Introduction to Nimble Quest

Nimble Quest is a game for iOS and Android created by NimbleBit (makers of Pocket Frogs, Pocket Planes, Tiny Tower, and many others). Nimble Quest is similar to the game snake, but the snake in Nimble Quest is made up of a line of RPG-style heroes, such as warriors, mages, archers, and so on. Monsters move around the playing field, and if your heroes are close enough, they will attack the monsters. After you defeat a specific number of monsters, you advance to the next level.
