As promised, TransGaming has delivered the version 1.3 update to Puzzle Quest [App Store]. The new free upgrade offers continued graphics, sound and performance enhancements as well as the entirety of Chapter 2.

With Chapter 2 upgrade brings 20+ more hours of gameplay to the $7.99 game which brings the total game time to 40+ hours. Puzzle Quest was originally released for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable in early 2007 and became a surprise hit.

Puzzle Quest brings together Role Playing and Match-3 gameplay into a harmonious package. Set in a traditional fantasy world occupied by knights, orcs, wizards and warriors, you must complete quests in order to progress the storyline. Beyond the actual storyline, there are also a number of side-quests that can also be pursued.

A free demo version remains available for those to try the game out.

Our gameplay video from Version 1.0 provides a feel for gameplay, though there have been graphics and performance enhancements since:

    With the upgrade,they seem to have improved many of the previous problems. You can now see affects/resistances etc. in battle and you can exit a battle in the middle if you need to. I already like this more than the PSP/DS version and portability makes this better than the PS3 version (haven't tried 360) This seems to be the best deal on the iphone market right now and an absolutely-can't-miss game if you even remotely like RPGs (everyone likes bejeweled to some degree)

    With this update, there is no reason why anyone who likes RPGs, puzzle games, or games in general shouldn't have this. This game was worth the 9.99 that I bought it, now that Chap. 2 has hit and it's lowered to 7.99, this purchase is a no-brainer.

    I checked for updated apps on my iPhone and it doesn't show up. How do we get the free update? I guess I could just delete it and redownload it, right?

    @breadfan if you delete/redownload I believe you'll lose your saved character data.

    I was able to download the new version on my MacBook. Haven't had a chance to play it yet.
    I am excited about Galactrix too but I can't find it anywhere. Some places are saying it will be available on the 26th (Amazon, Best Buy).

    Be careful when updating. I updated to 1.3 last night and played around for a little bit with my character. For some reason the app store wanted me to update PQ again today so I did (thinking maybe there was a problem with the 1.3 update) and my character is now gone. RIP.

    Anybody else having problems with puzzle quest v. 1.3 on os 3.0? My game keeps getting laggy after a few minutes and then it inevitabily crashes...

    Update needed for the app to run on os 3.0!!!!

    • Will

      Andy, I have the same problem. I thought of deleting it and reinstalling but I don't want to loose my progress.

    • Chris

      Andy, I emailed the publisher today because of that very problem and their reply was as follows...

      "An update for OS 3 has been submitted to Apple and will be available
      for download soon."

      Here's hoping we see it in the next few days.

      • Andi

        Will: the same here. I'm afraid I'll lose my progress if I delete and reinstall the game. And I'm somewhere around Level 30+...

        Chris: Ah, there's still hope out there.

        And as sad as it is that others have the same troubles as I do - it's at least a little comfort to see that I'm not alone... :-)

        Soooooo... let's wait for the PQ-Update. :-)

    So does this game currently only go to about 2/3 the way through what the DS and PSP versions are?
