Review: Nyx Quest HD
An adventurous character quest, different and challenging!
View on the App Store: NyxQuest HD - Chillingo Ltd
Features of Nyx Quest HD:
You must help 'Nyx' find her friend Icarus by flying her through an ancient Greek setting moving obstacles out of her way, avoiding dangerous creatures and dodging falling columns. You are taken on a journey through Greek mythology where you can invoke the power of the 'Gods' to assist you on your Quest!
The boys love that Nyx can fly which adds a surreal twist to the game. There are also some very creative graphics within this app. The game has 12 levels which brings you to a definite ending. The children were really proud of themselves when they managed to win the last level and complete game.
There are 'checkpoints' in this game which allow you to begin again from the last checkpoint so you do not have to begin at the level again, this feature means the children enjoy it more.
Great game thoroughly enjoyed by the boys, who played it all the way through until they won the game! This is a fast moving action game which we do find quite intense for younger children, so we limit this game play time to 15 minutes.
10 out of 10!
This game gets a little spooky. The creatures are actually quite frightening, especially as you are an angel-being with delicate wings...
Definitely not for little children.
