Games I’m playing/beta testing at the moment | July 11, 2005

Game playing/testing

Since for various medical reasons I haven’t been able to do any serious web development for a while, I got back into beta testing games.

Current beta tests

Flyff
Flyff, or Fly For Fun is a 3D MMORPG made by Korean company Aeonsoft. It´s billed as having “The first flying system in MMORPG”. It´s a lot of fun, however I do keep on getting disconnected at random times (and I’m not alone. To balance out this problem it is totally free (at least for the moment anyway). Well you get what you pay for so to speak.
Maple Story
Maple Story is a 2D MMORPG. I generally play it when I’m cut off from Flyff. Its totally free, currently in beta test. The game will make its money via a cash-shop system, whereby players will be able to purchase items for real-world cash.
Dark Throne
A browser-based MMORPG.

Other games I’m playing

Kings of Chaos
Browser-based MMORPG
Sudoku
Flash version of the logic puzzle Sudoku. This version is the best I’ve found, although there is only one puzzle a day.

  1. Did you manage to level past lvl 50?

  2. Nah, I stopped playing after a while. There’s that point in hack & slash based games where I start to lose interest.

    If there isn’t a compelling story, I just stop playing.

    Same thing sorta happened with Neverwinter Nights. Great stories in it etc, but it doesn’t last long enough.

    A good MMORPG has to find the balance between the great plot of a good Offline RPG, and the expansiveness of an online world.

    Maple Story just didn’t meet the requirements.

    P.S. I still have the wallpapers from Maple Story & the music fro Flyff though.
