Dragon Hunter II is a tower defense game that puts players in control of defending their castle from invading dragons. By uses different tools, Dragon Hunter II presents an interesting and fun experience for the genre.
Using a slightly simplistic visual style, Dragon Hunter II starts with giving players an archer who fires arrows at incoming dragons. With the touch screen, players control the angle and power of the arrows to hit the oncoming flying creatures.
The controls in Dragon Hunter II are very responsive and easy to use. Players have to be careful because as opposed to waves of dragons, they fly in packs consistently so careful aiming is necessary.
Dragon Hunter II includes more RPG elements by having a branching upgrade system for the castle, the archer, and even mages for extra defense. Killing dragons earns coins which are used for various upgrades as well as building new tools. Another interesting addition to Dragon Hunter II is the consumption of food by the archers. Players need to collect dead dragons for food to keep fighting and if there is no food, the game is over.
Players can upgrade to new arrows and recruit more assistance once enough coins are earned and the upgrade is purchased. Dragon Hunter II works well because the app has a good amount of depth beyond the defense gameplay.
Dragon Hunter II becomes addictive very quickly and RPG fans will enjoy the upgrade system.
