Games like Maplestory 7: laTale

The last of our games like Maplestory, this is yet another fantasy-style 2D side-scrolling adventure which shows clear inspiration from Maplestory.  the best part of this game is the fact that it has so much character customisation. you’re basically in control of absolutely every part of your character. It also has PvP, crafting, item collection and tons of different abilities and skills.

Wind Slayer 2 is your standard 2D side-scrolling MMORPG and players of MapleStory will quickly recognise its art and interface style.

The game features six classes to explore with, complete quests and battle other players in the Arena. The best feature of Wind Slayer 2 is the experience rate which I consider to be one of the fastest of any MMORPG so you do feel constantly rewarded and satisfied.

Overall the game suffers from a small-medium playerbase that can feel you leaving lonely depending on your timezone, the repetitive quest styles and poor controls can also occasionally get tiring.
