The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.6
WolfQuest 1.6.3 is a 3D game where you live the life of a wolf.
So, your goals will be those of a real wolf: find a mate, hunt for leaving, take care of your children, find shelter, etc.
At the beginning of the game you can customize the wolf you will impersonate, by choosing a hair color.
The game will be controlled by the keyboard and the mouse. The keyboard will let you control the movement of your character (moving back, forward, right, left), its actions (walk, trot, byte, jump, howl), and will let you access some program controls (Scent View, Map, Options, Help). The mouse will allow movements (by moving the mouse) and byte (left button).
WolfQuest will assign you goals, that you must complete in order to progress in the game.
Your wolf will be part of a pack with other computer controlled wolves and will have to learn to survive in the wild, facing the challenges of the environment.
The game will aid your wolf with a compass that will show it where to find elks for hunting or your objective.
