At Maple World, hunting and engaging in battles are not the only options you’ll have.
You can explore a totally new and unknown world you have never been to, put on beautiful clothes and gorgeous accessories, and even attract other users in the process. You may begin the journey to explore the world of unknown alone, but you may come out on the other end with numerous new friends through hunting and chatting. If you’re tired of hunting and competition, how about playing minigames with a friend for a change?
You’ll become a brave adventurer protecting the Maple World, and if you’re exhausted from all the intense battles and competition, you may one day build your own house at a quiet rural village, enjoying the life of a recluse who welcomes visitors.
At Maple Island, you will learn from the NPC’s simple hunting skills and basic control of the game to help you ease into the game. Then, you’ll board the ship that heads to Victoria Island, and that’s where your journey REALLY begins.
From Lith Harbor that welcomes you from a long journey from Maple Island, you’ll run into such fascinating towns as Henesys - the village of bowmen with comfy mushroom-shaped houses gathered together; Ellinia - the village of magicians with mysterious spells embedded between tall trees; Perion - the village of warriors with the fighting spirit typical of the Indians living in highlands; and Kerning City - the village of thieves that reminds you of the back alleys of dark cities.
You’ll be playing the game at Victoria Island where all these diverse and unique towns and fields coexist.
Here, you are going to be just a regular gamer hunting down monsters and protecting yourself in the process. You’ll be given 4 paths to choose from, 4 that will define your life in MapleStory: Warrior, Bowman, Thief, and Magician. Through leveling up and meeting some requirements, you’ll be able to make job advancements and nurture your character in your own, unique way.
Graphics- 8 The graphics are Anime-like, in other words Cartooned. This may look the game is a complete kinder garden as the monsters are cute and also your character is really well made. (With Facial Expressions, and every change of outfit is noticed) The graphics are 2D and are based in Scroll Screen (Like the Super Mario games)
Fun Factor- 8 This game can be really funny to some people and real boring to other people. If you got friends that changes the perspective, because you can hunt with them, party, and even do some mini games (Not Implemented yet). But when you first start things can be real boring. Take a Mage for example, their Mana Point Regen is so slow that you need around 5 minutes for it to regenerate fully. But when you are an High level it changes, Spells badly hurt your mp and it regens like there is no tomorrow.
Gameplay-9 The game’s controls are really easy to learn and master. They are not complicated and well explained.
As for the game, I think there are no major problems. You get to travel a lot and fight many monsters. The downside is that when you have a job (Warrior, Mage, Archer or Thief) you get to lose experience, which is extremely bad. But you get the fight monsters, pick up items, get friends. In other words you only contribute for monsters extinction just to gain some levels. Problem is that being in 2D there is no way you can avoid monsters without jumping over them, this leads to massive “kill-stealing” (other person finishes the monster you were killing thus getting some experience). Since there is no other way people tend to kill whatever is on their way even if other person is killing it.
