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!

Actually, money making is simple

@Brae

At first I would have agreed with you, but after I tried out the 'Drop Rate' stat I found out that the author actually made making money extremely easy. Just stack the drop rate stat on everything you can, as soon as you can. You won't notice a huge difference between +0 and +5 drop rate, but the stat itself increases the drop rate of treasure chests and gold A LOT. I'm level 12 with about +35 drop rate now, and all I have to do is run the first area, green/yellow slimes and the lvl 3 wolves, and I'll have a full inventory worth about 1k-2k gold.

As for grinding, well, it IS quite similar to Diablo, and Diablo was a grind as well. Just pump up a lot of Agility to increase your defense, this will dramatically increase your survivability. Damage? Health? Crit Rate? None of those matter if, like you said, you get 1 hit-ko. Defense/Damage is the best stat build here. Go 3:2 or 4:1 from the start, and you'll be fine.

Great gameplay. Medicore planning.

The subject line above says it all. This submission was clearly created by a skilled programmer with an affinity for classic, Diablo-style RPGs. The gameplay is smooth and superb, as you navigate your character through a 3D world, running, jumping, and slashing various enemies into submission, putting numerous items and special attacks to use.

Where the game falls short is planning. The game is excellently programmed, but really poorly designed. After getting an hour or two into the game, you reach a point where you simply can't continue with the storyline unless you grind your way to an insanely higher level. You've done all of the quests provided to you. You've bought the best items you can afford. You're ready to get on with the game. But you can't. Because the next area you have to go to has enemies that kill you in one hit. So you sit around killing hundreds of the same enemy over and over again. With each level you gain, you require exponentially more experience points, slowing your progress. Plus, to encourage you to move along, with each level you gain, you get progressively less experience points from the easier enemies you've been grinding against. So you get squeezed on both ends. But you still can't get on with the game because the enemies in the next area over still kill you in one hit. So you spend four times as long as it took you to gain your last level doing it again. And again. And again.

Maybe if you could buy better items, you'd have an easier time. But good items cost you hundreds, even thousands of those precious coins, and the only way to get these coins is to...you guessed it...grind for them. Randomly, a dead enemy might drop a whopping 11-30 coins, or something you can sell for a piddly sum.

But whatever you do, don't get frustrated, bored, and try your hand at a harder area. Because if you die, you lose a chunk of money and a chunk of experience points, setting you way back. And if you get hurt, the only way to recover your health is to buy healing potions, which cost money, which means more grinding.

Piles of potential, but the design needs a good look. The numbers need tweaking, or there need to be more intermediate activities to keep you busy while you advance, or there needs to be a smoother difficulty gradient. Something to make the game more of a game and less of a grind.

Nice Rpg with little flaws

The game itself is nice, but if you go to a different location, you usually get you butt kicked really hard.
Also, the lack of healing options or the ridiculous prices at the shop ( i never had enough money to buy a new gear once i leveld up).
Another Point is that the leveling is kinda mean, because you mostly need att, OR defence, because otherwise you need to spend a WHOLE lot of time to kill enemies below you without getting hurt to bad.
I played till level 11 or 12 and still, most slightly enhanced enemies killed me in no time.
But still its a very nice game that covers many aspects of a mmo-rpg in a great format. Also loved the design.
Good Luck on future works!
