Beast Quest is an adaptation of a series of youth fantasy novels under the same title. The mobile version is available in a free-to-play model with microtransactions. As for other platforms, it requires a one-time purchase. The game was developed by Miniclip.
The action takes place in the magical fantasy land known as Avantia. The campaign focuses on an evil sorcerer who, with the help of magic, was able to mind-control beasts inhabiting these lands, causing terrible aggression in them. We play the role of a hero who must protect the world from this threat, find a way to heal the beasts and defeat the sorcerer.
The events are observed from the third-person perspective. While playing, we mainly explore the world and fight. The battles are played in real-time and are characterized by the emphasis on the dexterity of the player rather than on the skills of their hero. The game allows us to fight with powerful bosses as well as larger groups of weaker enemies. During the battles, we have limited freedom of movement and instead, we have to focus on selecting the right moment to activate attacks, parring or defending ourselves with a shield. It is also important to combine techniques into longer combinations which increase the amount of damage inflicted.
During the exploration of the world, the player doesn't just fight. Locations hide many secrets and valuable items meaning that a thorough search of each location is rewarded. In addition, the authors have implemented RPG elements such as a system of improving equipment and armament. Also, the hero collects experience points and advances to the next levels.
