By pairing simple combat puzzle mechanics with elements from the titular franchise, the people behind this game have made something that's fun for fans of both. In DreamWorks Dragons: Titan Uprising -- which is connected to both the How to Train Your Dragon movies and the DreamWorks Dragons cartoon -- you have to move a gem so it lines up with two or more of the same kind of gem. This causes your dragon of that color to attack whatever enemy dragon happens to be positioned above the rows where you made the connection. This also fills your dragon's attack meters, giving you occasional access to their special attacks. Though unlike most match-3 puzzle games, rounds end when you defeat all your enemies, instead of fulfilling some condition or obligation.

This also has you training and leveling up your dragons so they can defeat stronger enemies, as well as managing your roster like you're the coach of a sports team...if all the players were flying lizards. Granted, the game's depth does make this a little complicated at first, when you're learning all the mechanics, but it also does a decent job of explaining itself. In the end, by combining those deep mechanics with the characters and lore from the films and movies, DreamWorks Dragons: Titan Uprising ends up being as fun for fans of the franchise as it is for those into combative match-3 puzzle games.
