There’s no shortage of role-playing games that focus on deep story with constant plot twists and rich character development. The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot isn't one of these games. As the title suggests, this adventure is all about one thing: loot. The game's a cyclical chase for bigger and better gear, with players making runs through short dungeons (or in this case, flying castles), hacking, slashing, and magicking through swarms of creatures ranging from angry chickens to fiery demons and everything in-between. At the end of each stage, you sort through your hard-earned treasures, upgrade your gear, and head out to do it all over again. Although that might seem to get a bit old after a while, the game manages to hit the right balance to keep feeling fresh.
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, in a nutshell, just feels fun to play. The simple controls are fluid and surprisingly effective. Moving, dodging, and attacking take nothing more than a flick of your thumb. Each stage is just long enough to provide good challenge and exploration, but just short enough to keep the pace of the action constant. If there’s one problem the game really suffers from, it’s the usual pitfalls of the free-to-play paywalls. To get the most out of the game, you really need to pick up things like the “Epic Pass,” which rewards players with new missions to accomplish and extra rewards for doing so. There are also paid passes for everything from extra gold to much needed energy, which can start to add up pretty quick, especially for a “free” game. Admittedly, you can still make a good bit of progress without ever spending money in the shop, but it can sometimes feel like you’re missing out.
