Adapted to a mobile format, but keeps spirit of predecessor

Today’s gaming market is all about micro transactions and short play sessions. The Team behind Puzzle Quest understands this and has created this game with the current market in mind. It has been moving in this direction ever since marvel puzzle quest. I do wish this was a true successor to puzzle quest: challenge of the Warlords and Puzzle Quest 2, though it seems that it’s more like marvel puzzle quest but with the theme of the original. That being said a lot of the gameplay elements that made the original so great are still here. It’s just presented in a short play session/micro transaction type of way. There’s a lot to like here. However, there are obviously many ways to improve it as well

It’s just not the same.

I rarely ever write reviews, but for this terrible followup to one of my most beloved puzzle games, I felt compelled to. PQ started out with a lovely rpg feel - that is, it felt like a proper game (and it was, for that matter). This feels more like a feckless cash grab with pretty, if generic, graphics intended to milk the last drop of what goodwill the original PQ earned. PQ2 failed to meet the original mark as well, but it too was a proper game, if notably lesser. This third entry lacks any semblance of the original soul of the series. If you have any measure of love for the original, make a hard pass on this one. There’s no character customization, it varies much too wildly from the original formula, and strives with sickening desperation to sell $8 limited time item packs using gross levels of fomo, without making even the basest of attempts to imply these goods are able to be freely earned at great effort, primarily via sinking time into the game. It’s honestly so far from what I would consider acceptable that I struggle to come up with constructive criticism. If anything, I implore the devs to take a long, hard look at the original and rethink this whole line of development. You can make a ton of money and still make an amazing game, devs - please don’t forget that.

Game failed after three days and expensive to play

After playing the game for three days, it fails. It will stuck on ‘Loading assets’ and won’t move any forward when I try to battle in story, skirmish or dungeon mode.

This game limits you with three chest slots. I have to earn different rarity keys to open each rarity chest or you use minions to open them but this can take a long time depending on the chest’s rarity. When all of your three chest slots are full, sorry, you can only salvage your chest for approximately 5% of its real value if you don’t have any more key. Now after the minion opens the chest, you will reap the reward. However, minion will need to rest because opening a chest is really hard work. I had a minion the need to rest for 36 hours after opening a chest! You want more keys? Pay premium. You want the minion to open the chest right away? Pay premium. You want your minion to recover immediately after opening a chest? Pay premium. The monthly subscription is $10 while most other games charge $5! I won’t mind pay $5 a month but not $10, not worth that much.
