Arcuz is an Action Role Play Game (Like Zelda or Diablo). You fight with the monsters, train your hero, learn skills, search better weapons and equipments, compose new items using your creativity...and more! Don't be addicted! You got 18 different maps to discover, 25 quests to accomplish, 21 battle skills to learn, more than 10 types of monsters to kill, more than 100 weapons and gears to choose, and unlimited possibility of composition...Those are not all. We translated this game into 7 languages so half of the whole world can enjoy it! Hope Arcuz could bring you a lot of fun!

WASD: Move
J: Attack/Talk with NPC/Accept
K: Jump/Cancel
I&L: Activate Battle Skill. You can put 4 battle skills on the skill slots on the bottom of the game screen and press I/L to use the skills. You level up and add ability point to one of your skills. Then you click one of the skills on the SKILL panel and put it on the skill slot. You can only put active skills to the skill slots (not passive skills).
1/2/3: Use potions and town portal. Click the potions and scrolls in your inventory and put them on the potion slots on the bottom of the game screen. Then you can use the potions and scrolls by pressing key 1/2/3.
C/V/B/N/M/,/ESC: hotkeys for Char, Skill, Quest, Inventory, Map and Menu.

We haven't put a full version on Newgrounds only because there is a 10MB size limitation for flash uploading on Newgrounds, not for other reasons. Sorry guys.

We are using MochiGames API because we want our players be able to save and load the game on any computer. As flash can only perform local saving. This is a technical issue.

MochiCoins is an optional choice for those who lack time to play this game and want to level up quicker. Without paying a cent you can enjoy the game a lot. We developers have to earn our livings by making games.

Thanks to all of you, Nice NG players!

Its hackable..

I related this game previously to that being incredibly to similar to a game called FATE, by WildTangent. I still come back to this game and enjoy it though!

I returned this time with Cheat Engine to test its immunity. Sadly its easily possible to get endless skill points and cash.. totally throwing the game into boredomville :[

I still enjoyed it though!

awsome....

i did find one re-occouring bug... probly just me, but my secondary ring, and my sword kept on dissapearing even when i save...

heres my ex: saved, went and fought, whacked alot of enemies, came back, and my sword/ring wound up missing, although my character in the game still had a sword. :? but the game is rather cool, so im assuming that i either sold it (doubt it) or it just wore out durring a fight. still an EASILY addicting game which i rate 9/10!

A Great Game that can Improve

5/5, 9/10.
WARNING, MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS:
GRAPHICS:
Nice and sprite-y, though the final boss looks like something from Warcraft, the hornets look like something from RPG Maker, etc, etc. I can't judge graphics on a game intended to look a certain way.
10/10
MUSIC:
Good, but annoying at times. I muted it in favor of other music.
7/10
GAMEPLAY:
This is where the biggest part comes in.
The gameplay was spectacular. Even if Diablo makes this look like small crap, Diablo is way bigger in file size :) People like to complain about the difficulty, and I seriously don't see it. It took a week of on and off playing to beat the full version of the game on Funnaut. I got a free Tommy's Wand, but I didn't know how to compose, and ended up using a level 4 composition on a weapon WITH NO PREVIOUS COMPOSITIONS ON IT.
Please make that more prominent, because it can be frustrating. Other than that, I have NEVER lost any items in a melt-down of the system. The chest system is pretty good as well. You've got wooden, blue, and gold chests [From what I've seen]. Gold Chests can surpass things up to 10 levels higher than it. I had a +3 gold-background Champion Shield, and it's way superior block chance [41%, level 4], and the +30% Defense chance [sometimes defense is misspelled] made it a better choice than a shield from Chung.
Speaking of Chung, he's like Gheed, but you can select what you want. He offers THE BEST stuff in the game, because the enchantments on it DON'T USE COMPOSITION SLOTS. Buy his stuff for the superior choice.
The difficulty is alright. It's a good game in that it takes a long time to beat, unlike other games. At times, the difficulty was frustrating. When I was a noob, I couldn't beat the North Forest quest, let alone set foot in it. However, town-portalling the end zone two zones above the entrance to South Mountain in Arcuz Plains and the Valley of Rest [Final, screen before the boss] helps. Also, the caves of Gino Mountain provide four good chambers to the right for lesser level trainers, and for the daring, red slimes to the left. Overall, the game is harder in the beginning, really easy at the end.
THE FINAL BOSS:
The Double-headed [Dual-head] Giant was a massive pain to defeat. At first, you have to kill all of the enemies. Bladestorm is ideal for this. While he's running around, hit him after his club shoots lines of icicles out of it, or he does an ice AOE around him while berserked [with the ability, not the potion]. After that hit, you WILL DO NORMAL DAMAGE while he is stunned. He will resume his attacks after a while.
Second Stage:
Insanely hard. He speeds up and summons a number of level 35 poison ghosts to stop you. Use double-whirlwind to throw them off whenever possible with berserk active again. His meteor shower is nearly impossible to dodge, and it isn't worth taking the hits to stop him by attacking him a few times. Jump VERY RAPIDLY to avoid him, and don't bump against trees or the boundaries of the area, because that's death. I brought at least 20 Full Rejuvenations and 4 Large Resurrection potions to the fight, as well as Level 3 Berserk, Level 3 Holy Light, etc. Use Bladestorm on him when he's near doing the combo and you should land some good hits on him if you time it right. If you don't use axes, then you seriously suck, because the weight is nothing compared to the damage. Bladestorm is probably the best option in the final moves anyways, because you can control a whirling maelstrom of death which constantly hits elemental damage, and critical hits if you upped luck. Good luck. The balance was perfect, though quest bosses SUCK.
TIPS FOR NOOBS:
-Farm in end zones.
-Up luck and item drop %.
-Train in mentioned areas
-Up axes and +5 attributes
REPLAYABILITY:
Not intense enough to replay. More quests required. After I beat the boss, I felt relieved and stopped. I'd love to unlock the other achievements, but I'm too lazy. So far, I lack 50 gold chests [go figure, I only found 2], 10000 compositions [Not enough blessing stones, stranger], 999 combo, and the two secret ones
4/10
Make the bosses better
