Train your dragon game – Hiccup would be proud

Adventure Quest Dragons TitleRaise your own baby dragons into their Epic adulthood

The variety and quality of designs on display are amazing, and somehow manages to both break the traditional fantasy trappings, and also stick to traditional ground you are already familiar with.

Such as Tyrath the Smoke dragon, Rivensylth the Fairy dragon, Terrorbyte the Clockwork dragon (my personal favorite) and Krumblor the……Cookie dragon…

Creators of another little app you may have heard of, Clash of Clans, Boom Beach is up to the task of keeping you occupied for a good 20-30 minute play session.

Being one of the more popular apps on the app store also means there’s no shortage of strategy guides, clone apps, and bootleg lego minifigs. Bringing with it a large and active playerbase.

But how’s the base building?

The core gameplay revolves around building up a small military base on your own little tropical island. Taking place in an archipelago, you discover the Black Guard are invading neighboring islands and enslaving the inhabitants for…….well, because they’re evil I suppose. Continue reading →
