This is a cute side-scrolling MMO. The graphics have held up well due to a cohesive style. It may appear like an endless grinder, and in a way it is, but there is much more to it than first meets the eye.

Its free to play and a long standing part of our MMO culture. It’s worth play just to understand how a side-scrolling MMO works.
