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.

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.

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.

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.

Fun little game. Easy to learn, difficult to master, and, unlike the original Centipede, it saves your games if you want to leave it and come back to it later.

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.
