The world's first side-scrolling 2D online game, MapleStory offers cute, adorable
graphics, a huge variety of items, and cool-looking avatars to leave its mark on the
online game industry.


Explore a totally new and unknown world you have never been to, put on beautiful clothes and gorgeous accessories, and even attract other users in the process. You may begin the journey to explore the world of unknown alone, but you may come out on the other end with numerous new friends through hunting and chatting. The games objective is to hunt down monsters and protect yourself in the process. You'll be given 12 paths to choose from, including but not limited to: Warrior, Bowman, Thief, Magician, and the Pirate job. Through leveling up and meeting some requirements, you'll be able to make job advancements and nurture your character in your own, unique way.


  • Beautiful, bright, colorful graphics.
  • Players can choose to be 1 of 12 different jobs, each very different and fun in their own ways. Job choices include: Warrior, Magician, Theif, Bowman, and the new Pirate job.
  • Tons of great looking monsters inhabit the large world. Some might be cute, others might be slightly scary looking.
  • A large world to explore, which includes hundreds of different maps to fight in and explore.
  • Many quests that involve collecting different items and fighting different monsters.
