Nice game! Had a D&D feel to it. Even had mindflayers! I would say what could be better, but I think they covered it, and then some, with Gurk II. I swear it alters time or something. Had no idea I just spent 2 hours "gurking out." I have to play Gurk II now!
A good game in the vein of the original Dragon Warrior on NES. However, it is a little too short with no storyline to follow; else it would have gotten 4 stars from me. I definitely want to buy both sequels when I am able, given that they are both under two dollars.
Considering to buy Gurk II and III The random encounters were spaced nicely and could be challenging. Liked the minimalistic/8-bit motif. The parts I didn't like include that it had no storyline (and no ending) and that it was short. But it was gratis, adfree, and the memory and disk space usage was miniscule, which are always plusses.
Cool! I dont know why but this game is addicting, I dont want to stop playing it! The only thing that it is missing is some 8-bit sounds and music. Other than that the game is great and I recommend it! Now I just have to buy 2 and 3!
Simple and great A free app with no ads and no requirements? It never lags or loads, the only thing I would change is the UI a tiny bit, but even still I thoroughly enjoyed the game to the end.
Very good, only around 90kb Amazing game, very fun and addictive but a bit fiddly. I love that their are No Ads!
More RPGs on Android plox. Pretty decent old-school RPG with tactical turn-based combat. Well made for its time (it's a port of an old Nokia game), quite fun for fans of the genre but not very challenging. Would be delighted to see more such games on Android, they seem to be a bit of a rarity even though it works so well - for this reason, and for the fact it's a really cool game that is 100% free, I'm handing out a 5.
Great game! Could have balanced the overabundance of gold I earned. Plus it was pointless to buy anything without the shop carrying higher level goods to level up my armor. It was super fun though so good score!
Simply Fun If you liked old skool RPGs then you will like Gurk. It is simple and can turn into a grind at times. The story is non existent so you basically just explore and find treasure. I see potential and I am looking forward to playing the sequels.
fun little strategy RPG The game has pretty good game play. The strategy in it makes it fun. I just wish their were an easier way to get gold so you could upgrade your weapons & armor faster to keep up with the monsters you encounter in the dungeons. Only reason i gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
Fun game It's free and fun to play. Great game to kill time. The only problem I have is that there is no ending but you can't complain much for a free game.
The Gurk series is the best! I love these games SO MUCH. They are simple, old-school RPGs that improve through the series. The battle system is a little clunky in the first game, but it's very reminiscent of old console RPGs like FF1. (At least attacks aren't "ineffective! :P) Gurk 1 doesn't have much of a plot, but it's also FREE, and it scratches my RPG itch with something I can pick up and put down whenever.
Beautifully Old School This game brings me back to some of my fondest gaming days when I played Ultima IV for days on end. The game play is smooth, meaningful, and over-all addictive (in a good way). I will be getting the sequels...
Simply brilliant! Reminds me of the old TSR 386 PC RPG's Loving the simple yet engrossing old school adventure, I'm even amazed at how much game we have for such little required space! (I only wish Gurk II was updated to run full screen on HD screens like Gurk I)
A good take on the classic RPG This game is an awesome throw back to the old NES days! It has a good battle system, a non-rigged Random Encounter Rate and I'm more than willing in throwing in the extra bucks for the sequels!
Actually Very decent. I actually expected it to be awful and honestly downloaded it to laugh at it, thinking the reviews can't be serious. I am a fan of the old gen RPGs and these Gurk games do them justice, instead of making fun of them. This one would get 5 stars but loses 1 for being too easy and short and lack of monster variation. Not a problem in Gurk 2, which I bought after reading it was longer(this is good but 2 is way better). Now that I see 3, I will buy that too once I reup my Google Play credit.
A truly fun game Classic 8-bit RPG fun. Good maps and good battles if a little simple. Keep up the good work
Awesome I was searching everywhere for a good RPG I got gurk 2 n 3 but I used a free store app sorry don't hate me, I won't name the app I used, because it would stop you from getting purchases I just have no money, but gurk 2 n 3 in the pics look improved a lot I haven't tried them yet, but Ik I'll like them, on gurk 3 people list a lag problem, but I usually don't get the problems people list, so I can't wait to try it, forgot to say, you guys should really make a gurk online,that would be amazing, price $3sugest
Epic Game Bitchez Really gud I love the concept and style . it's very quick and loads fast and has multiple areas. I highly recommend this awesome game
Very fun Super fun retro styled game; delightfully corny and guilt free with barely an ad in sight and no special permissions required. Ideal fun anytime anywhere.
solid game The game world is a bit small, the combat can be a bit easy (I actually get annoyed at how little damage can be done to my knight... a thrill though when he beat 20 goblins as my lone living char.), it's unclear to me whether the game ends, way too few encounters to be interesting after clearing the last dungeon enemies too weak then anyway. GOOD GAME, though. Time-killer.
Old school in a bad way Horrible UI, no story, no sound, minimal atmosphere, battles quickly get easy and boring. Art is ok. Solid gameplay mechanics, if uninspired, so it's still fun. It's free and tiny so if you're new to RPGs it's worth a play.
Simple yet Sweet! I'd like to say thank you to the makers of Gurk! Never have 8 bits brought me so many hours of entertainment! I plan to buy 2 & 3 as I complete them. With a grand total of $3.05 for all 3 games I feel like I'm robbing you guys! And with the way I play I'll probably get at least 100 hours of fun out of them, that's 3.05 cents per hour. I've spent much more on much worse games. I love your "first time's free" marketing (Gurk 1 is free) and the absence of ads really makes you true gentlemen. Much respect!! :)
Really boring This game was cool at first but it's extremely repetitive and makes me lose my mind. It's not even hard it's only difficult because every step you take has a chance of being a battle so you're gonna lose a bit more and more health until you lose. I made it to the dragon lair and I give up. The constant random battles that you cannot run away and have to deal with and every fight lasts like 2 minutes makes this game the most boring and frustrating I've ever played. Not buying other gurks, bad.
Amazingly fun game I downloaded not expecting much, but I was wrong. Behind the 8-bit graphics and clunky interface is a beautiful game with clever combat and thrilling dungeons. I beat the final boss at level 10 in four hours, and I still have dungeons to raid. I will definitely be picking up Gurk II and Gurk III.
Really Good Nice to find a nice RPG for free that doesn't come with in-game purchase rubbish. So yeah worth a look at least, I thought it was fun after a shaky start and I found myself playing for sometime longer than I expected.
Quick, Easy Fun Nails its target era of RPGs perfectly. Fun, simple, straightforward, perfect for lunch breaks or all-night adventuring.
Great game Tiny file size, free and very engrossing. It is short and some buttons are badly positioned but I loved it.
Really awesome RPG I really like it cuz its a cool rpg but i can barley find any good loot only at the shop i buy some stuff for my guys so thats why i rated 4 stars if you make the loot drop chances higher i will rate 5 stars
Fun to play and just like old school RPG turn based systems. Awesome Love the game play and the next 2 are sweet too.
neat and sweet reach level 12 and u can beat the game. so short and sweet. i need more. MORE! level up ! :-)
Great game design This game is a pure game design. Graphics and music are really basic but game design alone makes the game truly shine. Great work. I really hope that the man who made this will make more great games.
great old school rpg Very nice, fun, not very long. Very well balanced. I would like to have more info, such as exp to next level
Unplayable The message "Gruk 2 is available" covers the button at the bottom. How can I play this? Works now in one plus.
Back to my youth Fantastic return of the game I loved as a kid. Would appreciate a better defined map on my tablet (my Galaxy Ace 2 shows a better map than my 2013 Nexus). Still love it though!
Yes! Why did I have to scroll my games to find it again. Wanted to show it to my kid, give hime the same joy. Main screen frozen, though. Galaxy S5. Confident that it will be fixed, though. ;)
Love it I love old school rpgs and this takes the cake, can't wait to get the other gurks!
Good but short Loved everything but the shortness had it beat in less than a day other than that reminded me of the good days
Fun, Old School, No Replay value Played it, beat it, loved it, but there's no reason to play it again. Sadly.
Imaginative This is without question one of the simplistic games I have ever played. So simplistic that I found myself giving the characters personalities as well as imagining what happened in their battles. It forced me to make a story for MYSELF ultimately making this game a different experience for everyone. This game helped me find my child like wonder for games that I haven't had in a long time, and for that I thank you. The adventures of Sir Rugnar, Feraldan, and Gorlok will always be close to my heart.
