MinuteQuest - Indie app of the day
What is MinuteQuest?
MinuteQuest is a very old school, 2D RPG with minimal game play mechanics. It features a lot of bad guys, a lot of equipment, and even a little bit of a story line. It’s currently free in the Google Play Store.
Here’s how MinuteQuest works. You play with a giant menu screen that also functions as your controller. You tap the right side to make your hero move forward and the left side to make him flee. As you fight, you earn gold and experience, level up, learn new skills and get more powerful. Eventually you can buy things which is a plus. Otherwise, you’re essentially just tapping and letting the hero kill things. It can get monotonous but this is a time waster and not a full fledged game so it’s somewhat forgivable.
As you play you’ll obviously get stronger and different equipment combinations offer different stat bonuses. The extremely minimal interface means that this is a tiny game clocking in at just under 4MB. It’s not very entertaining at the beginning but gets more enjoyable as you get more items to equip and get up there in levels so you may have to grind a bit before the game becomes fun.
