RefQuest game, what is it?

RefQuest will test your referencing knowledge with a variety of randomised puzzle types and reference examples. With your handy sword and a handful of lives, you will need to defeat a series of increasingly difficult monsters that will test your understanding of referencing! With each level the number of monsters and complexity of the references increases. Keep an eye on the timer and remember to use your spellbook to assist you in your quest to save referencing!
