You've managed to make it to lunchtime. It's been a rough day but you are free for an hour and you'd love to spend it laying the smack down on some monsters RPG-style. However, it's going to be hard to install World of Warcraft on your puny work PC, and besides, you simply don't have time. What do you do? Fire up a game of DragonFable.
This Flash-based online game brings Final Fantasy style monster battles to a casual audience. Once you've created your character and begin playing you'll acquire weapons, face legions of monsters, visit shops, and just about every cliche'd activity you can imagine (except no fishing yet, or fighting rats in a cellar). DragonFable is a prequel to Adventure Quest from the team Artix Entertainment. Like it's older sibling you will not find much of a storyline (yet) or complex gameplay. Instead you will find a lighthearted adventure consisting of: traveling a basic map, fighting a sequence of creatures (all beautifully animated), and reaping the reward at the end of the map - usually gold, experience, or a weapon.
If you are looking for a hard core RPG you might look elsewhere. But that's not what DragonFable is all about. It's all about the sheer fun of fighting magical creatures, leveling up, and exploring something new. Every week this game adds a new aspect as it is still in the early stages. As I've been playing they've added many campaigns, new weapons, a test mode for player vs player, pets that battle with you, and new stores in the village.
DragonFable is a perfect game for a quick 30 minute RPG fix—where you know that your experience and that new weapon you discovered will still be there when you log in again! Did I mention this game is free? You can pay to get more characters and weapons, as well as purchase Dragon Coins for special weapons. So, if you are looking for a great lunchtime game that brings fun back to the leveling up grind then DragonFable is for you. Click.
