2. Crusaders Quest

Genre: Fantasy, Side Scroller, Puzzle-Action, Multiplayer

You are a mercenary looking for work in a quiet town, but deep within the forest, a mysterious witch has imprisoned goddesses and tainted the land! You form a group with others, and go on a crusade to save the goddesses and get rid of the evil witches!

Crusaders quest itself is relaxing and simple. Tap blocks to use your characters’ skills as they progress through the dungeon, chain blocks to deal more damage.

The designers and artist really complemented the 16bit art style, creating a game that is soothing, appealing and cute! The music really does make one reminisce about the past as the game uses 16 bit style music when doing dungeons.

This game is an excellent choice for the casual gamer.
