App Art Favorites - Dragon Story

Team Lava studios are known for there fun and vibrant apps. Games such as Dragon Story and Bubble Mania completely envelope the player in atmospheric music, simulation game play, and a social network of safe and helpful 'neighbors' that love the game as much as you do (a BIG selling point for me)!

Dragon story in particular is an app that I started about three years ago and haven't stopped loving all this time. Like Oregon Trail: American Settlers, the app is cloud protected (at least on kindles), so I have been able to stop and start where I left off as many times as I need, without the fear of loosing my data.

Another plus is, it's the sort of game that you can play with or without social connections. By joining gaming groups on Facebook, or looking up discussion boards, a player can find other players willing to have neighbors and start getting connected. The positive about this buddy system is that no information can be passed from one person to another. All dialogue and gifts are structured by pre-developed in-game options. Its safe for kids and adults.

Now about the artwork! This is what keeps me coming back. Dragon Story is a visual feast for the eyes. The entire game is based on the ongoing creativity of the developers. Dragons are offered in a variety of colors and designs, based off of things we see in the real world, as well as in folklore and fairy tales. See what I mean below!

While I have had an overall great experience with this game, there are a couple of things that get my goat. One, the amount of goals available are overwhelming. I can't keep track of all of them, so I have literally given up on any storyline prospects. Two, its sometimes difficult to move items around to the other surrounding islands. I hope they can fix those problems soon!
