Dark Quest Review | Hardcore Droid

In our modern, workaday world, where big budget RPGs like Skyrim and Diablo III dominate the gaming landscape, it’s easy to forget that the forebears of the RPG genre came not from computers or consoles, but tabletop gaming. Miniatures, dice-throwing, and hours upon hours of pretending to be a dwarf might seem a quaint anachronism to today’s gamer, but back then some dice and a healthy imagination was all anyone had. A throwback to these humblest of beginnings, Dark Quest brings the spirit of classic dungeon crawling boardgames like TSR’s Dungeon! and Milton Bradley’s HeroQuest to a mobile platform. Indeed, Dark Quest is almost blatantly derivative of the latter for its game mechanics and aesthetic, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. (Android, Dark Quest, iPhone, Mobile) 3.5/5

Thought that image looked familiar, it's a complete rip off of the board game Hero Quest!
