Iron Dragon II - Revenge suffers from poor controls and mind-boggling repetition. Best to let the bad guys run amok.

By Rob Rich on May 29th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SWIPE-EM-UP

Rocketcat Games Reveals Their Upcoming Endless Brawler, Punch Quest

Posted by Carter Dotson on June 25th, 2012

Rocketcat Games and Madgarden has released the first trailer for its upcoming game, Punch Quest. For those who haven't followed the game's development on Rocketcat Games’ Twitter and Facebook pages, Punch Quest is a hybrid of a Final Fight or Double Dragon beat ’em up with an endless runner game. It will also have plenty of action-packed craziness, shown off in the first preview trailer for the game. It’s hard not to be interested in a game that includes punching giant dinosaur eggs, which then pop out the protagonist riding a dinosaur that shoots lasers. Oh, and Gnomey from previous Rocketcat games is also playable.

And yes, the game is both a quest about punching, and punching stuff while on a quest. There will be lots and lots of punching. The game is set to hit this fall, and those who can’t get enough of the launch trailer can also check out various other snippets of early gameplay on this YouTube playlist. It will be free to play with IAP for coins. This isn’t the only thing to look forward to from Rocketcat Games, as they are also working on a free-to-play roguelike Mage Gauntlet spinoff.
