RocketCat Games and Madgarden's Punch Quest is quite popular over on the iOS side of the fence, and today an official Android version was released on the Play Store, published by Noodlecake Studios. And yes, there are a lot of silly names in that sentence (sometimes I think there's an ongoing secret contest for 'most ridiculous studio name' among indie game developers). The game itself appears identical to the iOS version, and that's probably for the best, because Punch Quest has racked up a 5 star average rating on the App Store with over 13,000 reviews. Not an easy feat, by any means.

So, what is Punch Quest? It's a sidescroller in which you punch things. More specifically, it's a retro arcade-style fighter in which you punch crap into oblivion. I don't know about you, but my wallet's already itching based on these screenshots.

You can customize your character with various special moves and abilities, and maximize your pummeling potential with devastating combos and 'Supermoves.' For example:

Punch an egg that explodes, while you explode, and inside the egg is a gnome, then YOU ARE THE GNOME, and the gnome explodes after a bee sting.

The game itself isn't just a simple sidescroller, either - there's a reason Punch Quest is so popular. You can make various path choices during the game, and spawn rare encounters that can yield especially exciting lewt. And by lewt, I mean new and exciting ways to punch things. Head to the Play Store link below and make the best use of a dollar you will all week.

    Looks like a lot of fun. Does it have actual levels, so when you complete one you start at the next one?

    I'm getting tired of the endless runner games where you have to start at the beginning every time. I made an exception for Iron Man 3 and Temple Run: Oz because of the themes but even then, I like games where I have something to show for my progress.

    And this is free on iOS. Or it was free sometime back if not now.

    Hmm... when I had an iPhone I remember this going free-to-play due to iAP sales not being so good and people that of us that bought it before the change was given free in-app items. I'm guessing they're giving that 2nd run with Android users in hopes of a change. The game is really fun and the developers are cool so I have no problem buying it again.

      Does it have actual levels, so when you complete one and then die, you start at the beginning of the level and not the entire game? Just want to make sure its not an endless runner game.

        It is endless

          Thanks for the answer. I might give it a try anyway though, it still looks fun.

  • ChainsawCharlie
