Nadirim is a free-to-play browser mmo inspired by the Arabian Nights folk tales. The first version of Nadirim was developed by Digital Reality, but the current iteration was created by Twisted Tribe Ltd. and is now hosted as a free no download mmorpg on the Aeria Games platform.
Like a whirling dervish, Nadirim sweeps players across danger-filled deserts in search of adventure. Nadirim players can assume the role of three classes – a melee-bashing Warrior, a ranged-healer Sage or a tricks-and-traps Rogue. Each class adopts a different tactic when moving through the game’s hex-grid map. The player can basically go anywhere from hidden oases to magnificent cities like Zenithar to take on quests and progress through the story. There are also daily and group quests available that enhance the replayability and help inject variety into the MMO grind. Also, players can even enlist the aid of whimsical djinns.
PvP comes in the form of encounter matches where players who stumble into each other can choose to fight to earn bonus experience and loot. Combat in Nadirim is turn-based and each player starts with Energy Points that gets depleted when accepting quests and battling enemies in PvE. Energy Points regenerate over time similar to how it happens in other games like Farmville. Nadirim enthusiasts who desperately want to continue play even with depleted Energy Points can purchase replenishing Elixirs from the cash shop of the browser MMO.
Still, it’s PvE play that gets a focal treatment in Nadirim. Plenty of game content can only be unlocked when you continue to finish the main quest line which is marked by green. Of course, there is an incentive to break it up once in awhile since PvP and group quests offer their own unique rewards. Nadirim’s in-game currency is called dinar, and it can be earned through the usual means of defeating monsters, completing quests and selling extra loot. Accumulating dinar can be worthwhile since it can be exchanged for equipment upgrades and healing potions.
Nadirim launched with a level of cap of 25, which will no doubt be raised with new content patches, but it does not have an ending. Like most MMO’s it has an open-ended gameplay that allows each player to continue exploring the expansive world despite having completed the main storyline and reached the max level. While not everyone can see the point of moving around a hex map or taking turns attacking and defending – game elements that seem more fitted in a console RPG than an MMO -- strategy fans should appreciate both in spades.
