To all my regular readers, this is not the latest Puzzle and Dragons update and I still plan on producing PAD related content. Creature Quest is another game I have begun to play which I greatly enjoy. I have seduced quite a few of my friends into playing and I realized I tend to repeat the same beginning advice over and over again. As such, why not formally write about it as that was partially one of the reasons to start creating content for Puzzle and Dragons.
If you are reading this, I do encourage you to at least try Creature Quest out as it is quite fun and addicting as it combines many aspects that I look for in a video game.
Creature Quest is a relatively new mobile game that combines questing, collecting, and weekly PvP/PvE tournaments into one great adventure. Some of the key elements I look for in a game are continuous replay value as well as rewarding gameplay.
Creature Quest utilizes a Gatcha-collection system in that you can gamble Diamonds (premium currency) for creatures of varying value. In addition, you can also acquire rare and powerful creatures from the 3 distinct gameplay modes that are essential for success. While Creature Quest utilizes a Freemium structure (free to play, but option of In-App Purchases/IAP), it is not a Pay-to-Win game as everything is farmable to a certain extent. Furthermore, the PvP aspect relies on using creatures of varying sizes for success and you are unable to populate it with only Legendary cards.
The combat system is an elaborate rock paper scissors game in that each element is strong against one type while weak against another (often referred to the Colour Counter Flowchart). This prevents “optimal” teams as you will have to be flexible when team building to counter the dungeon at hand. This also means you should try to resist becoming overly attached to a single creature as they will have to be rotated in and out as required as you can only use 5 at a time.
I enjoy the fact that playing the game is tremendously rewarding as each gameplay mode offers incredible rewards and keeps me motivated to continuously play. The randomness through Questing or summoning new Creatures is exciting and having Guilds adds an extra layer of community within Creature Quest. In addition, the in game text/descriptions are quite punny and the animated characters, special effect noises, and soothing music all contribute to the overall positive experience.
This article will help guide newer player through all the different components of the game along with tips and tricks to fully optimize your game play.
