Punch Quest


Expert's review

A 2D clobbering sidescroller

  • Thrilling and challenging
  • Smells like tin spirit - references and humor
  • Amount of quests and stuff
  • Additional in-app purchases

"Chuck Norris would approve this"

Flat truth in the first instance: Punch Quest looks like an overdosed game made in the nineties, when early 16bit graphics melt our retinas and sampler music dig deep into your hypothalamus every day. Likewise, Punch Quest brings back that old tradition of being a game apparently simple and reaching insane quotes of complexity and mayhem once you get the hang of it.

To put it in other words, this game should be considered a 2D sidescroller in the endless runner category. However, you can actually stop anywhere and block incoming attacks and use the upwards attack (aka shoryuken) to jump, therefore having elements both from platform gaming and beat'em-ups. Lastly, there are laser breathing dinosaurs in a clear reference to Mario (really?) and rainbow farting wild goats in an insolent homage to, well, to God knows what.

Punchzerker and Smashkyrie, the two eligible characters are customizable insofar you have enough coins and value pixel art. More important are the myriad of power-ups and skills, for on these will depend to a great extent your survival and score. We don't like that there are additional in-app purchases. It's not that you need them, but it's unfair for a game lacking a trial version.

Meanwhile, run, jump, make combos, chase garden gnomes, buy hats and enjoy this life-ruiner, err, I meant time-waster.
