About the AppEdit
DragonVale is a simulation video game created by Backflip Studios for the iOS platform. It can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and played on the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. If you have an iPod touch 2nd generation or lower, Backflip has indicated they no longer offer update support, so player may have problems trying to update the game. It is also available via Google Play and played on Android devices. It was released in September 2011 and uses the freemium business model. Although the game is free to play, players can use their iTunes or Google Play account to make in-game purchases of game currency to help speed up the evolution of their dragon park.
DragonVale uses Apple, Inc.’s Game Center online multiplayer social gaming network to allow players to add friends, compete for high scores, exchange gem gifts in-game and visit other dragon parks. Players may also choose to connect with Facebook so that friends on Facebook with the DragonVale application will be identified as DragonVale friends.
On November 9, 2012, DragonVale was released for Android. Because it does not connect via Game Center, it can connect through Facebook.
Limitations on iOS DevicesEdit
Backflip Studios, the game developers, has the following information on their Help page:
"If you are playing on an iPod Touch 2nd Generation, please do not uninstall DragonVale. The update 1.12 was the last update available for iPod Touch 2nd Generation due to the technical limitations of the device. While you will still be able to play DragonVale and access your park, you will not be able to download new updates or content and if you uninstall the game, you will be unable to download the newest update."
Players create a dragon theme park similar to a zoo with the objective of attracting virtual park visitors, and increasing their level in the game. This is accomplished by breeding, raising and caring for magical dragons and decorating your park by adding walkways, trees, decorations, buildings and dragon habitats. The number of visitors who visit the park is dependent on the type and level of dragons in your park and how well designed it is. The ultimate game challenge is to breed a rare Rainbow Dragon.
