Author: @GeekDadGamer and Jo Robertson.


Hawk's Quest Trials of the Adventurers Guild. You explore a toy like world as a small girl and after the comprehensive tutorial, discover a large world full of enemies and puzzles to solve. It looks like the remastered Legend of Zelda Links Awakening, but the focus is on combat here.

Play involves using sword, blocking and dodging to defeat various enemies. As you progress you need to draw on your ranged attacks and magic abilities. As each round begins you choose a starting ability and open random loot to help your current run.

It's a challenging game that is designed to be difficult. The challenge is to get a little further each time and discover how to interact with and progress through the different areas you discover. You must evolve and adapt your play style and survive long enough to masters all forms of combat.
