"AdventureQuest" is a single-player Flash role-playing game for the PC platform. It debuted in 2002 and is still active as of 2015. While it takes some elements from classic tabletop role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, "AdventureQuest" is a simple game appropriate for both children and adults.
The game focuses on turn-based combat with various monsters, minions and bosses throughout the in-game world. While the game has many side quests and story lines, it is primarily a sandbox role-playing game. This allows the player to customize his character and spend as much time as needed collecting gold and rewards to purchase gear and level up.
The player chooses a class near the beginning of the game, which determines the types of weaponry and armor that the character can use. The class choices include Fighter, Wizard, Ninja, Vampire Slayer, Rogue, Knight, Mage, Paladin and Dragonslayer. There are no race choices.
In addition to class choices, players can affect their battle outcomes by choosing weapons and armor with elemental alignments, purchasing potions to buff their statistics, or carrying special pets that have various effects on the battle. Pets may attack on their own or provide extra statistics or resistances in battle.
