Summary

Milos Quest is a puzzle game with a simple formula. Move blocks onto buttons and dash kill enemies. That’s all the game is and yet I found myself sitting there and playing through the whole game! It’s not challenging in any way but it’s just the right kind of chill game and one that is easy on the eyes and the gameplay is fluid enough to keep you engaged. The music, however, is not good and I am not a fan of music tracks on loop. The Platinum trophy is an absolute cakewalk and I got it without even realizing, I finished the game well under 2 hours and whilst it was fine to play, it was a short game a repetitive game and a game so easy it’s not funny but it is worth a quick play of only for the Platinum trophy. To be honest the Platinum trophy is the only real reason to play it unless you want to get a new game and finish it within hours.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
