Could totally be perfect, good start
By Voovle pie
I totally love the concept of this game, and can understand its potential, but since it’s young, I have criticisms that are probably upgrades already in mind if the team, but I digress. Handling is different, which it’s probably supposed to be since you don’t want people who have mastered hungry shark coming to this game and instantly pulling the same scores as the other game. I have also noticed a harder survivability for younger dragons that’s not necessarily a part of the other game, also good since there’s less playable dragons at this time. I’m not totally a fan of time gated achievements since they’ve never been a thing before, but I’m not totally opposed to the concept. The additions of costumes was spot on. Completely different looks for the dragon with their own stat bonuses, keeps it nice and clean. The only grievances I would say I have is that the sensitivity is way weird. Scrolling and even trying to move as a dragon isn’t always reliable. Most of the time I’ll get where I’d like to be going but the dragon will stop moving altogether or not move at all. Also a larger number of teeny tiny prey items would be ideal as well. Interface wise, it seems a little clunky and flashy. But that’s just an opinion. Overall I’m really liking what it’s brought to the table being so young and can’t wait to see how this game grows!
Fun and beautiful, but a lack of reward for the grinding
I like most of this game. It’s got a lot of action, beautiful scenery and the controls are very fluid, but one thing that disappoints me is a huge thing: unless you purchase gems or coins with real money, your progress is extremely slow. You need different sized dragons for different things, like for breaking through some barriers on the map that restrict you from moving on to a new area, but there are multiple dragons of the same size and you have to not only purchase those dragons if you want to advance, but you also have to level up each and every one of them in order to move up to the next size. You end up doing a lot of grinding of the same scenery with the same dragon just so you can save up enough coin to progress to the next dragon, only to find out that he’s still only just a medium, and then when you finally unlock the next size dragon, you still have to grind like crazy because he costs 3 times as much as the one you’re currently playing with. I guess that’s what to expect for a free game with in app purchases.
Between this and Rayman Adventures, it’s clear to me that Ubisoft has jumped on the bandwagon of mobile money generators, rather than just making great games. I’ve been a fan of their games since the 90s and it’s sad to see them go down this path.
Tremendously Fun Game
I usually don’t even pay attention to any of these free to play games and rarely do I play them, but something about Hungry Dragon caught my eye. I figured I’d download the game, try it out, then probably delete it and go back to something else.
That was several days ago and so needless to say I was wrong and I’m hooked on Hungry Dragon.
This game reminds me of the old school games of my youth. Games from the Atari 2600, NES, or Sega Genesis days when the games couldn’t be these 100 hour long, huge adventures, but instead focused on simple yet exciting and fun gameplay. Games where it wasn’t about “beating” the game or getting to the end of the story, but ones where you would just replay the same things over and over, not just because you were trying to do better, but because playing it was just plain fun.
Those old games are what Hungry Dragon reminds me off, with the added benefit of gorgeous graphics that, while the gameplay has an old school feel, gives the game the look and polish of the AAA titles of today.
I highly recommend anyone curious about Hungry Dragon, or anyone who is just looking for something fun to play, to give it a try. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re quickly hooked on the game, just like I am.
About a year or so ago, my sister downloaded Hungry Shark for me. I really enjoyed it, but, due to a backfire on my phone, lost all my data (I was a legitimate player too). I don’t blame the app, though, because, now that I’ve upgraded to an iPhone 6s Plus that hasn’t been tortured by falls and water damage, it worked perfectly fine again. I continued playing it until recently when I was forced to delete several games for storage; Hungry Shark was one of them. It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy the game, I knew I would recover everything later on. Then I saw Hungry Dragon. I knew automatically who the makers were, so I quickly made a few taps and got started. My phone hasn’t been reduced to ashes and my eye sockets haven’t been incinerated, so this game is high on my list!
I would, however, like to make a recommendation: Add more dragons! I have not completed the game yet, and it will most definitely take me a month or so, and that’s if I work at it. But I know there are some very determined people out there, and I am, rather sadly, not included. But for those who are, this game could be one of the first they get completed. For theirs’ and the Hungry games creators’ sakes, I ask for more dragons.
I love this app!!! At first I started out playing hungry shark evolution. That was really fun, once I got to the top shark and bought all the items i thought, well, what else is there to do?? So I looked at ubisofts other games and I found hungry shark world. That was huge! I still play hungry shark world to this day. I'm at the meglodon and I love it!!! I am a huge hungry shark fan btw. And so around three days ago, I was looking in the app store for a game and saw hungry dragon. THAT BLEW MY MIND!!!! It looked high quality so I checked it out and saw that it was made by ubisoft, so I downloaded it. It is definitely a very close second to hungry shark world, and that is saying something. I love everything about it, the gameplay, graphics, style, everything is on point. Im giving it five stars but I do have one tiny problem with the game. ITS TOO FAST. Thing is, I just started, and I'm already at Don Drago. I'm not trying to brag but I got there so fast and I hope ubisoft will add more dragons. (Maybe even xxl?) And definitely should add more maps. Overall, the game is incredible, and I definitely recommend it to all hungry shark players and everyone else. NICE JOB UBISOFT!!!
I love this game
I am a big fan of hungry shark, so when they announced they were coming out with a game about dragons I was overjoyed. I dislike a lot of mobile games these days, where everything nice costs actual money and in-game currency is next to worthless. Hungry dragon is anything but that. There’s no energy to use, so I can play for hours upon hours. Eggs and gems are easy to accumulate. The gameplay itself is extremely fun, and the dragons are well rendered and move in fun ways. I’ve only had the game for two days, but I’ve already played a ridiculous amount of hours on it.
The only thing I wish the developers had put in was the ability to play as smaller dragons through the game. I’m particularly fond of one of the small dragons, and since I’ve unlocked the large dragons I haven’t been able to play it much. I would have liked to see my preferred dragon unlock the ability to eat larger and larger creatures. Who knows, maybe I can at the end, but I’m not hopeful.
Anyway, this is an amazing game. Definitely worth the wait, and you should get it and play it forever. I certainly will.
Great game with a few flaws
By Limo Jeff
After coming from Hungry Shark Evolution and World, I can say this is a very good edition to a growing game series. The gameplay, although it can get a bit stale sometimes, is very fun, and echos the original games before it. The dragons are really awesome, and they all have their own character and traits, which is a huge plus. The idea of the new Tournament system (everyone uses the same dragon with the same boosts, pets, etc.) is several times better than having to bring a L shark to a tournament dominated by !! Sharks.
the HUNGRY sequence can definitely go with some music. In fact, I find a lot of the game to be relatively quiet. (Aside from the fire rushes) if there was more music and better sound effects with the creatures, the game would be way more immersive. The egg system, although is really creative, is a bit ridiculous with the chances. (96% common, 3% rare, and 1% epic) there definitely needs to be a change in the chances. There are other very minor flaws, but nothing serious enough to get into detail about.
To those reading, I highly recommend grabbing this game. You will have a whale (or should I say a dragon) of a time!
Love it but one thing..
Now I like the game but their is 1 problem... I know in hungry dragon you are not supposed to go in the water but if you do and say under their long... Shouldn’t you drown? I mean I understand people should not be in it in the first place but if they were they should drown. Sharks should be in the water as well. Could you add a water dragon that could go underwater, not drown, and be able to swim in the water?(I know this is not Hungry Shark World but... Hint Hint 😏💰) Now let’s talk about the gold system. All the photos have the dragons and stuff but they have low gold. One photo shows someone was playing for 17:41 minutes and had 275 gold but the last one played for about 21 minutes but had only about 1,000 gold. At these points in Hungry Shark World you would have at least above 1,000 Gold by then so thats why I think the game should have an updated gold system ☝️, drowning effect✌️, and a Water Dragon🤟(<— only 3 finger symbol and if their already is a Water Dragon I did not know i am in the Medium stage in the game) anyways great game! 👍
This is a really great game! Especially when you’re the serpent, (Sparks, I guess) because you’re as flexible as a noodle! And the sound of the angelpork (angel pork) makes Sparks hungry! 😋 Though, what are those electrifying puffy things? Some are electrifying, while others aren’t. They’re usually found near Frog Falls. It’s only my first 30 minutes, and I’ve already gotten the Cyber Costume for Sparks! There’s nothing better than fresh angelpork! I could just imagine me feeding Sparks DEELIIICIOUS FREEEEESH AAANNNGGGEEL POOOORK! YUUUUUM! He says that the world he lives in is crazy. “Oh and when you eat beef the cow is split in half and inside is the inside of a sausage texture “ he explains, “Oh and horses behave like that too “ “Pork... Just the pronunciation is delicious!”Oops, sorry. He’s too hungry to keep going on... We will be back! (In other words, I will edit the review soon. I’m too hungry to go on. He is starving me with angelpork!)
Great fun with improvement potential

What a great follow on to hungry sharks, with a much larger world to explore! Much of what made hungry sharks fun is present here, with some additional gags thrown in for good measure (flying pigs!) So there is a lot to love. The much bigger map is definitely a big plus!
Unfortunately, the game is slow to load - the initial load goes on for a while but even entering a level after selecting a dragon takes its sweet time. What delays the game even further are the mandatory advertisements that reflect how Ubisoft is hoping to monetize the game (besides offering to sell you gold, gems, etc to access dragons more quickly).
That advertisement push also poisons the gameplay, such as making the map available but only showing special items if you are willing to sit through yet another advertisement or pony up 10 gems to get 24hrs or special items being indicated on the map. Advertisements also pop up after games. In other words, there are ads being shown all the time.
I’d much rather pay a set $$$ to turn off ads altogether. They are really disruptive to the game play. This is not an option UbiSoft gives its players and hence I expect this game to loose appeal in the long run. There is only so much time I want to waste playing these games and watching the same ad over and over.
