Players can play single player, local split-screen couch co-op (2 players) or online multiplayer (4 players) to complete 10-15 minute adventures in a non-linear order, which allows players to jump in for a quick fix or play multiple adventures over longer play sessions. Collect loot, level up, conquer enemies and become a master adventurer!

Become the ultimate Dungeon Master you always dreamed of being!




Fight The Dragon ships with a highly flexible in-game Adventure Construction Kit (ACK) that allows players to design, play and share their own adventures with other players on all platforms around the world.

The ACK (as is the gameplay) is designed to be as intuitive to use via a gamepad as it is via mouse and keyboard. Creators are able to sculpt and paint environments, place props, enemies, NPCs, Traps, checkpoints and other key game elements including hooking up basic logic systems for switches/gates and traps.

The Fight The Dragon community have already published over 1600 fantastic adventures, which means we have hundreds of hours of gameplay already created.

ACK FEATURES
  • Great assortment of Melee, Ranged and Mini-Boss Enemies
  • Large selection of textures to paint environments with
  • Static & Dynamic props including realtime lights, traps, bridges & more
  • Super intuitive editor allowing rapid design
  • In editor play testing at any time

Dragon Battle Arena




As heroes complete adventures and reach milestones, they earn tickets that allow them to go “Fight The Dragon” in the ultimate dragon battle arena.

Every player has their own dragon to fight, and each dragon has MEGA HP, so killing your dragon will require many encounters and a lot of skill. The damage you do to your dragon is persistent between play sessions, so collect as many tickets as you can and go battle it out! Each ticket grants the player 3 lives, but be warned, there are more ways to die in the dragon arena than just the dragon, so stay alert!

This game is pretty good for $15. You get to choose from 4 classes and you get a decent variety of gear as you go along. I like how your final goal is to defeat the dragon, but you can nip away at its health as you progress.
It's definitely worth the $15 in my opinion.

Hack and slash RPG with focus on community-created maps. Fun to play with friends.

The strong point on this game I think is the community maps--unlike Torchlight II, you can play the custom maps as soon as you finish the first level. The custom maps are very rich in varieties--ranging from simple hack and slash "kill the boss" map, to puzzle and crime investigation and campaign map. The great stuff is the community collaborates together in those custom maps, creating a series of maps with sequencial stories.

Here are a few examples of those:

It's a pretty fun game to play with friends, but it should be noted that the game itself is pretty barebone: albeit having diverse loot (which gives you some different ways of combat), there is no skill tree. You have skill progression but there is no branch. So with only four classes (Fighter, Rogue, Fire Mage, Ice Mage) there aren't much abilities to be invested in. Also, there is no main storyline as the game relies heavily on custom maps.

If you want a quick no-brainer hack and slash with very diverse levels and have several friends to play with, go get this game.

Another game that offers an addictive building mode, I played Fight the Dragon pretty heavily when I first got it. I became obsessed with the dungeon creator mode. I had even made the top 100 list at some point, which was pretty cool. After I created my King George dungeon, I lost interest. That's par for the course with me, though, and not a complaint about the game. I play obsessively until I've had enough, then break for a while. But if you like games with creative modes, then you'll probably enjoy Fight the Dragon.

The game has more to offer than just the creative mode, but that's what I was there for. :)

Fight the Dragon is a hack and slash RPG that is clearly made by people who love the genre. It takes gameplay elements of games like Torchlight 2 and combines them with a level creation system that reminds me of a cross between Little Big Planet and Minecraft.

The game starts at your house where you can manage characters and access things like the level creator or user adventures. Once in the game you fight off monsters, find keys, and pull levers to reach the end. As you play your character gains levels, skills, and tons of loot. You will constantly be scouring the ground for helmets, armor, weapons, and more.

Damage is done with a primary weapon of choice, a heavy attack, or class specific skills.
All skills and items carry over between levels and every adventure scales with you so whether you play a an adventure for the first time at level one or replay it at level 5, it’s still fun and challenging.

The level editor or "Adventure Construction Kit", feels like a 3d modeling program and is simple yet deceptively powerful. You can place monsters, traps, treasure, and sculpt the landscape as you see fit.

I loved this game and can’t wait for more.

I'm long overdue to post a review for this game. Why have I waited so long? Because I've been having so much fun playing and creating, I hardly use my spare time for anything else! I think it's an outstanding, highly entertaining game! The community-generated "adventures" make this game virtually unlimited in it's original gameplay content.

I should also add that I'm new to both the Hack & Slash and RPG genres...they just never appealed to me before. I bought this game because I think the devs are fantastic, having played both Cubemen and Cubemen 2, but I wasn't sure I would care for it that much. Boy, was I wrong to even think that! Now, I'm completely hooked and having a great time playing, interacting with the community in sharing/playing adventures, and in creating my own. The built in Adventure Construction Kit (ACK) is quite sophisticated yet easy to use. You can be building and publishing great-looking adventures in a fairly short amount of time.

So whether you're a seasoned pro in Hack n Slash and RPG games, or new to the genre as I was, I'm confident you're going to enjoy this game. If the current "Early Access" state is a concern for you, don't let it be. I would consider this a complete game...that just keeps getting better with each update, as cool new features are added on a regular basis.

Now it's time to go back and conquer more "worlds" as I add to the already 450+ hours I've got in this game! That in itself should tell you quite a bit about how I feel about Fight the Dragon.

Fight The Dragon is a simple, community-driven dungeon crawler for up to 4 players, populated with maps designed by the players themselves. There are twelve customizable character slots, and four classes to choose from, each with different weapon proficiencies and four unique abilities: the fighter, the rogue, the ice wizard, and the pyromancer. If you've played a fantasy-themed game before, those classes shouldn't be unfamiliar. The playstyles are all a tad different, but early on, it becomes quite apparent that ranged combatants are considerably easier to play, and arguably more effective as well.

The look of the game is a bit classic. It isn't voxel, and it has smooth textures, but the shapes of the in-game models look quite crude in a few cases. Controls are fairly simple, and the mechanics of the game will come naturally to anyone who is familiar with the genre. The gameplay itself is smooth, if a tad unbalanced; it's rather easy for a map designer to make an area too difficult, whether intentionally or not, by saturating it heavily with certain, more powerful monsters. A good example is a trio of enemy pyromancers- they deal so much damage in such a short time that they will instantly kill you with fireballs and pillars of flame if you stand still for more than a thoughtful moment. Loot appears rather frequently, so it isn't too difficult to find a decent set of gear that compliments how you choose to play. A feature called the 'Loot Shrine' acts as an alternative to the typical store you'd find in the 'safe zone' of a dungeon-crawling RPG. Rather than buying and selling items, the game allows you to 'donate' all of your gold and unwanted gear for a chance at progressively better loot- the more you donate, the better the rewards, which come in the form of rare armor and weapons, extra stat points, increased inventory space, or other miscellaneous character upgrades. Although the game offers you three choices (typically one item and two 'other'), the choices are completely randomized, so you may end up finding some unattractive offers when you decide to cash out. I find this feature to be a refreshing change from the norm, and i've abused it quite a lot in my own time playing.

The gimmicks that make FtD stand out from similar titles are it's trademark Adventure Creation Kit, and the titled battle against the Dragon. The Adventure Creation Kit(ACK) allows a player to construct a dungeon, then play in it against his own creation, or upload it to the server to share with friends or the community as a whole. The ACK is very user-friendly, and it's fun to play with. The design options that it gives you allow you to make maps of all sizes, or even chain multiple dungeons together to create a full campaign with multiple levels. The designer truly allows for an impressive amount of customization and creativity.
Fighting the Dragon, as many would assume from the title, is an integral part of the game. At any time, provided your character has recieved a Dragon Scroll by completing a dungeon, you may challenge the dragon arena. The Dragon itself is extremely strong; with a massive, constant HP pool and tons of damage output, he's an extremely tough opponent, only killable with determination and lots of patience (and Dragon Scrolls). Each scroll you use gives you three lives to deal as much damage as possible to the Dragon, before inevitably getting massacred and sent packing back into the player-made dungeons. Fortunately, the Dragon's health bar is consistent through attempts, so the damage you deal in each battle will carry over to the next time. Each time you reach a certain point of progress(by consistently putting tiny dents in his health), you will get a shiny red piece of Dragon loot that has a very special effect, but will disappear after you've used it for a certain time. I find that these two features really do make the game a special one, and it allows the player to take a much-needed break from the constant loot grind.

Overall, the game is put together well, and only suffers from a few minor bugs and glitches. The biggest issue I have with the game is a lack of balance and character development; aside from getting a new ability at level 5, 10, 15, etc., your gear makes your character what it is, and there is very little variance between two characters of the same class. Ranged weapons and kiting tactics seem to be the way to go most of the time, especially when the difficulty ramps up so quickly in most cases. The enemies deal a legitimately high amount of damage per attack, and some fights can cost the players a few lives before they can get a grasp on the situation. Aside from those few complaints, however, this is a gem of a game, would recommend to fans of the genre and RPGs in general.

Appearance: 3.5/5, basic textures, mostly attractive, sounds get repetitive and could have more variety.
Controls: 4.5/5, easy to pick up and play, mechanics aren't too hard, everything works how it should.
Gameplay: 4/5, bugs are few and far between, the ACK is fun, character building could use more options.
Replayability: 4/5, the ACK keeps the game fresh, but enemies get a bit repetitive.
Overall: 4/5, a good, solid dungeon crawler with some fun gimmicks and extra tools to make the game unique.

Gauntlet with a neverending array of levels at your disposal and that my friends is a good thing indeed. There's a big dragon that needs slaying that serves as a progress marker of sorts.

Once you become strong enough to put out that fire in his belly... then you got to fight 2 dragons and a juggling bear on a tricycle. It never ends.

Posted: April 2, 2014
With the help of a robust, user-friendly adventure map creation tool and an already very active and tight-nit community, Fight the Dragon is an incredibly addictive social interaction unlike anything I've seen on Early Access.. or Steam in general for that matter.

Even in it's earliest form it already has a massive set of tools allowing anyone of virtually any skill level to create whatever is in their head from dark mines to open snowing forests, the variety here presented only in it's first week is enough to give every aspiring map creator the ability to conjure up something totally unique and special from one another. And this isn't taking into account the almost weekly updates the game will be receiving, already one in it's first week adding two entirely new sections of props to diversify your creations with. In short, map making is extremely addictive, often time consuming, and in the end EXTREMELY rewarding.

The gameplay itself is very fun and straightforward, almost arcade-y in a Gauntlet sort of way moreso than how modern grindy ARPGs of today play. There's already a great loot system in place that scales to your level (max 30 currently), with legendary and rare items to find that give you additional stat boosts and sometimes elemental attacks. The adventures themselves are all user-generated (outside of a small handful of high-quality maps created by the develepor to show off what you can make), which is awesome for both the person exploring levels and the people creating maps, because everyone gets a fair chance at having what they made getting played. There is one other mode, a really cool concept which the game gets it's name from where you fight a dragon in an arena with a ridiculous amount of health (millions). Killing the dragon in one, or even dozens of tries is impossible so you'll have to earn Dragon Tickets by completing Adventure maps created by the community in order to keep chipping away at it's health. There are currently no end-game rewards for the dragon that I know of (to be honest, it's so tough I don't think it's even been beaten by more than a few people yet) but it already has a leaderboard to rank you against other players based on damage done. I can't wait to see where this mode goes.


These are only the basics really, the game has so much to do already and there's a lot more to come. If you're at all interested in creating worlds or playing other peoples' then check this out and come by the community hub, the community is very active and the developer is amazingly responsive to feedback and questions!

Great game, great premise, but one very huge flaw in its design. The game is based around player created adventures but lacks a fair implementation of advertising any new adventures.

Searching for adventures at first glaces seems to be very complex but after a while you you notice a poor design choice. Only the top 24 adventures will ever be displayed in a search, no matter how many tags you select. What does this mean? Only adventures with a high rating will ever be visible to other players to play, meaning, your new maps will never get a chance to be played unless someone searches for it by name. You can search for Easy, Medium, Hard, or Extreme adventures, but you will never see any adventures that are 25th+ place. Yeah there is a search for newly created adventures, but that category only shows adventures that haven't been played once. Once someone plays it, your adventure is now unsearchable. There is a category for weekly, monthly, and featured adventures but those will always display the same 24 adventures in the category, most of which are the same adventures. Since I have been playing, no new maps were added to featured (about 2 months). There is an option to play a random adventure, but that only selects an adventure you haven't played yet in one of the top 24 adventure categories, only playing a truly random map after those have been exhausted.
