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.

Loving this! An inspired re-imagining of the old "snake" format of games; leading a line of heroes to destroy wandering enemies without running into them (or the walls) you unlock new heroes by finishing stages, and the heroes themselves can be levelled to improve survivability and damage output (upgrades are a fixed path per character and persist from run to run)

In game currency allows for upgrades and skipping levels or adding more heroes before a stage starts, as well as a few buffs that will last for the entire run (however short that may be)

Picked this up on sale for the utterly insane price of 39p HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ^_^

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.

Well that unexpedectly took up 6 hours of my evening, damn it.

I would say this is the best 0.39 pence I have ever spent but unfortunately that was spent on getting a street musician to sing 'Y.M.C.A' whilst I drunkenly danced like a ♥♥♥♥♥.

Close tho

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.

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.

This is a really fun game to kill some time.

The gameplay is pretty simple:

You control a hero of your choice. You automatically move and have to avoid enemies and obstacles as well as your own companions.
You'll attack enemies automatically once you're within range. The type of attack depends on the hero you chose.

From time to time you'll find more heroes to join your queue, up until you'll have a queue of 6 heros. (Update: You actually get a chance to upgrade this limit)

The enemies get harder the further your get and they start getting good attacks as well, so you have to plan your movement well so you don't touch anything or get hit by their attacks while still getting in a good position for your heroes to attack.

There are powerups that are dropped by enemies and you can upgrade these and your heroes with gems that you find in the game. You can also buy little buffs to help you out.

Overall, this is a really nice game. It's fun, not too hard, and not too complicated. Really good if you have a little time to kill.

Though I think it's better to play this game in small portions, since the gameplay is not that deep, otherwise you might get bored with it.

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

Very fun game. I talked everyone in my gamer house into buying it and now it's their go-to game for boredom and waiting in between finding servers.

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.

First Impressions:

"Snake" on steroids, plain and simple. I like the leveling and unlock mechanics as it gives me a reason to keep playing. I also like that the heroes each have different ways of attacking nearby enemies, giving the game a bit more strategic flavor. Certainly worth the fifty cents I paid.

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.
