Game Description

Welcome to Tumblecube Island, where Pokémon™ have turned into cubes?

Set off for adventure in the Pokémon™ Quest game. Venture out with your Pokémon buddies on expeditions across Tumblecube Island in search of loot in this free-to-start action-adventure for the Nintendo Switch™ system. Modify your Pokémon buddies with discovered Power Stones to make your ultimate expedition team.

With a cube-shaped art style, Pokémon™ Quest is unlike any Pokémon game you've seen before. The simple gameplay makes it easy to hop into expeditions and start exploring Tumblecube Island with the help of your Pokémon buddies. Afterwards, head back to your base camp where you can use the loot you found during your adventure to befriend more Pokémon. Attract various Kanto Region Pokémon to your base camp by cooking up dishes made with collected ingredients! You can even decorate your base camp with fun items that provide helpful bonuses that make your expeditions more beneficial.

Pokémon Quest Review – A Square Peg In A Round Hole via Game Informer

With passive gameplay and constant random elements, Pokémon Quest is entirely forgettable

Review: Pokémon Quest via Hardcore Gamer

Pokémon Quest might not have the same variety as many other spin-offs in the series, but it takes a simple idea and extends it into a good experience that encourages really trying to collect them all.

Review: Pokémon Quest (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

Pokémon Quest is a fun little time waster that will satisfy your collect 'em all urges until the real deal launches on Switch in November. This is, for all extents and purposes, a free-to-play mobile game though, so you will have to splash the cash if you want to get the most out of it, but it's far from a money sink. You can get everything you need in a single purchase, or unlock most of it slowly by playing for free. It's one of the most generous freemium systems out there. Overall, it's a great jumping off point for new fans of the series, and the cutesy art style just might win over veterans. Give it a shot.

Pokemon Quest Review: Minecraft Meets Pokemon on the Nintendo Switch via Gadgets 360

It's not a fully-fledged, feature-complete entry in the series, but it does enough to warrant your attention, even if for a little while.

Pokémon Quest (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

Like Pokémon Shuffle before it, Pokémon Quest proves to be a pleasant piece of gaming that is best enjoyed while doing something else, like watching TV or during short trips on public transport, due to the short nature of the experience and limited amount of free play time offered by the base software. Like Pokémon Shuffle, however, even if it is on a console that is handheld at core, it will be best enjoyed portably on a device that people are carrying on their person at all times, like a smartphone, with notifications warning the player that their free plays have recharged and the like, so it's probably best to wait for a smart device version before investing any money in there that may not transfer between different versions.

This game felt quite shallow to me, I played for about 2 hours and didn't have much fun yet, maybe it's just not for me, but at least it was free I guess? I didn't feel involved in the gameplay.

I played for about 20-30 minutes, but ultimately it felt like the game was a much better fit for mobile than for Switch. Supposedly the mobile version should be out soon, so I'll give it another try then and report back.

Definitely an interesting game, and one of the better "mobile" games on the Switch. While I can see the appeal, it doesn't speak much to me personally. I also don't really like how you are at a disadvantage in combat if you play without touch controls. Seeing as I play games 90% of the time docked, that was a huge turnoff to me. But I am glad to see that it is popular and doing well.

i tried it out on Switch, but got instantly turned off by the "touch the screen" home-screen and you having to move the analog stick to move a cursor on the screen. that just won't do it for me. i also wasn't that big of a Pokemon Rumble fan and this game seems to be a light version of that.

This game is probably the funnest I've had with a mobile game in a long time. I just wish it was a little harder to play without giving any input.

My kids love it, but I'm waiting for them to ask me for money for it. Definitely P2W
