Game Description and Comments
Shadow of Legend is a free MMORPG with 2D graphics that is available on both PCs and mobile devices. In fact SoL is one of the very first mobile MMORPGs along with Tibia Micro Edition. However the main thing to remember about Shadow of Legend is that it truly is a multiplatform game. Whether you play on a PC a PDA or a smartphone you have the exact same account. In addition the game looks and play the same on all of its platforms because the content and interface are all the same. You can even play two characters at the same time by using a PC and a smartphone. This type of interactivity is perfect for a MMORPG. You can play the PC version at home and then play the mobile version when ever you have time on the go. That said this is THE game to play if you want to try a mobile MMORPG.

Comment: “Shadow of Legend.” “Hrrmmm…” I thought. Fancy name but what does it mean? I figure that the only way I’ll find out is if I play the game. So I play. Ten hours pass by then twenty and I still cannot tell why the game was given its title. However despite my lack of comprehension it would be foolhardy to judge the game based on its title.
Shadow of Legend offers you much more than what you would expect from an MMORPG. It’s edge: the ability to play on both PC and mobile devices.
SOL is an evolving game. The game’s functions are evolving the game’s story is evolving and the technology it’s promoting is evolving. Like every fantasy game you have your usual races of humans elves orcs and dwarves; of which the game pits against each other in an ongoing war in a very LOTR-like atmosphere. However unlike every new fantasy game the beta testing is very interactive pushing new functions and adding to the story every week. The developers make players and beta testers feel as if you have an actual part in making the game.
At the moment Shadow of Legend is very quest driven instead of focusing on PvP. Leveling up takes forever and to speed it up the developers implement functions that will help you level up faster. The best function they’ve implemented to date is called the “Mushroom Cultivating” event. The Mushroom Cultivating event gives you a chance to gain experience for growing a mushroom until it matures. The catch is that monsters appear out of nowhere and attempt to eat your mushroom so you’ll have to fight them off. Warding them away is tough especially if the Mushroom Immortal shows up (which I’m not going to even talk about). Yet the rewards for surviving are plentiful and add to the fun of the game.
As you play the game you realize that it isn’t just the fact that Shadow of Legend is cross-platform but that the real attraction of the game is watching it evolve overtime and waiting for the developers to present us with new functions. It’s almost like opening your presents on Christmas morning!
Where Shadow of Legend is short on and can improve upon is fixing all the past bugs that continue to annoy the SOL community. The game crashes often and is extremely choppy when playing on a pocket pc. The number of players playing at one time continues to remain small and although that isn’t a programming problem players interacting with players at one time is a determinant for some in deciding whether he or she would want to continue playing the game. You can tell that Shadow of Legend is still a long way from being officially released and by that time I expect great things.
Shadow of Legend is free to play.
