The Quest: Islands of Ice and Fire OUT!

[App Store Link, 3.99]



Quote:
The Quest - Islands of Ice and Fire is an expansion to The Quest, a beautifully handdrawn, engaging and sinister world full of mystery, magic and provocative challenges. After enabling the expansion, you can continue to play The Quest with your existing character(s) to explore new areas and quests. However, if you don't have The Quest, you can also play the expansion as a standalone game.

In the game you are a Kingdom Agent on special assignment to discover the source of a mysterious illness that has devastated one island (icy Thule) and threatens another (fiery Eldfell). You'll need all your wits and gaming talents as you travel through these deceptively picturesque worlds to overcome new challenges, for good or evil.

In the expansion you will find:
- Over 30 hours of additional gameplay
- New monsters with graphics/abilities/properties
- New weapon type: crossbow and its ammo, crossbow bolt
- New, superiorly enchantable armors and weapons
- A brand new spell with its own effect
- A lethal disease - keep yourself away from that one!
- Many new quests, NPCs and high level shops
- New books to learn skills from

To access the new areas (not applicable if you are playing the expansion standalone), go to Mithria harbor and talk to captain Hanty, then select "The Quest Isle" as your travel destination. It is recommended to reach at least level 14 before trying to take on the challenges the isles pose.

The Quest - Islands of Ice and Fire is developed by Redshift and published by Chillingo Ltd

So, how does one transfer the character from the original to the expansion?

Edit
Ok nevermind, I see that the original post has been update with that info.

Ahhh.. and so ends my Appstore hiatus.... Real Racing ain't out... Zenonia ain't out... I haven't really reached level 14, but this one's an exception just too damn good to pass
