People say mobile games can be addictive, but that’s not true for all games. Not every game is that entertaining to have you hooked for hours. However, some definitely are, and Merge Dragons is one of them.
Many players of the game say that the game is super fun but also time-consuming as they have spent hours on it in a day. While it’s important to keep a check on playing games for hours if you’re looking for something fun yet challenging to play, Merge Dragons is the answer.
So Merge Dragon is basically an adventure puzzle game where you solve puzzles to move ahead. But they are not really difficult puzzles, it’s more like combining stuff to make even better stuff.
The game is set in the mystical world of Dragonia. Of course, as the name suggests, there are dragons in this game. However, there’s a lot of other stuff as well. The idea is to protect the world of Dragonia by building camps and growing dragons and other stuff.
Now, how does it really work? You basically just have to combine similar stuff to make even better stuff. For example, there are three plants. When you combine them, you get something even better: a flower.
It works in a similar fashion for other things, including dragons. When you merge three dragons, you get a bigger and more powerful dragon. Similarly, you can also merge dragon eggs.
In a way, it’s similar to Candy Crush. In fact, it’s similar in more than one way, as Candy Crush was also described as a highly addictive mobile game.
The gameplay is almost never-ending as there are many camps and over 1600 objects spread over 180+ levels. Dragonia is massive, so you can keep on going, finding mystical creatures and merge those that are typical to get something even better.
Dragons are more long-lasting in comparison with other objects, as you can combine them later to make them even powerful. Essentially, you want to merge more dragons, as other objects are auxiliary to these dragons.
You can also invite your friends to join in for the quests and build camps together.
Drawbacks for Merge Dragons
The game is great in terms of gameplay and graphics. However, there are drawbacks to playing it.
The number one drawback is that it is, indeed, addictive. You start playing it and before you know it, you’re completely hooked on it. It’s not like you’ll end up playing it all day long, but it will take some time of your day.
Now, it’s fine if you’re not doing anything and just killing time by playing this game. However, don’t let it become a distraction for work and personal time.
Secondly, the game is built around in-app purchases. So you will be prompted for a lot of purchases like special camps or gems.
There’s a way to find enjoy the game in a controlled way by switching to PC instead of mobile. Since there’s no PC or Mac version of the game, you can play Merge Dragons on PC using an Android emulator like Nox Player.
All you have to do is download the game from the Play Store within the emulator. You will have to log in with a Google account. Alternatively, you download the APK file of the game to your PC and move it to the emulator.
Merge Dragons is a fun game with interesting gameplay and hundreds of levels to complete. If you have money to spend, you can also buy stuff to get ahead and score. But even without that, the game is fun to play when you have nothing better to do.
