What is Logres?

Logres is a free to play Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) from Marvelous Inc. and Aiming Inc. Like many MMORPGs, Logres has a focus on multiplayer, allowing for battles that have up to 8 players facing off against fearsome creatures, and ax-wielding teddy bears. The game allows players to level up various class such as Samurai, Priest, and Warlock and to switch classes whenever they want without having to have multiple characters. It also has a great drop-in drop-out combat system, where players can jump into battles that are already in progress to give others a helping hand. There’s no penalty for those already in combat, so there’s no downside to this system. While those are the two most interesting parts of Logres, there’s plenty more beyond seamless multiplayer and a good class system. Logres has a gacha mechanic for high level equipment.

Recommendation

Logres’ flexible class system and approach to multiplayer set it apart from the everything else on Android. While some user interface quirks, like the annoying placement of the share button, might harm the overall experience, it’s an experience worth having. Defeating bosses with seven other players on a map with dozens more is a fun experience that’s not common on mobile platforms, and it can be found here. Some tradeskills or player-player trading would have cemented this as a fantastic MMORPGs, but as it stands it is still one of the best MMORPG experiences on Android.
