I decided to write a review for this game since i played it awhile ago and my friend's started played it again..withought ruining the game too much..

Well, you play as a dragon, and your put into different situations. It is a side scroller game with minumal exploration. There are different endings depending on your action of your dragon in the game.

Only complaint i have about this game is it is TOO SHORT! I really wish it was longer..perhaps a sequel will be coming?

Recommended game that is short fun and sweet. Best game that has no text in it at all..story told thru pictures.

A wonderful, exciting platforming game - the kind of which there should be more like! Playing as the adorable dragon from hatchling, and as they grow, really makes this game take off! My only real complaint with this is that it ends so quickly - even after a good bit of getting lost, and simply goofing off as a baby/jouvenile dragon, what it offered came to a close much too quickly for this gamer. I would really like to see this expanded into a full-length game - expanding on choices you make throughout your journey, and even out into the surface world!

All in all, though, this was a very heartwarming - if, at times, challenging! - game, and I enjoyed most every moment of it.

I really liked the concept of this game and it's simplicity of gameplay! But I am rather sad it ended so soon.. But it probably wasn't a too easy project.
If you are a supporter of certain ideas on any level of skill, check this one out, I reccomend trying it out, and it is rather challenging too!
I would definately throw out another 10 euro for this game in order to see it develop with a longer story-line, or mayhaps a similar take in a newer version.
Dragons ftw!

A quite enjoyable little game that is a platformer that gives it's narration through it's art and the behaviors of the characters in place of blunt exposition, which I personally believe is more elegant.

Also it has dragons in it, how can you say no? Dragons are awesome.

I enjoyed this game and I'll probably revisit it a few times in the coming days to get all the achievments. Heres my personal breakdown of the game.

- The game does a fairly good job of creating a simple story with no real dialogue
- The 2D sprites are rather nice, and everything looks pretty good
- There is no filler to this game, no real padding. Everything that happens is there for a reason
- Your actions can actually influence (albeit slightly) the outcome of the game
- The fact that you grow as you gather powerups is a nice touch

- The flight mechinism takes a bit to get used to. If you try to 'flap' before you start the downward part of your arc in the air, you won't really get any height. I personally like this, because it makes you feel a bit more like you're actually controlling something thats flying rather then just a double-jump like most platformers. Still, some won't care for it, so I can't just list it as a 'pro'.
- I will admit... the main reason I bought this is because I LOVE games where you can play as a dragon. Not only play as one, but play as one thats not EVIL.
- While I admire the 2D sprites the hand drawn pictures are... meh. Certainly better then I can draw off hand but I feel that they could have been a bit more polished looking. They aren't poorly drawn or distracting but they're not fantastic either.


- Although there are no fillers, the game is very short. It took me about an hour to beat from start to finish. This is honestly the only thing that I found disapointing.
- It's not immeidatly obvious that you can effect the outcome of some situations. If it weren't for the fact there are achievments for it, I wouldn't have thought I could change anything.

Its not a perfect game but I'm very satisfied with it. Its fun, charming, and I hope the developer makes more dragonic games in the future.

Dragon’s Wake is a brief experience but by the end, I didn’t feel that my time or money was wasted. I finished the game in a single sitting and I imagine most people will do the same. I like to avoid bringing time and money into it and focus on the experience. If you were going into a café for the first time, you might be disappointed with how the coffee tastes. I’d say you’re far more likely to enjoy Dragon’s Wake than you are a coffee from an unknown barista and you’re looking at the same price for the experience.

Dragons Wake

If your a fan of dragons and I just love dragons, you will really enjoy this game.

You start out as a Fledgling (baby) dragon, that just hatched from his egg. This little guy is ever so hungry, so you must catch your prey and eat up. As you consume more food over time, the game will pause for a sec, and this means you are having a growth spurt. Look no more spoilers ok You'll just have to take my word for it that this game is fun and cute. The store page says it all really.


The game plays really well with an Xbox controller.


To me this game is worth the fullprice tag, its less than buying a cappuccino, and you can enjoy the
game anytime you like, your cappuccino is down the hatch in no time, and both cost the same.

Game also just got Trading cards added today. The cards are now active and dropping :)

Bottom line, if you like cute and you enjoy dragons, then give this game a go, what have you got to loose a few bobs $$$.

Absolutely amazing. Short, but it really does a good job in hitting you right in the feels. I enjoyed the story and artwork from beginning to end.

You understand what it's like to be foreign, as you understand a tribe of kobolds' basic gestures and grunts after quick thought. You adapt to their language and understand what a certain grunt means. You bond with them. And then you even get your own child to bond with.

But whether you lose your new-found family or child... It's all you. No one has any power over what happens but you. You must act quickly and cleverly to keep those you love safe. Whether you all survive, or if one sacrifice is made, or even if you're the last one standing, you must put an end to the knight who slays the misunderstood dragons.

Plus points because I'm a blue dragon and the main character you play is also blue.

The developer mentioned a sequel. I'm hyped and my wallet is READY.

The story of this game is heartbreaking it tells you the story about young dragon whose mother has been killed by knight. Then you find egg of an new dragon and you must protect and teatch it. This game is like crossover of Spyro the dragon and Skyrim and its awesome.

Gameplay is very smooth and graphigs are amazing. This game is one of my favourite puzzle games and it has potenttial to be the game of the year.

The game's graphics might put you off at first, but it doesn't make the gameplay less enjoyable, in fact the game is equipped with mechanics that are quite good. The only thing that dissapointed me was that it was pretty short for a game. There could have been more long boss fights that really challendged the player.

As it is currently, I would recommend it for someone who's looking for a quick game to beat.

This is a very sweet and charming game which attracted me simply because DRAGONS. I love the perspective it takes and the story it tells, it's a very refreshing angle for a storyline around dragons, and one of the only ones I've seen that explores this. It's a very tricky game that requires persistence, and it isn't very long, but I enjoyed it while it lasted and the differing endings are a nice touch.

It's well worth the money it costs, I'd buy it for everyone I know.

Neat idea, pretty fun, but very short. I'd really like to see a sequel.

I found the difficulty to be just right, even after making a certain choice that handicapped me toward the end.

It took me the longest time to decide whether or not I liked this game.
It's short and I felt like I wanted more, but it was consistently great.
I barely noticed the soundtrack, but it fits into the situations like melted butter.

It's a strange and short one, but it's unique and great throughout.

This is an utterly charming and enjoyable game, right up until the final boss. When you hit the final boss, the game spikes to absurd difficulty and ceases to be fun. I really want to recommend this game, but I can't, unless and until the final boss is scrapped and redone.
