Lots of levels, exciting plot, addictive game play, simple controls
Every now and then, a developer comes along and develops an RPG game that is absolutely jam packed with everything an RPG fan could hope for. In Crusaders Quest for Android, you'll be spoiled - there is a great party system, complex skill and ability leveling, and a very in-depth story.
Unlike most mobile games, the developers of this app have really put a lot of emphasis into the story. If you've come from playing classic JRPGs of yesteryear, you will feel right at home here. The story is engaging, and everything in the game has been made to fit in perfectly, leaving little room for elements to break you out of the immersion.
You will go through different stages in this game as the story unfolds. Each stage has multiple waves of enemies that you must defeat by using your character's abilities, available from the ability bar. As you progress through the game, you'll meet new party members and unlock more skills to help you fight off the waves of enemies. Once you have cleared out each wave from a level, you will be taken into a boss fight.
For the most part, the combat in this game is without much challenge, so if you're looking for tough boss fights, this might not be your cup of tea. If you're more interested in the RPG elements and the engaging story however, then this game will do more than enough to impress you.
Crusaders Quest does feature a lot of items and equipment that can be purchased in-game, and the developers have monetized the item store so you can use in-app purchases to get gear quickly. If you feel like splashing $10 on a legendary weapon, you're more than likely to be able to get through the combat scenarios without much opposition from the enemies.
