    Everything about it has come together in a way that is absolutely flawless. This is an absolute must-have. There is no reason not to download it whatsoever.

    I've been quite addicted to Punch Quest, because it's insanely fun and challenging. I mean, what is better than punching everything in the face, Chuck Norris style? Nothing, that's what.

    The fantastic action, collectible skills and upgrades, loads of quests, customization options, and ridiculously fun scenarios make this a must-have offering.

    Punch Quest isn't the 'hardcore' game people have been itching for on the iOS platform, but it's the perfect blend of action-brawling and casual 'endless' gameplay all mixed up with a larger-than-life style that's hard not to enjoy.

    At the end of the day, I wasn't enamored by Punch Quest, but I enjoyed my time with it, and it has enough content to keep you going for a while. If you like endless runners and punching things, odds are you'll enjoy RocketCat's latest effort. If not, I doubt it'll make any convincing arguments to convert you.

    Punch Quest is a wonderful fast action romp for iOS that will keep drawing players in for a long time to come.

    Punch Quest isn't just good for a free-to-play game. It's good, full stop, infused with humour, depth and the most charming violence imaginable. Unless you're a skeleton knight, in which case the violence is offensive, troubling and needlessly graphic.

    It's actually hard to find a better game deal on Ios or Google Play right now.

    Punch Quest is what an endless runner would look like if you threw it into a time machine, spat it out in the early 1990s, and put it on an SNES cartridge. This goes well beyond the (masterful) 16-bit graphics to the ethos of the game itself.

    Certainly the best kind of F2P game. [Jan 2013, p.31]

    There might not be a better deal on iOS this year. Punch Quest delivers a wallop, all for free. It delivers a 1-2 combination of exceptional endless-running action and the sheer quantity of depth and additional content. It's a knockout.

    It's rare to see something this good for free, and with that being said, dismissing this game would be ill advised.

    That Punch Quest is free or not doesn't really matter: Rocketcat's last game is without any doubt one of the most polished, frantic and enjoyable running game on the App Store.

    Punch Quest is funny, addictive, and just plain fun. Turns out that the auto-runner and beat-'em-up genres were a match made in heaven.

    Whether you prefer old-school platformers or the new genre of auto-running games, Punch Quest is a magical, endlessly fun combination of the two.

    What I will say, is that you need to download this game now. Punch Quest needs to be on every iOS device you own. It's totally free, the only way the IAP could be less obtrusive is if they removed it entirely, and you'll fall in love with the game inside of the first minute of play. What's not to like about that?

    This is an amazing game. Great levels, great enemies, even bosses (I want more bosses!).
    Beautiful art design, very nice music. And the game
    play simply ROCKS!
    And riding a laser spitting dinosaur with a bald, bulky lady with a moustache is simply AWESOME.
