Neat graphics, decent game play, simple controls
Too easy, very common, bores you really quickly
DragonVale for Android is a charming children's app that's all about breeding and evolving a dragon theme park. Hatch eggs, feed your critters until they grow up to be big and strong, and evolve your magical domain to the delight of happy visitors. This one is simple but enjoyable.
DragonVale is a wholly kid friendly game of dragon breeding. There's no real battles or violence to speak of, just the pure joy of building and evolving a tourist friendly theme park, populated with an array of colorful and cool dragons. You can breed various dragons to come up with new and interesting species to hatch. Nurture your young-ins, feed them yummy goodies and watch them frolic and play, cuz dragons are just big, fire breathing puppy dogs. You can also place structures to build and evolve your theme park and make it an enticing place to visit for these renaissance looking patrons. The play is very charming and sweet, though perhaps a tad boring for more seasoned players.
The controls use screen taps and swipes to deliver the goods, and all was copacetic. The graphics are very rich and vibrant, brimming with pops of color and saturation that imbue the game with a Saturday morning cartoon look and feel. The animation is simple but renders well and delivers some modest intrigue. The sounds are decent, but the repetitive score does grate on the nerves before long.
DragonVale is a quality kid's game that's sure to entertain. It’s free to play, but there are plenty of paid upgrades your child is sure to want.
