    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.
