KurtzPel is a third-person action battle game created by the developers of Grand Chase and Elsword Online. Players can outfit their characters with two separate jobs (called Karma) that can be swapped out and utilized mid-combat.
Players can take part in 2v2 PvP modes or player-created 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 Cctom missions, as well as raid-style quest battles against NPCs.
