MapleStory was released on August 9, 2012 by Nexon who also developed the game. MapleStory is a classic side scroll games.

MapleStory is a real throwback to the early years of PC games which featured a scrolling game works. These early games were undemanding as machines of the period where far from the capabilities available today.

The game has 30 playable characters. Each has differing capabilities etc.

The game has the usual side scroll pickups. Collect weapons and armor to become the greatest warrior Maple World has ever known.

MapleStory also has steamworks added so it has lots of social capability.


This game is huge at 14GB compared to a floppy or 2 for the classic side scroller. The game will run on modern integrated graphics but a video card will do wonders for gaming generally. Game needs at least a dual core processor and DX9 or better video hardware.
