Angeldust is still on early access, and due to this, it is still rough around the edges. However, the game is already rock-solid: packed with content and quirky features, it’s a fantastic MMORPG that gives a breath of fresh air into the genre. Its unique visuals, presentation, gameplay, and just about every element is a mix of Borderlands and Minecraft. It still needs a lot of work to be highly-rated; the developers are ironing out the kinks and are perfecting the game.
Angeldust is a first-person person RPG: the presentation is comparable to the cell-shaded graphics of Borderlands, while the HUD and user interface is comparable to that of Minecraft. As for the world itself, it’s a cross between the two games as well: you can make out blocky elements from Minecraft and the game design of Borderlands. The game does look a little cartoonish, especially in character design. The residents of Angeldust’s world look like characters from a mid-budget early millennia cartoon. This isn’t a bad, but it can be quite off-putting to some gamers.
There are several character classes, which are: fighter, scout, builder, and sorceress. In a nutshell, the fighters are the muscle of every party, while the scouts are equipped with ranged weapons to pick off targets from afar. Meanwhile, the sorceress is a magic wielder, and if you play as a builder, you will be focusing on creating in-game structures. You’ll be able to play according to your preferred play style, allowing you to create your very own persona in the game.
Angeldust’s game world is vast: there are over 25 beautiful landscapes to explore. These include lush forests with towering trees, hot deserts with the occasional cactus, a tundra with snow-capped hills and trees, as well as grasslands teeming with wildlife. You can basically just move around and appreciate what the world has to offer: you’d be surprised at the things you can discover.
The battle system is like that of a typical first-person game. Wield a sword to hack and slash your opponents, while fire off bolts or arrows when using a crossbow as a scout. There are over 250 monsters which you can hunt and take loot from. Although the number of monsters may not be large, it is both varied and growing. The current monster cast includes baby dragons, wild horses, to disfigured monstrosities resembling a caterpillar with legs. Well hey, it is a magical world wrought with dangers.
The game’s building element isn’t as deep as Minecraft, but it’s striving to do so. The game has over 200 construction materials to choose from, and this allows you to create towers, houses, and if you’re ambitious enough, a mini-castle. The options may be limited, but your imagination isn’t!
So, is Angeldust worth your time? Definitely. It may not be the perfect MMORPG, but its quirkiness and the new elements are things you would want to experience. The controls still need some work and there are existing bugs and issues, but it’s still an outstanding game. If you want to play in a world of your own, you can play in the “alone” mode and just immerse yourself in the world without other players jumping around you.
