    I’m pleased to say that Letter Quest Remastered does a pretty fine job of carving out a place for itself in the lineup of Switch gamers looking for something more casual. If you like to get out your thesaurus and flex your vocabulary while having to contend with the obstacles your enemies love to throw in your path, it does a fine job. What helps distinguish it is the level of strategy you’ll be able to employ while doing so.

    Letter Quest Remastered not only manages to successfully combine the wild pairing of Scrabble and RPGs, but also manages to make it incredibly fun. You’ll find yourself doing little other than furious spelling and the purchasing of skills and upgrades throughout the entire 10+ campaign, yet these things remain enjoyable and keep you interested from start to finish. If your confidence in using the English language isn’t as strong as it could be you shouldn’t feel threatened by the idea of this game, it's worth noting that you can steadily work your way through levels at your own pace and by using the weapon upgrades provided – although we would suggest that people with a natural linguistic flair might get the most enjoyment out of it. Either way, a lot fun is waiting for you in this title and we’d urge you to give it a go.

    Letter Quest Remastered is a fun twist on the traditional word puzzle game by introducing RPG elements, although the game begins to run out of fresh ideas, the foundation of this game was such fun that it was still a blast to play through. The game needs a chance to flesh out its ideas more but in the mean time I suggest you get the dictionary out and play this game.

    As bizarre as the idea of Grim Reapers, turn-based battles and Scrabble-like wordplay all together sounds, Letter Quest Remastered really makes it work, and enjoyably so. The harsh difficulty hikes in later story missions can be jarring for the wallet-grinding they then necessitate, and there isn't a great deal of diversity in enemy design and environment, but once the addictive nature of word building gets its hooks in, prying them off isn't easy.

    Letter Quest Remastered è un gioco simpatico, con un'idea divertente alla base, ma che ha il grosso limite di essere solo dedicato a chiLetter Quest Remastered è un gioco simpatico, con un'idea divertente alla base, ma che ha il grosso limite di essere solo dedicato a chi conosce la lingua inglese. Il fatto di non essere localizzato per l'italiano sicuramente farà desistere molti potenziali acquirenti, anche in considerazione del livello difficoltà crescente del gioco, che prevede una discreta conoscenza della lingua inglese. La versione Switch è ben strutturata, in quanto si può usare il touch, che lo rende molto più veloce nella fruizione rispetto al pad.

    Letter Quest Remastered
    About as fun as a spelling test.
    Letter quest remastered is a puzzle game where you play as a little grim reaper dude out to grab some pizza
    and I love pizza as much as the next guy... but coming up with words for 8 hours to get some? No thanks
    there’s a bit of charm here in this RPG meets scrabble game...
    You’re given a bunch of random letters and you do some turn based combat with enemies using those letters...
    Your goal is to come up with the best word possible, and you know your boy superken from superkengaming has the vocabulary of a 3rd grader, so this wasn’t the best game for me to flex my spelling skills on..
    The bigger the word with the better more challenging to use letters the more damage you do to enemies, and enemies will attack back.. However not with letters... they just get free damage... and their can do things like mess with your letters, giving them poison effects or breaking them so that they give you no points for a certain amount of turns..
    Definitely stacking the deck against you...
    and as the game progresses more effects are put into play and enemies get spongier and spongier... this is how the game challenges you... with sponge…
    thankfully enemies drop gems when you beat them allowing you to upgrade your weapon, health, and armor... you can even buy spell books to give you an advantage such as the letter e giving you health every time you use it, and these bonuses are leveled up while using them…
    But its apparent with its boss battles and later stages that this game wants you to replay the same levels over and over... to grind for gems to upgrade your gear…
    As boss battles for example will have a ridiculous rule attached to them like the enemy only takes damages from words that start with vowels…
    again I only know like 3 words that start with a vowel.. rough time for me…
    so I threw my gems at the shop for some health potions to give myself a better chance because I wasn’t about to go back and replay levels to grind for gems… levels are samey enough as it is
    Why grinding is ultimately a problem is that this game gets old insanely fast..
    The different tiles and effects don’t keep it interesting... the battles don’t get more interesting...
    there are 40 levels total here, and all of them are just defeat enemy after enemy, occasionally get a shop to refill your health a little or do a wheel of fortune style game for a perk before the next battle..
    And if you die you have to restart the level all over again...
    it’s a spelling test that never ends
    And if you want that... there literally is an endless mode…
    Letter Quest starts cute, but gets really challenging and really tiring fast
    it’s a play a level once every few years kind of game more than it is beat in sitting kind of game
    it’s that repetitive
    I give Letter Quest Remastered
    a 5/10
