Dad Quest is a 2D Platformer RPG where you play the role of a newly trained Dad. Now, a Dad is much more of a title than it sounds. It is given to any who love children and they can be either male or female and come in all shapes and sizes. At the start, you are given a child to help make your way through the Dad Training Course. This doesn’t mean that you will have to to do much to take care of them. In this world, you take your child on adventures and defeat enemies by swinging them around like a sword or by throwing him at your foes. There is also no need to worry about the child as they are completely impervious to pain and actually find being flung through the air like a football enjoyable. Defeating foes with your kid will actually make them stronger and a much more effective weapon as they gain skills and abilities as they increase in strength. Eventually, your child could become the equivalent of a shuriken flying through the air or be swung around with the force of a hammer. It all depends as to how you think your child can be made into an effective weapon.
After your training, you leave the facility to do whatever good you can and become the Best Dad. The game also has a very Metroidvania feel to it, as there are several locations that cannot be reached until your Dad has found the needed skill or item to progress. Platforming in Dad Quest is very satisfying as the controls are very tight which also makes combat a lot of fun. This makes the game very linear and clear as to where you can to go. Along your journey, you will meet many other comedic characters whom you can perform side-quests and missions for to gain more strength or items to make yourself or your child stronger. It is a rough world out there for a Dad, but someone has to do it.
