There is no quest.
I didn't get to run.


Now, I know a game's title shouldn't necessarily be the best descriptor of a game, but if your name is this generic you expect it to be justified. It is not.

QuestRun is a good looking level-based turn based combat action game where you control up to 3 heroes as they fight through a series of waves of enemies. Combat is automatic except for unit positioning (there are 3 lanes, each lane can hold 1 hero and switching can be done at any time) and special abilities that charge up based on hits landed (1 per hero).
So far so good (or... So far so "I guess this is alright").

It starts falling apart when you realize that this is all there is.
There are 4 dungeons, which just boil down to a series of combat waves. No exploration of any kind in between.
Beyond that there are a number of optional quests that you use to unlock alternate forms of your heroes... which boil down to combat waves where your hero roster is predefined.

Successfully finishing a level awards you with gold, crowns and crystals (the last one only if it was a dungeon) which are used to buy things in the store, passively unlock dungeons and quests and buy special things in the store respectively.
If this sounds like a cash-store model that could support in-app purchases then you would be correct. Even though these features are (fortunately) not present in the Steam version the original Mobile app definitely had it.
Finishing a level also resets ALL character progress, which within a level takes the form of equipment and a simplistic experience system.

This means that, assuming you win, your hard work (levels can take well up to half an hour and allows no mid-level saving) will reward you with a measly bag of gold which will net you very little in the game shop.
To give an example, dungeon gold gain is 200-300 per victory and a new hero class can easily cost 5000 gold.
The currency rate appears to still be on "cash shop" mode, meaning what progress there is is very slow.

Other than the combat there is NOTHING there.
No semblance of a plot. No exploration. No backstory for the heroes, the world, the dungeon, the enemies, the quest.
I was sorely disappointed by this game and do not recommend it.

Basics

QuestRun: a lite-RPG game with turn-based elements.

Featuring bright, colorful visuals with appropriate music, QuestRun boasts to be a "Challenging and fast-paced" game that "is unlike anything you have played before." Does it really deliver on that promise? Let's find out.

Gameplay is simple, offering only a small handful of attack types (Melee, Ranged, Magic). Both the Melee and Magic weapons attack the enemy directly in front of the user, with Ranged weapons allowing the character to assist an ally when no enemy is in front of them. A simple, but interesting mechanic.

Characters also get a Special ability which can directly affect combat via team Heals, charming enemies, cast fire spells, or other abilities. Most also get access to a combat Stance, which can toggled on and off to grant a variety of bonus stats (usually at the cost of others).

Little strategy is really needed due to the game's simple mechanics, with character placement generally being the most important choice you can make. Fortunately, slow combat allows plenty of time to make adjustments during a fight (with an option of 3x game speed for the bored).

There are a variety of stats that can be utilized to improve your combat experiance; primaries such as Health, Defense, Magic Defense, Attack - and others such as Luck, Speed, Special, and Charisma.

After bashing faces in, you can use that hard earned gold in the Meta Shop for stuff such as new characters, pets, and other features.


Done Well

  • Great Visuals - Clean, colorful graphics make this game visually appealing.
  • Gameplay - Simple, but fun and enjoyable.
  • Achievements - Uninspired kill X or do Y, but something realistic to work towards and easy to understand. Good for completionists.
  • Music - Nothing amazing, but it fits the game's atmosphere and repetative listening from playing the game won't get irritating. Always a plus for a game.
  • Cards - Despite the store page not being updated, QuestRun does support Steam Trading Cards. A nice addition for those that enjoy them.


Where it Went Wrong

Here is where the otherwise pleasent experience breaks down and ultimately sways the recommendation into a negative rating.

  • No Cloud Saves - QuestRun makes use of Steam Achievements and Trading Cards, but failed to include an important feature such as Cloud Saves, which becomes important when trying to play on multiple devices or preventing data loss.
  • Optionless - Complete lack of game options such as sound volume, game resolution, or even fullscreen/window modes (no fullscreen support). Missing such basic functionality makes QuestRun feel like it was ported from a mobile platform, which is surprisingly inaccurate since the game is NOT available on android or iOS.
  • Poor Performance - The game suffers from performance issues, often causing severe studdering, slowdowns, frequent freezes, and even memory leaks (that result in crashes)
  • MORE Bugs - A handful of other prevelent bugs exist: waves not progressing, characters not attacking, stats not saving, progress being lost, game not installing, game not launching, among others.


Bottomline

QuestRun is a simple, yet interesting game that suffers from a lot of game disruptive bugs which detract from an otherwise enjoyable experience.

Unless the plethora of problems get addressed, I recommend users avoid QuestRun.

Good casual Flash game, nothing more. I don't recommend this game as a purchase, but if you can get it for free, it's definitely a challenge to play and has a decent presentation. The game offers very little permanent progression, but that adds to the challenge of seeing how far you can get into a quest with the default items or slightly upgraded items from the unlockable shop. You can also unlock a few extra character choices and a few bonus 'pets' which further enhance the gameplay with many strategy elements. I personally like the rogue character because he can get tons of items from the enemies. Keep the rogue at a low damage rating and get a shield character to protect him and you can rack up near endless items for leveling up your characters.

Now, there are some bad points to this game. The first you'll notice is the lack of an exit button. Of course, that's no big deal, because you can click the window's close button. That made me think about full-screen, but it turns out that the game does not allow full-screen mode. Beyond the technical flaws already mentioned, the gameplay elements aren't as explained as they should be. Some of the unlockables required a currency that I was not gaining from anything I did in the game, and I had to look up guides to figure out what was required to get that currency. I quit the game after several hours of repetitively killing the same monsters trying to get characters through the first dungeon and admittedly failing close to the end. I found it a little frustrating that there was no continue option to start with the same characters at the moment before the level they died on. It took a lot of experimentation to figure out a strategy to get through the bulk of the first level and I still could not keep my characters alive, so I decided to quit and play something that has more entertainment value rather than keep playing only to grind through the same level over and over again. That said, I found the game fun for maybe 2 hours, and I would play it again if I didn't have so many other games I want to play which could be a lot more fun.

If you can get this game for less than $2, it may be worth that price, but otherwise, I suggest you find something more worthwhile.

Auto-pilot combat feels boring and non-interactive. Along with the lack of meaningful progression and ability to choose your party (party is randomized for some reason) leads to a mediocre RPG. Overall, it's just not fun to play.

Skating the edge of unfairly hard and well balanced. Making it through the main missions and side quests is a balance of getting lucky with level up effects, and making the most of hero powers. With some help from the guides, and a combo of assassin and blacksmith, I was able to make a little progress. After that it felt like there was a 'right' way to progress, which kind of made me lose interest. Bad, lazy reviewer.

Positives: interesting and simple mechanics - swap characters to balance damage, activate powers, and level up. Complete missions for bonus powers, and to buy characters and other advantages. The side quests are tightly balanced, so you won't succeed on the first try or ten, but by the skin of your teeth when you do.

Negatives: feels padded and a bit grindy, for those simple mechanisms. Not all characters and abilities are useful. Significant random element in leveling, and party make-up.

Ok so I have a really high threshold for bad games. My friends will say a game is terrible and i'll defend it, because I have bad taste.

With that said, this is a terrible game. I hate to be one of those "omg a mobile app game!!!" because I don't care. That's a dumb complaint and those are dumb threads, so stop posting them, but this is a game where if you made that thread, i'd agree with you.

It doesn't translate well on a computer at all because gameplay consists of switching spots occassionally with your three characters and waiting for them to ever so slowly kill the thing in their way (It's so bad that even the 3x Speed battles take minutes), only to do the same thing again.

And again.

And again.

If you got this game in a bundle, just idle for the cards and delete this game from your harddrive and never look back.

I play these types of games when I am trying to fall asleep since I have sleep issues, but this game is boring it's bad boring.. or maybe badoring. I may call Merriam-Webster to see if I can get that word into the next dictionary.

Anyway. Please don't buy this game. Donate the money to charity instead. Donate it to a Multiple Sclerosis charity... any charity. Just don't buy this game. Even if the Steam sale is 90% off. That money is better going to charity.

A game with all the negatives of a f2p mobile app, except priced as a $9 purchase.

Gameplay is very basic. You can buy upgrades, but the prices are insanely high compared to the money that you make per stage. Random chance may be a strong factor; I honestly didn't play long enough to find out

The game just isn't interesting or engaging.

I'd lie if I said this commend is for everyone.
The game is great to waste 10-20 mins in a break at work and you really have to be INTO this kind of games to enjoy it. I'm kind of the farmer type in these games so I enjoy my time farming the first dungeon to buy stuff in the shop.
Mechanichs are kind of meh. The game basically plays in it's own and you just have to press 1-2 buttons and switch the heroes positions.

More info in the other comments in which people complain :D

- Terrible graphics
- Uninteresting gameplay
- Massive data leakage, making the game run at 33%
- Auto-play, yes actually doing something is optional
- No options menu
- Full screen unavailable, and the in-game hints make fun of you for even requesting such a feature!
- Developer says game is fine, ignores bugs, no support.

Would buy again.

Decent concept, but it's tuned too hard at the start for me to enjoy it. Try it if you enjoy hard-to-win scenarios.

Luckily I bought this game on sale for very little money. The upgrades to your characters are temporary, giving you very little option to customise your characters to make them stronger. Basically your ability to win relies on RNG, which is just time consuming and makes for very boring, repetitive gameplay until you actually find yourself winning.

I tried to get into this game but it just didn't have much to offer. I just didn't have much fun and I didn't think it was polished enough to tough it out to see if it got better down the line.

Een hele leuke game,
De eerste 20 min. vond ik al geweldig.
Zeker een aanrader, maar ik zou hem wel in de
sale kopen heb ik gedaan. Voor maar 2,09 euro.
Een van de beste game die ik heb gekocht.

Let's make a list of Pros and Cons, shall we?

Pros:
-Semi-challenging gameplay that feels rewarding
-A varied roster of characters with some unique abilities
-Fast paced combat that is definitely different from games I've played (Could be a con if you don't like fast games)
-Some replay value in the Lost Treasure randomized mode
-Random events that can help or hurt your dungeon runs

Cons:
-As of right now there is NO options menu.
-Game was clearly made for 720p and when the window is increased to 1080p there is a drop in quality.
-Feels and plays kind of like a mini-game/flash game. Not that there's too much wrong with that, I just thought I'd throw it out there


Overall, this game is worth your time if the idea of it interests you. It's face paced, semi-randomized, and quite a bit of fun. I would recommend that you look up some gameplay on it to see if you are really interested in this sort of game. Right now it's on sale until April 25th, so I highly recommend buying it sooner rather than later.

"I've never been so disappointed with a purchase, I'd rather play FIFA, and I HATE football/soccer"

Oh boy this is going to be a long one...

There is quite a lot wrong with this game, that simply makes it boring to play.

My largest issue with this game is how it plays. Combat plays automatically while you do the strats (position your party, equip items, use items and skills), and thats the extent of your control aside for a few more minor things. At first that doesn't sound so bad, you might need to do certain things a certain way due to abilities your enemies might have. But this game has dumbed down everything that could potentially be challenging outside of direct combat:

- Each character has a single skill. one. ONE!!!!!!! (I found that each actually has a team buff/debuff, but all of them weren't thought out very well, 2 classes even had the exact same one as well, which is a little bit silly).

- Your characters are selected for you. WHY? Whats worse you need to pay in-game currency for the ability to select your characters? I don't understand what purpose it serves. You could say that it is to ease the player into the game, but that is BS since the game throws a full party of 3 people and those people are randomly selected out of the ones you can use, that doesn't sound like easing in.

- Items stats are boring as f**k. Its a very simple add to damage, and any class can equip any weapon and shield and have it deal more damage than a weapon they would typically hold (I had a mage holding a sword that added 5 to damage. better than his staff).

- A inventory system that I wish never exsisted. When your party picks up an item (which isn't notified very well to the player) it is added to the rather small inventory space, items are queued from the top and once you fill your inventory and find another item, the oldest item in your inventory is removed. What if I wanted to keep a potion? How can I stratergise if you don't give me the means to do so? You can't even remove an item from your inventory to bump a potion back to the top in order to keep. Why can't I do that? Seriously? It just seems a little bit stupid that I have to get rid of a useful potion for a god-awful weapon.

Due to the lack of control the player has and the lack of information about how some of the game's simple game mechanics work during the tutorial, all combined with the simplicity of class and equipment stats and abilities... *sigh*

I can't really say much about this game in its favour other than the visuals are pretty solid and the music isn't too bad, but the game keeps looping the same tracks over and over, so theres that.

This game is bad, really bad. It's a bore to play and recommend none of you pick this up.
