JackQuest: Tale of the Sword is a metroidvania production developed by the independent NX Games studio. The game was released by Blowfish Studios, whose portfolio includes titles such as Gunscape and Siegecraft Commander.


JackQuest: Tale of the Sword takes us on a journey to a fantasy land. While playing, we step into the shoes of the titular character, whose beloved Nara was kidnapped by a powerful orc - Korg. Without thinking too long, Jack chases after the monster and ends up in his underground hideout. There he finds a sword that becomes his faithful ally as he crosses a dangerous, dark cave.


In JackQuest: Tale of the Sword the action is shown from the side. The gameplay revolves around traversing the interconnected locations that create a kind of labyrinth; we also have to avoid numerous traps and various dangers, solve environmental riddles and fight against the enemies we encounter, among which we will find many powerful bosses. As Jack progresses, not only does he gain new weapons (such as a bow) and power-ups, but he also acquires a variety of skills, allowing him to confront ever stronger enemies and reach previously unavailable locations. All of the above is complemented by countless secrets and optional challenges.
