Jan 21, 2015A truly old style dungeon crawler that has the merit of slavishly reproduce the mechanics of now unobtainable board game, managing to be fulfilling despite an inescapable simplicity. The main flaw resides in the direct porting from iOS: for the PC version was reasonable to expect some optimization.
CD-ActionMar 17, 2015Despite its obvious low budget I’ve already devoted 60 hours to Warhammer Quest – first on iOS, and now on PC. The atmosphere of the Old World recreated by Rodeo Games does not cease to delight me. [03/2014, p.80]
Jan 15, 2015Warhammer Quest is an old school boardgame-tablet-port RPG that fails to enhance itself for a platform that requires a bit more both in terms of gameplay and aesthetics. If a light RPG adventure is what you are after then Warhammer Quest is a sure bet, but if you're looking for something on par with what the PC market offers nowadays then definitely look elsewhere.

Please ignore the 'MicroTransaction' whiners/trolls. You never need to buy gold and the 'Deluxe' version of the game for less than £20 includes all the current content. Way cheaper than buying it all on iOS too.
I'm quite a way into the game and have no issues with it, or with making enough gold to level the characters up.

Jan 13, 2015This is a great and accurate interpretation of the classic Games Workshop dungeon crawler, faithful down to the sometimes annoying randomThis is a great and accurate interpretation of the classic Games Workshop dungeon crawler, faithful down to the sometimes annoying random events (in the original game as "roll a 1 phase"). I find the art quality excellent (doesn't feel as sharp as the iOS though on my large screen) and I'm happy to finally be able to play this game on my PC.
I just don't get all this whining about micro-transactions, don't you want the game to expand and update? No one is forcing anyone to buy anything (what's with the mentality today "I want it all, and I want it all for free!"), you can just grab the basic game and stay with that (you will already have more than the basic iOS version). The company put effort into developing and adding new material in the form of areas, heroes etc and this cost money, do you want them to do that for free out of the kindness of their hearts because you can't be bother to spend a little on something you supposedly like?
Another view is this, in the original game you also only got what is in the basic game here. All the extra heroes, loot cards, expansions with new maps and fancy special gear was extra purchases (expensive) so the game holds true to that.
My only concern with micro-transactions is that they sell gold because you can lose gold in random events and it's BAD to have game mechanics that lose you cash money.
Oh and I saw someone complaining about random events in the dungeons... It's PART OF THE GAME, it always was, it's keyed to the wizards roll for magic points, whenever he rolled a 1 (0 in the digital game) an event occurs, in dungeons that's usually an ambush. In other words, it's always been like that and is how it's supposed to be.
As suggested earlier I would really like to see the dice rolls and it would be nice if they had ironed out a few more bugs before release, but that seems to be the norm of games these days.
To sum it up, I really like and enjoy this game and think it's worth the money I've paid for it several times over (bought it for my brother as well). I give it 8 for what it is and is supposed to be, I would give it higher if we had dice rolls and no game stopping bugs (I have encountered one), I'd bump it to 10 if we could also get co-op at some point.… Expand

Jan 7, 2015PLEASE NOTE: most of the reviews for the original iOS version are from many years ago, before microtransactions were implemented.
There isPLEASE NOTE: most of the reviews for the original iOS version are from many years ago, before microtransactions were implemented.
There is a good game here, which recreates an old board game. Worth an 8 or 9 (a 10 if you could actually see the dice rolls) and the production values are high
Though the game gets a 1, why? The microtransactions. This is a "dungeon crawl" game were you hunt for gold and loot. Most of the characters are paid DLC. Most of the loot you get is for those DLC characters. They are very expensive to buy INDIVIDUALLY. The gold rewards are dropped at a dismal rate. So there is a "gold store" where you buy gold with real money to speed things up. Yes, almost like a facebook game.
There are also game breaking weapons you can buy, so you never have any challenge with the game.
The whole point of the game is to dungeon crawl, survive the challange and find loot and gold (that is the board game in its entirety) Yet this video game version allows you to buy stuff from the start so you can skip all that, leaving you with a hollow game because there is nothing else to do. As stated, the gold drops for those who dont spend real money to progress has been designed so its a very slow progress. Gold is used for everything, from buying items to levelling your characters.
iOS users also get shafted, as they need to spend about $50 to unlock everything compared to the PC users who get a "deluxe" edition which has everything included for about $30, although still with the gold store microtransactions. There is also a basic version on PC, where you need to buy everything individually like the iOS. $30 itself is on the high-end for such a title ($50 is just ridiculous)
It is a horrible system, one which abuses it's customers and anyone defending it is guilty of ruining gaming.
The developers have also stated some of the sleaziest PR talk you can imagine such as:
"Some customers prepurchased the game expecting to buy in-game gold"
"We can't remove the gold store, as it would break the game"
They are not catering to fans of the board game, they are not catering to gamers, they are catering to that "facebook game" personality type. Shame on this developer.… Expand
