Stunning combat games like Infinity Blade and Avengers Alliance are nice and all, but they waste a lot of time in-between battles with exploration and poking at items. In Glu Mobile’s Dragon Slayer you slay dragons. That’s it.

You also upgrade and manage equipment and, in order to truly excel at the game, spend a large chunk of change on in-game currency, but those don’t take a large chunk of time, leaving you free to swipe at some truly impressive-looking specimens of dragon kind.

There are land-based dragons, air-based dragons and boss dragons so large you’ll wonder what sort of insane person your magic-wielding character is to dare to go up against them. Suspension of disbelief isn’t a big priority when death-by-dragon is on the table.

Sure, it’s a bit clone-y and simple and the pay wall is pretty steep, but Dragon Slayer is free and rather spectacular.

  • Where does all this dragon hate come from? I thought dragons were cute and friendly. Spyro, Puff? The Welsh dragon. Now they’re all evil? I’m sure some are bad tempered but come on, this is genocide.

    • Smaug and almost every dragon in the Forgotten Realms disagrees with you.
      Giant treasure hoarding wyrms that are only cute as a trophy above the fireplace of your inn after you retire as an adventurer.

    • Agreed… But it is nice to see Kotaku branch out from the usual App of the day being Apple only (considering that Android are the market leader globally)
