AdventureQuest Worlds (or AQWorlds) is a simple but extremely popular browser based MMORPG. The game is very similar to the original AdventureQuest except that the game takes place in a persistent game world rather than being a single player focused experience.
The game has dozens of servers online with millions of registered accounts, it’s also common to find tens of thousands of players online at any time. Some of these servers use restrictive chat which opens it up to younger gamers or players who simply want to play by themselves without interference from others.
At the start of your adventure you will have the option to select one of four available classes which includes mage, warrior, healer and rogue. Each of these classes comes with their own abilities (both active and passive) which you’ll unlock and improve over time. Eventually you can also upgrade into more advanced versions of your class for new skills. There are also plenty of visual options available that helps you create something in your likeness if you wish.
The game does have a story behind it but it doesn’t take itself too seriously and is mostly presented in a tongue and cheek fashion which again pushes it towards a casual audience. There is no pressure to follow the main storyline either as there are plenty of other activities available including events, PvP and achievement badges.
Best of all AQWorlds lets you teleport to nearly every single location in the game world which makes travel time nearly non-existent, a nice change from most other MMO games where you can quickly eat up hours of your time just travelling around.
If you want a casual experience that you can play within your browser it’s hard to look past AdventureQuest Worlds with its large community and easy to learn gameplay.
