What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Key Features:

  • Two full length campaigns: the original award-winning "DLC Quest", and the brand new "Live Freemium or Die"

English Version:

Given to me by a friend, I wanted to try this game, starting to play it without many claims.

A satirical and polemic indie about the continuously increasing downloadable contents after the sale of any game (contents that, as a matter of fact, should already be included in the game itself).

The game has no real plot, or rather, It's the same old ''save the princess'' like Super Mario. It offers simple but diversified scenarios (some of theme are totally absurd). To me it was brilliant in some aspects, in others a bit too extreme but always funny. However, the whole thing is a fun and challenging adventure.

Unfortunately, It's short-lived and there are only two chapters. Still It's quite cheap, so I recommend It to anyone who desires to spend a few hours having fun.

Italian Version:

Regalatomi da un amico, ho voluto provare questo gioco, iniziandolo senza troppe pretese.

Un indie satirico e polemico, riguardo al sempre aumentare dei contenuti scaricabili dopo la vendita di un eventuale gioco(contenuti che in realtà dovrebbero essere già inclusi nello stesso).

Il gioco non ha una vera e propria trama, o meglio, è il solito ''save the princess'' alla Mario. Offre scenari semplici ma diversificati (alcuni proprio assurdi). L'ho trovato geniale, in alcuni punti, in altri un po' estremo, ma sempre ironico. Nel suo insieme, comunque, è un'avventura più che divertente e stimolante.

Purtroppo è poco longevo e ci son solo due campagne, tuttavia il costo è poco elevato, quindi lo consiglio a tutti quelli che voglion passare un paio d'ore divertendosi.

A funny, short and simple RPG quest to save the princess where everything you can do in the game is a consumable DLC. You want a pause screen? There's a DLC for that. You want animation? There's a DLC for that. Jumping, weapons, etc... including a true ending, there's a DLC for that. This game mocks the current DLC system that games often times misuse and it creates a fun and amusing game. The game itself is simple RPG/platforming elements combined fairly well. The movement of your character feels right, which makes the platforming portion simple and frustration free. The graphics are very simplistic, but not retro. The only downfall to this game is how short it is. There are games here, the original DLC Quest and the Freemium expansion. Both, according to an achievement can be done in less than 30 minutes. Well worth the money if you can find it for less than $1.

I bought this game on sale but I would highly recommend it full price because it is only 3 euro. This game just makes fun of every in-game purchases game and ridiculous DLC for games that are out there right now, Bar 12 achievements I have fully completed this game in 66 minutes, it is short but I really enjoyed it and it's been a long time since I actually enjoyed playing a game. If you are looking for a laugh buy this game right now!

Read on for only 50 coins.

DLC Quest isnt an in-depth long story platformer. It's main draw is its satire..

Gameplay:
The whole purpose of DLCQ is to buy DLC, which will enhance your abilities and allow you to progress farther into the game. The catch is that it's extremely tiring to get coins, which helps the game throw the punchline. About 1-2 hours should complete this game for you.

Graphics:
Basic 8-Bitish graphics.

The Good:
It's a fun, short platformer if you need to kill time, or just need something to play for a few minutes.

The Bad:
Again, the games a bit shorter than i would have hoped.

Overall Grade: C+
DLCQ isn't bad, it just has low potential of getting a high grade. If the game was longer, it would be alot higher. The main drawback is that the game is way to short.

AUDIO: Basic                                                              AESTHETIC: Retro
MEMORABILITY: Humorous                                      WORTH: Discount

PROS: A joke game that criticizes how far DLC tends to go, specifically DLC available on-disc or that contain essential aspects of the game. Gameplay itself is a typical collect-a-thon, not too difficult but about 30 minutes or so of game-time. More if you go for achievements.

CONS: A bit of a one-note show. Had it criticized several points of modern gaming, I would probably see it worth its full price. It's pretty short, as well.

OVERALL: There's not much to say that doesn't ruin its punchlines. It's pretty accurate, but as a project on its own it feels unfinished. I feel like this could've been a successful vessel to many more jokes on the current state of the game industry and some of the habits it holds.

The game is full of funny situations, you will enjoy in every of them. The game has 2 parts:
-The first is really easy to beat and get every awardment. Double check every place and search through them to find every coin !
-The second will waste your nerves. At the beginning, you will feel lost. But if you play it few hours, you will figure out that it isn't hard as you though.
And to complete: If you haven't tried DLC Quest before, this is the right time to do it. You will enjoy in game and be happy when you save the world as hero !

The charm for the game wears off incredibly quickly. What is amusing and comical at first becomes annoying and mundane in no time. Throughout the two campaigns there is still some enjoyable parts here and there, but they hardly make it worth playing through this tedious adventure. Sure, everyone loves to bag on today's DLC practices and the fact that freemium is a thing, but there's a point where it stops becoming funny and just gets old. We get it, no one likes the practices. How 'bout we make a game centric to the theme? I've definitely spent a dollar and some change worse (sale), but I've also done better, so while this isn't the absolute worst thing you can throw your money at, I wouldn't do it again. Potentially worthwhile if you can get a cheap super bindle (i, yes) that includes it, but not standalone.

Har har, it's a jab at blatant over-consumerism. Unfortunately, DLC Quest never really moves beyond that one joke, and the gameplay is so bog-standard it might have come out of a "just add water" packet.

Where to begin with this game. It's simply.....simple. It's what you would expect and want out of a Platformer. The entire game in itself along with 100% achievements I was able to finish in just under 3 hours and that's what I expected when I bought it. I was no disappointed. Now would I pay $3 for this game? No. Wait until it's on sale and get it for cheap like I did. It's worth the money if you get it on sale.

But I do recommend this game to anyone who just wants to play a game that is short, sweet and to the point. I can see myself replaying this game at least 2-3 more times.

DLC Quest is totally a game worth your money! The game is a bit short but the comedy, humor and gameplay was done very well. The ending was very surprising. By the way, the game is composed of two different stories but you still play the same protagonist. The game somehow sarcastically portrays EA video games with too much demand on Downloadable Content. The game portrays that some game companies want you to spend more in order to enjoy the game to full extent. Well, in any case, I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a platform RPG with a twist. I hope they make a DLC 2! :D ..
