Let’s imagine one has had a long day at office and they are stuck in jam with nothing but their phones. Apart from music, a game is one thing that can keep one’s mind off the hated traffic. My latest addiction is Nimble Quest. It is a free game on play store which has a similarity to the game of Snake on those old Nokia phones, except that it is way better. This game takes the simplicity of snake’s mechanics and adds variety unlike the monotonous snake, to turn it into something more interesting.
Nimble Quest centres around guiding a group of heros around a plane with simple swiping controls, turning your heroos to the left and right. Movements and attacks are both on auto pilot and the goal is to dispatch enemies that randomly appear in the environment. Take out a certain number of bad guys and move to the next level.
Players initially choose one hero and recruit others while they play, with each new hero following the other in line.
Heros are defeated if an enemy comes in to contact with them and the game ends if one’s lead hero is dispatched. Initially, players have a limited number of heros to play with but more get unlocked the further one progresses.
