Sherwood Dungeon offers a great fantasy experience and is playable within your browser making it a popular alternative to RuneScape. Best of all you can start playing Sherwood Dungeon immediately without an account which allows you to easily try out this browser MMORPG before fiddling around with the signup process.


At first glance the game is a very simple fantasy MMORPG but there is a good amount of depth for those interested in exploring deeper. Uniquely the game uses an action orientated battle system that gives you more control over your decisions in battle.

Sherwood Dungeon focuses on providing a simple online MMORPG and gets rid of plenty of restrictions that other games place on its player base. This includes lack of death penalties, very flexible class options and simple combat. All of these features make it attractive as a casual experience for gamers not interested in committing a large amount of time to an online game.

Sherwood Dungeon may be just a simple online game but it is definitely not lacking in content with everything that you would expect from a MMORPG with hundreds of dungeon levels to explore for treasure, thousands of maps, over a million players and clan support.


Most of your time in Sherwood Dungeon will be spent searching through the dungeons for epic loot which you can either equip yourself or trade with merchants. The game allows you to either equip a sword and shield or go all out and equip two mighty weapons. You can also enhance your weapons with runes if you can find them while exploring the various dungeons.

Sherwood Dungeon is one of the very best alternatives to RuneScape and one of the few good online MMORPGs available. The amount of content you can access for free is simply amazing and as far as casual MMORPG experiences go this one is definitely at the top of the list and since you can start playing without even opening account there is no excuse not to try the game out.


  • Free to play browser based MMORPG.
  • Large fantasy world with great variety of locations and monsters.
  • Loot items or craft powerful magical items with runes.
  • Fantastic graphics (for a browser game).
  • Real time combat lets you control the battle flow.

    @Anyone, I agree with people that don’t speak English but TQA? I’m in that clan… Also, great game. 8/10, has it’s flaws, but it’s great! I just don’t like how you have to have real money to buy a pet/mount. Otherwise, mostly it’s free otherwise (some things may need features, like publishing a clan room). It’s a great game and the defeating Bane the black dragon comes quickly. Not too much time needs to be invested in order to pretty much finish the main quests, and that leaves you to doing what you’d like to do.
