Released in May 2014 by GTArcade, Knights of Fantasyis one of the newest additions to the browser game genre. Chosen by the Gods, you have to become the hero that the world has been in desperate need of. Plunged right into the action, you are overwhelmed by the forces of hell, which have overrun the land and are now laying siege to the city of spirits. Sent through time by your friend Moira, you manage to escape and are preparing to fulfill your destiny. It is time to liberate the world from the forces of evil.
A classy approach to character design and combat:
Right now Knights of Fantasyprovides four classes to choose from: Knights, Magi, Fighters and the support class, Spiritus. Once you have chosen your favorite class, you are then ready to get stuck into the well written and animated single player campaign, which provides enough opportunities for side questing and other activities along the way. As with most current browser games that have an extensive combat setting, Knights of Fantasyhas made no exception and delivers a fully automated combat system.
Gather your party and unleash the beast within:
One of the key features of Knights of Fantasyis its interesting approach towards character development. Whereas most MMORPGs focus on the evolution of a single character, Knights of Fantasyhas taken it two steps further. The addition of customizable party members, which can be hired throughout the game, adds more depth to the otherwise casual context. Furthermore, there are beasts in Knights of Fantasy, which are – well… powerful!
Once unlocked and tamed, the player receives an additional ally in the form of an ancient beast that provides powerful assistance throughout your numerous fights. Basically beasts have stats and abilities like the player, but they can only attack once they have charged up their specific ability during the course of a fight. Players that are familiar with the final fantasy series and its Esper or Bestia will find a familiar resemblance in the beasts of Knights of Fantasy.
Casual or hardcore friendly? Knights of Fantasy allows both:
Even though the core concept of Knights of Fantasyis rather casual in its approach because of its streamlined single player campaign and automated combat system, it still manages to provide several options for in-depth character and party customization. PvP-features and multiple upgrade mechanics, combined with tons of different discoverable items which can be used to improve and customize your party, make sure that even hardcore players find something that they can really enjoy about this game. As for the casual players, who usually don’t spend much time in front of their computer, there are also several ways for them to get their hands on the high-end content. Mini games, like tending to your fishpond or battling bosses with friends represent just a fraction of what players can do.
