Slide Quest is a different twist on the traditional labyrinth. You know that game with the marble and the mazes and the holes to avoid? Yes, that is the one.

The bad guys have taken over our beautiful kingdom in Slide Quest, and it’s in total chaos! You have to save the world and quickly! Work together to guide this brave, rolling knight through this turbulent adventure that is lined with twists and traps!

Slide Quest is a different twist on the traditional labyrinth. You know that game with the marble and the mazes and the holes to avoid? Yes, that is the one. However, in Slide Quest, you are trying to avoid boulders and holes and safely navigate through arches, etc. Oh! That marble now has knight on top!

Gameplay Mechanics

8/10

The mechanics are quite simple. You will guide your knight across the maps avoiding obstacles. They provide you with twenty different maps with two modes to play:

1. Mini Quests – There are four different mini quests. Each quest comprises five maps that make up one world. Safely guide the knight through the five maps and you win!

2. A Grand Quest – Safely guide the knight through the whole universe of all 20 maps and save the kingdom!

Each map has various obstacles to overcome, and you set all of this up when the map is placed inside the board on top of the levers. Then players control the levers to move the knight around the board. There are boulders, dynamite, guards, and more!

There are three different levels of play with the life counter.

I enjoy playing dexterity games with my niece and nephew so I was excited to get this one to the table with them. They surprised me with how much content was in the box for a children’s dexterity game.

In the box, you will find a board, 4 levers which are sturdy plastic, and 20 maps that are nice glossy cardstock. Also included is the rolling knight which is very well made, as well as all the plastic obstacles. The life counter and heart marker are thick cardboard.

I am impressed with the artwork. It is “cartoonish-medieval” and is done so in a way that any adults may enjoy it.

If you enjoy the old style Labyrinth game, then you will like this in-depth version. My nephew enjoyed this one and will probably try it again.

The publisher suggest 7+. This is right on if not playing with four players. I found the dexterity level to be more difficult when each lever was controlled by a different player. The game is easier with one player in my opinion. I helped my nephew a little, but it was harder for him when I was controlling two levers.

Overall, this is a solid game if it is in your wheelhouse. The components are all high quality and it brings back some nostalgia.

I am looking forward to giving this one a try alone because I have always enjoyed the old-school labyrinth game. I even have a couple of Wii games similar that I enjoy.
