here's a manual for The Quest in PDF

it's for the PocketPC version but seems accurate to the iPhone version as well from what I could tell.

I'm very surprised they were able to keep this download below 10MB. (8.9MB to be exact)

Oh my god, this brought a tear to my eye as it immediately reminded me of my favourite games back when I was such a young kid: Dungeon Master, Ultima III: Exodus, Lands Of Lore. I loved those RPGs and I fear I cannot resist this. Damn, it's gonna be one hefty iTunes bill this month!!!!! Already bought Pocket God, and expecting to buy Shooter, Zen Bound, Vector Tanks, and god knows what else!!!

More like daggerfall. They should remove graphically stunning from the description. It doesn't bother me much that the graphics are extremely dated and grainy as hell, but it's not fair to mislead people. Anyway, seems like it has a lot of depth.

This is pretty good.
For dated and grainy graphics, the feel of the game is surprisingly atmospheric. Nice touches like the rain and thunder/lightning effects really draw you into it. The music is great.

It seems like a deep game, one that will last for hours and hours.

Looking forward to playing this more.

The framerate is perfect, but its nothing the iPhone wouldn't be able to handle anyway.

I'm so glad this game is no slideshow, the transitions really make a difference.
