Summary: I researched DS games for hours before settling on this one for my 8 year old son. He loves Lego but I felt this game had more to offer than the Lego DS games. This is his first DS game and I chose it because it had all the things he enjoys about Dragonvale for iphone... Gathering money, buying a dragon, armor, upgrading the armor and all the while still working on completing the missions. I am more that pleased with this game.
Summary: My 7 year old son loves this game and it has been his favorite for many months now. Many games lose their appeal very quickly but not this one. It is simple enough so he does not get too frustrated but interesting enough to keep him coming back for more. You can buy new equipment so there is a point to the money you earn in the game.
Wholesome game for kids, very similar to Playmobil Pirates
4 July 2011
Summary: I bought this game after really enjoying Playmobil Pirates - they are very similar. It seemed the Pirates game had a better storyline with funnier dialogue and action. But, they are both great games for kids. The length, like Pirates, is fantastic too - it took several hours to beat the game. A good buy for sure!
Summary: My 7 year old got a DS for Xmas and I had no idea what sort of games to get him. This was one of them. He loves Playmobil, Knights and his DS so this was perfect for him. He found it easy to play so there were no tears or screaming saying "I cant do it" which is my nightmare when buying games for him. This is one of his favourites.
Summary: This game was excellent. I am an 9 year old boy. You need to be able to read to enjoy this game because the instructions for the missions come up on the screen in writing. Also the characters talk to each other using speech bubbles and not sound. There is just backbround music. I loved collecting the coins to buy new dragons and weapons. When you complete some of the missions you unlock new parts on the map.
Summary: Bought game for our 5 year old little boy - he is just learning to play these games - seems to enjoy it but is only learning to read so requires adult assistance - that's if the adults know how these type of games work ! Looks a good game once we work it out !
