FlowPlay integrated their virtual currency, shardless server and avatar technologies in downWorld. In addition, FlowPlay's catalog of virtual goods allows players to choose from thousands of items, which includes Weapons and Armor.
Players can begin their adventure by choosing their avatar from two classes: Caster or Breaker. The Caster Class (Mage) and the Breaker Class (Fighter) differ from each other in terms of their Weapons, Armor and Spells.
downWorld players must develop their skills and resources within a variety of environments and through a complex storyline, which unravels as players battle more and more enemies. These enemies range from beasts, robots, enemy agents and creatures that can cast horrible spells. downWorld allows players to forge communities through social interactions which helps them to progress through the many layers of rich experience in their journey.
A great downWorld feature is that players are able to leave their quests and enter the Arena, which allows players to meet and battle other players in order to help gain XP and certain rewards. Another unique feature includes Crew Battles, where players can battle other players within their crew for rewards.
