Dragonica is a popular 3D multiplayer online game available in Asia, Europe, and North America. It is also known as The Dragon Saga in North America. This is a beautifully rendered free-to-play side scrolling game with a huge teen and adult following. The game’s storyline follows the typical fairy tale theme of previously defeated dark forces reassembling in preparation to unleash more terror and destruction.
The game takes place on fantasy continents of Angrakka and El Grego also known as Melanthos and Elyades in the European version. The continents had previously enjoyed a golden age of prosperity and peace with humans living in harmony with dragons. Expectedly, war broke out during the Dragon Age leading to a banishment of all dragons to the Aether realm.
However, the dragons led by their leader Elga continued to attack humans until they were defeated by five heroes. Elga was confined in a dark prison called Shadow Cabinet. After a thousand years, Elga has somehow found a way to unleash his dark forces into the world again. It is now the responsibility of the game players to arm themselves and repel the evil forces.
One of the great features of Dragonica is its 3D plane which gives players the ability to move on a horizontal axis. It is a side-scrolling game with limited vertical movements. The North American version has 75 levels while the version hosted on Asian servers has up to 80 levels. The game’s combat action happens in real time with players using special skill sets to make ground and aerial attacks. Players can also take the role of a healer or supporter depending on the circumstances.
Another great feature of Dragonica is its numerous missions and other options such as a wide range of scenarios. It also features several classes such as warrior, archer, thief, magician, twin-fighter, and shaman classes. The players initially choose from six classes and progress by accumulating levels and acquiring more skills.
Compared to other similar online games such as World of Warcraft, MythWar Online, and The Sims, Dragonica is rated higher due to its functionality, appearance, and ease of use. It is easier to understand and play unlike games such as World of Warcraft which come with intricate and at times difficult to execute moves. Dragonica has a greater number of missions in comparison to other similar games.
Dragonica is an interesting free online game with a cash shop where players can buy unique customizations for their characters. It currently has four free expansions which are optional. Fans of fairy tale games will find this free game very entertaining.
