|Ragnarok Battle Offline|
|Genre(s)||Beat 'em up|
Ragnarok Battle Offline is a beat 'em up game for Microsoft Windows created by dōjin soft developer French-Bread. The soundtrack is composed by Raito of Lisa-Rec. It is a homage and a spoof of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Ragnarok Online created by South Korean developer Gravity Corporation.
Ragnarok Battle Offline impressed Gravity Corporation so much that it has been given a release outside Japan. Released as Ragnarok Battle, the game has been distributed in Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand and a deluxe package in Korea which comes with its own gamepad. Level Up! Games also released an English version of Ragnarok Battle Offline available in the Philippines. However, this release is based only on the initial version of Ragnarok Battle Offline, which does not include the expansions released by French-Bread.
Though primarily a beat 'em up game, Ragnarok Battle Offline also contains some role-playing elements. The player creates a character from one of six basic classes and one unlockable class, allocate points to the character's stats and skills, and enter one of the stages. Up to three people can play at once, using the keyboard, joysticks or gamepads.
