Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Puzzle Quest Chapters 1 & 2, from TransGaming Inc.
For those unfamiliar with Puzzle Quest as it was released on other platforms, the game is combination of a match-three puzzler like Bejeweled and an RPG that sees you battling against all manner of enemies as you level up and become a stronger competitor, all in an effort to save the world from a dark force.
The game’s combat system sees you matching three or more like colored orbs to collect mana, which allows you to launch both offensive and defensive spells, while also keeping an eye out for opportunities to create matches of three or more skulls, which causes instant damage to your opponent.
You’ll meet new characters along the way, some of which will join you as companions on your quest, and you’ll even be able to tame mounts or upgrade spells by taking part in single-player (that is, outside of combat) puzzle sequences.
In this package you’ll receive the Revenge of the Plague Lord expansion pack, in addition to the original game, with the third installment of the trilogy set to be released on iTunes sometime in the future.
If you want to try a different take on the match-three puzzler, be sure to download the game while it’s free today.
