5.0 out of 5 stars This brings back memories... December 26, 2010
Verified Purchase
I always loved CYOA stories as a kid, so this let me relive my childhood a little. The difference, though, is that you get to customize almost everything about your dragon self (Name, scale color, gender, etc.)! Your stats change depending on how you handle a situation and those same stats can determine the amount of success for an action you pick (I had enough Disdain to ignore an effigy, but not enough Cunning to create a perfect magical trap to protect my hoard). This was quite fun, and I can't wait to 'play' it again.

EDIT: Please note, this is a role-playing story. While I love this kind of thing, your results may vary. It IS a little on the short side for a $5 price tag on the first run-through, but I think the replay potential for different endings makes up for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too little content December 21, 2010
This game is fun, but ends too quickly. For $5, I expected a lot more content... I completed it 3 times in 3 different ways in less than an hour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and easy diversion December 25, 2010
By A Customer
This is a fun game to play that I would recommend to anyone who loves choose-your-own-adventure books. Your choices affect the gameplay to a degree though the overall story progresses to a similar end regardless of the choices you make. I first discovered this game online at the Choice of Games website where it can be played for free, but I gladly purchased it for my Kindle so I can play on the go. I only gave it 4 stars though because, while enjoyable, this game lacks the depth and complexity of other games available from this company and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining December 18, 2010

I have not played this long but so far, I think it is fun and entertaining. The writing is witty and the choices you make can result in unexpected twists and turns which makes it more interesting. I think it is worth $4.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting & Good For a Giggle At Times February 11, 2011
By JwB
I had played this game online so when I saw it on kindle for an inexpensive price, I had to get it.

This isn't classic literature put into game form. Nor is it something designed to tax your brain. It's a cute little interactive game where you are a dragon and the choices with each turn decide ultimately whether you end the game poverty stricken, lonely and with no tasty princesses to chow down on or wealthy, with a mate and a supply of plump juicy royalty to nosh on at your leisure.

It's cute, it has part that make me laugh and it passes a few minutes. Plus, I have a 16 year old son who is mentally challenged and he can play this which is a major added bonus as so many of the games take strategy and logic skills. This one just involves making choices in questions and he loves it and it makes him laugh. For that, I'd have paid much more.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Amusing Diversion January 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a "Choose Your Own Adventure"-type game with some roleplaying elements. You play as a dragon through a number of scenarios on your way to dominating the lands around you. The game keeps track of your stats, such as your brutality, cunning, and vigilance, and these stats are determined based on your choices throughout the game. At the end, you are presented with a summary including your "character sheet."

The story itself is humorous and enjoyable, and I had a lot of fun the first time I went through it. It was an entertaining diversion and worth the $0.99 sale price. However, I don't think it has enough replay value to be worth its full price. The second playthrough was not nearly as interesting and I probably won't play it again.

This kind of interactive fiction is a great idea though, and I would love to see more intricate and involved stories like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very cool game January 16, 2011
By A Customer
I recently got this game, and I have already played it three times. Every time, it ended differently. You have to make wise choices on what you do, and that changes what happens. The endings got better for me every time I played. I think it was because I learned what could happen if I made a certain choice, and decided to try something different every time. This a really fun and unique game, and I think that it is worth the money. I would recomend getting it while it is on sale through January 31.
