The most $$ I've spent to date on an app...

...and worth every penny! Hours...and hours...and hours of gameplay. Should be listed in the Highly Addictive Games area. Engaging mix of basic RPGs and Bejeweled. The fact that the Bejeweled game is turn-based makes it much more strategic and fun to play. Quests and treasures gained in the RPG mode give you boosts when playing the board game. I've been at it for around 20 hours and I don't think I'm through the first chapter yet. Regardless, you can play the mini-game continuously so the RPG element is almost secondary. Even at $5.00 for all 3 chapters it's still one of the best bargains in the App Store.
A couple of minor negatives: The game cheats insanely sometimes in favor of your opponent in the board game. You lose points if you mis-tap; which is very easy to do since the board is quite small. The RPG storyline is rambling and hard to follow--I'm all over the map on quests and really have no idea how far I am into the game itself. Overall though, an awesome app and well worth the $5.00. I am one seriously cheap bastard when it comes to spending $$ on apps and I have no qualms at all about the money I spent on this one.
NOTE: As another reviewer said, this is the best configuration for buying the complete game--Buy Chapter 1 and then Chapters 2 & 3 in-app. There are several quite confusing configurations but in this way you get all 3 chapters for $5.00.
The version to get
Puzzle Quest is easily one of the best games on the app store, and this is the cheapest way to play it. It'll cost you $5 to get chapters 1&2, and the Plague Lord expansion (ep. 3). The chapter 1&2 edition costs $5 alone and buying out of the free edition will apparently leave you with the ugly "FREE" icon. This game is incredibly deep, fun, and long. Expect about 80 hours to do everything, and the replay value is excellent. I don't like match-3 puzzlers but they just work here. One of the best purchases you can make on the app store.
Puzzle Qu... Oh, I have to restart now?
I quite liked this game on the DS, but this port is horrifying. The touch sensitivity is very inaccurate, the buttons are too small, and it is beset with a number of bugs:
-When creating a character, you cannot enter a new name because the "Accept" button is behind the keyboard (Name is landscape, keypad is portrait, so the keypad hides the name field)
-The game randomly crashes for no apparent reason
-When the game launches, it often goes to a random menu instead of the main menu. I have almost accidentally deleted my hero several times due to this
-Sometimes, the colors are messed up. The health bars and the mana bars are not rendered correctly, and instead of a circle appearing around a piece when you select it, it looks like it is surrounded by triangles
-Probably worst of all, I figured out that the best way to get Chapters 2 and 3 would be for $3 through the in-app store. Even though this game is buggy, I have enjoyed it, so I decided to buy the next 2 chapters. I clicked "Buy," put in my password, and got a message: Thank you for your purchase. THAT IS ALL I GOT. The other 2 chapters have not downloaded, and I have no way to re-download them due to iTunes' draconian DRM schemes. I just wasted 3 bucks. And it may not seem like much, but I'm pretty sure it's illegal to promise a service for pay, and then not to provide the service.
This game can be fun once you get past all the bugs. I have found myself putting hours into this game, just trying to level up my character. But this is possibly the worst port of a game I have ever seen, and it appears to have no support whatsoever. If you don't mind spending 10-15 minutes getting the game to work properly before you start playing every time, go ahead. Otherwise, I wouldn't waste my time or money.
