MapleStory Flash Game – Maple Tower (Japanese Turn Based RPG)
Yeah so I was poking around basil and I saw this link to a maple story flash game. It’s a pretty neat game. What you do is go up this tower and fight monsters and stuff, the battle system is like that of the old FF’s and all that stuff.
Z – Accept
X – Cancel
Left arrow – Move
First one: Regular Attack
Third: Special Skill
Fourth: Potions, ect.
Every 5 floors or so you get to access the ITEM shop where you can buy potions, skills, and upgrade your characters stats. [The item shop option is the 3rd one down on the main menu]
– The first screen you see when you start a new game or load a game:
— The first option sends you into the tower.
— The second option lets you view and change your characters’ stats, equips, and skills.
— The third option is a shop.
— The fourth option saves the game. Press Z again and セーブしました should appear on the screen.
– In the tower:
— Select the first option in the menu and press -> to move through the floor.
— You’ll randomly encounter monsters and treasure chests, as well as one stairwell on each floor.
— If the floor you’re on is a multiple of 5, you’ll also encounter a portal.
— Once you encounter the stairs, you can select the second option on the menu to go to the next floor.
—- On floors that are (multiple of 5) – 1, you’ll fight a special encounter when you go up the stairs.
—– On (multiple of 10) – 1 floors, there is a boss (King Slime, Mushmom, etc.) when you go up the stairs.
— Once you encounter the portal, you can select the third option to go back to the first screen.
— The fourth option is always available, and allows you to use items.
– In battle:
— The first option is a normal attack.
— The second option lets you use skills.
— Skills cost MP. Use the left and right arrow keys to select which skill level to use the skill at.
— The third option is a powerful attack which works like FFVII’s limit breaks.
— The fourth option lets you use an item.
— When selecting a target, up/down switches targets, and left/right switches between one target and all targets (only applicable to certain skills.)
– In the stats page:
— Left/right switches the selected character.
— The first option allows you to distribute status points to HP, MP, STR, DEF, INT, MDF, and SPD.
— The second option allows you to change equipment. Each character can use one weapon, one piece of armor, and two accessories.
— The third option allows you to learn skills. You need a certain amount of skill points as well as some skill items you can purchase from the shop.
— Learning level 1 of a skill takes 1 item, learning level 2 takes 2 items, etc.
– In the shop:
— The categories are as follows: items (potions, etc.), weapons, armor, accessories, skills.
— You will unlock more items as you progress through the tower.
— To sell items, simply ‘buy’ a negative number of them. Of course, you can’t sell more than you have.
– Skill names (incomplete, probably inaccurate):
— Quick Strike
— Power Strike
— Double Strike
— Magic Ball
— Meteo (meteor?)
— Cure (GET THIS SKILL ASAP!)
— Confuse (???)
Notice the Final Fantasy influence in the skill names.
