Long before World of Warcraft and Diablo II, Runescape was the dominant MMORPG on the scene. The browser-based game was one of the pioneers in this genre, giving players the chance to practically live a second life in a virtual fantasy realm where they had free rein. Unsurprisingly, Runescape is still running strong despite its age and has even caught up with the times, as it can now be enjoyed from your Android phone.
For those who are curious about Runescape, it's a multiplayer game set in an immense world. Don't let its pixelated graphics fool you, gameplay is massive in scope and up to par with even the latest online RPGs. You can do almost anything that you want: Battle monsters and rival players, master various skills, cast magic spells, craft equipment and potions, and even cook delicious meals, to name a few.
The new Android version wasn't produced by Jagex, the game's original developer. Instead, it's being offered up by the RSCRevolution community. Nonetheless, Runescape Classic, as it's called, stays very close to its roots. The game is well maintained and continually updated, and it has the backing of a large, devoted community that ensures its strength and continuity. If we've piqued your curiosity and you'd like to give Runescape Classic a try, keep on reading to find out how.
Runescape Classic isn't available on the Google Play Store, so you'll have to sideload the game. To do so, just make sure to enable "Unknown sources" in Settings, then tap on the link below to download the APK installer file. From there, simply tap the Download complete notification and select "Install" when prompted.
After you've successfully installed Runescape Classic, you'll have to register before you can play the game, so head over to the RSCRevolution site and create an account. Once that's set up, you can now open Runescape Classic and let its massive world suck you in.
