One of the best mobile games

It’s a bold statement, yes it is. I fully believe that it is. I’ve owned this game for many years, and while it’s not
updated (besides to update functionality), I still enjoy coming back to it now and then. It’s a challenging game but one I’m
sure would blow up if it had a bit of attention.

Surprisingly Very Fun!

I was skeptical at first but decided to give it a try. Glad I did! One of my favorite purchases now!

So good

People see the graphics and move on but this game is frickin awesome. If you like rogue-like deck builders, this game deserves a
lot of love!

Playing for years and I cannot stop

I laugh every time I see the graphics, but I have been playing this game for years with no updates and no problems. It is a
really nicely balanced game at times with some extreme challenges. I simply create a new profile and start from scratch whenever
I get bored and want a real challenge again.

'2 years for every class to beat lord'

'I played this game for about 2 years. Some people would argue the game is unbalanced. It is true. Some classes are naturally
weaker than others in terms of probability of beating the final boss. However, it doesn’t mean they are weak when you get all
key cards for them. Warrior and paladin are ha

'Don’t judge a game by it’s cover!'

'This game has amazing depth to it, especially after unlocking the more special rule-changing classes, braving the hardest
difficulty to take on a very ultimate endgame boss. \n\nIt may seem difficult at first, randomly unfair and you will get stuck in
unwinnable situations. But endure, spend your a

'Fun game, great value'

'This game is a robust dungeon crawler with combat resolved via decks that are customized from a starting class over the course of
a 30 minute adventure. \n\nThe plot is nonexistent, but the game systems are fun and it has tons of replay value-there’s much
variety between classes and within each c

'Not much to look at, but this is a deep, challenging roguelike deck builder. Dropped one-star only because difficulty is
primarily due to rng which results in impossible to win games that no matter how carefully and thoughtfully you play, you will

'Love this game'

'I’ve been playing it a few years and keep coming back to it. Start over unlock each class and card again. So simple and so
perfectly designed. It did take me a TON of try’s to beat lvl 1 the first time but great challenge. What a gift to see the dev

'Brilliant but brutal'

'This game is so clever that people have made a living selling Dream Quest knock-offs. Not sure why Peter has not made a sequel.
Maybe he is too busy rolling around in his well deserved money. I have died more times playing this game than any other yet I
can’t stop playing. Buy this game if yo

'Love this game'

'You can see when playing the Hearthstone Dungeon run where a lot of the creative talent is coming from. Very simple and also
very complex game design. I got this game as soon as I saw his name and have only regretted the life I have sacrificed to play
this instead.'

'The best.'

'Best roguelike AND best card game I\'ve played. Thoroughly solid mechanics. Just enough random chance that you do better in some
runs than others, but that I\'ve never screamed at it in dejected frustration. If I\'m rolled a bad game, nonetheless it seems
\"fair\" somehow. And for a game with so mu

'The best roguelike on the App Store!'

'Slay the Spire was TOTALLY informed by Dream Quest. Like another reviewer said, I too have passed by this game dozens of times
while searching for a new rpg/roguelike fix. I finally took a chance after playing dozens of others and bought it. Holy crap, this
is hands down the best rpg/card/roguelike

'Best iOS Game Ever Made'

'This is, bar none, the greatest iOS game of all time. I’ve dumped hundreds of hours into it since 2014 and I still regularly
reset the achievements and do it all from scratch again.\n\nThere have been many imitators but there is only one Dream Quest. Best

'This is my top played game, for years now.'

'Read the other reviews for a sense of the awesomeness that is this game. No less than the creator of Magic: The Gathering,
Richard Garfield, has blessed this game with his seal of approval. \n\nAnd even the graphics have a heartwarming story - the
designer wanted to involve his young daughter in

'Best iOS game'

'I’ve played through this game hundreds of times. Maybe even nearing a thousand. The only negative thing about this game is that
it’s so unique, I can’t find anything else to fill the hole this game has left. The bad graphics add to the charm and
uniqueness of this game. I rarely leave reviews

'What a great game'

'This game is amazing. It’s got practically everything you can ask for. Long Term Progression, Card Collection, Rogue-like,
Achievements, Exploration, Classes, and easy to understand game mechanics. The game itself doesn’t have beautiful card art but
honestly it makes me enjoy the game a little

'How can I convince you to buy this?'

'I passed by this game dozens of times in the App Store, always convinced that the lousy art told the whole story. How good could
it be if it was just stick figures? ALL OF THE GOOD! How can this be the only game this guy has made? I’ve never seen a

'It\'s been years now, and I am still playing this game. The graphics are hilarious, the gameplay is incredibly deep and
merciless, but there are so many achievements to unlock and each one improves the game experience just a little bit more. If you

'Came across this while reading the updates to Ascension. Saw the reviews so figured it was worth a shot. Like other say, don\'t
let the graphics fool you. It\'s a real deep game in the genre of Slay the Spire though this game is older than StS. My only
concern is that it hasn\'t been updated in awh

The only bad thing I can say about this game is that it will eat up your time, so play wisely!'

incredible but begs to be played intelligently. I’ve grown quite fond of the simplistic art and honestly enjoy it just as much
as some other games on the market with very deta

'Absurdly compelling'

'There are a few other games out there that aim for this same formula (though honestly, not _that_ many, I wish there were more),
but Dream Quest is still the king of it\'s unique little genre. If you like a game that rewards experimentation and strategy, and
with loads to discover, this is for you.

'Great game'

value is incredible. My one wish would be a mode after unlocking everything that you could just fight dreamer with a deck you
choose to build.'

No XS Max support

This game deserves 5-stars, no brainer. But this game literally is played on the half of the screen on XS Max. Not even Plus size,
literally half of the screen. Not sure what the deal is but needs an update. Crazy thing is, it’s optimized for the big iPad
Pro. As soon as it’s updated, I’ll give it 5

Fun, but not fair.

I’d love to rate it higher, but it’s not a fair game. Some situations there are no solutions, and there always should be.
Otherwise it’s a complex and enjoyable game to play.

Addicting to play

When you first download the game, you will likely be a little turned off by the graphics. However, if you play through a few
times, you will overlook the graphics and really enjoy the game play. I love deck builders and play board games (Clank!, etc.)
frequently. It’s my favorite type of game. Howev
