In a recent review Applelinks examined Dofus, a flash based fantasy MMORPG which offers players a colorful world to explore and a strategic turn-based battle system. The game features 11 playable classes and a large number of skills. Dofus received 4 out of 5 from the Applelinks.

From the review:

Dofus uses a turn-based battle system which has action points to determine how many skills can be used in a round, movement points to determine how far you can move on the battle grid, and health points which determine how much damage you can take before you die. The participants in the battle go in order based on their initiative, and their round ends when their time runs out or when they end it early because they've done all they can do. Each skill takes a different amount of action points and has varying ranges, and some skills need to have line-of-sight or have the player be on the same line as the enemy. The combinations of how the skills work together to change the battlefield, knowing the weaknesses of the enemies and the element types of the attacks they use, and the randomness of the damage done mean each battle is exciting and different. Winning a battle requires thought and planning, not just the ability to move the mouse and press the keys the fastest. The only aspects of the battles I dislike are the lack of a taunt ability to encourage an enemy attack you and the lack of a resurrection ability (which means if you die in battle, there's no way to rejoin it).
