"Eat 'em up" game easy to learn, but very shallow play.

Is It Any Good?

It's hard not to love a dragon, and kids will surely have fun gobbling up everything in sight, even though the amusement of the game wears off pretty quickly. Hungry Dragon is certainly visually appealing and will lure kids who can't get enough of the How to Train Your Dragon films (though it's not related to that series). And the gameplay is fun in short bursts. But there's really nothing new here that anyone who has played another "hungry creature" game hasn't seen before. You move around the screen, avoid obstacles and chomp smaller creatures while avoiding larger creatures that might try to swallow your dragon. That's really all the gameplay consists of, which makes it easy to grasp, but there's not a ton of depth here.

At least the game doesn't shove ads or in-app purchases down players throats, which is a welcome relief these days. And it's certainly a good time killer. It would have been nice, though, to see the concept of Hungry Dragon taken further with more complexity, some challenge, or additional content to keep you playing once the gimmick wears off.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
