War, what is it good for? Dragons… that’s what!
Safe to say that most people are into dragons, yes? Monolith sky reptiles, often depicted to be spitting fire out their mouths – spraying past fangs of varied length and tenacity – onto small peaceful villages, or toward armour-clad heroes far too slow in realising what a stupid mistake they’ve made taking one on. Shields do not help in real life, if a dragon were to attack you. Wear an astronautical suit, dummy. Fire proof. Fight fire with Sci-Fi.
War Dragons is a 3D strategy game that provides the dread of ever looming danger a fiery airstrike instils, whilst giving you the power of fierce fire breathers by way of defense; it also grants you the impossible opportunity to birth, breed, and grow yourself a faithful reptilious sky armada to do battle with. Available for all of your mobile devices, this app is a must have for fantasy lovers.
First, the story; as this game is online only, where many of the attributes and highlights are found in the online experience, why attempt at adding a decent story line?
Your power hungry uncle goes out of his maniacal way to kill your family, to achieve a better place in line for the throne, and you have the gaul to survive and escape the country of your youth. Some years later, you return. Ironclad and angry in search of vengeance, and to take your rightful place on the throne.
With the aid of those still loyal to your immediate family’s claim and those rebelling from under your uncle’s reign, you learn the ways of war and what it will take to reclaim your birthright. Also, dragons are involved.
It isn’t a tale worthy of the ages, but you’ve got to appreciate the creative buffer offered between battles. The creators of the game have gone one step further and have authored a book (All Things Burn) that ties in with the WarDragons universe. Hell yes, literature to go along with a mobile gaming app. Well done, PocketGems.
Secondly, the dragons; what is a war waged with dragons without the dragons? A war all the same, yes, but less fiery! Though you start out in the game with one dragon, you quickly assemble more. Having the ability to cross-breed species is an enticing one that offers terrifying results.
The dragons that you breed, train, fight with, are all incredibly cool, three-dimensional, killing fire-breathers. Customisation adds another layer onto this already badass gaming experience.
Add barricades and defences to you isle. Do deadly battle with other uses of the game. Take on Gustav, and for the sake of your legacy, win.
This game is for; the dragon tamer in all of us, the adventurous, and the strategically minded player. Join players from across the world in ferocious battle.
