We've got a review up if you need some additional convincing, but hopefully the $0 price tag is all you need to download this super fun game.

Once you do, I recommend picking up the $3.99 red gem unlock IAP, which is basically the Nimble Quest equivalent of a coin doubler. It goes a long way in speed up your overall progress, as all your upgrades are paid for in gems, and the more gems you can earn, the better. Of course, red gems are totally optional, it's just going to take you a little longer to unlock everything in game.

Also of note is the fact that Nimble Quest was just updated with iOS 7 controller support. Of course, actual controllers are nowhere to be found yet, but it's cool to know that there's yet another game out there that supports 'em when they get here.

    It won't let me download it. It says that I can't connect to the iTunes Store every time I try. Even though I'm already there.

  • thecool111

    It was free in the beginning.

    • dancj

      Yeah. I was surprised to see that a game that I thought had always been free had dropped in price.

      Cracking game though.

        Yup - as in "This is cracking cheese Grommit"

    • Karzay

      No one or thing is ever completely free....

  • err404

    Is the update broken for anybody else? It keeps changing my movement direction to "down" even when I'm not touching the screen.

    • Colin

      Yeah, it's buggy for me too. I don't know if it's the update or iOS 7. I've been lifting my thumb really high just to make sure I'm not accidentally hitting the screen and it randomly just changes direction (sometimes killing half my train). Pretty annoying.

    • yzumbado

      Yes, it happens to my too. At the beginning thought that I was doing something wrong, but is a bug 🙁 hope they fix it soon.

    My invisible controller arrived this morning. It's got everything I ever wanted and it makes a superb latte.

    • Karzay

      But is it cordless?

      • JJE McManus

        It has an onboard cold fusion reactor
        Plus my dog now has that new-car smell

  • Grummie

    This game suuuuuuucked "my personal preference anyway" sorry guys I bought it cause of your review but for me I just couldn't get into it!

  • lazrhog

    Free game of the week ? Just unannounced yet ?

  • darkcheetah

    Best version of snake to date.

  • GamerGuy

    A frustrating game...can't get into it.

  • worldcitizen1919

    Keeps crashing on ios 7 every time I touch 'play'. No wonder its free.

    • darkcheetah

      This is why I always wait a few weeks before updating my iOS until all the apps are updated for it.

  • echo_pdx

    I liked this game but the devs just haven't been putting any effort into keeping it relevant. Controller support? La-dee-da. What about new heroes? New levels?

  • fleshman

    iCloud support? no
    Achievements? no
    Stupid, useless "everyplay face cam support"? Hell yes

    ... The heck is wrong with them?
