Featured App Of The Day: Gurk, the 8-bit RPG


With all these high-end, octo-core phones being released with some of the most cutting edge and powerful GPU’s capable of advanced 3D graphics — this game wont require any of that. In fact, Gurk, the 8-bit RPG is merely a 100KB download of the most purest, old-school RPG fun.

Alright — I know most of you took one look at those screen shots and immediately ran for the hills. I did too. In fact, I laughed. But don’t let these cheesy 8-bit visuals fool you. Underneath this games pixeled exterior is a surprisingly deep and well thought out RPG. With over 24 dungeon levels, 44 different items and 23 unique monsters — seriously, you’re just going to have to try it for yourself.

After giving the game a chance, I couldn’t believe I was actually having fun with it. It may not look amazing, but it’s definitely worth a look. You can find Gurk, the 8-bit RPG for free in the Android Market right now.

  11. This is like the old Ultima games, back when they were stand-alone and not online. Great fun! I’ve been playing it often. I already have downloaded Gurk II, but haven’t started on there yet. I want to finish Gurk first!
