Really I feel 🌟🌟🌟 about this game Free, Ad free, rpg, acceptable permissions, not buggy. That alone puts Gurk ahead of some. The lack of story really hurts my motivation. I feel more like some kind of treasure hunting raider than a noble hero on a quest. The mechanics are fair. The skeleton icon makes me wish I had a necromancer with a party of skeletons and wraiths and what not instead of being the bone breaker. Maybe I'll feel differently if I complete it, maybe not.
Actually Very decent. I actually expected it to be awful and honestly downloaded it to laugh at it, thinking the reviews can't be serious. I am a fan of the old gen RPGs and these Gurk games do them justice, instead of making fun of them. This one would get 5 stars but loses 1 for being too easy and short and lack of monster variation. Not a problem in Gurk 2, which I bought after reading it was longer(this is good but 2 is way better). Now that I see 3, I will buy that too once I reup my Google Play credit.
Simple yet Sweet! I'd like to say thank you to the makers of Gurk! Never have 8 bits brought me so many hours of entertainment! I plan to buy 2 & 3 as I complete them. With a grand total of $3.05 for all 3 games I feel like I'm robbing you guys! And with the way I play I'll probably get at least 100 hours of fun out of them, that's 3.05 cents per hour. I've spent much more on much worse games. I love your "first time's free" marketing (Gurk 1 is free) and the absence of ads really makes you true gentlemen. Much respect!! :)
Simply Fun If you liked old skool RPGs then you will like Gurk. It is simple and can turn into a grind at times. The story is non existent so you basically just explore and find treasure. I see potential and I am looking forward to playing the sequels.
Considering to buy Gurk II and III The random encounters were spaced nicely and could be challenging. Liked the minimalistic/8-bit motif. The parts I didn't like include that it had no storyline (and no ending) and that it was short. But it was gratis, adfree, and the memory and disk space usage was miniscule, which are always plusses.
Beautifully Old School This game brings me back to some of my fondest gaming days when I played Ultima IV for days on end. The game play is smooth, meaningful, and over-all addictive (in a good way). I will be getting the sequels...
Finally got rid of that annoying Gurk II ad! Thanks for the patience, Nexus 4 users. Be sure to check out Gurk II and Gurk III!
