"Wizard101" is a free massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) featuring a turn-based combat system. It's a game designed for preteens, but enjoyable for adults as well. If you want something else like it, there are several MMORPGs available that share common elements and that you might find even more fun to play than "Wizard101."
Magic: The Gathering
"Magic: The Gathering" has been around for quite some time. It has both online and off-line versions, though you don't need to play the off-line version to enjoy the online one. Using virtual cards, play against opponents in a turn-based style, attempting to defeat them with superior characters and weapons. "Wizard101" draws from this style of gameplay, so if you enjoy "Wizard101" and are looking for something more adult, "Magic: The Gathering" might work for you.
"Runescape" is, according to its website, the most popular free MMORPG in the world. It does have a subscription element, which opens up more worlds and skills, but its free worlds are vast as well. Players can go on quests, fight creatures and learn skills from mining to runecraft. Like "Wizard101," you can use magic for many things. The games also share a level of quirkiness, and with Runescape's much more expansive free world, you might find that you're getting more for less.
"Maplestory" is a side-scrolling, 2D MMORPG. Its interface is designed for ease of use, giving it an easy approach. It shares a quirkiness with "Wizard101," and also has the same sort of cartoonish graphics. In "Maplestory," you can complete quests and defeat monsters, but it has a lot of freedom for creativity also. As an added bonus, "Maplestory" is completely free.
Like "Wizard101," "Atlantica Online" is a turn-based RPG. So if you are looking for that turn-based style, you might enjoy this one. It has you following a specific quest, where you are traveling through both time and space, gathering clues and items and defeating monsters. The ultimate goal is to reach Atlantis and discover its secrets, but there is tons to do on the way there.
