50 cents for a snake game is a bargain, as this snake game has been spiced up considerably. Some would even say it's a solid snake game
Great graphics, fun ways to upgrade both your current hero and the bonuses you find along the way and the quick gameplay makes this a fun time waster.

A different take on the classic snake game, Nimble quest is a simple yet sometimes difficult game where you take lead as one of several heroes, collect heroes, treasure, and defeat enemies. I grabbed this game when it was on sale(currently still is at the time of writing) for $0.50, and its definitely worth the 5 bucks they are asking for it. For 50 cents its an absolute steal, a very fun time waster where you'll find some runs ending almost as quickly as they started. While others you'll see your hero snake grow into the double didgets, increasing the difficulty of dodging yet making it easier to slay enemies. Worth the asking price and I've had a lot of fun with it so far. Definitely a game for short bursts.

Pros:
-Simple yet fun gameplay
-Nice customization
-Easy to learn, yet difficult to fully master
-New and interesting take on the snake genre
-Can be played in short bursts or long runs, depeding on your interest
-Nice soundtrack

Cons:
-Mobile port, options menu is lacking severely
-Simplistic art style
-Heroes aren't unique, follow similar styles.

Just bought this for 50 cents.

Very few things in life can be bought with 50 cents. The only thing I can think of is those little toys or stickers from the vending machines you see in grocery stores.

50 cents will buy you the best game of snake you will ever play in your life! There is a satisfying progression system, where you can upgrade your offenses/defenses and various aspects such as the gold/loot pick up. Its a perfect pick up and play game if you are ever bored waiting for the Dota 2 queue. Bite sized goodness is what it really is, and its not acting like its something else.

Intresting new take on a old genre, it takes the old Snake game and adds rpg elements. Music is fitting and so are the graphics. It does seem like a moble port but a good one. Pays for itself with cards with the current sale

More or less the old game "Snake" but with collectables and leveling up ^_^"

It is worth a look see...appears easy but can be very challenging.

Nimble quest is an interesting game, but ultimately one I don't think is worth your time.

The game has a number of good points, it's well animated for what it is, the heros are varied and each one is distinct enough to be interesting, and the characters even gain new sprites when they level up.

But all of that is lost behind the appalling game design that stems from being made for mobiles. You can spend 'tokens' to buy large boosts to damage, speed and health for runs through the game. You can also spend them to continue your current run, but the cost doubles each time you do so, starting from one. Tokens are rare drops, you get perhaps one every five levels. So you're already stressed for tokens if you just use them as drops. However, you can buy tokens for 'gems'. Gems are your other ingame currency, which can be used to level up.

At a certain point in the game you simply need to level up and use the boosts to progress. And that means grinding. Lots and lots of grinding.

Now I'm not opposed to grinding in general. After all, playing the game is why we're here, so being forced to play the game isn't bad, of itself. The problem comes when you have to to a number of 'bad' runs without spending tokens on the boosts so that you can then do a good run in order to get to the next level and unlock the next character.

So it's a nice idea, it's a nice game, but you can smell the scent of addiction mechanics all over it. And it just isn't a good thing.

Nimble quest. Worth your money, but not your time.

Fun game. Cute little characters and a nice change of pace from violent shoot em ups. For 49 cents this game is a steal. Not really sure I'd pick it up for 4.99 though. Get it while it's .49 cents. I think it's worth it.

One of the devs posted on reddit, seemed like a cool guy. 49 cents? Hell, I'll support a fellow redditor for 49 cents...

Played game, freakin AWESOME. Super adorable pixel work and very fun gameplay. Bought 5 extra gift copies to give away so that I'm paying closer to full price, deffo worth it!

Try it, can't go wrong for 50 cents but I'd say this is worth it even for the full 5 dollar price :]

Cheap and fun... I played it a fair bit right now and I enjoyed it but it seems a tad too grindy and finnicky in the way the conga line gets when it starts getting bigger with all the enemies on screen in the later levels.

Still, not bad at all and fun in spurts to be sure. Getting the heroes maxed out at 3 stars takes far too long for my taste though.

It's the equivalent of a flash game. I picked it up for 50c and got a solid 6 hours out of it before saying "Okay I'm done".

It's decent and even at full price it hits my base requirement of "a dollar per hour of gameplay". I wouldn't recommend you buy it at full price, but since I got it at 50c I'm not complaining at all.

All Pay Shop mechanics have been removed, and the Coins (pay currency) drop frequently enough that I never found myself wishing for a new way to "buy" Coins. So it is fairly balanced in that aspect.

The game has no end, so it's a classic "Score" game.
Easiest to start with the mage until you get the engineer, at which point he's the best starter I found.
Keep your Hero levels fairly even, and pour ALL your money into the Shop (outside of buying Coins).

Have fun.

I bought this game for 50 cents and it is definitely not worth even that.
It seems to be a poorly made mobile port for a game that isn't much special in the first place. There are almost no game options, (no fullscreen, no music slider, no grafix options)
The actual gameplay is pretty meh, you walk around as if it was a snake game while your guys shoot at stuff, thats about it. The only real progression is buying upgrades 2 get moar mun$ when u do stuf
Theres also in game purchases, yeah those purchases. Where you buy the gems. Yeah, those ones

-Bad port
-Meh game
-Gemz
-No good progression
-No options settings
-5$ is a lot of money for a game that isn't worth .50c
-Also the music is meh

This game is another example of how Indies can become much more successful than AAAs.

10/10 :D
