The description of School of Dragons

This game is based on the first part of the movie series How to Train Your Dragon. You can see here all the characters from there, and you go through the scenario along with the main heroes - Hiccup and Astrid. You play as an additional character which wasn’t in movies and choose all his or her features to your liking (hairstyle and color, eyes, clothes, etc.). You are the student and Hiccup is your teacher, he tells you what to do at the beginning of the game, and at the end, you become a real Viking with your own pet dragon.

Storyline 8/10

School of Dragons is a quest and RPG in one because you have to travel to different locations, talk to people and fulfill their requests. Each time you finish something important you can see another clip from How to Train Your Dragon. For example, when you catch fish from the pond, you’ll see the episode when Hiccup fed Toothless for the first time. I liked the variety of things to do in this game - you can talk to people and choose your lines, you can make new equipment (one of them is the tail piece for Toothless), you can fly, you can jump, you can fish, you can even send smiles to the characters in the game. That definitely makes the gaming experience more fun but still is rather underwhelming. It doesn’t have enough exciting things to happen besides having your own dragon which happens in the second half of the game. You just go along the movie’s storyline with a little difference. Which is great if you’re a fan, I liked How to Train Your Dragon too, but I would like to see something surprising and new in the game, I like to have a unique gaming experience.

Graphics and Controls 6/10

This game really makes you relive the movie. The graphics of the game itself could be better and closer to the movie, but it still is higher than your average video game for mobiles. The characters and scenes are very close to original ones, and you meet in this game almost all of them. The controls aren’t easy especially when it comes to controlling the dragons’ flights. In the movie itself, you could see a limited number of landscapes and places, but this game allows you to see a wider picture and fully immerse in the old vikings’ world.

Sound  5/10

No special sound and music effects. You can choose to switch them off. The dialogues aren’t narrated as they’re written. The characters usually say only one sentence when few of them are actually written. The accents of the speeches are very close to the movie, but you can still hear that they’re ADR-ed by somebody else.

Bad

My game on Android had a lot of glitches. I couldn’t play even 5 minutes at a time without it having any troubleshoot, it just stopped and froze and there’s nothing could be done. Also, it uploads very slowly at the beginning and during the game’s scenes changes. I think that PC version is better in this case. But even if it didn’t have software problems, I don’t think that I would come back to this game. I think a younger audience would like it due to its simplicity and more child-like graphics.
