We’re always eager to check out top-down shooters so when I saw Dragon Flight and realized it was attached to a Freemium pricing model my curiosity was aroused.
Where do I begin…Dragon Flight is technically a top down shooter that has you shooting at enemies. Now unlike other shooters, there’s only one type of enemy (it does change color) and it doesn’t even shoot back at you. Oh yeah, there’s meteors that fly by as well. So…
The whole thing about Dragon Flight is seeing how far you can fly and this is done by ramping up how many hits each enemy (and remember these guys only fly in a straight line and won’t attack you in any which way) to be destroyed. If you can’t destroy it and clear a path then it’s game over. This is where leveling up comes into play as well as brining in the Freemium. The more you level up, the more powerful you’ll become which translates to each enemy needing less hits. If you want to level up fast then you can spend some money. However, the surprising thing is that Dragon Flight gives you enough free points where you actually don’t need to spend a dime! So in this case, the Freemium model isn’t a rip off. Here’s the thing, Dragon Flight is awful and it requires practically no skill at all…only your time.
The Bottom Line: 1/10 (Abysmal)
Dragon Flight manages to be even less entertaining than those annoying flash ads that test how many times you can swat at a fly.
