The kingdom of Arkadia has long flourished under the rule of old king Fedoor, but as the aged king's rule comes to a close, he needs a worthy successor. A tournament has been opened to all adventurers to see who can best manage the realm's dangerous Loonies and lay claim to the throne. The race for the rule of Arkadia is fierce, and the champions will try to trip each other up at every turn. Whoever can best navigate their competition and the realms inhabited by these crazy creatures will win the crown!
In Loony Quest, players try to earn as much experience as they can by completing missions and quests. On their own transparent screen, each player has 30 seconds to draw a path navigating each level's obstacles and their opponent's traps. When the time is up, each player's screen is placed on top of the game board, and the drawings are evaluated to see how close each Champion has gotten to Fedoor's throne!
Look Out for the Loonies!
Each of Arkadia's seven realms is fraught with perilous pitfalls and crazy creatures, and the kingdom's champions must use all their wit and speed to make their way through each world to take on a big bad boss. Chart a safe course through the crowds of Loonies and try to pick up a few bonuses or finish off a side quest for extra experience as you make your way to the mission's goal and take another step toward the crown!
To complete missions and quests, players will need to draw lines to connect items and locations, encircle objects, and draw dots to stop the Loonies. Your mission may simply be that you must safely zig and zag your way from one end of the level to the other, but you might be able to score additional experience if you can successfully draw dots that land on the Loonies. Perhaps you should venture a bit off the beaten path and connect a key to its corresponding cage to score some additional experience. Beating a boss may require you to draw a ring around a torch and then chart a path to a scattered array of bomb fuses waiting to be lit!
Tread lightly as you make your way through the levels, however, as one wrong move can set your champion back as they try to secure the throne. If your line takes a turn into a crowd of Loonies or sends your champion careening into a wall, you'll lose some of that experience you've fought so hard to accrue! Each level has unique missions and extra goals, but your every success relies on how well your drawing lines up with the level when time runs out!
Pranks and Penalties
There are worse fates than a little loss of experience for those who just run willy nilly through the land of the Loonies. A champion may find themselves crossing paths with a particularly nasty spot and wind up on the receiving end of a Penalty. Penalties will make your ability to wend your way through the world that much more difficult by forcing you to draw with your elbow locked or one eye closed.
In the end, only one of the adventurers can become king of Arkadia and all of its realms. Fedoor, while a wise and fair king, is not above the use of tricks and traps to get ahead in the quest for his throne. Play some Pranks to throw a curveball at your competition! Drop a Banana on their drawing board for an extra navigational hazard, or make them balance a Mosquito token on their pen while they draw.
The quest to attain the throne of Arkadia is on, and only the adventurer who proves themselves to be the most experienced will become the steady hand that guides the kingdom! Look for Loony Quest at your local retailer soon!
