Dreamworks brings the exciting world of Dragon Adventures to Windows Phone

Dragon Adventures

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is well underway in cinemas, but Windows Phone owners are now able to transform the real world into the fantasy realm they know and love from the films. DreamWorks Dragons Adventure is a new game that really lets the player immerse themselves in a world with dragons and there are some neat graphics and animations to boot. Previously available for the Lumia 2520, it's now out for Lumia Windows Phone owners.

The goal of the game is to essentially train your dragon, rescue captured dragons from the evil dragon Trappers (enough dragons for you yet?) and explore. There are multiple regions of the world to visit and play through, each sporting unique quests that need to be completed. Different terrain, objects, and weather brings the game alive and prevents it from becoming stale quickly. What's more is players are encouraged to leave the house and play while on the go.

Dragon Adventures

It's a super cool concept and one we strongly recommend everyone check out, even if you're not a fan of the films. Unfortunately for those wielding hardware with 512MB of RAM, Dragons Adventure requires 1GB. Even with the more advanced Windows Phones we experienced some performance issues and some lengthy loading times. Beware!

Also, did we mention this game was a Windows exclusive title? It's also possible to use the companion app to start up quests and more. Overall, it's a really nice experience. The game supports the Lumia 2520, 1520, 1020, Icon, 928, 925 and the recently announced Lumia 930, as well as all Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets.

Its a more or less complete revamp of the original buggy one that came pre-installed with the 2520.  Hopefully they've worked out the annoying bugs

In that case, you should've gone for 525 assuming you're a core gamer (But I think it MIGHT have not been launched by the time you purchased the 620, right?)

Pete here from Microsoft. The game producer uses a 920 as his daily driver so we are right there with ya! We wanted to be sure we nailed the performance on the 920 first. It's looking good so you will see it soon.

Can't play on my surface 2☹ don't want to play on my Lumia 1520. The screen is still too small for entertainment

The app description states that it is only available for select Nokia devices, so it is not available for Surface pro. I know not why it's not available for 920 but perhaps it's the age of this handset that excludes it.

Technically the game supports all Windows Phone devices with at least 1 GB. Not only those listed there ...

Why it is compatible with L925 and not with L920 is beyond me. They had melted the plastic faster than aluminium while playing this game :) ?

Why the hell Nokia Lumia 1320 is not supported...it is better than 925 & 928.....add support.....or remove this shit

I have to admit to feeling a little awkward being a grown man and having them ask for my parents email to unlock a character. Am I too old for this game? :)
