Greek Mythology takes flight in Chillingo’s NyxQuest for iOS

Spanish developer Over The Top Games ports partners with Chillingo to bring action-platformer NyxQuest to iOS devices. The game is a port of the original Nintendo WiiWare version. The game hit the App Store August 11 in both standard and HD (for iPad) editions, priced at $3.99 and $4.99, respectively. Lite version of both editions are also available.

NyxQuest stars a female protagonist named Nyx in the era of ancient Greece. This winged hero is on a quest to uncover the whereabouts of her missing friend, Icarus. The game tasks players with controlling Nyx as she runs, jumps, flies and glides through 2.5D side-scrolling levels, navigating platforms and battling enemies. There are also some light puzzle elements involving the moving of blocks in order to proceed further in the game’s levels.

During her adventure, Nyx is bestowed with new powers and abilities by the Greek gods. Some of these, such as controlling currents of air, involve the use of the device’s touch screen. The gestures performed by players are similar to those that could be done using the Wii Remote in the original console version of the game.

The game is on the short side, lasting just over three hours. Chillingo has given no indication that downloadable content or any in-app purchases will be made available to extend the gameplay experience.
