Bulkypix Make MMORPG Yslandia Free To Play

By , on April 11, 2011

With Gameloft set to enter the MMORPG space on iPhone via Order & Chaos Online pretty, pretty, pretty soon, the platform’s maiden take on the WoW phenomenon has just gone free to play.

Bulkypix’s Yslandia stepped into the iOS arena last August, delivering a unique massive multiplayer experience full of the genre’s usual tropes.

You know: quests, classes, weird creatures, mystery, and a growing dislocation from what’s known as THE REAL WORLD.

Well, it appears that the early enthusiasm for Bulkypix’s first-of-its-kind-on-iPhone epic hasn’t been curbed in the eight months since release.

More than 100,000 players from around this big wide world are now getting their Yslandia groove on, so the publisher is celebrating by making it free.

Huzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzahhhh.

Don’t blame me, though, if you start missing appointments, forgetting to get dressed, or choosing not to open the curtains on account of Yslandia.

Write to Bulkypix instead, alright.

Could you give me your opinion on this mmo? I already DLed it because it's free (lol), just curious what your thoughts are since appspy never put out a formal review for the title.

Sorry for the late reply, but I never had an opportunity to play Yslandia. At the time it came out we didn't have the time to cover it and eventually it lapsed as a game to cover. Seeing as it's free I'd definitely give it a go - from what I remember it's a fairly standard Action-RPG style much like other KRPG inspired titles, but being able to play with others definitely gives it an edge.
 
My only concern would be the connection speed to the servers based on where they're located - I don't imagine they have proxies across the world so depending on where you are it could be very slow or fast.
