Oz World is a social MMO with a small download size that was released in May 2012. The game has you exploring a variety of areas in the game world and communicating with others as you deck out your character in a variety of clothing options.

On top of the standard social features players can also participate in fishing, decorate their own house, get married to other players or move up the game ranking system.

The gameplay in Oz World is nothing ground breaking but it’s one of the few social MMOs out there and it comes with a very small download size which makes it very accessible to players. This also means that the graphics don’t push any boundaries so the game can work on low system requirements and even laptops without too much trouble.

Once you’ve downloaded the client you’ll be presented with a number of simple starter avatar options. From here you’ll get to start from one of the available starter areas (not that this has an impact on gameplay) and begin moving around the game world to meet people and chat with them. Players can also enter into a number of the stores around the place to buy items for their avatar.

Every new friendship needs some activity to break the ice so Oz World offers fishing as that activity. Each place that you visit has a number of these water areas and new users are given their own starter rod and some bait to get them started.

Fishing also serves as the main way to gain experience in the game world with each new level rewarding new rankings and items. Experience can also be gained through a number of the other activities in game but fishing definitely takes the crown as the fastest way.

Oz World has a dedicated community that really makes the Oz World experience although the numbers aren’t as big as other social games.

Summary:

  • Mixture of MMO and virtual world.
  • Dedicated community to meet.
  • Gain experience and level up for new items.
  • Go fishing!
  • Small download size with low system requirements.

    OzWorld was actually released way back in 2006 or so, now it relaunched. I remember it well. It didn’t have many people back then. I don’t know how things are now.
