MUD and MUSH Game Reviews

MUDs or Multiuser Dungeons are the predecessors to what we now know as MMORPGs. These type of games are mostly text-based and are still played by gamers looking for depth more than graphics.

3K is an LP style mud started in 1992. The world centers around the town of Pinnacle which sits between the 3 enormous realms. Fantasy, your classic medieval world full of elves, orcs, dragons and pixies. Science, a sci-fi realm of post-apocalyptic earth and space. Chaos a bizarre realm where Fantasy and Science collide and imagination takes over and anything is possible. A Newbie friendly environment with extensive help files and friendly players. Extensive coding over may years has produced a game system including nearly 20 customized guilds (knights, witches, bards, necromancers, cyborg, jedi, angels and many more) to enhance your character and shape their existence, a party system for playing together, 165 quests to solve, player owned houses, customizable ANSI, a casino, clans of players who compete in virtual wars, special events and much, much more.

Alter Aeon is an old MUD that's been around since 1995. It has a custom client that adds a graphical map and other features, but it can also be played using standard MUD clients. The game is newbie and blind friendly, so if you've never played a MUD before, you may want to take a look.

The game theme is swords and sorcery/D&D, with dragons, priests, and spellcasting. All characters are multiclass, with the four basic classes of mage (spellcaster), cleric (priest/godly power), thief (stealth and social engineering), and warrior (melee combat). Other skill sets, such as druid or ranger, are built from combinations of these.

New players will find an extensive support structure of Avatars, low level areas and quests specifically designed for newbies, as well as extensive on-line help and FAQs. Advanced players will find no shortage of areas to explore, quests to complete, or items to find. Clans, guilds, and player owned shops provide an entertaining place to spend down time.

The game play is based on several main corner stones; advancement, expansion, adventure and story line. The game world incorporates a living breathing city where new stories and plots develop each hour. The dungeons are sprawling and jam packed with monsters, tricks, traps and puzzles. The land is rich with quests that can take weeks to solve and that link together to form epic stories. In the distant areas of the land new dungeons open and old dungeons are sealed off, all the while, the land expanding as time goes on opening up more and more opportunities to the willing adventurer.

Taverns, guilds, ruins, mountain ranges, lairs, dungeons, tombs, catacombs, caverns and more are available to be explored. You will not be adventuring alone, join any time day or night and meet up with other people in the realm, chat to them, share stories with them or adventure with them.
