Shot-Online is an online golf game, it is FREE to play, yes absolutely free! It is a 3D massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) allowing character development and play against other users. The game, which debuted in 2004, is produced by OnNet Co., Ltd. of Seoul, South Korea.
As with other role-playing games, a player’s first step is to create a character (one or more, but a maximum of three per registered account is allowed). There are six different character types. Each character type has a unique appearance along with a unique set of values for stats. After completing a tutorial that explains the basics of swinging, putting, choosing clubs, etc., the player’s character will enter a virtual world, which consists of:
* The Square – the common area where players gather to interact with other players, to rest after a round (periodically required to reduce fatigue), or to visit NPCs.
* Various 18-hole golf courses of varying difficulty. (Fourteen courses as of January 2007.)
* A driving range, putting green and other practice areas.
* (NEW) An Auction House to auction off your items.
Gameplay is fairly straightforward. A player can golf alone or join a room with up to three other players. For each hole completed, the character earns both experience points and in-game currency called NG. More experience points and NG are awarded when playing with others. When the player accumulates enough experience points, his/her character will advance to the next level. When a player accumulates enough NG, he/she can use it to purchase items such as new clubs, balls, clothing, greens fees, and club repair fees.
