Are you looking for a quick casual RPG game in the Andriod/iOS marketplace? Well, look no further. Whether you’re looking for a village to save, monsters to kill, or loot to grab, Postknight is a beautifully drawn 2d side-scrolling game that doesn’t disappoint. ‘Postknight’ reimagines the best parts of role-playing games into bite-sized bits within an exciting delivery adventure.
You start the game as a new postknight delivering what seems to be your first package. You’re tasked to deliver a package to the village of ‘Pompon’. When you finally get to the village, you find out about a fake dragon that was rumored to attack the village. Because of the rumor, a lot of the villagers ran away. So you pretty much have to find the villagers who ran away and tell them to come back and deliver their mail to them.
According to the Postknight’s Google play description, The story follows the adventures of a ‘Postknight’. He’s a knight who is tasked with difficult or dangerous deliveries in the grand kingdom of ‘Kurestal’. Through deliveries, the postknight meets other characters with different backgrounds, while venturing across the kingdom of ‘Kurestal’ and beyond.
There are different villages besides the intro village of Pompon. There is ‘Shello Bay’, ‘Griffondell’, ‘Caldemount’, and ‘Valley of Gold’. Each village becomes harder and harder as you progress.
The dialogue is quick and straight to the point, which is a good thing for casual type gamers. Personally, I not a fan of long conversations with NPCs. For me, the story was not relevant to why I was playing the game. I wasn’t much interested in the characters, I pretty much understood the main concept, which was enough for me. But don’t get me wrong, the story does deliver to the casual gamer.
After playing this game for roughly 8 hours, I can say I am still addicted. From killing wolfs on the outskirts of the village to upgrading my sword and armor, I like the EXP grind ‘Postknight’ gives me. The game was designed to be an enjoyable RPG for those “on-the-go” people. ‘Postknight’ is optimized for Andriod and iOS mobile devices. From a wide audience of hardcore and casual players, this game has a lot to achieve. Instead of spending long hours to experience the highlights of an RPG adventure, Postknight delivers it in small yet exciting pieces.

Crafting Items & Brewing Potions
Crafting items became the main objective for me in the game. I needed to get gear fast in order to continue in the game. I felt that the bosses become really hard at the second town. It forces you to start grinding all the exp and items you can. As you get the final tier armor and weapons on each town you should be able to beat the bosses.
Brewing potions is pretty simple and really required. As you will fight harder bosses later on, Potions become more and more of a necessity to be upgraded all the time. Also, don’t forget to upgrade your potions with the ingredients from the older towns
That’s right, I said dating girls. You can date girls in this game. I know what you’re thinking, Has this game just turned into a dating-sim? No, no it has not. Don’t worry, this is a family-friendly game. Later on in the game, you can start to date girls by giving them gifts, that you find throughout your gameplay. When trying to impress girls with your gifts, there is actually an icon that will appear next to items, so that you can see what gifts she would be interested in. Honestly, having a girlfriend is the game is pretty cool. After you start dating, she will start to give you items that she finds (While cleaning the house, talk about sexist, lol jk, it’s fine). You can receive gifts from your ‘gf’ every 12 hours, so make sure you login for those presents.
The controls feel very nice and simple. Your postknight automatically moves to the right of the screen. Since he automatically walks and swings his sword himself, your main job is to press the abilities when need be. You easily just press on the abilities in the bottom tray and it executes the ability, giving it a cooldown.
The graphics were really well done. I like the cartoony style and bright colors. Designed to be an enjoyable RPG for those on-the-go, ‘Postknight’ is optimized for mobile devices: from content to controls, for hardcore and casual players, to time spent in and out of the game. Instead of spending long hours to experience the highlights of an RPG adventure, Postknight delivers it in small yet exciting pieces.
If you interested in single player type games, seriously check out ‘Postknight’. This game should be easily accessible via Google Play Store or the iOS Appstore. The game is free-to-play and is accessible on many mobile devices.
