Maplestory is a immensely popular, South Korean massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
Millions of people play this 2D, side-scrolling, free-to-play game every day. Playing is free, but some features and enhancements are available for a fee.
In the game, players go through MapleWorld, a universe filled with monsters. As you play and gain experience, you develop more strengths. You can also talk to other people, trade, band together and play mini-games. Lots of people gang up to hunt monsters together, making it a social happening. So now you can play this on your iphone or ipad as well! (I recommend using a tablet) In the iphone version, MapleStory Thief edition you get to be either a thief or an assassin. (I always wanted to be an assassin)
Once you’ve picked a character you go off into MapleWorld and it’s pretty much the same as the online version, just lacks the interaction, which, to me, seemed the whole point!
Then again: as it’s temporarily free, this game’s a real (dare I say it?) steal….
