Review Dragon Coins

Jay Feldman
6.4Good
Decent animation, neat graphics
Uninteresting, monotonous game play
Dragon Coins for Android is a flashback to my old arcade days. It's basically Coin Dozer with a modern twist.
Once upon a time, there were places called Arcades where kids would go and spend all their allowance, one quarter at a time. Back then, we had to play standing up - eek! - and game consoles were actually humongous video displays that ate children's quarters and kept them hostage while parents scoured the mall, frantically searching for them. But I digress. Point is, Dragon Coins is brought to you by Sega, who I believe invented the original Coin Dozer.
Dragon Coins adds some modern twists, but it's essentially the same game I remember as a kid, just without real money. There's a bunch of coins on a ledge and you have to strategically drop more coins into the mix, hoping that piles of loot fall into their respective slots and you win big. In the original game, kids were tempted with the promise of winning easy money and a booty of loose quarters that could be pumped back into games you really wanted to play, like Pac Man. But in this modern twist, Coin Dozer is actually the star.
There's loads of power ups and goofy characters. This game looks more like a Saturday morning cartoon. Think Power Rangers meets Coin Dozer. I appreciate the attempt at a modern twist, but the game is needlessly bogged down by too much redundancy. I suspect it's because Coin Doze was never meant to be a real video game. It was just for suckers who literally wanted to toss quarters away for no reason or return - just the hope of winning more coins. Kinda sounds like Vegas for kids. So there was really nothing there to begin with, as far as any real game to be played. And I'd say this app suffers from the same problem, just with more flash and pizzazz.

Resume

Dragon Coins is clean and snappy, it's just not really much fun or about anything interesting; just like it's decades old predecessor. Kids might like all the visual stimuli, but that's about it.
