Those who like World of Warcraft, at one point or another, have thought about how it would be like to play as one of the NPCs or neutrals that spawn all around the world. Well, Murloc RPG gives you that chance, only you won’t be playing Thrall, you’ll be undertaking quests as a murloc named Murk.
An RPG that’s almost a side scroller
Murloc RPG is aimed to deliver the simple idea of playing WoW as a murlock. You start off the game in your murlock village doing murlocky things when you are summoned by the leader of your tribe to perform a quest. After you slay some wolves you start becoming a full fledged warrior and more and more villagers request your services.
All the action takes place in a 2D environment where you only have to move from right to left or vice-versa in order to get where you need and kill what needs to be killed. There is no jumping or any kind of other interaction.
Equip your murlock and teach him special skills
Like in WoW, your character gains levels and with each one you receive a talent point which you can use to learn a special skill. You get both passive and active skills along with a few spells that can be cast in combat.
In Murloc RPG, each fight turns into a turn-based one and since you don’t have any keybinds for your skills they tend to become rather boring especially since you have to fight every neutral you find along your path. Just like in WoW, Murk can take a certain path in his skillbuild, opting for a full rage, magic or combined build.
An interesting take on WoW
All in all, Murloc RPG’s graphics are unappealing compared to today’s standards, the animations are way too repetitive and gameplay is a bit tedious but overall, it still offers a unique twist for WoW fans.
