    When you take the sum of all the great things that Nimble Quest does, you end up with an excellent casual title that’s easily approachable while having just enough strategy elements to want to keep you coming back to beat your high score one more time.

    Now add colorful retro-inspired visuals and music that would have fit right in with the best games from the 90s, and Nimble Quest is another quality addition to NimbleBit's growing smartphone and tablet library.

    Nimble Quest nails the classic arcade experience, while providing fresh flair perfectly suited for iOS.

    There's a seriously potent fun factor to Nimble Quest. Leaving the Bitizens behind without hesitation, this game shows off NimbleBit's mastery of the things that make bite-sized gaming tick, and blows the doors wide open on what we can expect to see from them in the future.

    NimbleBit has another free-to-play winner on their hands, with a combination of Snake and RPG elements in the new Nimble Quest.

    From a very classic concept, Nimble Quest adds its own features that make it one of these apps that stays on our iDevice for weeks.

    It doesn't have the same laid-back attitude as its stablemates, but Nimble Quest is all the more entertaining for that.

    While nothing too deep, Nimble Quest is a lot of fun as its throwing RPG upgrade elements onto the game of Snake, which everyone should be all too familiar with.

    If you enjoyed Snake, you’ll probably enjoy this-- maybe even more.

    Nimble Quest is a cute little game, but that's about it: it lacks the sheer originality and refined gameplay of Nimblebit's previous titles, and therefore is a game you might put down way too soon.

    With the look of a classic RPG and the heart of an arcade favorite, Nimble Quest is an engaging free-to-play curio that's a hair less gripping than either influence might suggest.

    On one hand, this game is free, so the fact that it requires a small investment to enjoy might not seem like a big deal. On the other hand, even if you pay in, the core gameplay isn't satisfying, and your rewards aren't compelling.

    Nimble Quest is a fun twist on the classic Snake game, with the random heroes you collect making it a different enough experience each time to keep you coming back.

    Nimble Quest is cute and compelling, but it’s also a cynical complication of a classic design.

    Hectic action and a few but well designed power-ups make for a really entertaining experience. Highly recommended.
