Previously released on mobile devices after two years of development, SwapQuest for PS Vita was in development for almost a year “to make it the most refined experience possible,” Designer Constantin Graf said. In terms of new content you’ll find three new levels located on a mysterious group of islands, a massive new boss fight, and a new character class called the Tinkerer, with button controls supported as well.
Graf talked about SwapQuest:
SwapQuest is a mix of a retro RPG with a tile-swapping puzzle game, inspired by classics like Pipe Mania. The idea behind it was to take many of the elements I loved as a child in console RPGs from the 90’s and blend them with a movement system more reminiscent of a puzzle game.
Out came SwapQuest on PS Vita, an easy-to-learn yet hard-to-master gaming experience that combines the development of your own character with puzzle levels that feel fresh every time due to their procedural nature. The game started small, but the concept took on a life of its own as more and more RPG elements found their way into the game.
A price for SwapQuest on PS Vita wasn’t given.
