One of the most popular game 2D side-scrolling game out there is called Maplestory. The game created in South Korea by Wizet but published by Nexon.
Maplestory is probably one of the most popular game on Nexon and is one of the oldest games that Nexon published that is still running. It has about 400,000 to 500,000 players on daily, that’s a lot if you ask me.
The character sprites are anime-based and it looks pretty cute. There are variety of cash items in the cash shop so you can customize your character any way you like. The max level is 200 and there are about 21 classes in the game and most likely, it will be increasing in the future.
With the new big bang patch, leveling has been quite easier. Leveling used to take me about a month to get to level 50 but now it takes about 2 days to get to level 50, that’s pretty insane.
The bad thing about this game is that the new PVP system is pretty bad if you ask me, furthermore after hitting level 120 in the game there is pretty much nothing else to do besides hanging out in town, grinding or boss hunting.
Check out the gameplay if you are unsure about trying this game or not.
