“Hungry Dragon“ is a game. It’s about a dragon. That is hungry. And that is about all the setup you’d need.
Yes, this is yet another game from the notorious “eat everything in your path” mini-genre (or, if you prefer it that way, an eat them up game). You begin your journey as an adorable little dragon, not larger than some birds, and at the beginning, you can just eat fish, spiders and other creatures smaller than yourself in one bite. You can try and take down sheep, lions, and even humans but they are all much sturdier and take more than a single bite.
As you eat more, you grow in size and so do your appetites. Once your dragon grows to its full size, you get to exchange it for a larger creature, provided that you are willing to pay some gold for it. Along with you, your world grows and expands. And, what a beautiful world that is. After all, this is a Ubisoft game, and as such, it has that level of fine final polish that makes you feel as if you are playing something more than just a plain mobile game.
The controls are simple as well – tap left to eat, tap right for boost. And, speaking of boosts, one of the things that make this game stand out from the masses a bit is the fact that you can take pets to fly along with you. These creatures give you different boosts. And, once again, the larger you are, the more pets can tag along with you. Another incentive to keep playing is the fact that you can get different costumes and a possibility of completing various missions. If you do not want to pay, you’ll have to wait some time between different missions, otherwise, they’ll be unlocked with no cool down period in between.
That is all there is to “Hungry Dragon”. It is not a revolutionary game by any means, and there are many games that have pretty much the same game mechanics as this one. On the other hand, it looks, sounds and plays much better than most of the competition, so if these games are your cup of tea, “Hungry Dragon” just might be the game for you.
