A very enjoyable game taking the old snake gameplay mechanic and adding RPG elements to it such as stats and character and item upgrades. Simple on the surface with a bit of depth underneath, such as your attack and movement strategies.

I put about 5 hours into this game on my iPad before realizing it also made its way to Steam. I wouldn't say either format is preferable -- the swipe controls on the tablet of course are very suitable but the arrow keys (or joystick, or WASD) are just as spontaneous. I can't say the same for the mouse gestures though. Just a bit too much delay for it to be useful.

On the down side, this port feels like a quick dump to PC as there's no graphics or window options, no achievements and no cloud save. I still recommend the game for someone looking for casual fun, it's just too bad NimbleBit couldn't have put a bit (groan) more effort into the port.

This was originally a mobile game, and it really shows in the grindy upgrade system. So maybe you should play this on your phone, instead of on Steam. It’s still fun despite that though. It’s basically Snake, but instead of a snake, you control a line of warriors, where each has a unique attack that they spam at enemies. It’s actually quite a fun concept, and I played it longer than I thought I would. It would have been nice if they expanded on the game a bit for the Steam version though, as it really does feel like a mobile game.

This is one of those mobile games that i'm glad to see on Steam. Prejudices aside, "Nimble Quest" is a fresh "Snake" game. The PC version has NO in-game shop, that's why it's a good game for a good price.

As of this writing its 'Encore Day' of Steam's 2014 Summer Sale, I've purchased a ridiculous number of games this time around and despite having a backlog of hundreds of unplayed games, I just can't stop playing this dump 'Snake' game. Is this Good or Bad, I don't know.

Lazy 'donkey' phone port though, (seriously, for shame dev's) but whatever I've gotten my moneys worth of what is literally a poop at work.

Thought it looked cool from the video so I gave it a shot. Ended up playing it for more time than I thought I would. Kinda has a 10000000 progression feel to it which I enjoy. Seems like it will get pretty grindy at some point but that doesn't bother me. Also it seems people are hating because it was a freemium mobile game... that also doesn't bother me as the game I've played so far justifies the price.
