Step up your critter-capturing game in Creature Quest’s new update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 12th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Veteran Creature Quest players may need to re-think their tactics, as new abilities, prizes and creatures arrive in update 1.2. Combined with a completely restructured Battle Tower mode, VC Mobile has been hard at work to offer players plenty more to see and do.

Starting off in a big way, fans will immediately notice the substantial changes made to the game’s Battle Tower, now completely revitalised for a revamped PVE strategic experience. For the first time, global and guild leaderboards have also been added, with even greater weekly prizes awaiting adventurers who battle their way to the top.

Update 1.2 is also bringing with it a suite of entirely new beasts to tame and critters to collect, meaning current players’ creature squads might need a worthy re-shuffle. New monsters include the mystical Jade Dragon and the new legendary class monster Fallen Angel. Both look set to make their presence known, giving you a better chance at dominating the wholly new Battle Tower.

Keeping the enhancements coming, the folks at VC Mobile have also taken fan feedback on-board, improving Creature Quest’s Dungeon Challenge mode with a new Bronze, Silver, and Gold tier system. The higher the tier, the better the reward, so it pays to climb to the top in the attempt to remain at Gold level.

There’s plenty more to see, do, and accomplish in Creature Quest’s latest update, so feel free to try out all of Creature Quest’s new and old on both iOS and Android now.
