As promised, TransGaming has released the 1.1 update to Puzzle Quest [App Store]. The update lists "enhanced graphics, performance improvements, and minor bug fixes" amongst the new features.

Most notably, TransGaming has tweaked the gameplay graphics a bit to help readability of the text.

Version 1.0 Text:

Improved Version 1.1 Text:


Other fixes include performance and one potentially major bug in which players could lose their character. Overall, the changes are relatively small, but may be enough to sway those who were waiting.

The core of the game, however, remains true and has been enough to win over many Puzzle Quest newcomers, despite the minor issues. If you are unfamiliar with the game itself, be sure to check out our gameplay video from the 1.0 release.

    in this case, I think the release price is fair. $9.99 for 1/2 of the original game. More gameplay than most iPhone games out there.

    I would pay $25 for a complete Puzzle Quest but dividing games into chapters like this is just silly when the game is already complete.

    Games lite Toy Bot Diaries and 1112 was/is not completely finished when the first chapters hit the appstore which let the developers work with the rest of the chapters and get valuable feedback from buyers as well.

    This is much better, even though there's still room for improvement. The ability to check status effects and equipment is still missing, and so is the multiplayer part. Perhaps Transgaming can add a control that would take the players to a separate screen where players can see the combatants' portraits and check their details during a battle?

    Performance can still do with a bit of tuning, even though things are much better. Still, this the only game that I play on my Iphone, apart from the occasional bout of Rolando.

    The inability to see status and equip effects drives me nuts. imo, it's completely ridiculous to take 20plus points of damage from a 3 match of reg skulls because a Rune Guard has some invisble +1000 battle skill weapon that scales up per colored mana. Especially, when it is a mana type that could be drained by whatever class ability.

    Still a great game though, and the patch makes it better. If the devs fix the effects problem, the game would pretty close to a perfect port.

    This is to everyone who tried to defend the initial puzzle quest release: Your welcome. Honestly, though we argue over many things on forums and such, it is to the betterment of everyone. If you doubt that it was our voices and those on their game reviews that made the release these specific changes, your mistaken.
    We have to keep standing up and defending our rights as consumers. its OUR money their getting, so we should not accept ANYTHING just because its "product X". Demand quality, that they must produce it. Demand reasonable prices, and they must reduce it. never let anyone tell you your voice is annoying. Its those same voices that "fixed" Katamari, and the same voices who "fixed" Super Monkey Ball, and the same ones who made them fix this.
    Now, if you'll excuse me, i'm going to go and FINALLY download this game.
