Elsword is a fun and very appealing game to say the least. It is set in a world that looks like a colourful comic book and has anime-style graphics. The game is a 3D MMORPG non-stop side-scrolling game with some RPG elements. Basically, as a player, your job is to progress to different levels without getting killed, fighting off various enemies to complete quests.

With regards to the type of gameplay, you can find both PVP and PVE gameplay within the game, although the main focus seems to be more on the latter. Similar to many other MMOs, Elsword is mostly about the gameplay and has some role-playing elements to make the game even more engaging. For instances, you can enter guilds and fights against other guilds, chat with other players, and more!

You’re basically clicking the same keys over and over again, but the way the game progresses and the way your get to see your character grows is what makes the game a stellar one. Plus, there are also a number of interesting bosses that vary in the level of difficulty, so although you’re repeating more or less the same actions, the levels do intensify and become even more challenging every time. This is definitely a game you should check out.

Aura Kingdom

The storyline of Aura Kingdom is probably one of the best things about this game. Set in the vivid world of Azuria, we learn that the power of Gaia remains ever-present, and whenever there are rough times ahead, this same power awakens spiritual gifts in certain individuals. These individuals then become Envoys of Gaia, and the faith of humanity rests in their hands.

As the power awakens within the Envoy, a spirit of the Aura Kingdom is drawn to them and takes the shape and personality from the hopes and fears of the envoy, becoming an Eidolon. The Eidolon, together with the Envoy, will fight off anyone who wants to destroy Azuria. As the player, you will take the role of the Envoy, and will do your best to save Azuria from darkness.

The interesting part is that players can choose from one of eight classes for their Envoy: The Guardian, The Duelist, The Ravager, The Wizard, The Sorcerer, The Bard, The Grenadier, and The Gunslinger; and choose from one of the four starting Eidolon companions to team up with. The Eidolons do not only team up with the Envoy during battles to create badass combos, but away from the battlefield they are useful because they can converse to the player about their past accomplishments like boss kills. Moving forward, players can recruit more Eidolons to join them.

Moon Princess

Moon Princess is one of the best Japanese anime-themed slot game to hit online casinos and while many players prefer the icecasino bonus, Moon Princess comes in a close second. Mostly, it’s probably because it is highly reminiscent of the classic anime 90s kids all know too well and love – Sailor Moon. From the space-themed symbols on the reels to the celestial bodies embossed on the girls’ magical staffs, there is no doubt this game was inspired by Sailor Moon.

Even the characters in the game greatly resemble the three main protagonists in the anime- Love, Star, and Storm clearly reflect the three main characters in the anime: Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, and Sailor Mercury. The only thing that’s missing – which we believe should be included in a game sequel – is the handsome Tuxedo Mask.The first time I played the game I expected him to turn up during the bonus!

The game is fairly recent as it was released just last year, which means that it has good graphics and interesting gameplay. Better yet, it has an RTP of 96.5%. The game is simple – it is a 5×5 drop down grid where you need to land 3 or more symbols in a row, either horizontally or vertically, to gain wins and hopefully trigger the rewarding Free Spins feature, that consists of 3 different options.

The best feature of the game, is the Princess Trinity feature. In the game there is a meter on the left hand side and if you manage to fully charge it, you will be awarded one free round where each of the princesses will perform their power feature – and that can mean some pretty big wins. Although, we have to admit, it is certainly no easy feat.

But then again, anything is possible, clearly, especially with what happened with this guy:

This game might just be my top favourite out of this whole list. Its epic graphics and frightening creatures make the world of Closers pretty cutting-edge. Guaranteed there are better games than this on the internet, but it’s still one of the most popular and liked ones. Basically, the game is a 3D MMORPG side-scrolling game which has a pretty cool storyline. In a way, it kind of reminds us of Akira, since the teenagers in the game possess psychokinetic powers.

These teenagers have to battle an alien invasion after mysterious dimensional gates opened up all over the world, unleashing gruesome alien creatures who are seeking to invade the planet. In a strange turn of events, these same dimensional gates caused latent powers within select teenagers to awake. These teens are called Closers, because their duty now is to close the gates and send the aliens away from wherever planet they came from.

The game is set in Korea, and as a player, you will be one of several of these young warriors, each their own unique back story, that will fight to reclaim your country! As you progress throughout the game you will pass through various areas such as abandoned streets and dungeons, and will also have solo missions to accomplish. You will also become stronger and develop more powers as you move from level to level. Last but not least, you can also battle against other players by partaking in the Union Arena mode.
