Pardus is a sci fi browser MMO developed and published by Bayer & Szell OG. One funny fact is that game developers adopted a cat and named it Pardus, just like the game. Story of Pardus, the cat, can be read on the official website. Pardus is an old browser game, it was released in 2006 but it’s still going strong. There are 3 main Pardus gameplay aspects: building, trading and fighting. Players fight against computer controlled creatures and against human opponents as well. There is no Pardus class system. Players pilot customizable space ships. Pardus economy is created by players through trading.
There is a bit of story behind Pardus but the game is not story driven. Adventures take place in a fictional chaotic universe. The need for war machines led to great scientific discoveries but the citizens didn’t benefit from all these conflicts. Players embark on a quest for wealth and glory. Pardus is a MMO game so there is competition between players. Traveling the vast world of Pardus wouldn’t be possible without a space ship. The universe is hostile so space ships need to be properly equipped for fights. Ships customizations and upgrades cost money. Players can obtain Pardus money by completing in game activities. Trading is one profitable activity but first players must acquire goods to trade. Mining for precious minerals is a rewarding job. These raw mats can be transformed into various goods. Players build the necessary production facilities. Pardus has an assignment system. Completing all sorts of tasks is another way to get money. Raiding other buildings and plundering ships is an alternate method to make some profit. Each Pardus user is free to choose his play style. You can join an alliance and be part of a community or fight alone. There is PvE and PvP content so players have multiple options.
The action point system is one important Pardus feature. All game actions cost action points. Players automatically regenerate action points but there’s a daily cap. When starting Pardus for the first time, players have to go through a short tutorial and choose a playable race. There are 4 Pardus race choices. Pardus is one of the free browser games that have 3 factions and each faction has 2 races. Factions can control in game territories. Syndicates are smaller alliances. There are 2 Pardus syndicates: Esteemed Pilots Syndicate and Shadow Syndicate. Players can join only one syndicate. Being member of a syndicate unlocks ships and other unique gear. Factions have specific ships too. Pardus has a turn based combat system. Graphics aren’t among the best features but Pardus has a good quality gameplay.
