I am all about retro, pixelated RPGs and Crusaders Quest fits the bill perfectly. The latest game launched by Toast is extremely addictive and fun and I am here to help you get the most out of it by sharing with you a complete set of Crusaders Quests cheats, tips and tricks that will create the ultimate strategy guide for beginner and advanced players.

Because fighting for the Goddess and defeating all the enemies in the multitude of stages is extremely difficult, while the game itself is pretty complex, I have decided to come help you understand how the game works and what to do to win all stages without a problem. So read on for our Crusaders Quest tips and cheats!

1. Notice the quests
Nobody says anything about them, but when you are in town, you can get quests – they appear as character icons on the right side of the screen. Tap them, check them out and complete them (usually by simply going through the Adventure mode) and grab some nice rewards.

2. Be active during the fights
Although fighting is pretty much automatic in the game, you still have to control the shields and special attacks and use a bit of strategy in order to win the battles. Be active and smart: try to group the attacks based on the enemies you are facing and use the special attack buttons in such a way that you create chains of two or three similar attack types. Learn how each attack works – some are only useful in melee combat, some are ranged, some affect a specific area and make sure you never waste a special attack. Finally, don’t forget about the Goddess following you – use her special abilities when most needed and always make sure that you have at least one use left for the boss battle – although I usually try to keep them all for the final battle!

3. Claim your mailbox rewards
For various things that you do in your game, you will receive rewards – but many of them won’t be automatically claimed. Instead, they will go to your mailbox and you have 30 days to claim them. Make sure that you check your mailbox regularly and claim those rewards ASAP.

4. Promote your Heroes
As soon as your heroes reach the maximum level of their rank, they can be promoted. Each promotion increases their stats and allows them to level up even further. So try to promote them as soon as they max out their level to have better heroes. You need Honor to do so, and honor is pretty difficult to get – but if you have a lot of active friends, they can gift it to you and you will have to problem keeping your heroes always upgraded.

5. Train your heroes
After each promotion, you can train your heroes using bread (which is made in the Bakery or obtained during questing). This is extremely expensive, but it can increase your skills quite a bit so make sure that when you train your heroes, you use the maximum number of bread (you can only train them once per ranking).

6. Bring your friends into battle
On many occasions, your friends will have leaders that are better than the heroes you own, so it makes a lot of sense to bring them into battles – especially the more difficult ones. It’s true that you only level up two of your heroes following this method, but you can easily cruise through the quests like this and unlock the rewards, then replay them with your heroes over and over again to level them up and be under no pressure.

7. Grind on levels
You actually should replay all stages as often as possible to make sure that you have enough coins and strong heroes to keep on going in the later stages. And the good thing is that you can always be sure that you will beat these stages because you have already done so. It’s a win-win situation.

8. Upgrade your weapons
The game actually calls this converting, and you should do it as soon as you get a weapon (or a better weapon) for your heroes.

9. Always use the best set of heroes
As you complete stages, you will unlock more and more heroes and you should always use the best ones available in battles. Test them all out, see which do better than others (the weapons that you have matter a lot too) and use those in battle. Don’t hesitate to use the practice mode to see how things go and which heroes to bring into battle.

10. Main events and quests
If you really want to increase your chances at winning the game and getting the most out of it, then you should go to the Colosseum and explore the Dungeons. Check out the world events and try to get as far as possible because that’s where the real rewards at. Grind on the completed levels to level up your heroes and get money for the upgrades and complete these special events for some really rare and awesome Heroes!

  1. This game review is quite interesting and it makes me think that crusaders quest is addictive to play. After reading your reviews, I immediately watch the game trailers and the only words that came out from my mouth is simply…. “OMG! an 8-BIT???” Personally, I am not really interested to any games that are still in 8-bit graphics. It’s too old school for me. But After downloading and giving a try to play this game, the last thing that I know is that I’m already into it, or should I say… “I’m starting to play it more and more.”

    I wish that you will post more game guides or some review for other features of the game. Thanks a lot!!!

  2. Good tips! I’m a little confused, though, by #9. If You always use your best heroes, how would you ever level up the rest of them?

  3. Quite Fun!! I already watched some game trailers and game play about this game. I love the characters, they’re all girls and they look so cute. But I felt sad about the graphics, It’s too pixelated. I suggest to enhance the graphics to make it perfect. LOL! But even though it has a low graphics, I’ll give it a try.

  4. This game has a good game play. What I hate most in this game is the graphics. I feel like I’m playing Mario brothers in Play station way back ’97 ( i was seven years that time when console games are on high mode). The game is in pixel. I hope that they will improve the graphics one day. in this regard, I will give this game 5/10

  5. I’ve been hearing this game from a friend! though i don’t like the graphics its a bit too old compared to the 3D graphics that is emerging on most games, still a part of this catches my attention. i like how they put it into RPG genre and the PVP battle.

  6. Can anyone list the amount of honor needed to protmote heroes? I have some heroes that can be promoted, but I want to save up for Rank6 Leon of Light.

    • 1 to 2: 50 honor
      2 to 3: 200 honor
      3 to 4: 460 honor
      4 to 5: 920 honor
      5 to 6: 1840 honor (cmiiw)

      You can obtain honors from selling heroes. But! Max their levels before selling them because 1) u get 1 jewel for every maxed hero, and 2) maxed hero gives more honor.. one star heroes are especially good since their cap is only 10.

      You might also want to raise 1 or 2 substitute hero when one of your main hero is maxed out and also for variation.

      Ps. Christmas heroes are freaking OP.

  7. I see a lot of complaints about the graphics, but they are part of what make it so awesome for me. I love retro graphics, esp. When they are done so well!!

    • You sell them in the bottom button “return” in heroes menu. They will give you homer back… The bigger rank and level, bigger honor you get!

      Btw, advancing a lot in the quest with your beat team, than play a hard advanced level with your best hero and 2 “noobs”, it’s the best way and fastest to level up and get honor that I found…
      Now I’m playing with a nurspy rank 5 lvl50, in hard mode lvl 2-1; the other lvl 1 heroes die soon, but after finish the stage, is lvl 11 for each! Cost 5 meets, but givi you 2 diamonds if the heroes are rank 1! You can refill your meets 2 times!

  8. It’s actually a 16-bit game. Anywho this game is amazing, I spend all of my free time on it. I hope everyone else who plays enjoys it as much as I do!

  9. There is kne problem though. I dislike how you can’t buy watever hero you want, you just get a random one. Personally I think that I lucked out on my one free premium contract. I got the space swordsman and he promoted into Susanu (look him up in the tome), and I just promoted him to warrior Susanu!

  10. I’ve promoted several priests from rank 1 to 4 and about 80% of the time i get that Woompa character. I absolutely HATE thus character. Sure the buffs are bice but i really want mew. Is there an easier way to obtain her??

  11. Get ready to finish already completed levels again and again and again and…AGAIN, and one more time. Spend lot of time to level up ur heroes, promote and levelup again, again promote and again lvlup, collect some high level bread or use backery and wait 24 hours for 2-3 pieces. And when you’ll stuck on lvl around 4-16 with 4* heroes, because you are not lucky to get good enough characters, be ready to do the same things again and AGAIN…
    Or just spend your money. Get bored after 2 days of playing.
    PS: Developers – “OMG who the f***k cares about game balance, everybody wants to finish the same levels 100 or 1000 times…”
