The April 2017 RPG Reload Play-Along: QuestLord

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload Play-Along. Each month, we'll be playing an iOS RPG together, sharing laughs and tears in equal measures. The post on the front page is basically there to announce the game in question and give a few tips on getting started. The real action will be happening here in the TouchArcade forums, where you'll find a thread dedicated to each month's featured game. Sign up if you haven't already, post your screenshots, ask for advice, or just chat about your misadventures with others. We've got a great community of RPG fans here at TouchArcade, so let's make the most of it! As a little incentive, at the end of each month, I will randomly pick one of the participants and send them something small and silly from here in Japan. All you have to do to be eligible is, well, play along with the Play-Along!

As expected, the March Play-Along of Lunar: Silver Star Story Touch proved to be a tough challenge for most. Not only is it longer and more difficult than the previous games we've played together, there were a lot of great new releases in March to play. Still, there was plenty of fun participation in the forum thread, and by all indications, many will continue playing the game even though the month is formally finished. Thanks to all who joined in, and I hope to see you in this month's thread! March's winner of a Small and Silly Prize has been pulled from the ever-temperamental Magic Moogle Hat after giving it a good shake. This month's winner is none other than nkx! I'll be in touch soon through a Private Message to get your mailing address, nkx. To everyone else, a new month brings another chance to win a Small and Silly Thing from Japan!

For the April Play-Along, I figured we would play something a little lighter all-around. Not too light, mind you. I don't want you all to have too much free time! For such an occasion, I think Lava Level's 2013 release QuestLord fits the bill perfectly. This is one of the more approachable first-person dungeon crawlers I've played, and its three distinct character set-ups should provide some variety to help keep the stories interesting and worth sharing. Lava Level is currently working on a sequel to the game, so this might be a good time to revisit QuestLord even if you've already played it before. As was the case in previous months, you'll need to grab the game from the App Store if you don't already own it. Then, either log into or sign up for the TouchArcade forums and come on over here to say hello. You don't need to beat the game to qualify for the random draw, but I would like to see at least one screenshot of your progress at some point, okay?

Well I dropped the ball on the Lunar play-a-long because I was too distracted by my Switch and Breath of the Wild. I'm going to try again this month though. I've played Questlord before but I don't remember finishing it. Here's Roland the Warrior. Named after a character in Stephen Kings Dark Tower series.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't this cow put in the game as a thank you to the TA member undeadcow for helping with the game?

It is not. I got the "This app might slow down your phone" message when I downloaded it. It's working fine so far though.

Hi. I remember this game too, but don't recall finishing it. I'm in! I will post a screen shot tonight, just re-downloaded. And I also have been pre occupied with the switch and Zelda breath of the wild! Looks like I'm in the right thread with the right people! I think il try elf also, as i usually prefer playing a Spell caster because spells are fun lol. Also, I am happy to hear that part 2 is being worked on, because I really like this style of game, although my favourite type of game is turn based strategy (fire emblem, advance wars, XCOM, etc.
