Here’s a fairly unique, feature-filled game that makes full use of the Nintendo DS’ touchscreen technology. You make your dragon fly by tapping the beast twice and you can breathe fire by rubbing the stylus between his wings. Then, you can point to where you want the flames to go. You make your creature more powerful by defeating dragons by using the four elements and then collecting those powerful gems when your oppontent expires. Along the way, you get more body parts to customize your dragon. Because this game is on the DS, which doesn't have much memory, you’ll find the cut scenes are often repetitious. Otherwise, you get a beautifully drawn action game that includes multiplayer with four friends in tournament mode.
