KULTAN: The World Beyond, is a sea combat free to play browser game set in a fantasy world filled with adventures, quests, and sea monsters. You can experience many of the usual MMORPG gameplay aspects in Kultan, this time your character will be doing everything from the captains chair on board the best vessel currently on hand.When creating a character you have three choice – The Adventurer, Mystic, or Commander. Three factions are at war in the realm as well, players will need to choose their allegiance and be prepared to fight to the death in PVP combat against ships and captains from opposing factions.
Getting start is very simple, create your captain, choose your faction,and finally, cteate you character. Then, you can explore the game. By the way, it is highly recommended that all new players participate in the tutorial.
Combat is very straight forward and easy. Simple right click the opponent and your ship will start to fire upon your enemy until they are dead. Special skills are assigned to the number keys and can be used any time they are not on cool down. New skills are automatically learned as a player levels up and can be very valuable in any battle.
Each ship has the ability to also be upgraded and there are also special items such as more powerful ammo that can be loaded into your cannons to do additional damage. Upgrades along with special items can allow players to take on monsters and other players who are far about a players current level. Allowing a player to level up much more quickly or gain glory and fame more quickly.
Quests are the life blood of the PvE campaign. Kultan has no shortage of quests and not only do these give players a good amount of direction, they provide a great way to level up much more quickly.
Graphics and Interface
As a browser game, the graphic is really great. You can really see the details in all the land and in the depths of the water. Animations are fluid and really add to the games look and feel as ships break apart when taking damage, or a monster attacks with viscous fury. All these little things really make the game that much more entertaining. It is really not that much of a shock really though as the game is using the Unity3D engine which is already showing to be a premier engine for companies to develop on and showcase what can be done on the browser in 2012.
The interface is a players dream. Sleak and streamlined and kept very minimalistic. Plays who enjoy seeing more of the action and less of the UI will be in heaven when they see the UI for Kultan. The gameplay takes a front seat and while the UI is set up nicely around the edges the size is just about perfect for being able to see and access all aspects of the game as well as know what each of the buttons are there for. Very well done indeed.
Kultan is a fun little browser game, but we still hope more content will be added in the game. Spending all your time aboard a ship is ok, but at the same time a little exploration by foot, even if only around town, would be a nice added touch. Combat is simple and can get a bit repetitive, but still fun at the same time. Having a map that is not completely explored and only shows itself as you start to move around and explore it is a very nice touch from the game. Hopefully the game can find a larger player base as the bones for a decent game are there, but the playerbase seems a bit lacking at this time.
