DLC Quest Review

This is a very simplistic game that is more a joke than a game. quick run down of what it is,
-Retro style GFX
-Retro style Sound FX
-Side Scroller style gameplay.
-Story is just a very simple princess needs rescued story for the sake of having a reason for the game.
-This games sole purpose is making fun of DLC (Downloadable Content).

Now the fun part of the game.
It is a coin collecting game that as you get the coins you can purchase DLC to bring in new features. For example, when you start the game there are no sounds and you can only jump and move right. After collecting enough coins you can then talk with an NPC to "buy" the Control Pack which gives you full control over your character. You can also purchase the Sound Pack and Double Jump Pack. of course there are more than just those but I list those to give an example of how this game is trying to make fun of DLC based games.

It plays for about 30 - 40 minutes and is a fun little gem worth playing through at least once and the Dev has released a few other good games so to show your support. One of his other games is Lair of the Evil Doer which is going to be my next review, but it is also a very good game. The game studio is Going Loud Studios and the game is $1.99. http://goingloudstudios.com/ if you want to find out more about the studio and their games
