The Pokémon Company’s free-to-play, cube-shaped action RPG, Pokémon Quest, is now available for mobile devices. Players can now visit Tumblecube Island and play with blocky Pokémon on Android and iOS.
Pokémon Quest was announced and released on Nintendo Switch in May. We described the Switch version as a stripped-down but still enjoyable take on the Pokémon franchise, likening it to “Minecraft meets the simplistic Pokémon spinoff Pokémon Rumble.”
In Pokémon Quest, players set up base camps on Tumblecube Island and lure in voxel Pokémon. Trainers then take a trio of monsters into battle, albeit not using the familiar turn-based combat of other Pokémon RPGs. Instead, Pokémon Quest limits players’ control of their Pokémon to tapping attack meters once they’re full. Otherwise, the Pokémon go at it on their own.
Pokémon Quest is available now from Apple’s App Store and Google Play. It’s “free to start” and offers in-app purchases.
