Fight the Dragon is a single player, couch co-op & online co-op action/RPG hybrid where players adventure across realms created by other players, collecting loot, gaining levels, and acquiring tickets to fight the mighty dragon. Each time the player fights the dragon they have a chance to win great prizes as well as do permanent damage to the dragon that carries over from fight to fight. In this way the heroes will eventually overcome the mighty beast, although you can expect many failures along their way.
The crown jewel of Fight the Dragon is the Adventure Construction Kit. From within the game players construct entire adventures from a vast array of provided textures, props, enemies, traps, events and triggers. By utilizing the triggers system they can create complex cascade reactions and puzzles. Players can also create NPCs and NPC dialogue, allowing for story development within the levels themselves or even between levels if players choose to create campaigns that run in sequence. The game automatically scales the levels created to match the level of the players attempting to conquer it. Information on the ACK can be found at here.
How does Fight the Dragon play on Linux:
From our first look at the 1.0 release. The controller integration and responsive is fantastic, so much so we asked 3 Sprockets, Seon Rozenblum about it, “the entire game was built for controller first, even the ACK was controller only for the first 3 months”. Making gameplay that much more exciting, should you not want to play with the a-typical keyboard and mouse. Which does make for quicker response in game.
The graphics are exceptionally detailed with stellar gameplay, a must see. While build 1.0.1 is already underway, the team has kept up development and will continue to expand on the gameplay for Fight the Dragon. Linux Game News has seen weekly updates from the development team through Early Access, so it’s a pleasure to know player support is being taken seriously. Which means you can expect a little more from 3 Sprockets.
All in all, we simply found the gameplay to be very well put together, making the learning curve much easier. Giving the player much more time to enjoy the game, rather than figuring out how to play it. But we could be a tad bit biased, we here at LGN have been playing Fight the Dragon since the title first appeared on Steam Early Access.
One more thing, you will want to play with a friend. So the two-pack deal on Steam is without question the best offer available.
