It was on my Steam wish list for a long time which makes no sense because the game is free to play, it’s an MMORPG developed and published by IMC Games, a korean company, the game is 2D isometric with unique art style, it looks like anime cartoon but without the bright colors.
The game is a grinding game like many Asian MMOs, and that’s fine if you like this kind of games, there are quests and a world to explore but the main way to level is to grind mobs and the game makes this fun, at least for the first levels.
You start the game buy choosing a team name, it should be unique and you should be careful when and where you do that, i picked a new server which provide exp buff to help new players level faster since the game have more than 240 levels, but i wanted to experience the normal server.
I thought i’ll just start a new team in a different server, but i could not, because i already have one, and i can’t delete the one i have, i need to send a ticket for the support team to delete my team.
Anyway, when you create a team you’ll see a screen of a lodge, here you can create a character and choose one of five classes, each class will have many advancement which are different classes, and each provide more abilities.
The game starts with some noise, i mean many things in the screen asks for your attention, it’s not confusing but i wish MMOs learn from Blizzard, WoW first hour makes it easy for a new player to understand the game, it starts with one quest, one yellow exclamation mark, nothing else asks for your attention.
Now comes the fun part, first the controls are mostly your keyboard, the arrow keys for movement, the letters keys for your abilities, the mouse is not needed for most of the time, which is something i love so much, it feels natural to me, even some abilities need targeting and you can do that with the keyboard, the developer did great work here.
The world feels small so far and because i’m leveling in a new server i gain so many levels quickly, the mobs are not dangerous, most die by one shot, the bosses need a little more work.
That’s all i have for now, next post i’ll write about other features and system.
