If enough people like and download this game, I'm planning to develop free expansions early next year. So, if you like it, please show your friends how fun it is to burn and smash castles to pieces!
Smash, burn, eat!
This is the best iPhone game I've played all year. I am Earth Dragon, destroyer of worlds. I burn hapless archers (haha, your arrows are no match for my flames!), I pummel wizards from above (didn't see that coming, did you wizard?), and I smash castles down to their foundations. The princess? I sent her flying offscreen in an arc of blood. (I would have liked to hold onto her. But you know how I get when I'm in my destructive rage :^( This game is pretty much what the iPhone was made for. There is nothing quite like the feeling of taking down a castle and burning everyone inside. Really makes me wonder why there are so many tower defense games when tower offense is so much more fun. I am Earth Dragon, destroyer of worlds!
Fun and cute! First iPhone game I've bought and the first game I've played to completion in a long time (just beat it now and will play again anyway). Addictive enough for me to play until my battery died, at a time when I still needed to, umm, have battery and use the phone/maps... Oops.
I let some friends try it out, and noticed that for an iPhone game, it definitely makes people move around a whole lot, with the flapping and swooping, heh! :)
Cute but not worth the $2.99 price
Pros: fun premise, good sound effects
Cons: graphics are rough, downward movement is easy but upward movement with tilting the iPhone is slow and awkward, only really 3 playable levels (the last 3 levels, the rest of the levels are essentially tutorials), should be $0.99 at the most since there are only 3 levels
In short, I feel that it is a rip-off for $2.99. Even though this is not a large amount of money, I still don't like throwing it away on something that is not worth the price.
Do not waste your time or money until an update comes out with more real levels. I honestly don't know why it has so many positive reviews. One has to wonder about the source of these reviews because the glowing reviews far outweigh the quality of the game.
I tried SOOSIZ as recommended by one of the unbiased reviewers. Now that game is awesome. It is a bit like classic Mario. I have played hours and hours on that game and not tired of it. It got me through the post office line before x-mas.
May the best apps survive.
