Shakes & Fidget is a browser-based fantasy RPG. Our main activity is to create and develop characters, send them to dangerous adventures, and visit the inn, where we will satisfy the thirst, or in the arena, where we can face other players.
We have two factions to choose from, each of which has four races, from which we create our character. Then set the details such as lips, eyes, ears, and so on. The multitude of choices is large and you can create a hero who best suits your needs. Next we choose the class of our character, and we choose from three available: magician, archer and warrior. Heroes differ mainly in the types of statistics that need to be developed during the game. A warrior will need a lot of strength, while an archer will rather rely on agility.
The basic way of gaining cash, needed both for rearming the character and developing statistics are tasks. These can be found in the inn at the beginning of conversations with the guests. At each visit to the arrival we can choose one of three tasks, but it is worth paying close attention to the prizes, because sometimes you get more profitable tasks than others. Sometimes we get additional experience, sometimes more gold and sometimes also a magical object.
The game attracts attention with very pleasant graphics, and a humorous approach to the whole game. Beginning with the creation of a character for whom we can choose a completely bizarre facial expression, up to the content of the adventures themselves. During the latter we will have to find the body parts necessary to build Frankenstein or to hunt the rabbit-murderer, who puts a big question mark on the whole idea of Easter.
