Nimble Quest is a mobile game ported to the PC.

This is basically a modified snake game, you need to avoid the walls and try your best not to let your heroes collide with the marching enemy troops. The objective is to kill a number of enemies to proceed to another stage. You grow your snake through picking up heroes. The more heroes you have the easier for you to kill the enemies, on the other hand, this also makes you more vulnerable to getting hit because the number of enemies increases after each stage.

I liked the concept of this game having a more than a dozen of heroes, each having different attack patterns. Each of them are also upgradable to help you survive the game in later stages. Decent game best played on idle breaks.

One of the best - if not the best - casual games i've played.
The concept is very simple, it's like an old Snake game.

But in this case, instead of snake sections, each part is an RPG inspired unique character, with their own upgrade option, increasing abilities and providing you to progress through the apparentely endless difficulty increase in the same bunch of scenarios.

You grind to upgarde the 16 different characters - the maximum of your party - by playing with them and collecting gems while playing to purchase them.

You cannot touch your own party - you kill them. You have to avoid different enemies on each scenario, each one with their own abilities and also avoid contact to don't get killed. You collect coins which you can use to purchase essential power-ups on hard levels or even skip scenarios, as well as hire party members for the next level.

Although the game have it's own currency, it have not something like micro payments or any indications of it. It's a pure grindy game as it is.

Funny, addictive, awesome time killer.
Or when you just wanted to recline the chair playing some funny arrow-based casual game.

Absolutely recommended, except it's not your genre.

Yes, this is a port of a mobile game but don't roll your eyes just yet. The authors tweaked this game to require less grind, got rid of microtransactions, and made this version more generous (e.g., red gems are included from the start). And the controlls are actually better on the PC for this case since you get more precision in moving your snake with a keyboard.

This game is a new twist on the old classic "Snake" but instead of a snake, you are a conga line made up of different heroes. Heroes will randomly appear, and you simply touch them to add them to your conga line. You die if you run into walls/monsters or if the health of your lead hero reaches zero. The most exciting part of this game is trying to grow you line and finding the random power-ups. You can be near death or overwhelmed and then suddenly a power-up saves the day.

If you sometimes just want a quick game to jump into, this game is perfect for a 15 minute session. Also, there is an arena mode to this game where you can join a top guild to earn more gold.

This game taught me not to turn my nose up to mobile ports. Fun is fun regardless of where the concept was first presented, especially if the controlls and price are fair. 8/10

Simple premise, addicting as hell and more fun than it should be, NIMBLE QUEST is a fantastic re-imaginiing of the SNAKE game concept...sucking minutes of your life away as you try desperately not to commit the Human Centipede and take out your own chain of heroes by running into the back of the group...Responsive controls, power ups and heroes with variable individual abilities, this is simply too fun to pass up. Play in spurts with a controller, to avoid thumb blisters. Awesome...

This is one of the best simple games on steam. Especially because it is fantastic. This is the classic snake game but you have to attack with a snake made of heroes you collect. There are some sweet pick ups to collect and coins. Wonderful concept. I really recommend this game. It is worth your time. Trust me. I played it and have a pretty decent opinion on matters.

Remember how much time you spent playing Snake on your old phone?
Imagine it in full colour, with added attack features and power-ups and a system to improve your snake parts or make your snake longer and harder.
Also, it becomes ludicrously cheap in sales.

The game:
- I never thought that Snake would make a solid comeback and it's even done in an enjoyable form.
- Easy to jump in and play a simple game.
- Has some simple yet satisfying features such as hero and collectable upgrades.
- The graphics are good and the sound is fine.

Controls:
- I played it with a PS3 controller and it's much better than keyboard and mouse.
- Get the "MotioninJoy drivers" and the "Better DS3" tool to configure the controller easily.

Verdict:
- It's an old school classis done in a new enjoyable way with steam cards and controller support.
- I got Nimble Quest cheap in a sale, however it's worth it's original price.
- 8,5/10.

WARNING :: This game will get very addicting very quickly. There is tons of levels that increase in difficulty every time whiel unlocking another new unique character after beating it. I wouldn't buy it for the full $5 but I definitely recommend getting it on sale. Tons of replay-ability and loads of fun!

7/10
Loads of fun but gets repetitive very quickly.

The biggest problem I have with the game is how much grinding you have to do in order to get anywhere.
It is another ♥♥♥♥♥♥ mobile port so what did I expect? The options menu has only; sound on/off, music on/off and tutorial on/off. So make sure your screen can handle 720p because that is what the game is looked at. You can't run it in full-screen or rebind the controls (only arrow keys and WASD) because that will ruin the idle way of playing the game through the developer's eyes.

Shame on you Nimble Bit!

It does have support for the Logitech F710 out of the box, so that is something nice I guess.
The game-play is simple, but punishingly hard, after two hours of playing I only got to “castle 1” which is the fifth level out of 14? The problem is that the enemies have too much HP so I can't kill them fast enough until the whole map is swarming with them and I just die.

It is possible to level up the heroes, but that too takes ages to do because of how little experience point they gain each kill. It is possible to bypass it with gems (in game currency), but it costs a lot. They have three levels each, which will increase attack speed, strength, range or add a special passive ability like HP drain or stun.

The levels are not that big so it's a bit annoying that the game can't be set to a higher resolution so the whole level can be viewed at once. Therefore, it is very easy to walk into enemy archers or mages and end up dying because they can't be seen.

You can continue form where you died, but it costs a special coin to do so. Which you can gain as a random drop or buy them in the shop for 1000 gems each. The gems can also be used to upgrade the heroes if you don't want to grind for enemy's over and over. It costs 1000 gems the first level and 10.000 gems for level two, don't know what it is for level three since I only have played it for about two hours. You can also buy increased time for some of the item the emery's drop at random at the shop for 320 first tier, 720 for second tier, 1520 for third tier, and 2530 for fourth tier, and the last and fifth tier I don't know. (the prices may be off, but you get the idea of how they increase.) I got around 1000 – 1300 gems (depended on how many chests-drop I got) before the fifth level and died.

So you are better off starting from level one and using the coins in the arena or buffs before a level. The arena it's a 24hour, one life, clan war fight. You have to have gotten to “courtyard 1” before you can enter and spend your coins on it, then you can choose a clan to join or make a new one by typing it in the box that shows up. The arena is a one life, daily challenge, where you get one random hero to use.


+ It looks OK.
+ The fonts and menus looks nice a bit big maybe.
+ Supports Logitech F710, bought joystick and directional keys.
+ Has 16 characters to choose from, must be unlocked.
+ Has 14 levels.
+ Don't take too long to beat a level.

- Don't have a resolution option, so it is stuck at 720p.
- Can't set it to full-screen, so it's stuck in window mode.
- Can't rebind the keys, only arrow keys or WASD for movement.
- Slow to progress further into the game.
- Slow to level up the heroes.
- Has a special coin for continuing and arena mode.
- Pickups only works on the first hero, making the shield useless.
- Game never told me if the upgrades works on the heroes you add to the line.

Running on version 1.0.8

I cannot recommend this weird snake clone because of how slow the game is.

Although it is just a ported mobile game, NimbleBit made NimbleQuest the cheapest game on the store and it's wonderful.

It's snake...with swords, bows, mages, lances, skeletons, fire elementals and... I R8 8/8 M9

This is a interesting take on the game of snake. Instead of adding mroe lines you add more characters that you unlock after every mission. Each one you can levle up and make more powerful. It makes the game quite interesting and you have to do a lot more thinking than with a typical snake game where you just need to eat without bashing into the walls or yourself.

It's a fun little game if you need something to keep you entertained for a while.
