"Diablo meets Dungeon Keeper"
PC Gamer

"Mighty Quest is like pop-corn. You take just a few to taste them and you end up finishing the whole pot without noticing."
http://www.jeuxvideo.com/articles/0001/00018382-the-mighty-quest-for-epic-loot-preview.htm

"At its core, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot shows a lot of promise. I love the dungeon building and the quick and instant gratification the hack n’ slash looting gives."
Destructoid

"The name may be a bit confusing, then, but there's no mistaking the warmth lurking within wonderful chunky art and the neat dovetailing of complimentary systems."
Eurogamer

“Mighty Quest is on its way to becoming the essential multi-player game for the non-multi-player”
The Examiner

About This Game

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a brand new game from Ubisoft Montreal that thrusts you in an outrageous medieval fantasy world called Opulencia where wealth, status and showboating are the name of the game!

As a newcomer to Opulencia, you will hack n slash your way through hundreds of castles designed by the ingenious minds of your fellow players!

Don’t forget to show them who’s boss by constructing deadly keep of your very own – in this kingdom, size really does matter!

Key Features

  • Castle Looting: Prepare your hero for battle and charge into one of many player-created castles to test your skills and might! Oh yeah, and don’t forget all the loot and gold waiting for you in the treasure room at the end of the castle.
  • Castle Defense: Protect your treasure from the greedy hands of your neighbors. You and your friends can build custom castles with majestic rooms and fill them with deadly monsters like fire-breathing dragons, nose-picking Cyclopes, swarming vampires and more. Then, surprise your foes by boosting your castle’s defenses with fearsome fire cannons, spike traps and other surprises. The more enemies perish in your castle, the higher the reward.
  • Variety of Heroes: The outlandish world of Opulencia has an eccentric cast of characters ranging from the knight, Sir Painhammer, a good-natured tough guy to Blackeye Bowgart, an archer with a chip on his shoulder. More will be available in the near future.
  • Character Customization: Plain armor is out this season, shiny metal is in. Use your well-earned gold to shop and customize and level up your heroes in style.
  • Showboating: Think you are the baddest of the bad in all of Opulencia? Prove it by creating different challenges for your foes and compare yourself on the leaderboards.
  • Intense Action: Play on your own schedule. Short sessions means you can play when you want to. It also doesn’t hurt to have others playing at the same time, but you don’t need them playing simultaneously to experience looting at its best.

Has lots of potential to be a great game but sadly won't live up to it's potential due to incompetent developers.

This game had been in closed beta for almost a year and had a major rework due to the negative backlash and criticisms over their shoddy mobile-games style "pay-to-not-wait-X-hours" business model. Amazingly, it took them almost a year before they realized their business model ain't working for a PC game - despite the constant complaints and whines of the players.

Game got rework and released open beta on Febuary, 2014. It was buggy and unbalanced, but that was expected as the game was in beta. What's not to be expected though, is for devs to start shoving DLC, unnecessary content, and locking characters behind a paywall - when the game is supposed to be testing for bugs and balance. Isn't the whole point of a beta to flesh-out the kinks of the game? Not "try to milk as much money from your players before the game even gets a full release"

My major complaint about this game though - is the terrible pace of balance fixes. Patches usually come in a bi-monthly basis. People have listed problems with the game's balance ever since the start of the open beta - problems that made the game repetitive, stale, and boring. The devs even acknowledged these problems themselves even as early as March - yet they barely touched the balance when it comes to patches; it's usually 1 minor balance change followed by more DLC, content disguised to entice you to spend money on blings (*cough* crafting patch *cough*), or advertisements.

The slow pace of balance changes results in a sorta flavor-of-the-month setups where people will just resort to the most imbalanced setups that's currently available. This is what makes the game a repetitive and boring choir, as 90% of the time, you'll find people are just using the same setups with little variations in their defences. This trend had been going on for over 6 months from the time of this review's posting - and looking at how the devs are more content to shove DLC on your face than listening to player's feedback in a friggin' beta - then this game ain't going anywhere.

TLDR: Game is rotting in beta with devs trying to milk as much money from players as they can instead of fixing bugs and balance; Also Ubisoft DRM (U-play) sucks.

Update: The game has become Pay-to-Win again - with the introduction of defense crafting. This patch introduced crafting rare monsters by collecting rare materials - these materials are so rare that most players who don't spend money on the cash shop will usually have less than 5 rare monsters in their defenses - whilst people who just outright buy the materials from the cash shop will has 30 or more rare monsters in their defenses. Absolutely disgusting - do not touch this game unless you enjoy paying money for unfair advantages.

Heroes are kind of jerkwads, at least if you accept the premise of The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. It's not enough that they've pillaged fortunes untold from dungeons and assorted baddies; in their idle hours, they engage in home invasions of their neighbors in Opulencia, their medieval Columbia-style floating city in the sky. Good thing for us, then, that this game's combat reminds us that there's some fun in being a jerk. Even better, Mighty Quest supports an unobtrusive free-to-play model, although a few drawbacks threaten to send this airborne lootfest crashing from the sky.
Stupid fun, though not particularly groundbreaking. It will certainly entertain those in need of a quick gaming fix, but won’t replace Diablo in your library any time soon

It is a fun and addictive game, where you can build your castle and raid others. I have not yet seen any games like this one..

Very fun and entertaining. Well, at least I think it is anyway. The gameplay is very well done, and this is one of the best free to play games I've played. I've not been playing for long, but I am very addicted. There are minor things that could be done with changing, for example:

When you go to attack a monster, sometimes you either won't move, or you run around it endlessly until you stop clicking the monster, stop moving and then try to attack it again.

The XP is easy to gain, but it also takes a while to level up. This is not a bad feature, as it shows you need to be dedicated to the game to reach those higher levels, much like most games. However, maybe reducing the amount of exp required to level up while a lower level, such as ranks 8-11 could be reduced slighty. (Just my opinion)

As a final score, I give this game a 9/10. With the first point changed so you can attack a monster while rushing fixed, I'm sure my score will go up to 10/10. The exp point really doesn't bother me too much, it's just a point I personally would like changed in the future for other people, but I know I don't speak for everyone when I write this.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S. This isn't like any other multiplayer game where you see other people, as far as I can tell. You work by yourself in castles, and get no teams (at least for the lower level castles, I'm not very high ranked so I do not know if this changes later on). You will be attacked by multiple people, which will lose you money, which is why you need to be active to really get anywhere with the game. But money is not very hard to get, which makes this a very good free to play game.

BTW This is not a multiplayer game.
WARNING: LONG READ
Very linear progressing game, due to limited choices in developing a castle or caracter there is nothing you can create to take your own path...
They have now changed the gamerules ripping me of my progress and making the game more lame, plus since they introduces validating after changes and leveling linked with your castle heart it is now no longer possible to have a 'large' castle with low level monsters. If you want to change anything you'll have to validate the castle, so making a quick change is no longer possible......
In short it went from a poor game to lame and uninteresting...and we are not even away from beta yet.
If you haven't got it GET SOMETHING ELSE.

Bought my chair years ago, luckely my carpenter doesn't come by once a month to ask me money for every time i sat in his chair (there is a counter build in)under the argument that he (or most of the times a greedy somebody else, but he who bought the 'legal' right) made it so many years ago and that was such hard work that he wants to be paid for it for the rest of his life, so he can sit on the beach.
Oh, and he also used poor quality paint, and the contract states that you have to pay him every year to repaint it and you are not allowed to do it yourself or force him to use quality paint....he can take away the chair any time you do not comply.
I would probably laugh at him, throw him & the chair out of my house while calling him a thief and build my own chair or just sit on the floor...

I like the looks and the slightly funny info of the game.
Might be something for people who want to play 5-10 minutes per day on the same game
But for all others.....
The way you should build your castle is very slow, about one move per day or per 2 days, if you want more you have to spend real money to get the game going.

But the real problem is the game itself:
Due to the slow buildup of your castle and/or hero it will probably not remain in my playlist for very long. The earning models to buy gems to speed up the process if you want to have some development in the game makes it unplayable. Same goes for the upgrades of the mines, in the beginning it's manageble, but somewhere near 140 per hour you have to wait 6 hours to get 14 pc more per hour, this takes 70 hours to reclaim the loss of 6 hours, with the following upgrades it gets even worse.
The whole game seems to revolve around getting virtual money, in the form of blue, green and yellow money, so you can progress.
I have to wait 2-3 days now and login twice a day to upgrade part A and then wait another 2-3 days (with 2 logins a day) for part B...when i'm at part D or F i can then build one extra room......for people who enjoy waiting for the grass to grow, this is it.
Oh, i can also spend real money to speed this up, good luck big spenders and bling lovers.

So you want people that don't pay extra to only reach a high level if they put in a few hundred hours at least and for real money they can build that in a few hours....it's the death of gaming.
Where the basis should be that you start with equal chances and may the best win, here it is: may the foolish with deep pockets win.
I am now at the point that the losses per day are equal to the earnings, if i want to proceed i have to log a lot of attacks (some 30 in one day) on other castles or spend real money.

As you can see, most positive reviews are from people who have only played it 2-3 hours, ask them again IF they ever reach 10 or more hours if it's fun.
To bad the gaming industry is so greedy, they destroy gameplay in the hopes they can get rich over your frustration.

About games that play online only, it is a concept where you pay money to get NOTHING.
You should never pay for that, unless you like to sponsor greedy and possibly lazy people.

Let's make that comparison in real life, you buy a new game like agricola (only single player i know, but this also works for multiplayer game like monopoly, but in the rules it states that sometimes your game is just gone for a few days or unusable for hours because:
a) you don't have the key to open the box and you have to connect via internet to the company, they will verify and send you an unlock code IF there servers are online, otherwise get a deck of cards because you can't open the box.
b) the company decides when they want to change something to the game and don't give you an access key to the box until you have accepted the new board/rules/pieces and have send proof of destroying the now, according to the company, obsolete parts of the game.
c) if you leave the game unlocked out of the box without logging moves somebody from the company drives by and closes and locks the game for you or takes it away because you broke the unreasonable and sometimes illegal licence agreement.
d) if the company thinks they have earned enough or that the profit is too low they push a button and all sold games are locked forever...in basic they destroy your property or at least making it impossible to use. but you may be able to buy the same game with more detailled visuals if you want and sign an even more absurd and immoral licence agreement.
e) you have to have a working internet connection even when you are at home playing agricola or monopoly with some friends and log all moves made by the players otherwise some people from the company come by and take away the game. Possibly if your internet connection is made via an android machine they also want to know your exact gps location while playing monopoly, all phonenumbers and calls you make or recieve, when you scratched your left ear, your eternal soul and your firstborn child.
f) if you want to win at monopoly you just pay the company and they give you different 'chance' cards and an instruction to make it look like you just picked them from the deck or maybe just programmable dice.....those naturally selfdestruct after use, so buy some more....


If the servers are down you only have some waisted harddisk space. If you are somewhere without internet you can't play although you pay....if it's a game you want to play again years later you suddenly discover that the servers are down and will never come up again. USELESS and in my opinion theft.

Singleplayer games that have no offline mode have no right of existence and should not be sponsored....


You used to have multiplayer games with lan capability, so you could play at home with friends, just as with monopoly and even start a server after years of being abandoned.....i'm almost wondering where my cd of RTCW is, although the graphics are crap the gameplay is good and after all these years it still works.
