Arcane Legends is a free-to-play online multiplayer co-operative action role-playing game for Android and iOS devices and desktop and laptop PC's through the web browser. The game is developed by Spacetime Studios and was first released in November of 2012.
As Arcane Legends is a free-to-play title from developer Spacetime Studios, the primary means of revenue for the game developers is through micro-transactions. Micro-transactions are small in-game purchases of items that may change a player's appearance or affect the gameplay by providing special boosts to the player's stats and abilities called buffs. Most of the items purchased through micro-transactions are usually also available to a player without having to spend real world currency, although he may have to spend a considerable amount of time to attain such items.
The gameplay mechanics of Arcane Legends resemble other so-called "dungeon crawlers" such as the famous game series "Diablo." Players advance through a wide variety of environments on quests for items known as loot, which drop from enemy creatures and can also be found randomly throughout the game world. Players can team up and use the specialized abilities of their class to take on challenges requiring unique strategies involving multiple character classes working together.
