Bleach Online is a browser-based, strategy MMORPG from GoGames set in the popular Bleach manga/anime universe. The game is considered non-canon as any of the events in the game occur independent of the original manga series. In the game, you play as one of six selectable characters from three available classes. The game opens with your character waking up after a 1,000 year slumber on a strange Human World with no memories of who/where you are. It’s up to you to interact with many of the Bleach Universe’s most popular characters to regain your memories and save your friends who get mistaken as rebels!
As is standard fare for many MMORPGs of the browser genre, Bleach Online requires very little in terms of actual player involvement. It follows in the same vein as games such as Knight’s Fable, Angel Alliance and League of Angels, where the narrative plays out as less of a game and more as an interactive story book. Players will auto-path to their quest destinations and will watch battles play out automatically. Fans of this style of gameplay will feel right at home in Bleach Online’s colorful, gorgeously-animated world — permitting that they can put up with poor localization. Grammatically poor sentences are by no means a deal-breaker, but they do nothing to help the game’s already shallow immersion.
Giving credit where it’s due, Bleach Online allows the player to choose the formation of their team for battle, thereby altering how some battles might play out. This feature, coupled with equipment upgrades and modifications, gives the player the opportunity to maximize their Battle Power (the accumulation of factors such as health, defense, health, etc and the sole determining factor for battles). This is important not only for the game’s main quest, but also for MMO features like PvP and guilds.
Being a free to play MMORPG, Bleach Online does incorporate microtransactions, which help players progress faster or unlocks features, like the ability to skip battle sequences entirely. While limiting certain features via paywall is obnoxious, it doesn’t necessarily hinder the overall experience. In fact, purchasable add-ons never feel forced or obligatory for progression.
While Bleach Online doesn’t bring anything new to the genre, fans of the manga/anime series may find enjoyment in interacting with the series’ characters. Even those new to the universe will find a decent story (if not somewhat incoherent) and beautiful graphics/animations to keep them entertained for a decent chunk of time. That said, hardcore gamers looking for anything more than a superficial, extreme-casual experience should probably look elsewhere.
Knight’s Fable is a browser MMORPG that features much of the content that fans of the genre love including an expansive loot system, opportunities for rare and epic gear, gems and heroes, an array of trainable beasts of the ever popular PvP arena. “We’re confident that Knight’s Fable will be a success.” Said Frances Sun, Product Manager for Knight’s Fable. “Players can train heroes and beasts, and then use them together in battle alongside their main character. Many MMORPG’s only offer the opportunity to level up a single character. ”
In the game you will be able to raid dungeons and pillage the land in search of loot while you recover ancient gear to piece together equipment sets with some crazy bonuses. You’ll also be able to insert rare gems into your gear for added stat upgrades. Additionally, the game gives you the ability to capture and train wild beasts to fight alongside you. The beasts all have their own unique skills, auras and stats, and you’ll be able to use them to your advantage in battle. To help boost your chance of success, you can visit taverns around the realm to recruit different heroes that also posses their own skills, stats and special abilities. The ability to create your own battle party is one of the best features of Knight’s Fable.
Knight’s Fable features a fairly passive approach to gameplay and questing. Fighting and traveling to different map locations are handled outside of player control, which is ideal for gamers looking for an exciting story but don’t have the time to invest fully or engage their full attention. Outside of navigating menus and clicking NPCs/locations, there is little that the player needs to worry about. Some hardcore gamers may see this as a turn off, but even the most experienced of players can find an enjoyable, casual experience if they take the time to explore some of the game’s more advanced mechanics.
Much of Knight’s Fable’s depth comes from leveling up your main character, those in your party and your beast. All of your leveling, purchasing and upgrading contributes to an overall BR rating which determines your total strength. Players will need to quest, dungeon crawl and pay special care to get their BR as high as possible. It’s a system that is straightforward in design but contains enough contributing factors and complexities to give advantage to anyone willing to dig deeper. (For more information on this, check out our Knight’s Fable Walkthrough – Leveling and PvP Guide!)
The hand-painted art style and sprites look good and suit the gameplay well. While the visuals are nothing ground breaking, they are ideal for the browser game as locations and battles load quickly. Enemies, beasts and NPCs are varied and well designed. Overall, GTArcade’s solid art direction presents an experience that is varied and cohesive.
Important to mention in a Knight’s Fable review is monetization. The game is free-to-play and does a good job of incorporating microtransactions without hindering the player or affecting the experience negatively. Many character upgrades of the game will enter a cooldown period after prolonged use and while you can purchase in-game gold to bypass this, it is by no means a requirement. None of the cooldowns felt excessive or unfair making the gold option a welcomed choice, never an obligation.
