Another Rataliaka easy 1000g game graces us with its presence, but is it any good and is it worth a play? Milo’s Quest is a retro inspired, top-down, adventure puzzle game.
The young puppy, Milo, is enjoying his time in the park and sees a delicious bone to chew on! This bone is cursed and sets free the Evil King Old Skull. Now it’s up to Milo to go on an adventure to save the world by stopping the curse!
As Milo, you will travel to multiple different locations, completing simple puzzles to progress to the next area. At the start you won’t have any abilities, but as you progress you will unlock certain items that will help you defeat the evil that been unleashed. Think old school Zelda, but you’re a dog.
The puzzles are simple enough – you will have to push boxes onto switches to open a new area. These are fun but not challenging. If you make a mistake you will just have to go back to the previous area and then return and the room is reset. This can be annoying if enemies are there as you will have to kill them all over again.
You have a stamina bar, so you can’t keep constantly attacking enemies and you will have to let it recharge before you can go again. You can pick up items that increase not only your stamina but your hearts so you can take more hits and attack more. These are unlocked by collecting small bones hidden in bushes or locked in chests to access the item areas within the world.
You have to complete all the main areas, picking up keys which unlock the boss chamber. You will then have to defeat the big boss to go onto the next world. The boss are fun fights and a solid part of the game. Each boss has a unique ability so you will have to work it out before being able to kill it.
It is a very short game, taking about 45 mins to get all the achievements and maybe 2 hours to do the whole game. You can choose from three different difficulty levels – the higher the difficulty, the higher the boss hearts. The achievements aren’t tied to difficulty so for an easy ride, pick the lowest.
This is definitely one of the better games that has been brought out and I actually did enjoy my short time with the game. If FoxyLand can get two games then I hope this one does too.
Milo’s Quest was a very short journey. As always with Ratalaika games, if you want an easy 1000g then pick this up. It’s cute and simple and has a different gimmick. There’s nothing stressful or annoying. It was a game that just worked, with simple puzzles and fun gameplay.
