The Quest vs Undercroft

I'm tossing up between buying The Quest or Undercroft. They both seem similar in play style, and according to reviews, are pretty good. The main issue I have is whether or not the story/script is well written and interesting. I don't mind graphics, and I can usually get used to awkward controls, but I'll be totally put off the game if it consists of a bland story and/or poorly written text.

At the moment I'm leaning more towards The Quest since the expansions look pretty awesome. Is there a specific one I should start with or would the main game be my best bet?

Anyway, it'd be great to hear some opinions!

My vote goes to The Quest. Start with the main game and work your way through expansions. It's a truly amazing RPG on this platform

I can't have a fair opinion, as I don't have Undercroft, but I really love The Quest and all of it's expansions.

I played both and would recommend both. Undercroft for its fun, the Quest for its sheer mass of content!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

What he said.

You can't go wrong with either game.

There are lite versions of both games, feel free to try them out first!

PS> If you want The Quest - get The Quest Gold - you'll save $$$ on the expansions.

Okay, I went ahead and bought The Quest. It seems like a fun game so far but the lack of direction's kinda annoying. For example, I got told to find some guys kidnapped wife in the forest 'southeast' of the town. I've been searching for bloody ages and I've only run into robbers and archers; no wife. I hope it's not as vague throughout the whole game but, whatever, it seems great nonetheless.

[this took me forever to type out on the phone. Totally not used to it yet. ]

Well most pf the game requires reading instructions clearly and analyzing the map a wee bit but its friggin fun. One hint shes in robbers forest and its better to ransom her back than free her

do you control a party like in Undercroft in the Quest? and are you saying that the Quest is not fun lol? or undercroft is just more fun?

Undercroft definitely looks very pretty when compared to the Quest, so i'm leaning more towards that but idk.

The quest is much more fun than undercroft IMO but undercroft has better visuals and the quest has no parties
