When Spacetime studios created Pocket Legends, their well received iPhone MMORPG, they anticipated that people would play in small chunks, 3-5 minutes at a time. They strung a bunch of small play sessions together around the small land of Forest Haven, in a "battle.net" approach, so that people could get maximum enjoyment.
It turns out, to Spacetime's surprise, that people wanted to do a lot more, so they created a new world. The new world, called Alterra, consists of a series of towns, that all lead to a new game type: quests. Quests are a way that the developers can drive your characters along on different story paths, opening the way for a ton of new game content.
“The Pocket Legends: Adventures update has finally fulfilled our goal – to combine the rich gameplay experience of PC and console MMOs with the quick pace of mobile games," says Gary Gattis, President, Spacetime Studios. "None of this would have been possible without the feedback from the fans, which helped us take our title to the next level and create a living, breathing world.”
In its current form, Forest Haven has 19 quests, Dark Forest has 12 quests, and Balefort Castle has 18 quests, but there are many more that will be added in future updates. If you haven't picked up Pocket Legends, pick it up today for free in the App Store; I think you'll like it.
