MapleStory is a free-to-play 2D Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing game developed by Wizet and published by Nexon. It is available for Microsoft Windows only.
MapleStory takes the players to the fictional Maple World where the players must try to stop the resurrection of the evil Black Mage and stop his rise to power.
In MapleStory, players get to create multiple characters which they get to control while travelling and solving quests in various worlds. These characters are world dependent and can only be accessed in their respective worlds. Each of these characters must be from one of five classes (Warrior, Bowmen, Magician, Thief and Pirate). After choosing and developing a particular class, the players can also choose from unlocked classes which can only accessed after the players have progressed to a certain level in the game.
The world area in Maple World consists of three continents with each continent having its respective cities. MapleStory has an in-game store where the players can buy pets, cosmetics and other items for their characters using real money. Players can join or create guilds which further help in the development of the players’ characters.
