App description: Tyrannize the kingdom as a fire-breathing dragon who sleeps on gold and kidnaps princesses for fun!

"Choice of the Dragon" is a thrilling interactive novel by Dan Fabulich and Adam Strong-Morse, where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based--30,000 words, without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Battle heroes, wizards, and rival dragons in your insatiable thirst for gold and infamy. Start by dominating a local tribe of goblins, then usurp the kingdom, defending and expanding your despotic regime to annex neighboring kingdoms, incinerating the peasants in their thatched-roof cottages.

O, mighty dragon, spread your wings and let your shadow fall over the terrorized nation beneath you!

Play as male, female, neither, or an undetermined gender
Find and seduce another dragon to be your mate
Kidnap princesses for good conversation, to bait heroes, or for a light snack
Isn't it a little sexist to always kidnap princesses? Kidnap a prince instead
Ransack holy temples, blaspheming against vengeful gods

thought i would compliment the devs. im really enjoying the story. i have always thought that a game like this would work well with mini arcade type games involved, along with some animation for the epic fight scenes. but anyhow.. thanks for the work. im enjoying the app very much.

I just finished one play through. Quite enjoyable, but a bit short. With the decent amount of choices you have, i am sure i will play it a few more times. Since it is free, there is no reason not go get this. Unless you are completely against reading for entertainment.

This should fall under interactive fictions. If you want more games like this, you can try "Frotz" (also free). Although most of the IF involves a lot of typing, so you might be more comfortable playing them on a PC.

For a more professional, higher budget visual novel. I highly recommend Kira Kira. Unlike IF which is text only, this also get anime style graphics, fully voiced (english text, japanese voice), and good music/songs. At $10, it is quite expensive by appstore standard. But in my opinion, it is well worth the money. Kira Kira is actually my favorite VN (among the VN on PC, there are not many on iphone). That is why i always try to promote it. All people who like reading, and anime watchers should give it a try.

Don't let the bad english on the description scare you away, the game itself has proper english.
