Form a line of heroes and steer through endless levels fighting enemies. Just like in Snake, you can’t stop your heroes from moving forward and you have to avoid running into enemies and walls. Collect gems and power ups, avoid damage and obstacles, buy upgrades, and clear levels to unlock more heroes.
Simple and cute, Nimble Quest is a clever re-imagining of Snake. Levels start out easy and gradually get more difficult. On the downside, it can feel grindy and repetitive.
In addition to gems, there is a premium token currency. Before I figured out how levels worked and that tokens are rare, I stupidly wasted all of my tokens retrying levels (which the game prompts you to do). If you decide to play the game, don’t do that. 😛
If you’re looking for a game you can pick up and play for a few minutes at a time, this would be a good pick. I played the PC version, but I think Nimble Quest would work well on mobile devices (it was designed for them). Although the game is free-to-play on mobile, you have to pay to unlock red gems (worth 10x as much as normal green gems).
