Kill! Burn! Pillage! – Warhammer Quest

killburn

  • 10  Kill monster
  • 20  Get gold
  • 30  Acquire better gear.
  • 40  Encounter bigger monster
  • 50  Goto 10

This is the essence of every dungeon crawler game, most MMOs and pretty much every RPG

Warhammer quest has recently appeared in electronic form on steam but it’s been available on iOS for some time and its good clean fun. It’s an old game. An old old game from Games workshop over two decades old and out of print for as long.

I could simplify this but just saying its advanced heroquest 1.3 but I’d do it a disservice.  Many people (mostly old) consider this the best dungeon quest game produced by GW. Opinions vary.

There are two things that grab you about this game. The characters move this side of a bit too slow and the buy to cheat is, I’m looking for word… Not good.

Struggling with a dungeon? Buy a legendary weapon for cash money. Need more gold? Micro payment for more. Want some other character class? You guessed it.

Now for your five euro you get a very nice game that will last a few weeks. That’s fair enough. The expansions to it are another five euro each, which I’m just about okay with,

Truth be told you’re looking at xbox or Playstation prices if you want all the content. I didn’t. I had enough after the second expansion but I’d gotten my fill. A full quarter of a year casual gaming.

For all my gripes about the game its clean distilled fun. No matter how many times I venture down a dungeon I always get a thrill from wondering if I’ve bitten off more than I can chew but somehow prevailing or maybe not

Leveling up is the magic sauce in so many games. It appeals to our lizard brain.

It’s a tidy little game. The graphics are good if you squint on a smart phone. It’s also available on an iPad and PC but I think it works best as a phone/tablet game squinting assumed

“This is my dungeon crawler. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My dungeon crawler is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.  My game, without me, is useless. Without my game, I am useless. “

It’s fun while it lasts and you get what you pay for.  Worth checking out

Huzzah!
