Tree House Quest

Being the youngest is both rewarding and challenging. In some cases, being the youngest is more like being a curse especially if you got older brother and sister who know nothing but to take advantage of you and bully you all the time. Tree House Quest follows a story of a poor boy who just got bullied his elder brother and sister by taking over his Tree House. Now, in order to bring his Tree House back, he must prove to his older brother that he is not weak and he is strong enough to own it back. In order to do so, Jacob (the protagonist of the story) must set himself in an action packed journey. Who would have thought that this simple objective of reclaiming his tree house will take him to an exciting journey that is way far beyond his imagination? If you think you can help this poor little guy in accomplishing his mission, then feel free to play this game and see how far you can go.

The game starts off with a simple introduction that shows how your epic journey begins. Jacob was really upset about his brother and has become very eager for revenge. As far as the gameplay is concerned, Tree House Quest is seemingly inspired from Pokemon. The navigation and the battle system were both identical to the classic Pokemon but this game is somehow special and distinctive in its own right. Charming and entertaining! That is how I can perfectly describe this game and considering that this game was made in a limited time as an entry for the recently concluded Ludum Dare Challenge, the result was truly amazing. In the entire course of the game, the player will be asked to navigate the maze-like map, accept numerous quests and get rewards in return and of course, to fight against an overwhelming amount of enemies that you will encounter along the way.

Take note that your journey is not always about battle. Sometimes, it requires strategy and perfect timing. The dwarves area for an instance, will not require you to kill the them but to hide and prevent yourself from being caught. Once you got caught, you have no other option but to start again back from the very beginning which made the game a little bit frustrating. Bosses will also be encountered in selected areas so better be cautious. Jacob, by the way, is not armed with any weapon other than his Yo-Yo which is really an interesting approach that made this game light and child-friendly. Despite of the game’s apparent simplicity, Tree House Quest still offers a decent amount of challenge. With its well-polished gameplay, nostalgic animation, well-fitting sounds and a pinch of humor, Tree House Quest is indeed a game worth playing with! Good luck and have fun!

A background could have made the game a lot more alive and engaging but despite the missing details, Get On Top is still entertaining enough to be enjoyed. Some features that we hope to be added aside from the dynamically-changing background are interactive scorecharts, customization option and possibly and level by level game campaign.
