HKO, or Hello Kitty Online, is a fantasy 2D MMORGP that is set in the universe of the ever-popular Hello Kitty. Set apart from other MMORPGs that have a strong focus on violent combat, the main emphasis in Hello Kitty Online is more that of crafting and finding resources. The whole idea of the game is for you to help Hello Kitty and all her friends wake from their eternal slumber and overtake the unknown evil villain.

This game is great for those of you who love Hello Kitty, as you will be placed in some mystery location in the universe of Hello Kitty. If you are a fan of the TV series, then you will no doubt love this game. In the game you will also find other beloved characters like Keroppi and Badtz-Maru. Probably the most interesting aspect of HKO is the emphasis that is placed on crafting and collecting resources. You will progress through the game, never needing to fight against monsters. Rather, you will craft or collect certain items. The highest level you will reach is 35, and you will have 8 skills that can also be leveled up. The skills are: carpentry, mining, planting, tailoring, gathering, cooking, forging and woodcutting.

The main location of the game is in Sanrio land. This is the cute and magical land of Hello Kitty. In this land, you can visit many places like Tokyo, Flower Kingdom, Paris, Moscow, London and many other great destinations. Regardless where you are in the world, you will have lots of puzzles, quests or other adventures to take part in.

Brief Overview

In the world you are represented by a human avatar that can be customized. The options you can modify are eyes, gender, face, skin tone, blood type and hairstyle. Though, as we mentioned before, you will not actually combat, there are weapons such as microphone stands, flyswatters and brooms. You can right-click on a nearby monster to engage in combat. During battle your avatar and the monster will exchange some blows, but the monsters in this game do not die. Instead, their health bars completely diminish, and at this point they become dizzy and pass out; thus being defeated. You can then loot the monster if you wish.

All gameplay interaction is based on point and click. However it also includes some of the traditional MMORPG shortcuts for the keyboard. Such shortcuts will: bring up inventory, character information, maps, and much more. Though you may find thescreen to look overwhelming at first, once you figure it out – it is really a simple system.

In HKO you will find tons of activities to do. The majority of them will circle around finishing quests set forth by non-player characters such as Pochacco the pup or Keropi the frog. To finish these quests, you will need to chop or harvest plants, whack monsters, farm, use production skills or mine resources. The best thing about the activities is that they can all be finished solo, but you are encouraged to help others out as well.

Presentation

The game’s graphics are cuddly, cute and pink, much like Hello Kitty the character!  Each monster, resource, background and NPC is presented in detailed, adorable and bright graphics. When you go to Florapolis from Sanrio Harbor, you are surrounded by walking yellow and orange starfish, green clover bunches that bounce and a shiny blue Hello Kitty Lake.

Sociability

One of the best aspects of HKO is the friendly interactions. The overall atmosphere is helpful and friendly, where more experienced players always lend a helping hand to the newbies. You will find that many tasks can be accomplished faster with the help of some friends. If you need other help, the Sanrio Harbor chat box is always full of player question and answers.

In the end, if you love games that are simple and have adorable graphics, then you will love HKO. The game is great for people of all ages, and you will really enjoy the overall experience.

Hello Kitty Online is free to play.
