Dragon City is a social network game from social games developer Social Point which was launched for play on Facebook in May 2012 and for download on iOS in 2013. In August 2014 the aforementioned developer made the game available for download on Intel Atom tablets for Android. The game targets mid-core players, allowing them to raise their own dragons and create a Dragon City on floating islands. In December 2012 The Next Web ran an article announcing that Dragon City was ranked #2 in Facebook’s 25 top rated games that year.

The game currently has level 99 being the maximum level as of up to date, assumable to have 99 levels. To level up, experience points (Xp) are required. The player starts with 6 main islands. The player will then start a tutorial on simple tasks, such as breeding hybrids, collecting food from farms and clearing obstacles.
Currently there are 581 dragons (581 according to the dragon book). Deus, the god, or ultimate dragon builder created most of the dragons. To level up a dragon the player must feed it 4 amounts of food, and as the dragon levels up, it takes more food to level them up. Dragons generate gold as their revenue and the amount of revenue generated depends on the level and dragon it is. Players can grow food or can buy it for gems. However, players are able to buy temples that increase the limit to which a dragon is able to level up to. (Currently the maximum level for dragons to level up is level 40) There is also an ancient portal in which players can go back to a different world, grow dragons, send them to special islands, evolve them, breed them, and summon new ones (however players cannot customize this). There are several events a month in which players can earn rare dragons by breeding, feeding, growing food, fighting, and collecting gold.
The game has 12 normal world elements, which are in unlock level order, Terra, Flame, Sea, Nature, Electric, Ice, Metal, Dark, Light, War, Pure and Legend. There are 6 ancient world elements as well for certain dragons, in unlock level order, which are Ancient (in which only the Ancient World breeders have), Beauty, Magic, Chaos, Happy, Dream and Soul. These dragons can be elementals (1 element), hybrids (2 elements), tribrids (3 elements) and tetra-elementals (4 elements). In total there are 18 elements in the game. Elements also indicate which habitats each dragon can be put in. Dragons can live in up to four habitats depending on how many elements the dragon contains. If they contain one element, they can only live in one habitat; if they contain two elements they can live in two habitats (with the exception of the double elementals); etc.there are holiday dragons ( usually cannot be breed ) but bought and you will only see a holiday dragon if it’s that holiday or was a day or two ago in the dragon market but They cost about 100 gems or more . Dragons level up by eating food there are 3 stages ( each have an animation they do) 1.baby stage,2.teen stage,3.adult and at level 15 dragons unlock all of their attacks for combat. The terra dragon is the most common dragon you’ll ever see and second most common is the flame dragon.
The elements are what gives the dragons their status, such as their defences, offences, and attacks. The elements can be primary, secondary, tertiary or quaternary depending on what type of dragons they are. Most dragons’ attacks are based on what elements they have, for example Viking Dragon is an Ice–Sea hybrid dragon youth replica soccer jerseys wholesale, so it only has Ice and Sea attacks and Ice is its primary element. However, there are dragons which can attack without needing to have the element. Some examples are Aztec Emperor Dragon, which is Nature–Electric–Light, but can also have the Pure element’s Pure light attack; and Pure Dragon, which is just Pure, but can also have the Flame element’s Lava balls attack. There are 5 attacks in each element, each with different base powers. Some exceptions are the Ancient elements with only 4 attacks, and Pure with only 3 attacks – all with the same base power. There are also physical attacks for when element attacks (depending on the dragon) are too weak. Every dragon has 8 attacks (4 default and 4 trainable ). Some dragons level 40 or higher can beat a legendary dragon !
There are 10 categories in the game as of up to date. The categories determine the attack strength and the health of each dragon depending on their Category. Categories 1 to 5 were introduced at the time the game was initially released. Categories 6 to 9 were introduced in April 2015. Category 10 was introduced in April 2016 along with the High Fenrir dragon,heroic races,and the heroic rarity.
