Looking and often feeling like a game made in an earlier and simpler era, The Unexpected Quest would best be characterized as a very simple and watered-down RTS title. The fact that it has come from the mobile space makes that a bit easier to understand though. This is a game all about managing your resources, constantly checking back and clicking to get your workers to pick up supplies of various kinds, constructing buildings, and being sure to have the proper units and upgrades necessary to progress. The thing is, there’s very little strategy at play aside from perhaps being more efficient to save your time, and that makes your successes generally unsurprising and lacking in excitement. Perhaps if you’re a newbie to gaming or at least the real-time strategy genre The Unexpected Quest may be a good way to get your feet wet with the genre, anyone with even a moderate level of experience in the genre in general will likely find this to be a slog though.
