A new free-to-play MMORPG appeared on Steam today called Dungeon Fighter Online. It’s made by the same people who did Maple Story and follows a similar graphical and gameplay style: 2D sidescrolling action with an RPG leveling system.
What’s neat about Dungeon Fighter Online, though, is that it’s an old-school-esque beat-em-up, which is a genre that sorely needs more games.
You can choose from a number of classes to play, each open to both genders. Along with your standard melee and healing classes, the gun-toting ranged class stood out as being particularly neat and so when I played it for the first time this evening, that’s the class I chose.
My initial impression of the game is that it’s complex in the same way Maple Story and Eve is complex. One gets the feeling that even after hours and hours of playing and reading, one will still never learn it all.
Still, what I did play of the game was fun and I am looking forward to playing it again.
Give it a play this weekend and tell me your thoughts.
