A Combination of Interesting Items

Adding Humor to the Game
Strolling through Maple World you see a character with a humongous head bouncing a prehistoric-looking club off an over-grown mushroom’s orange head. The mushroom squeaks, sheds a tear or two, and jumps back a hop—all the while you’re wearing only your birthday suit and lots of bath bubbles. Mix in a wide array of funny facial expressions and quirky NPCs, and it’s hard not to enjoy your stay in MapleStory!
MapleStory’s detailed, colorful graphics really make it stand apart from the rest. Everywhere you look, no detail has been spared. From each town’s individual architecture to the moving leaves of the forest, it’s worth spending time in the game just appreciating the distinctive graphics of MapleStory. Of course, when you’re actually hunting monsters against the gorgeous backdrops and using your various skills, MapleStory is at its flashy, dynamic best.
In essence, MapleStory is about bridging the unique and the bizarre with the usual and the norm. This one creative concept allows for an overflow of creative juices to continually pump into the game from not only the developer, but you the player as well. Because, after all, MapleStory is your story.
