weapon-building adventures.

Not Your Kid’s RPG: The Quest – 3D Fantasy RPG in Review

Gentle reader, let me impress upon you illumination I have discovered: Redshift’s The Quest is the RPG we have been waiting for in the App Store. In fact, in my long searches I have found it to be the best RPG I have yet played on any portable gaming system. My friends, it should be considered the benchmark for RPG makers to follow: classic and deep; methodical and detailed; it is a true role-playing experience among portable RPG’s that are nothing but shallow hack and slash weapon-building adventures.

A Real RPG arrives at the App Store – The Quest

thequest4thequest2

The Quest – 3D Fantasy RPG is a simply titled game from Redshift and published by Chillingo that looks to follow the classic formula for a PC RPG, not a console cartoon stat monger adventure like the myriad of Square/Enix knock offs.  The Quest has been on Windows Mobile and Palm for some time but has finally made it to a superior platform and for only 5.99$.  If you are fans of the Elder Scrolls, Ultima Underworld and of course Sierra’s genre defining, Betrayal at Krondor, this new RPG should appeal to you.

Notably however, its graphics are far richer than any of the classics listed above and you can play from the comfort of your iPhone or iPod touch.  I know I have waited for a release of a real RPG since the App Store’s inception.  Count me as one who is waiting for this game to be bloody amazing.
