Just curious. I was looking at other 2D sidescrollers and noticed a lot of similarities between features in these two games, but a number of them stood out in particular.
1) World Maps
3) Monster Cards.
4) HP bars above monsters' heads
Both games are also full of hackers, apparently, but that's sort of irrelevant.
I understand that WonderKing came out after MapleStory did (2006 vs. 2003) but as most of us know, many of the updates that implemented the aforementioned features 1-4 in MS were only made much later after MS's initial release.
I was wondering if anyone knew enough about both games to be able to say which game implemented what first. The possible implications of a Korean Zynga are sort of unsettling.
