Sometimes, when you are sent on a quest, the mission itself isn’t important. They say the quest itself is the reward. In Guerilla Tea’s puzzle game, The Quest, you don’t even have to move more than a few spaces. The world moves around you.
Imagine that you lived on a 4×4 Rubics Cube. Now imagine that the god of this cube need you to find his favorite mug…over and over again. It just wouldn’t make sense to go traipsing all over the cube when you could simply rotate the mug right to you. This may seem like a simple task, but in The Quest, there are mountains and rivers that much be crossed to reach your goal.
Luckily, there are implements that allow you to pass from over terrain to another. The boat lets you pass from river to land, to sled lets you pass from land to mountain, and finally the ballon lets you pass from mountains to rivers. You must move these tiles into position such that you can access the tile with the mug. The difficulty of this starts off fairly easy. Most puzzles could be completed with one or two slides. Later on though, there comes puzzles that require you to move to various points after rotating tiles, only to rotate them into another position to continue.
There are fifty levels total and a promise for more to come. Each level rates you on time and number of moves. Most puzzles can be solved eventually, but it is solving them as efficiently as possible that becomes you goal. Three dimensional puzzles can really rack your brain as you try and visualize all sides of the puzzle. If you like a challenging puzzle game and you don’t care for much of a theme, then The Quest will keep you occupied for hours.
