Empires & Puzzles: RPG Quest for PC – Windows/MAC OS
Table of Contents
I am very happy that today I have prepared for you Empires & Puzzles: RPG Quest published by Small Giant Games. When the great puzzles are mixed with RPG elements in adventure style you receive this type of game. Do you remember when you could buy mobile games? You know, that thing we used to do where we paid once and just played the thing? Maybe you didn’t get another splash screen every ten minutes reminding you that you can buy more special coins that make the game easier for half a second. Perhaps the developers were happy to just make a product and sell it, rather than whale fishing? Pepperidge Farm remembers, and I remember too. Sadly, those days are long gone, so I’ve had to put on my big girl pants and suck it up to review Empires and Puzzles. Like so many others before it, Empires and Puzzles is a match-three puzzle game, however, it’s also got a lot of elements of the Collectible Card Game genre as well, with you collecting heroes of a different rarity to battle more monsters or other players. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also got a base building and expansion section as well. I’m pretty sure Small Giant just Googled “what type of mobile games make money?” and combined the top three. They also added in Tai-Chi pandas to be certain about it.
Empires & Puzzles: RPG Quest Gameplay and Review
Now let`s go through the gameplay of this puzzle, RPG thing. With the mixture of genres, the game is actually pretty complex. You’ll spend a lot of your time managing resources to best upgrade your base with sources of food for your troops and iron to craft new buildings and battle items. You’ll also spend time collecting cards to get the best heroes. Your heroes can consume the cards of your crappier heroes to level up (you get XP, but your heroes don’t) and the stronger a hero is, the stronger attacks from their particular color are. On top of this, each hero has a special skill, which could be a buff, a strong attack, or a healing function. You earn mana to cast these by matching gems and the matches will send a swathe of troops heading towards the monsters directly in front of them. You can also upgrade these troops with your cards to get even more power.
Really fun to play
Honestly, I wish for more moving from the animations and characters itself.
