Dragon City review
The description of Dragon City
Dragon City Mobile is a version of the eponymous Facebook game, designed for mobile gadgets. It requires you to breed, raise and tame pet dragons, train them and build the whole city populated with the fire-breathing, scaly citizens.
The point of the game is to stimulate you to become a Dragon Master. And your new responsibilities include:
- Breeding dragons and new dragon types.
- Feeding and taking care of them.
- Building structures necessary for further leveling up, thus founding the whole Dragon Town. Habitats, farms etc. On four different floating islands.
- Finding resources, treasures, bonuses, etc.
All in all, it's laconic and simple gameplay. Dragons belong to various elements: Terra, Flame, Water, Nature, Dark, Electric, Ice, Metal and so forth. Apart from the main dragons, you can also acquire rare/thematic ones: Egyptian, Aztec, Olympus, Viking. But of course, it requires special habitats. As soon as you breed a roster of winged beasts, you can engage in battles with other players, competing over the Supreme Master Dragon title.
However, apart from gathering resources, breeding scaly boyos and partaking in the tournaments, you'll also have to do a lot of waiting. High-level tasks may require from 40 minutes to a couple of hours to accomplish and only pouring some cash into the game can relieve you from the burden of waiting.
Even breeding a new type is agonizingly slow, leaving you waiting for the two dragons to get along and the then the same period of time is necessary for the egg to hatch.
All in all, that's pretty much it what the game can offer, considering how much time of yours it can devour. Certain bonuses and goodies can be achieved by recruiting your friends to join Dragon City Mobile. But at the same time, some players complain they never received anything for bringing their buddies in and overall it was a waste of time.
The art style of the game is quite lovable, friendly and sunny. As you observe your domain of four islands, which must be explored, you can see all this crazy mambo-jumbo set in perpetual motion: dragons patrol the area, stroll, fly to and for etc. The game has a fairy-tale soundtrack, with medieval melodic tones prevailing in it. Beautiful harps, flutes, and bells nicely punctuate the magical appearance of the Dragon City Mobile and carry your imagination away.
Controlling is simple, if not primitive. Over the course of time, you'll notice that the objectives/missions have become so identical and repetitive, that you just need to tap your finger over and over on the display to accomplish them. Unless these are the missions that make you wait for countless hours.
