It is extremely hard to find games that play similar to ‘Maplestory’, a side-scrolling platformer MMORPG that has won the hearts of many worldwide. Though the game managed to inspire a lot of clones during its heyday, none of these clones managed to stand the test of time with the player base eventually dropping out leading to dead servers. However, there are a few hidden gems here and there that play almost similar to ‘Maplestory’. So, here is the list of video games similar to ‘Maplestory’ that are our recommendations. You can play these games like ‘Maplestory’ on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Android, mac or even online.
13. SoulSaver Online (2012)
‘SoulSaver Online’ is a game that has received a lot of backlash from the community due to its pay to win mechanics but the game is quite good at its core. The story does feel a bit lacking at times but the combat mechanics are quite fluid and you will find yourself getting hang of the game quite easily. Some of the grinds are a bit too tedious, so if you are a developer and reading this then please acknowledge the issue of tedious boring grinds in MMORPGs. They are not fun at all and introduce a lot of repetitiveness to the game.
12. Peria Chronicles (TBA)
‘Peria Chronicles’ is an upcoming MMORPG where the entire world will be created and generated by players. It is possible for one to terraform the entire map and create new structures out of it. You can raise the land up or lower it down according to your wishes, just make sure your neighbor is not to perturbed by it, otherwise you might find yourself in a spot of trouble. Players will be able to unlock and craft a variety of tools that will help them create specific structures such as waterfalls and lakes. You can build a network of underground tunnels as well if you choose and we already that that will be the first thing that we are going to do once the game goes live. A demo is presently playable but does not contain any PvP mechanisms but we can expect that to be a part of the game once the full servers go live.
