Just played this for am hour or so..
Was pleasantly surprised
It's quite addictive.
Haven't been playing a freemium/ time management game in a while,
Tiny tower frenzy finished a while back now..
Hope this keeps me hooked for a while
I was going to buy quite a bit off snacks, and gems and stuff but I wanted to ask a few questions first to make sure this will be a game I will play for a while

Do you have to be connected to the Internet to play?
It doesn't seem to connect when I turn wifi off, which means I won't be able to check it if I'm away from home.

Will there be updates?

Does having different dragons improve anything? Or do you get the same benefits by having all of the Same dragon?
(my island is almost all lead at the moment, to build up some cash)

Do decorations have any benefits other than prettiness?

Hey all! Justin from Backflip Studios here. Glad you're all enjoying the game thus far! Allow me to answer a few of your questions...

Do you have to be connected to the Internet to play? Yes, the game does require a data connection in order to play, whether it's Wi-Fi, 3G, Edge, etc.

Will there be updates? Absolutely! We're hard at work on content updates including things like new dragons and decorations, and hope to make them available as soon as possible!

Does having different dragons improve anything? Or do you get the same benefits by having all of the Same dragon? Each dragon has its own unique gold collection rate (which increases with its level and can be viewed by tapping on an individual dragon in its habitat) and also draws a different number of visitors to your park. You can build your park however you want!

Do decorations have any benefits other than prettiness? You earn experience points for placing decorations in your park. It also allows you to customize the look of your park and show it off to all your friends on Game Center.

is there a way to add friends and what not?? Any of your friends on Game Center or Facebook who have the game (and have authorized it), will show up under the Friends menu (located in the lower right hand corner of the screen, next to the Market). Note: In order to see your Facebook friends playing the game, you must first authorize the game through Facebook yourself.

We appreciate all of your support and we're very excited about the future of DragonVale. Stay tuned for news and information on future updates!

Thanks for the work put into this, feels near bug free and a very much enjoyable game experience so far

Two requests for future update consideration :
- the ability to move from friend to friend when out visiting without having to return home in-between each visit.
- either let us adjust the interface size or simply shrink it by about 30 percent on the iPad so we can enjoy the real-estate more

Thanks again, keep up the great work

Thank you for such a detailed reply
Ive bought 3 lots of gems so far..thinking about buying the 30ish pack to save some money cause I think I'd need a hell of a lot of 50 packs to stay satisfied.
Can't wait for more updates..cant wait to get that rainbow dragon!
