As a creator of the expansions, I can't try to influence you--I suggest you search each one here--look at the comments--you can do that also in itunes--look at the reviews---and then make your decision--you could try HOLI and see what you think.

Most people seem to think the Quest Gold is a lot of bang for your buck. : )

Most people seem to like if not love the expansions and you become a part of an ongoing community!

I will bet my catly tail you will fall in love with the expansions. : )

Hero of Lukomorye I was our first expansion. I think it has hours of very satisfying game play but again--as a creator, I don't want to influence you--read the reviews on itunes--and search the expansion here.

We (Zarista Games) did not make Archipelagos so I can't comment on that. You can search it here.

First, when going through reviews, ignore the moronic ones like "No fighting, just walking around a village" because they obviously haven't pressed on any doors and met anyone for a quest :S

Anyway, I seem to have phrased off my The Quest madness now, IDK why. It's probably because of Halo and I may return over the next few months.

Urm, yeah, you should get a lot of the expansions. I started off with the fun Cursed Chess Set. Some of the expansions start you at a high level if you play them alone (Lost Arch, Asteroids...) and are more difficult than the base game/Chess Set.

I think -- and again-- I shouldn't really comment but---I think one of the nicest things about the Quest is that you get to belong to a community of people who really have a lot to share and want to help each other---

that community is important to me and am always happy when there are new members--it's not just the 2.99---of course that's important to me because it means I can buy new game graphics. : ) But more than that is invaluable the bonus I've gotten as a game creator of all the people who have become a part of our community--I couldn't say what that means in dollars and cents----because you can't put a price on that---you can't put a price on community---but your good will is and hopefully your enjoyment--is why I love making the expansions----

If I can't make games that give people enjoyment, that's when I will stop. : )

The feedback of the community keeps me going.....

I really wanna get into The Quest, but it seems like I'm missing something. I've always heard good things, but to me, the controls are clunky, combat is unintuitive, and theres not enough direction. I don't want my hand held but I wanna know what's going on. I haven't played in a while though, and that was a really early version so maybe it's better now. I actually like the art style, so no complaints there

I personally didn't like the Hero of Lukomorye ones, but the rest are great!

the qeust is by far the deepest rpg on the ios, or any handheld for that matter. easily around 300 hrs of gameplay with the expansions. I also love the art style.

For at least my own future reference here are the expansions listed by order of recommended level for challenge:

Cursed Chess Set - designed for new characters
Islands of Ice and Fire - level 14+
Hero of Lukomorye I - level 22+
Hero of Lukomorye II - level 32+
Mirthril Hero - level 35+
Hero of Lukomorye III - level 38+
Escape from Asteroids - level 40+
Hero of Lukomorye IV - level 45+
Lost Archipelagos - level 45+
Attack from Asteroids - level 58+

I'm going to get The Quest Gold and Cursed Chess Set (plus Lost Archipelagos because it's free) then pick them up as I level through (assuming The Quest keeps me interested that long & I am optimistic). Thanks for the advice.

That's right on! : ) I hope you enjoy them!

And then when you finish them--you can take the Challenge--which we are conducting right now but I have fallen behind as had to test Asteroids II and HOLV---see how fast you can get through them all just doing the main quests---- : )

Or play as a cleric using only wooden items. : )

HOLV is coming soon. : )

Keep in mind that Archipelagos was made by a very youthful creator who won the "make the best expansion contest" and don't judge the whole Quest and its expansions by it--but enjoy what it has to offer you. : )

That is one of the nice things of the community of the Quest --- that he could make an expansion and get support. He needed a lot of help from the community to make Archipelagos and he got it. But he's still learning so keep a separate save file. : )
