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...

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.

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

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.

As being GOTY for 2013/14/15, I recommend this game, calling, and knowing, it's better than most games out there.

My views on this game
-Beautiful graphics, 2440p for sure
-Great story with plenty of depth and development
-Lots of classes to choose from
-Realistic explosions, by co-creator Michael Bay
-Top of the line animations
-Monster/Character design is magnificent
-All round 69.69/10 IGN

10/10 would pay $69.69 for this amazing inspirational game plus an additional $0.69 for the great could-be DLC's

I bought this game for $0.49 a while back. I haven't finished it yet, but I think I have a pretty good idea for this recommendation. Ctrl+F "TL;DR" to skip reading.

Nimble Quest is also available as a free-to-play game on mobile devices, and that's where I'll start. Your purchase on Steam gives you the "Red Gem" DLC from mobile for free, and there are no microtransactions after that. You can't pay real money to unlock additional heroes or to buy more tokens. There isn't a demo of this game on Steam, but you can try it for free on iOS/Android if you have a compatible device.

The gameplay is pretty simple. You start with a small roster of three heroes, of which you pick one to be the leader. You start in a field and your ever-moving hero runs near (not into!) some enemies and starts attacking until they explode and vanish, leaving behind a gem you pick up. Or maybe there's a powerup that gives you a temporary boost. Or another hero. Picking up the hero adds one 'car' to your train and also amplifies your attack power, but also gives you a tail to worry about. This is an arcadey RPG Snake mashup. Kill enemies, gather heroes, get gems and tokens, power up, and die. Aim for the highest kill counts and gem collections! Clear stages to unlock more heroes!

Since this is a game of Snake, you have to mind the walls and your own tail. If you run into a wall, an enemy, or if your leader gets hit too many times and runs out of health, you die and Game Over. Assisting heroes have the same mortality concerns, so it's very possible that an enemy train can cut through yours and kill several allies. And your leader running into your train will kill the assisting heroes you touch, so careful maneuvering is key. I found keyboard controls much better than swiping on mobile, and you can even use a controller if you wanted. Controls were WASD or the arrow keys to move, Enter and Escape to pause.

The big part of the game is killing things to get gems. Clear a stage, get a small bonus of more gems. Green gems are worth one, blue five, red ten. Gems go to boosting powerups, giving heroes permanent upgrades, and buying tokens. Powerups range from instant enemy-killing bombs to freezing all enemies in place to a potion to heal allies of damage. All of these upgrades are pretty costly, but that's the name of the game. And having the Red Gem DLC already means it's going to go somewhat faster than F2P. Tokens are used for buying continues when you game over, entry to the Arena, buying buffs that last the current run, buying random unlocked heroes in the between-stages screen, and to skip stages you've cleared already.

The stages are square for the most part, with some exceptions like Graveyard having some obstacles or Courtyard having small alcoves, but the enemies are more interesting. You have damage-sponge knights with big swords, or stationary archers that'll shoot arrows at your allies, or healers who don't attack but will heal enemies you haven't killed, or fast-moving rats or so on. You have the same if smaller variety of heroes, though they shine a bit more with upgrades since they can do different things like explode and take out enemies on death, or soak even more damage, or heal on dealing damage. There don't seem to be any boss battles in this game.

Difficulty is pretty linear. The game starts out slow with spawns and introduces new enemy types at a decent rate, but you'll quickly have to learn how to manage multiple enemy trains and your allies' HP. You'll run into some cases where you just can't advance through a stage without spending gems on upgrades or tokens on buffs, but in the latter case, the game at least is pretty generous on its drops. You can also earn tokens through the game's only form of 'multiplayer' in the Arena. You're put into a Guild to start, which is nothing more than "#NAME" or whatever, but the game autopicks a hero you may or may not have and then a set of enemies and you just aim for the high score. You don't play with anyone, but it's a form of co-op if you think about it. Depending on how well you did in your guild and how well your guild did worldwide, you get a payment in tokens.

I also thought it was a cute touch with the descriptions you get on how you died, like "Merida tried to knock over a healer and lost" or "Uther made friends with a hairy rat" or so on. There seems to be a death description for every stage and every enemy, possibly for dying to its attacks and for running into it. It was also a nice touch how the hero sprites change slightly with each upgrade, like Ulrich's armor getting golden additions and his sword getting bigger or whatnot.

TL;DR: For 49 cents, this game was a steal. $5 may not be so bad, too. It's got pixel graphics, tight control, decent music, and there's quite a bit of replay value. There is a good variety of enemies to kill and be killed by, and buying upgrades does have a noticeable effect on your heroes and powerups. It is admittedly grindy and can be repetitive, but I don't think it's a game you can just sit down and play for hours on end. It's perfect for if you have to wait for another game to install or update, and you might find yourself playing a little longer than you expected, trying to beat your last high score or get just enough gems to get that upgrade you've been wanting. I know I didn't pay much, but I really got my money's worth out of the game. And I'm still not done.
