Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff

39 Overall Score

Has the cartoon's look | Family Guy humor

Free-to-play system makes the game unplayable after a few hours of gameplay

The title says it all, the game offers little more.

Following the in the footsteps of games like The Simpsons: Tapped Out, Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff brings the world of Family Guy to smart devices. While it has the aesthetic and occasional humor, the game itself is rendered near unplayable by lengthy waiting times forced upon players.

One of the worst parts about this game is that I really did like it right at first. seeing the animations, unlocking new characters, buildings, and actions was actually interesting. However, after about an hour of gameplay, I was suddenly wanting eight hours to a day for character actions to finish.

What’s worse, is that even besides the waiting time, players really aren’t earning much of anything. Character actions and buildings open other character actions and buildings, but those are only used to open more. there is no true reward or goal that fulfills a players satisfaction. It is all rather pointless.

The Quest for Stuff is just another example of a poor iPhone game created soullessly with the end goal of profit over customer satisfaction. It is a quest for stuff, but really just a quest for your time or money; I suggest giving them neither.
