User Rating:

Did you enjoy playing Snake? Centipede? Well, then you’ll definitely enjoy playing Nimble Quest from Nimblebit. In Nimble Quest, you are the leader of a conga line of fellow heroes in which you can add to your line after defeating them. You’ll fight against bats, spiders, zombies, knights, pirates, wizards, skeletons, and more.

The Good

There’s a lot of fun to be had with Nimble Quest.  I love that it takes the basic gameplay of Snake and add unique elements to it to make it more interesting. Nimblebit has no shame that the gameplay is similar to Nokia’s snake, as they show you a brief tutorial when you open the game for the first time that says, “Remember this?”, with a picture of Nokia’s snake. The soundtrack for the game is excellent, as it sports a retro, 8-bit-Zelda style sound design. Gameplay is simple and addictive, and the well-made 8-bit graphics make it all that much more enjoyable. The game is basically the snake concept meets an RPG.

The Bad

It’s hard to find much wrong with Nimble Quest, but there are a couple of minor flaws. For one, leveling is extremely slow unless you want to spend your real-world money to upgrade. This doesn’t really effect the gameplay, but it would be nice to level faster. The second flaw can be avoided by choice, but it’s hard to play with the speed perk activated. I’m not sure why anyone would use the speed perk anyway, but I had to try it.

The Ugly Truth

Nimble Quest is a truly enjoyable mobile game that mixes classic snake gameplay with classic NES RPG style graphics and sound. It is easy to pick-up and play, and you’ll definitely find yourself spending hours of your time with your head in your phone or tablet. It’s also noteworthy that the game is free for Android users, but 99 cents in the Apple App Store for iPad/iPhone users.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes.

Learning Curve:Low.

Who Is It For:Former NES RPG gamers that had old-school Nokia phones.

What I Like:Cool graphics, retro feel.

What I Don't Like:Slow leveling.

Final Statement:Nimble Quest will provide you with hours of amusement, and it'll have your friends asking, “What are you playing?”
