New AQW Game Menu

What is the Game Menu, and Where is it?

If you've logged into AQW recently, you've seen our NEW Game Menu! This dragon-headed menu of buttons is how you access some of the most important content  in AQWorlds! It is available wherever you go in-game, giving you access to news, the weekly release, shops, and ways to enhance your battle-skills!

The most useful dragon in-game!

Here's a breakdown of what the Game Menu includes:

  • News: AQWorlds releases EVERY week, and sometimes it's hard to keep track of what all we've added! Check the news to see what's new!
  • Weekly release: We add a lot to AQW every Friday, but there is always ONE main release. The 2nd button on the Game Menu will take you straight there!*
  • Adventure Now: Not sure what to do? Go on a random adventure! This button will take you to a zone suitable for your character's level. Battle, get rewards, and have fun!
  • Special release: Special releases unrelated to the main weekly release can be found in THIS button! Right now, we're celebrating Galanoth the DragonSlayer's birthday in /lair!
  • Featured shop: Whatever shop we are currently featuring (a birthday shop, Quibble shop, holiday shop, etc) will appear here in the Game Menu!

Enhance your gear from anywhere in-game now!

  • Shops: Click this to see a wide selection of shops great for adventurers of any level! Whether you need low-level gear or high-level enhancements, you'll find them here!
  • PvP: Many of our experienced heroes love to battle monsters... and each other! Click the PvP button to queue up for a player vs player match!
  • Free ACs: Head to Ballyhoo and watch ads for a chance to earn free Adventure Coins!
  • Get Membership/Get ACs: This button opens up the in-game payment window. Read more about this below!

The Game Menu starts out open as soon as you log into AQWorlds, but you can close or open it back up by clicking on the Treasure Chest icon in at the bottom of your screen.

Click me, I'm a treasure chest!

We are aware of the game menu bug where it does not close when you switch to another map. We'll be fixing that AND adding the PvP shop to the Player vs Player tab later this week!

* Soon this button will open an Adventure Map, showing you your progress through the current main zone, and taking you RIGHT to where you need to be!
