Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon was left to spread its wings on the App Store on 1st of August, we’re now nearing the end of August and its time for a review. It’s not my usual type of game but it’s something that’s had me enthralled for most of this month which was shock number one. Shocks are something that Kambam, creators of the game have done well with this title. They’ve moved what was an online based game into a neat mobile game.
At first it does seem that the game has just been taken from the web and but onto your mobile device, but it’s once you start to play it and get immersed in to the story and the game play that it’s much more than that. Kabam have tried to make sure that we the players are getting the luxuries of the web based game, but on the go. For me building the city that you are given was great, you can have things where you want and with the room for expansion through leveling up the possibilities are endless. I like all my farms in one area, as well as my quarry’s in another, it was all very regimental.
The world map is huge too! Once you’ve trained an army you can send them out to explore and conquer the map. Certain places like forests yield rewards such as an efficiency on wood collection. Others only offer the promise of a fight. Buildings such as garrisons are key and the more you have the better, and with eleven different troop types you’ll not be short of combinations to make within your army.
The main story however revolves around the dragon egg that you the player are entrusted with. The dragon, once hatched will become the guardian of the city and again through leveling up can become stronger and make the ground as well as the skies yours to command.
Dragons of Atlantis doesn’t have to be too serious though, you can have a small laugh with a few changes. Prime example the name of your Dragon, I personally went for John. John the Dragon, fear him or perish. Another thing that makes the game that little bit more fun, in a social way is the Alliances that you can make or join. Each alliance in Dragons of Atlantis are ranked and have one controlling member who can keep the group up to date with whereabouts of enemy camps on the map or just about anything else. At fist I couldn’t see the point of the Alliances but it has grown on me.
As with most free games there are in store purchases that can be made in the form of Ruby’s. Ruby’s can speed up the building process or the training of troops as well as help you out with emergency resources.
Overall I’ve enjoyed the game, it’s been interesting and it’s always a good thing when you enjoy a game you wouldn’t normally go for and that’s why I would recommend this to everyone because you never know, you may just like it as well.
If you’ve played the game the game let me know what you think. And if you haven’t played it yet come back later and tell me what you think. As always leave your thoughts in the comments below!
