BEDMINSTER, NJ and SEATTLE, WA — Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider and Reaxion Corporation, a market leading publisher and developer of cutting-edge 3D, 2D and multiplayer mobile games, today announced the availability of Hero's Quest on Verizon Wireless' Get It Now® service. Published by Reaxion and developed by G5 Software, Hero's Quest is a classic role-playing game featuring a richly detailed fantasy world filled with monsters, magic and mystery.
Players create characters by developing skills that help them solve problems, complete quests and win battles. Hero's Quest is played on a massive strategic map. There are hundreds of locations to explore and additional downloadable expansions with continuing storylines, new monsters and game objects. Players can store previously developed characters (experience, skills and all other characteristics) and use them with new expansion packs.
Hero's Quest not only offers strong storylines, it also provides many elements that help make each game unique, including: 30 different armies, 38 unique spells, 18 secondary skills, 24 artifacts and 50 kinds of weapons. There are two game modes depending on the class of the main character: mage or warrior.
"Hero's Quest takes mobile role-playing games to the next level," said Nathan Manning, Reaxion's vice president of marketing.
