App description: The Quest HD - Islands of Ice and Fire is an expansion to The Quest HD, a beautifully hand-drawn open world role playing game with old school grid-based movement and turn based combat. After enabling the expansion, you can continue to play The Quest HD with your existing character(s) to explore new areas and quests. However, if you don't have The Quest HD, you can also play the expansion as a standalone game.

A mysterious illness has devastated an island in a remote corner of the kingdom of Monares. Icy Thule and its opposite twin, fiery Eldfell are now on a lockdown on the order of the local Governor. King Mersant has choosen you, as his most experienced agent, to investigate...

If you have played the expansion before: we added new quests and improved the existing ones!

Key Features:
- Explore expansive new areas, dungeons and towns.
- Clash with dangerous new monsters!
- Solve many new quests and claim powerful new items as your prizes.
- Round out your arsenal with a new weapon type: Crossbows!

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 "Islands of Ice and Fire" as your travel destination. It is recommended to reach at least level 14 before trying to take on the challenges the isles pose.

So just to be sure, I buy this and then it unlocks the expansion in the main The Quest HD app?

It doesn't do it just buy you buying it.

You have to run it, then select "Enable in The Quest HD" option the main menu.

It'll then start The Quest HD, which will notify you of the successful enabling. After that you can delete the expansion app. (There might be circumstances when the notification doesn't happen. But if The Quest HD starts up, the expansion should have been enabled.)

Do you have to continue with a high level character? Or can you start the expansion with newly created character?

Either one. If I recall correctly, you have to be around level 15 at least to play the expansion.

Awesome! Thanks for allowing it to work inside the main app, I was really hoping that the expansions would work that way. Bought it, hopefully it sells and allows the other expansions to be updated, I'd love to see the HD app have the same content as the Gold app, but I know that some of the expansions probably won't happen. Thank you for including new quests, too!
