Don't know about this. Same game, same traps, new setting. New bosses, harder to play. Same graphics. Looks like renewed first part

Well, that's why it's Dragon Hills 2, and not insert completely new titel here I guess. Anyway, I just had a little conversation with a fellow forum member, and I told him that I didn't even like the first, but love this one. Of course he asked why, and this is what I answered: The gameplay feels way more fluent to me. In the first one I always bumped in those stupid red iron walls. Or I died in what was it lava? placed so stupidly there was no way to escape. Of course there are (deadly) obstacles and acid this time in this one as well, but the design is way better. This time it's up to me. AND there is much more action. And so on. Since lots of ppl loved the first one it might just be me, but I was literally unable to play the first. While I am having a blast with this one. Hope that helps.

Hope that helps.

Ferb, I know what we are gonna do today!

Helpful tips:

- Upgrade your vitality and drilling skill to defeat Mega Boss.

- Invest your coins into the guns as those are very helpful to defeat bosses.

- Try to smash windows, those with lights on, sometimes there are money safes out there and you can earn extra coins

- Upgrade speed boost to fill out the blue bar quicker and get Speed Boost during the game - it makes you super fast and immortal for a while.

- if you hate those zombies shooting at you constantly - try bubble hurricane - it traps your enemies, and they look very cute in the bubbles. It's easy to get rid of them then.

Have fun and find your own strategy

Never knowingly encountered the first Dragon Hills, and only found this by rootling through the end of this week's new release list looking at all premium titles. (Which I do every week. Sadly, it doesn't take long!)

This is absolutely tremendous. IMO. Fantastic, responsive controls; great upgrade trees / options; fully premium. Tonnes of lovely details, varied bosses, and a wide range of unexpected encounters / bonuses.

I wouldn't mind a bit more information on some things - what *is* a perfect jump? And what does upgrading things do? I see an "information" icon on price buttons, but they just purchase. And tbh idk what drill skill (or whatever it's called) is, am yet to grasp the utility of speed burst, and dnk if upgrading crates does more than increase rhe frequency of item drops (this is definitely the most noticeable impact).

I can't say this is a problem for enjoyment, it's just a bit puzzling.

Game of the week for me, comfortably. Honestly, screw Talos. Bought it (Talos, that is) but found it far too slow / pretentious to grip me at first bite.

Re-tried first one before playing this.
Improvements in every aspect, levels everytime different, with weapons, very much variety (more like aliens drive me crazy), everything is better EXPECIALLY lava doesn't mean INSTADEATH like the first one. Probably this is the worst problem of the first chapter.

Glad to have paid for a premium experience. This is a great game.

Game is not featured in Germany at the moment. And seeing what games actually are featured makes me feel sad ...

I of course already left a five star review, but not being mentioned in the new games section is a tough challenge. Hope it's not everywhere like this ... ?

I'm sure a lot of work and love went into this little gem, and seriously man, I do hope this will pay out. Good luck!
