    8-bit retro adventure game inspired by Zelda 2 and Megaman. Discover the endless secrets on Urele Island!

    Elliot can't diebut he's still running out of time. In Elliot Quest, the victim of a rare curse must find a cure before he's transformed into a demon.

    After Elliot's wife disappears, he falls sick and attempts to take his own life--only to discovers that he can't die. Plagued by nightmares and growing weaker by the day, Elliot seeks out a local Sage, who tells him that he's the victim of a rare curse. A demon called a Satar is slowly consuming Elliot's vitality. If Elliot can't find a cure to the curse before it's too late, he will become a Satar. His only hope is to ask for the help of one of the island's Guardians, who have kept the Satar from taking over Urele.

    Explore a vibrant open-world filled with hidden secrets and mysterious Guardians that can help cure Elliot's curse of immortality. Throughout this adventure you'll collect countless abilities and spells, quest through 5 dungeons and defeat 16 unique bosses along your way to unlocking multiple endings.

    All in all, the post-patch version of Elliot Quest is a fun, but imperfect game. The challenge can be overwhelming, and occasionally the save points are spaced a bit too far apart. Still, the skill development, open exploration, and side scrolling bow-and-arrow combat is worth checking out. It’s not quite up to the level of other recent retro revivals like Shovel Knight or Blaster Master Zero, but if Zelda II is up your alley, Elliot Quest is worth a shot.

    Elliot Quest does not try to hide that it seeks its inspiration in 8-bit era games and it certainly succeeds at reenacting the spirit of those days, as well as coupling it to competent audiovisuals and a good lifespan. It doesn't do as good when it comes to its difficulty curve, which is way too steep for most players and it gameplay gets too complicated for its own good at some moments.

    On the one hand, there's a compound of flavoursome ingredients, while on the other one lays a final course that tastes just like a million others. It doesn't do anything bad, but just does not reach notable heights or excel anywhere. The meagre offering - in terms of new releases - on the Nintendo 3DS right now, may actually work in Ansimuz Games' favour, convincing those who don't own a Nintendo Switch yet, or simply want to send their handheld of choice some love, to give Elliot Quest a try.
