Beast Quest Family Test
If you’ve not heard of the Beast Quest series you probably don’t have young boys in the family. The series has attracted sales of around 14 million books.
A new iOS and Android game will extend the Beast Quest world of Avantia to the mobile platform offering an action adventure experience. Miniclip are developing it and with their 70 million users in the younger market they look set to do well. Beast Quest should do well for them — provided the game is as good as they say.
In the game you take on the role of Tom, who partners with Elenna to battle the different monsters and enemies of the land of Avantia. The story in the game is not only linear story missions, but an open world to explore and light role-play character progression. Tom and Elenna need to work in tandem to progress with the player =controlling Tom throughout.
Trying out the game at home, my test family quickly took to the exploration, combat and role play elements. Although on a tablet device this would be as at home on consoles. Games like The Legend of Zelda and Infinity Blade spring to mind.
We put the game to the test in the hands of a young family. Have a look at the video to see how they got on as this father and son took their first steps into the world of Beast Quest and Avantia.
