Pocket Gems’ has launched their hit title, War Dragons, for our beloved Android devices. The title boasts over 183 million battles fought and 13 million Dragons bred on those iOS devices out there and is pretty huge hit. War Dragons, in a nut shell, is a 3D real-time strategy game that puts you in control of a Dragon army. You will need to breed new Dragons, join forces with friends and build your fortress. I am completely comfortable admitting that the game caught my attention from their promo video, which, to say the least, is nothing short of awesome. Check it out.
I know you laughed the second that fire-breathing behemoth swooped in and lit the land on fire. Poor little Billy and Suzie. Be sure to check out the Dragon Days website for the back story on characters who met their demise before their show could really take hold.
The commercial, titled Dragon Days, takes viewers back to a simpler time when dragons and humans co-existed peacefully… and then burns it all to the ground. The tongue-in-cheek spot seamlessly contrasts the cheesy morning cartoon style of the ‘90s with War Dragons’ rich 3D graphics. Renowned animator, J.J. Sedelmaier, was chosen as the project’s creative director due to his sharp sense of humor and visionary comedic work. The commercial will begin airing nationally this month.
“Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to contrast the children’s programming we all grew up watching with the intensity of the gaming realm?! On top of that, this was a wonderful chance to combine two animation techniques that have been fighting each other for decades anyway,” said Sedelmaier.
There is a more, normal, launch video attached to the Play Store listing that gives a little game play action. This one just doesn’t make me smile as much.
War Dragon is a free-to-play title and is out now on Android. There are options to spend your hard-earned real-world money in-game as well as the chance to stick it to your iOS friends in combat. Snag it below when you get a chance.
