Dragonica Online is easy to pick up and play. Instructions are clear and information for the player is available by mousing over items or using the help file -- a journal that is accessible off the main user bar.  Movement, fighting, crafting are all easily learned and very intuitive. As a 3-D platforming game, players are able to move back and forth in a limited fashion as well as utilize jump-pads to leap from foreground areas to background areas. Graphics are soft but pleasing, with combat animations shown as unique and mostly humorous (warriors turn somersaults in the air when shot at by cannons). Kids will like that characters have emotes signs to make the game appealing. 

Features like owning pets and houses, cooking recipes, shopping in markets, and having friends add depth to the game. There is also a Player vs Player (PvP) system that is accessed from the game menu but is outside the game. There, players can choose from several game types and maps and fight against other players. Dragonica is free to play but monetizes in the fluff items like outfits and convenience items such as scrolls that will warp players to town instantaneously or health potions.

Online interaction: Kids can easily interact online on the forums as well as in open chat.  Children have to be 13+ to participate in the forums and in-game chat has a strong language filter. However, naughty players can frequently find creative ways to get around language filters.

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.
