Pokemonium – It’s Pokenet revived!!

25/07/2012

It’s been a while since Pokenet, a very promising new pokemon mmorpg, got shut down. But they didn’t leave us empty handed. They gave the source code of their game away so that anyone who wanted to could use and adapt it the way they wanted to. This is how Pokemonium was born. The developers of Pokemonium have taken the source code of Pokenet and have been developing it to provide an even better online pokemon experience!

The game is still in development but beta versions are released over time and are free to download and play. Beware though that beta means you might encounter bugs during your playtime, so be sure to use their community forums for help when something goes wrong. You should also know that any progress you make in the game during beta will be wiped when the game is released. All characters and accounts will be wiped at the final launch of Pokemonium.

Pokémon Omega

24/08/2011

Pokémon Omega

Pokémon Omega is a free to play online Pokémon RPG. You do not have to download anything to play Pokémon Omega. You can play it inside your browser. The game has been in development since 2009 and it is still being developed at this moment. But a playable version has already been released.

When you start playing Pokémon Omega, you feel that this game has been in development for quite some time. The map is extensive, looks nice and movements on the map are very smooth.

The gameplay of Pokémon Omega is very similar to most Pokémon games. You start as a Pokémon trainer, represented by a sprite of your choosing, on the map and you have just one Pokémon. Then you can start training and catching Pokémon.

Pokémon Omega offers everything you would expect from a Pokémon RPG: training and catching Pokémon, a pokedex, gyms to battle, a ranking system, etc.. But in Pokémon Omega you can also do quests! Quests can be started by talking to NPC’s and once started they can be found in your quest list.

Some other interesting features are animated battles and an interactive world map. This way you can easily travel around the map. You must have visited a city once though, before you can travel there quickly with just one click on the map.

If you’re searching a decent online Pokémon game with interesting features that you can play inside your browser, without having to download anything, then Pokémon Omega is the game you are looking for!

Pokémon Infinity

26/07/2011

Pokémon Infinity is a Pokémon MMORPG you can play inside your browser, so you don’t need to download anything. The game is already released, but it still receives a lot of updates.

Pokémon Infinity has a lot to offer. You might think that a browser game has less to offer than a client based game, but with Pokémon Infinity that is not the case. Like we all expect from a Pokémon game, you can run around on a 2D map with your Pokémon trainer and fight against other Pokémon or trainers. You can also do quests to gain experience.

But Pokémon Infinity has a lot more to offer. You can start your own clan, your own shop or you can even breed your own Pokémon!

If you choose to donate money to the Pokémon Infinity developers, then you will receive tokens you can use in the token shop. In this shop you can buy Pokémon and items. You will also receive in game advantages like extra experience and a bigger chance to encounter special Pokémon.

You also receive in game advantages if you refer friends to Pokémon Infinity with your special registration link. These advantages are similar to those you get for donating.

Pokémon Infinity has a Chaos version that is similar to the original version but it offers easier special finding, elemental maps, easier transportation and a new theme.

I can conclude that this game is different from any other Pokémon MMORPG game, and you might want to try it out if you’re looking for a decent Pokémon experience inside your browser.

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated PokéMMO, so now it is time to see what has become of each pokemon mmorpg. I am wondering if these pokemon games have grown into real MMORPG games and i’m hoping to find some new beautiful projects!

I regret to tell you that some cool projects have ceased to exist. I even read that some of them, namely Pokenet and Pokémon Crater, were closed by Nintendo, which is very concerning news. But luckily there are still  a lot of projects up and running, and even a few in development and soon to be released. In the next weeks I will post more info on these games to keep you all informed.

Please post a comment if I forgot a Pokemon MMORPG game!
