Calling All Dragon Riders:
Want to know what we liked (and didn’t like) about all this fantasy fighting? Check out our Mark of the Dragon review!

Mark of the Dragon from Gamevil is a strategy/battle game that plays similarly to Clash of Clans. There’s one twist, however: you can breed dragons and raise them to be rideable war machines. Not surprisingly, this small gameplay tweak is pretty cool.

But fighting isn’t easy – even when you’re commanding things from the back of a giant lizard. Here are some tips and tricks to help you succeed in the dragon war.


 

Keep the Home Base Safe and Stocked

  • Guard your eggs – Dragon eggs are arguably your most valuable resource in Mark of the Dragon. They take time and effort to breed and hatch, and the resulting offspring forms the backbone of your assault force. Other players can steal eggs during a raid, so defend them accordingly. Build walls around your nest, and put weapons nearby.
  • Upgrade your resource depots ASAP – Upgrading the most important structures in your base, like your headquarters, requires a lot of resources – more than you can hold when you first begin playing the game. It’s extremely important to upgrade your resource depots whenever possible so you can amass the iron and wood necessary for major building projects.
  • Raids provide tons of resources – Low on wood or iron? Mark of the Dragon’s single-player campaign provides opportunities to score tons of resources. Get out there!

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Fans of ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ will be excited to hear DreamWorks Animation has released their first interactive story app, DreamWorks Press: Dragons, based off the movie. The app will include the film’s main characters, Toothless and Hiccup, and allows users to train their own dragons! The story begins with Hiccup and Toothless finding the main character lost at sea with no memory of their past. The reader must take on the role of the main character as they teach their dragon to defend Berk, explore new lands, and guide their character through an epic journey of self discovery.

This story is part one of a series, with later chapters coming out this fall. The app is designed for readers ages 5 and under, 6 to 8, and 9 to 11 years old with scaling reading levels. DreamWorks Press’ Head of Publishing, Emma Whittard, said “I am tremendously proud of our debut story app. It truly is an interactive experience and puts the reader in the center of the story.”

DreamWorks Press: Dragons is available on the App Store for $4.99, and later chapters will be $0.99.
