Product: Dawn of the Dragons
Developer: 5th Planet Games
Format: iPhone, iPad
Dawn of the Dragons started life as a browser-based MMORPG on PC, but it's been such a success - thanks to a robust showing on Facebook - that developer 5th Planet Games has ported it over to iOS.
The result won't entirely displease fans of the original, but newcomers may wonder what all the fuss is about.
The game offers a fairly typical RPG experience. You select an avatar and begin the story as a humble farmer, before being thrust into a magical battle between good and evil. Combat earns you experience points and gold, and it's possible to purchase new weapons and equipment to bolster your character's abilities.
Dawn of the Dragons has got the storytelling side of things well and truly sorted - it's just a shame that the action is so basic and the gameplay so reliant on the player pumping in real cash for in-game currency
