MapleStory’s Big Bang
Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire.
Wait… wrong game!
Same premise, different game, basically a an ominous being has emerged and completely changed the game world. In this case the Black Mage, not a massive dragon.
If you haven’t played MapleStory before it’s a 2D side scroll/action/…platforming/…RPG …yea that works. Pretty much like every MMO you run around grinding mobs to get better equipment so you can grind stronger mobs with a group boss fights thrown into the mix. Oh yea, and it’s FREE to play.
For those that have played before, the game play is pretty much the same. The only noticeable differences is the world map has been reworked (for the better), leveling is much easier, and the drop rates has increased significantly.
I’ve only been on Victoria Island but I have to say I like the map set up so far. The Island is set up with a central node that branches out into each of the six cities so no matter what city you are in getting to any of the other cities is no more than seven map screens away. As opposed to the old circular map going from Kerning to Ellinia took 20 min.
Easier leveling is self explanatory but the drop rates are great! Health and mana potions are every where, which aids in leveling. Best of all low level gear is more available through drops, so instead of using up all of your hard earned meso on gear you focus on grinding.
Pretty much if your like me and too broke to get back into(or start) WoW, or to give Aion a try then Maple is a decent gaming fix.
