Fans of classic role-playing games have found that aside from so-called ‘indie’ games from developers such as Spiderweb and and , their best bets for an ‘old school’ fix is finding something cool on either the Nintendo or the iTunes App Store. Another fine game in the style of the classic Ultima games has arrived, RPG Quest: Minimae!
According to the developer:
Apple iPhone and iPod Touch owners, are you ready for a new adventure? P1XL Games invites you to explore a brand-new fantasy world, defending all that is good and right from the marauding hordes in RPG Quest – Minimæ, a neo-retro role playing game available now on the iTunes Store.
Designed in affectionate tribute to the 8-bit giants that defined the genre, RPG Quest – Minimæ’s goal is straightforward yet epic. Your bold adventurer is tasked by the King to retrieve the eight Rings of Power. Only by gathering these artifacts can you vanquish the ancient evil which has awakened to threaten the simple folk and their peaceful lands.
Your quest will take you through the fields and forests, through towns such as Keigar and Skara Brae, and into long-forgotten hiding places. Deadly foes both natural and monstrous threaten you at every turn. Friendly merchants can help you upgrade your equipment, while townsfolk may provide vital clues to aid you in your hunt for the Rings, or offer you unique side-quest and mini-game opportunities. Uncover dozens of secret treasures.
RPG Quest – Minimæ features original, classically-inspired graphics and an extensive new chiptune soundtrack. Your adventurer is protected by auto-save every time you leave town, and preserved when the game is quit or interrupted so you can pick up play exactly where you left off. An intuitive swipe-and-tap interface, player-friendly rules, and in-game help ensure that you can start enjoying your quest immediately.
