One of the best games I have ever played
by DragonKn1ght815 on 2020/01/20 18:21
This game is a game that me and my siblings grew up with and it has only gotten better and every time I play it I only feel joy so if you haven’t played or heard of this game get immediately.
Love this game, but...
by -Half & Half on 2020/01/20 16:46
I can’t stop thinking about it! All my dragons are so cool! However, when I go to bed and wake up in the morning, my eggs to not advance in time at all. They will advance an hour maybe, that’s it. It’s quite annoying and the worst glitch to deal with. This is why it’s has two stars. If this is to be fixed, it will be five stars.
I >333 this game!

This is a complete game and I love it!

Best game ever

It is my favorite game its so cute so many dragons to collect always something to do thats new
Great, but suggestion...
by yassgood on 2020/01/19 22:42
It would be really great if the decorations had the ability to be rotated and flipped
Enjoy this game
by rmmpurpledragon on 2020/01/19 18:07
I enjoy playing this game but it gets kind of boring after awhile. It would be better if we could interact with friends. It would be nice if we could trade our dragons for their dragons and items. Things cost slot of jewels which take forever to collect and islands cost more than you can collect especially when you have to buy other items.
Definitely recommend!!
by i like iy on 2020/01/19 01:47
I’ve had this game for around 2 years now, and I love it! It’s so much better than the other dragon games. I’m on like level 48 and I’m pretty satisfied with what I have in my park, I have the kairos, the Gaia, Bahamut, and the other one (I forgot what it’s called). But this is like my all time favorite game and I’m like on it 24/7. The only thing that bothers me is I can’t seem to figure out how to get the enchanted breeding cave thing, it’s like the cave with the big purple gem on the top, cause on the “great nogard’s” park when I visit, it has it and when I search it up in the market under buildings I can’t seem to find it, unless u like dis-continued it but that made me kinda upset but hasn’t affected my thoughts on the game overall 🙂. My suggestion for the game would be some improvements in the rift. Yes it’s a very cool now and different realm, the only thing that bugs me is that each time u breed, the price of ethurium goes up, same with clearing the cloud things. It just bugs me. There also should be more ways to gain etherium, cause I only have around 1,000, and like I’m too broke to do anything besides breed like once or twice and even when I do get ethurium from my dragons, it’s a very little amount, and doesn’t even make a dent in how much I have. But that’s what I think of the game, but I still love it 😊 thanks!

This game is the best game ever. Although, I think that some of the dragons or habitats shouldn’t cost diamonds. They should cost coins like everything else. Thanks User
Tha best!!!

I love this game. I’ve played this game since I was 7 years old. It’s a great game that I haven’t outgrown or lost interest in. It always has new challenges and new features that I love. Keep on making this game fun backflip studios!!!!
Amazing!!!
by this guy98899 on 2020/01/16 20:13
I’ve had this game for forever. I first played this game when my mom had it on her iPhone 3. Me and my sister would fight to play this game. It always draws me back to it whenever I get a new phone. I love this game
keeps crashing
by ceruleanblooms288 on 2020/01/16 05:07
i really like the game and am happy with the way it’s set up and the variety of the dragons (i also appreciate how, relatively, easy it is to get gems). however, the app keeps crashing. i’m connected to good wifi and it’s already on low resolution mode. this is getting very annoying. edit: another thing, the game get really glitchy and slow if i’m in for longer than 2 minutes i feel. it is really laggy and freezes up sometimes too.
Its awesome i love the really cute dragons and the music thank you for making an awesome game.
by Jaymaster74 on 2020/01/13 13:39
Awesome
Please read if you have not gotten this game yet.
by Video Gideo Games on 2020/01/12 07:16
This is a very good game, but I have some bad news. Backflip Studios, the developers, have closed down in October of 2019. Events will still happen, but there will be no new dragons or items. The events will basically all happen on rerun. Luckily, there are still hundreds and hundreds of dragons to collect. If you have patience, this game may be for you.
Amazing

by mittenzandtigger on 2020/01/11 04:25
I always loved this game and the animations are just, wonderful. but this morning (Jan,10,2020) my game wouldn't stope crashing. I don't know if it's the game or my iPad being strange? But I'm kinda worried because what if I have to delete ALL of my progress?? I just got a very good dragon egg the other day and if I delete my game I won't (probably) never see it again. what should I do? delete the game? I already restarted my IPad, that didn't work. I tried opening it from the App Store. didn't work. I know this reply in a bit (okay maybe a year or two late) but I hope you can help me with this developers.. ಠ_ಠ

The game isn’t loading. Please fix
Is anyone else having an issue with it being extremely slow?
by Aggrivated wizard on 2020/01/05 17:13
I would love to give this game 5 stars. I really want to, but I just can’t! Recently I’ve been having an issue where the game takes up to 15 MINUTES for it to start. Sometimes it will be loading for 10 minutes and just crash. I love this game and play it every day, but the loading time is just unacceptable. I hope the people at backflip are working on this issue or will start working on it soon.
It good

I love this game and I’ve bean playing it sense I was 4 so like 8 years, it’s the game that brought me and my dad together wen I was young PLUS it introduced me to gaming. It is a huge part of my child hood and the creator is an angel but it’s bean going down hill... here are my only complaints so please put it in your heart to fix them so the dragon vale I know will come back ! 1: things take forever so I can only play once for like 10 min every day literally I have an egg that still has 20 hours on it. 2: if you want any thing good it costs jems witch are like impossible to get and if you want things to go faster it costs jems. 3: so much stuff I don’t know were to begin 4: 700 jems for 25$... REALLY? 5: love you thanks plz put it in your hearts to fix at least one thing it would really make my day and lift a weight I love this game so PLEASE bring it back to me !!! -Quinn.K
Messed up!
by abbrs5310 on 2020/01/04 05:28
I was on level 28+ had over 60 dragons (special dragons from the Halloween event and other rare dragons), 5 islands, the special breading cave, 2 galaxy islands, and the gemstone island. One day I go on the game and dang I’m back to the beginning, wanted me to put my birthday again! This is not the first time this has happened to me! I emailed customer service still no reply and I messaged over a month ago. I don’t want to re-download the game and I don’t recommend it anymore. I’ve read that other people are having the same experience. I used to love this game but this is getting old. I don’t want anyone else to go through this. I wish it didn’t have this problem.

I love the game but...
by Isaac Simpson ok on 2020/01/04 04:30
Listen this is a great game it’s really fun and has a lot to do it’s just a great game that’s designed to take years to get everything. I have been driven away from the game because of the amount of time it takes to load I really do want to log on but when I want to get on I don’t feel like sitting there for a minute waiting to load and I couldn’t even imagine how long it would take if I had a lot of stuff. It’s kinda like rebooting your phone every time you want to get on.
Won’t open
by shyman2016 on 2020/01/04 04:11
It’s a really fun and great pass time game. Except when every time I hit a certain level the app then refuses to open. It force closes once I tap on it. I’ve never been able to reach level 40+ because of this.
Help
by Oh minhoo on 2020/01/04 01:58
Amazing game, but after a few days after the Christmas update my game won’t load anymore, it keeps saying that we have problems with the server and unable to load it. Help me, please.
Great but annoyed
by Gamer4382 on 2020/01/04 00:10
I got this game when it was relatively new, and I played it every day. I was at a considerably high level and had spent some money on this game, when I logged in one day and I was back a level 1. I’ve heard a lot of other people have this same problem and I hope the developers can fix it. If this issue didn’t occur than I would have definitely gave this game a 5 star rating.
It’s OK.
by dauntedmeteor on 2020/01/03 20:10
Dragon Ville is good. Although, it’s a bit weird...

One star
by Real Brice on 2020/01/03 11:21
Hi I thought this was a good game but I deleted it for storage and installed it again later but I can’t go past the name your park part because it says it contains profanity on everything. I put Dragon Park and it said it contained profanity. Is there a way I can get around this glitch or no?
Amazing buttttt......
by pannda🐼❤️ on 2020/01/03 04:13
This game deserves five stars but there is this one problem... you see, it takes a really long time to like upgrade... it might just be me ehh?!?! Anyway love the game so far!!🤩😜😁

Best Dragon Game for Friends and Family
by ViperDragon13 on 2020/01/02 00:26
This is by far the best dragon game where you can breed dragons with your friends and family. Nothing like getting a surprise dragon from someone that breeds with your dragon. I have been playing this game for over a year and it is very true that with patience you can get all the dragons and more without buying anything. But for me, I don’t like to wait and will pay to get what I want. The prices are fair and they do a lot of sales. There is events through out the year. If you love Dragons like I do, this game is for you. My only recommendation to add to this game is to add the zodiac and Greek gods dragons to add additional variety.
Fun at first
by TheFriendlyJudge on 2020/01/01 21:05
This game is really fun, and I like the new activities it adds seasonally. However, a few critics. First off, there are almost too many dragons. It’s almost too easy to attain new dragons and defeats the strategizing aspect. Furthermore, unless you pay money, it’s incredibly hard to get large amounts of gems. This is annoying as a large majority of items cost over 1,000 gems.
???
by 123speedy456 on 2020/01/01 02:33
So I downloaded this games and played it one time for while and I really did like it but now I can’t get it to load and have been trying for hours
This game is good but
by lambolover11 on 2019/12/31 15:06
This game is a very good game and fun to plays with friends but after a while it gets boring but I would recommend this game to anyone that likes dragons.

DragonVale is Paradise
by StarrTheFearless on 2019/12/30 00:49
This game is so awesome. Although I have the occasional problem with logging in, it redeems itself almost instantly. I think that if I could give the developers at Backflip Studios an idea of what they could do better/differently it would be that the app gives a notification about when to update for an event or just when to update. This may result in less confusion and more enjoyment. I would also like to send a HUUUGE thank you to Craig @Backflip for his help. When the aforementioned problems occurred and I reported them to the DragonVale Help Desk via email, Craig helped me sort it all out. I recommend this game to anyone who wants pets but cannot have them or for anyone who wants to raise creatures. THANK YOU BACKFLIP STUDIOS FOR CREATING DRAGONVALE
Beautiful but Buggy
by Chica Dude on 2019/12/29 17:28
Crashes all the time. 8 crashes in most recent session, primarily with adverts. Some adverts have questionable content including lurid images and items. Response from support always the same: “nothing wrong from our end; go to settings...etc”. Have highest speed internet possible on fiber optic line; no problems with ANY other app or movie streaming. So problem is likely not on my end says all of the apple folks. Animation is beautiful though. I keep the app hoping that hasbro will do a better job of supporting the tech. Why keep expanding the game if you don’t have the ability to properly keep it running? Verrrrrrry disappointed.
Just one teensy problem
by csantucci07 on 2019/12/29 15:34
Except if it’s a poser, my water dragon is level 20 BUT... it is not an elder even if it’s what it’s SUPPOSED TO BE!! Please fix.
Hate the fact we cannot keep the eggs
by rilyn3435 on 2019/12/29 12:26
I love this game a lot it’s been my favorite but it’s annoying the fact I cant keep the eggs from the bonus breeding cave like I want to be able to keep those eggs that I’ve worked hard for can you please change this
Alright it’s good, but some glitches/problems
by 123Wolfy321 on 2019/12/28 16:17
DragonVale is amazing but.. when I open the app and it loads, it always will almost be done loading and tell me a wizards spell went wonky/wrong. So I barely play anymore. Please fix this. I love this game so much Your friend, Maddy
Awesome app
by abi❤️horses on 2019/12/28 15:32
I love this game but I just downloaded it on my new iPad and it won’t work it won’t even open please fix this problem
I loved it, but now I’m just sad.
by shhhh, my name is mine. on 2019/12/27 03:23
Okay,so,I loved this game so much, and what the owners have done to it made me so sad.IT COLLECTS PERSONAL INFO.I am on level 30, and I have so much items, but I had to delete the game because when I logged in just now, it told me that while I am playing it will collect personal info, I felt actual sorrow, as all the work I have put into this game have to be deleted because Of it’s “privacy policy”. Okay, now the real review. This game was amazing,I loved it truly.but the things in the game are way overpriced, and when you first start playing the game, it is very hard to get diamonds.for example, a simple dragon (like fire and plant)costs you like, 75 diamonds!of course, in can understand why it is so much because you need to breed it, but right now that’s the only example I can think of.i really liked this game, and if the owner is reading this, please change the privacy policy, I really want to play the game I loved again.
ONE STAR?!
by The Guy Who Likes Dragons on 2019/12/27 01:09
You hardly do different splashes because you just spam this splash,”Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” Then I see Pepper dragons need more warmth... next splash,”Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” So then I get a Moonstruck dragon splash, then straight away the next splash is, you guessed it,”Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” I even PUNCH MY IPAD JUST BECAUSE I AM ANGRY AT THAT SPLASH!!! The game is good and all, but my ranking would’ve been 5 stars if you didn’t spam “Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” I mean, new players need new info but they can’t get it because of that STUPID SPLASH! Please just don’t spam that splash too much. Okay? Okay.
Love it but
by iiiiiiidonttttcarreeee on 2019/12/26 19:28
Love this game so much I’ve played it before on my iPad but I recently got it on my phone it was working at first but after a day it said whenever I tried to log in it says that the wizards speed went wonky or something like that and I constantly trie to get in the app but it says that every single time.
Meh
by Adam rash on 2019/12/26 06:50
Great game but takes about a million years to load
To the Creator of DragonVale
by scar-i-boo on 2019/12/26 00:24
Dear DragonVale Creater, I love the app so much. I think it brought my sister and I closer. I say that there should be no more updates but I came up with some critiques that you could use. 1. A Faster way to get gems 2. When updating a building that uses gem just use a lot of coins For ex. Hatching Area it costs 25 gems for three slots, well you could do 6.000.000 or something like that. 3. Though I like the game there is a lot of waiting and sometimes I get bored because either something is upgrading and or build and or hatching. But the patients helps me learn to be more patient. I love the game and you should be proud. PS I love all the different dragons!!! :) Sincerely, 10 year old girl that loves your app
DragonVale

Does not work
by GVGVG123 on 2019/12/25 08:06
The app doesn’t load. I’ve tried redownloading it multiple times. I’ve been told that backflip studios has been notified of the problem but nothing gets resolved.
Loading
by gblaine on 2019/12/25 03:26
The game never finishes loading so I am unable to play it anymore. I don’t know if this is a bug or if their servers are down forever but the game doesn’t leave the loading screen.
I love this game! There is only one issue...
by DragonComet on 2019/12/24 20:19
I love this game. I have played it for years. There is only one issue that really bothers me. The racing game is rigged. I have gotten perfects for the entire race and have gotten second many times. Sometimes, you could get first but it is rigged against you.
Love this game, Have played it for years
by MustacheMan342 on 2019/12/24 18:56
I have played this game for such a long time and it is such a detailed game with so many events.
Fun but lots of loading times
by K.R1L3Y19 on 2019/12/24 05:03
Really fun game but takes forever to load. I probably takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes for the game to load before I even get into my world. Really enjoy just wish it wasn’t so much loading time
RECOMMENDED
by Frozen Echos on 2019/12/24 03:41
This app is so cool! I mean, there are hundreds of hybrids that can be bred! You don’t really need to pay for dragons with diamonds, if you put the time and effort in! I’m on level 20 now and I have really cool dragons! If I could change just ONE thing on here it would be the wait time for breeding and incubating. It can take up to days depending on the rarity of the dragon and when my nursery and breeding cave are full I’m kinda stuck 😟But other than that I totally recommend this app! If your a dragon loving and you like a the thrill of accomplishing something rare, get this app!!! It’s really nice how it’s updated a lot! Keep doing what you guys are doing! It’s amazing! 😉 Also one thing... It would be awesome if you guys added types of constellation dragons. Like Ursa and Orion etc. If you guys already have that’s awesome and I can’t wait to see them when I’m on a higher level. If not, PLEASE ADD THEM 😁
WHY
by Firebird076098 on 2019/12/23 23:45
I loved this game so much. You have no idea how long I spent getting all of my dragons and no idea how much money I wasted on this game... All of a sudden, the game asks me to enter my date of birth and I have to restart from the beginning!!! This has happened twice!!
Great game, but...
by skinny_legend546 on 2019/12/23 21:28
I love this game. You guys at backflip have done a great job. But, recently, I logged in to check on my park, and it was gone! I had so much progress on the game, I was lvl 28, and life was good. But not anymore. This has happened to me years ago, and I decided to take a break because I was very mad about it😂. About a year and a half ago, I started again. I think you guys have a great game and if you could fix this it would be great so that people like me don’t have to worry about saving every single game to the cloud.🤠🤠
Love it!! But...
by starskyandhutch on 2019/12/23 15:06
I’ve been playing this game for a long time and I enjoy it a lot. It’s very unique and addicting, and I’m willing to wait however long it takes to get something, or hatch something! But... recently, when I’ve been trying to load it up, it just loads for a second and then brings me back to home screen. Again and again. This hasn’t happened with any of my other apps, and I’ve tried reloading my phone and deleting some stuff, but it hasn’t changed. So, I know it’s not my phone. What’s going on, and what can I do to fix it?
Fan for life...sad to see it go...
by MuggleMum on 2019/12/23 03:26
I've been a fan of this game since I started playing years ago. Love the way it has evolved over time, and love that the developers are always willing to listen to issues and suggestions. There is never a dull moment in the game! I can spend money when and how I want, without being overwhelmed by ads. I don’t mind spending some to help keep the game going. I’m extremely sad to hear that Backflip has been shut down and would love to see DragonVale live on with the original developers.
Love the game
by alienastronaut1 on 2019/12/23 00:37
I have played this game before and it has been amazing and I would like to say thank you. Also add a LEGO dragon please.

I’ve this game for about 5-6 years now and it’s the only thing in my life that has lasted this long
Used to open daily
by Tommy Mc on 2019/12/20 23:48
I’ve been playing this game for years and the last update pretty much said, “let us track you and sell the information or F-off.”. I think about the agreement every time I go to open the app. Now I just don’t play anymore.
I love this game but...
by delibrid on 2019/12/20 23:47
I love this game and I play it every single day but now it won’t let me open and I’m going to miss the entire event if it doesn’t get fixed. Please fix it!
I Need Help
by Fierfliiii on 2019/12/20 23:06
I absolutely LOVE this game and recommend it to anyone, but there’s one problem. Every time I try to log in, it immediately closes me out. Can someone please fix that. Thanks
Good Game Need Some Features
by AerinRamen on 2019/12/20 16:57
I really love DragonVale. I’ve been playing since it first came out and enjoy to this day. While I did take a break for a bit I still love seeing my dragons and doing quests. However I wish this game would add a few more features. The first one would be a mass editor mode. Similar to Clash of Clans it inventories your island or islands depending on which one you want to edit. This way a player doesn’t have to individually tap each habitat, and walkway, and decoration to get the it right looking. With a mass editor, the person can still say buy walk ways and decorations. Even sell the walkways they don’t want to buy a new version. There would be a lot of potential in this feature for those who want to redecorate their islands but don’t want to spend so much time nitpicking pathways they can barely see behind the habitats when they “edit the pathways”. The DV community would greatly appreciate a mass editor that allows for inventorying all island(s) items so they can plan and map out how they want the island to look like. A second feature I think everyone would get behind is rotational decorations and/or habitats. Now I realize this is primarily a 2D flat game for the most part. You only have one way to view items, dragons and habitats on. However, allowing for rotation would give the game a whole new depth that would attract new players. This in-game would surely be appreciated by the community because of how the game is mostly dependent on the visuals. Instead of having to buy two of the same benches at different angles, let them have the option to rotate it. Habitats are a bit harder but you don’t have to have full 90 degree turns for that. Flipping it left right for a different view would probably be enough for the first update with this feature. If the game did implement rotational items in-game, many people would enjoy redecorating their island just that much more. This one feature is specifically towards the Rift area in DragonVale. I think it would be really cool to have items like the Fountain of Youth or a Hibernation Tower in that area. Because think about how much time it would take to send the rift dragon through (2 hours) to the normal area plus the fountain of youth (depending on the dragon) and then shipping it back again (another 2 hours). While this game is time based, lot of players would rather not have to wait on pending for their dragons to be shipped over to the main area. I really do enjoy DragonVale as it is right now. The events are very fun to play with, daily checks are entertaining overall. 5/5 stars for me on this game. The features I recommended were just a few thing I personally wanted / the community has asked for. Thank you for taking your time to see this review and enjoy the rest of your day!
Too Bad
by lainyw on 2019/12/20 14:19
I have been playing for 2 yrs and did enjoy the game. However I will have to delete the game because I will not consent to tracking of data while I play a game. It is one thing to have pop up ads which I tolerate but not anything else.
An Ode to DragonVale

I like this game a lot
Help me
by badwolf102002 on 2019/12/20 06:00
My app won’t let me use the guy to get free gems he worked one time and had not worked since I don’t know how to get it to work Overall great game I play it all the time
Bug fix !!
by cedesgrace on 2019/12/20 04:33
I’m so close to level 55 and in desperate need of another island. It’s wanting me to agree to different terms so I’m really hoping it doesn’t start my game over after log in. But then there’s the biggest problem, it won’t even let me log in... it keeps saying a wizard has come and the game needs to reload over and over again. Only game I can play and not get bored of. Been playing forever it feels like, please fix this problem!
Consent or do not play our game

Bug fix
by dino dudde on 2019/12/19 20:56
Long story short, the app won’t let me in
Love this game!
by Here: A rating on 2019/12/19 20:49
I absolutely love this game. The only way this game could possibly be any better was if a trade option were added. For example, you have a dragon your friend really wants, and they have one that you really want. Well what could you do? If a trade option was added, you could trade with all your friends and get those dragons you always desired to own! With trade, the game would be perfect in my opinion.
Love the game, but I think there’s a glitch.
by extremesheep598 on 2019/12/19 02:53
I love this game and play it everyday, but I tried opening the app, like normal, and it crashes on the loading screen. Does anyone else experience this or is it just my phone? Please someone help I can’t play the game now.
Backflip Studios has been closed, so goes Dragonvale
by Justme183 on 2019/12/18 21:09
For those of you just getting this app, those of you complaining about purchases, those of you complaining that it hasn’t been updated.. Hasbro has decided to close Backflip Studios- only a handful of people are there, through the end of 2019.
So ubsesed

Dragonvale being shut down
by AurizenDarkstar on 2019/12/17 12:59
From everything I’ve read, the reason why no holiday events have been showing up is that Hasbro has shut down Dragonvale. So I guess it’s only a matter of time before all of our parks disappear into the ether. Sad really, as the game was a fun time waster.
DragonVale
by LostSiren on 2019/12/16 21:21
Since getting the iPhone 11 Pro Max DragonVale has not been updating as it should. Right now is the Ohm of Noms and I’m still stuck with the Candy Bash. Seriously I’ve been playing since the game came out and it’s about to be deleted. Don’t even say log in with Facebook because they’re history as well as far as I’m concerned. Every other app I have stays updated perfectly. This one doesn’t and it’s not the first time either. So either get me updated or contact me. Still it’s mid December and I’m looking at the Halloween game when it boots up. I also do not have Facebook anymore so what happens if I delete the game? Will it come back? I’m so sick of this within the gaming community that I’m about to delete it and I’ve played almost since the game was released. Get your greedy acts together and fix this mess!
Obsessed!!

Deals that don’t work
by Pixiepearl9 on 2019/12/15 19:54
I had bought the 412 gems during the 50% bonus deal but it never gave me the plus 50%. Until this is changed I will change me rating to 5 stars.
I can’t believe this game was cancelled
by dissatisfiedconsumer1111 on 2019/12/14 19:16
Best game ever...they dun messed up
Very upset that you have not updated for Christmas
by Flyaway2ak on 2019/12/14 16:54
Seriously you have had a Winter event every year My selected house is ice. And I look forward to the winter ones. The Halloween stuff was awful I did not like the cover for the front of the app nor the front cover of the dark dragon. Maybe liked it beforehand but now that it is Christmas I am seriously over it. Winter and Christmas and New Year are the best events. Maybe it’s the winter break and I have time to play it really play it. I am venting and of course you probably don’t care.
Love this game!!💜
by _SweetMuffin_ on 2019/12/14 12:56
I’ve been playing for almost 3 years and it is a very fun game! I love the new dragons and my favorite is the sailback dragon! I had a DragonVale account before but something happened to it, but I started over and now I’m level 51!! I would rate this game 6 stars, Thank you so much for making it! 😉
Dragon vale

This game really rocks really
Lovely :)
by Granola Queen on 2019/12/13 22:27
I adore this app. I have played it for years, although I switched to DV World until it recently closed down (not sure if this shut-down is temporary). It is rewarding, well-made, and a joy for all ages, and I appreciate the love and care that was clearly lavished upon this wonderfully unique game. It is NOT a pay-to-win, and the sheer variety of dragons is stunning-they each have a unique story and style, and limited-time dragons and events make it even more exciting. I genuinely have no complaints about this app whatsoever, and look forward to enjoying this game for years to come-I encourage anyone considering downloading to do so, and have your friends join in too!
Used to love this game
by Theywontfixit on 2019/12/13 10:13
After a year of dismal events and oppressive difficulty earning gems, new dragons, event goodies, the game is finally more like it used to be- a challenge but not a soul crushing challenge.
Christmas?

Am I missing something? Where’s the update? Been the same since Halloween. Help!
LOVE THIS GAME❤️❤️❤️but...
by Taz Brad on 2017/09/25 03:21
First of all, I have had this game literally all my life (JK, I got it when it first came out). From my knowledge it’s the first dragon breeding game, so that’s big. Also the gameplay and animation style is unique. Another thing is that new dragons come out like every week or a big update like (for example) the rift update comes out like every 2 months, so there’s always something new to enjoy. Now let’s talk about the ‘but...’; it starts with the rift update. I love the fact that breeding is almost instant and the rift alignment stuff, but, there’s this this call Miasmic Ether and you have to clear it to unlock more of the rift. Sounds fair. BUT, it’s not. Let me explain, each time you clear the Miasmic Ether, you need more etherium (currency in the rift) to clear the rest. For example if I clear one cloud for 200 etherium, the next cloud I clear will cost me 225 etherium, and this value NEVER goes down! So by the time you clear ALL the Miasmic Ether, you will end up paying (for example not actually) 1,235,675 etherium. So basically it’s a hopeless grab for money💸. I like the feature that you have to pay more etherium to clear more Miasmic Ether but there should be a way for the value to go down, like,”Everyday the Miasmic Ether cost resets!” Or something. Also I just wanna say, Backflip Studios, if you’re reading this then please fix this problem...I’m done here. P.S. Backflip I have a ton of ideas for dragons so contact me...notice me senpai.
What a bummer!!!
by IPad oldster on 2018/01/25 11:52
I can't even begin to say how bummed I am! I've been playing for over a year, reached a 40+ level, had hundreds of dragons, multiple islands, and WHAM! suddenly I log in and I'm back to level 1!! It's like I never logged in before. I just updated to the new iOS as I usually do but then this. How do I get my status back??? I have no desire to start all over again so this needs to be fixed. From the last reviews I read, it seems others are experiencing the same or worse scenarios. Please get this back where it should be. I loved this game and enjoyed comparing with my grandson who was thrilled his Grandma liked something he liked. I changed my rating to a 5 because you were able to reload my game back where it belonged and my grandson and I have been enjoying comparing our parks for a couple more years now. But suddenly I seem to be a persona non grata again. I updated the Jolly Jamborie and played just fine for about a week then suddenly every time I log in I get kicked out after a few seconds. This has been going on for about 7 weeks now and I'm to the point of total disgust. For the last week I can't even get the game to download to my iPad. It goes to about half then stops. What is really upsetting is I haven't even been able to get to the options page to send a request for help. So here I am having to do it in the App Store in a review! What is going on??
Definitely recommend!!
by i like iy on 2020/01/19 01:47
I’ve had this game for around 2 years now, and I love it! It’s so much better than the other dragon games. I’m on like level 48 and I’m pretty satisfied with what I have in my park, I have the kairos, the Gaia, Bahamut, and the other one (I forgot what it’s called). But this is like my all time favorite game and I’m like on it 24/7. The only thing that bothers me is I can’t seem to figure out how to get the enchanted breeding cave thing, it’s like the cave with the big purple gem on the top, cause on the “great nogard’s” park when I visit, it has it and when I search it up in the market under buildings I can’t seem to find it, unless u like dis-continued it but that made me kinda upset but hasn’t affected my thoughts on the game overall 🙂. My suggestion for the game would be some improvements in the rift. Yes it’s a very cool now and different realm, the only thing that bugs me is that each time u breed, the price of ethurium goes up, same with clearing the cloud things. It just bugs me. There also should be more ways to gain etherium, cause I only have around 1,000, and like I’m too broke to do anything besides breed like once or twice and even when I do get ethurium from my dragons, it’s a very little amount, and doesn’t even make a dent in how much I have. But that’s what I think of the game, but I still love it 😊 thanks!
Fantastic Game 🤩🤩🤩 WOW!!!
by Charlie7733 on 2018/02/07 03:16
Okay this is a fantastic game with amazing developer support. I got this game back in 2011 when it was brand new on the App Store. I have been playing it ever since then and continues to be my most favorite and most played app. Breeding for and hatching new dragons is always innovative and exciting. Additionally, do not listen to the comments complaining about the Rift prices. While it seems daunting at first, you can slowly build up a good rift that earns you a lot of the etherium quite fast. It is just a different world inside of DragonVale that earns at a rate much slower than standard gold coins. If you spend time hatching dragons in the rift and buying as many habitats as you can, you will start to earn etherium well. Additionally, I made it as far as I have and am currently Level 105 without spending any money until this year. I spent money only for personal enjoyment as they offered surprise dragon eggs to get good dragons you do not currently own. This is a free to play game done right which I have gotten more than my fair share of value from. I really enjoy all the events and they are back to back so you always have something new to work for. Really could not ask for more fun out of a single app in the App Store. Just wow!
Going downhill
by AOG2 on 2018/11/14 19:32
I’ve been playing the game for nearly 5 years, usually logging in 2-3 times daily. It was entertaining and during events I’d often pay $20-30 to buy extras and reward the developers for their work. It’s been nearly two years since I’ve been willing to pay real money toward this game. The changes Hasbro has made, particularly in the last 6 months or so, has begun driving tenured, dedicated players away. Events are nearly back-to-back, there are more limited time items at higher in-game costs, which they are using to try to increase out-of-pocket real money spent by players, and what players need to buy and do in order to “evolve” new dragons have become more complicated. The worst, in my opinion, is the developers and Hasbro do not provide responses to questions by players posted publicly, do not appear to take player feedback into consideration, and do not have a customer service presence on the game’s Facebook page. All of this has led to frustration and feeling the company and developers have lost sight of their customers. A year ago, I would have rated this game 5 stars. Now I had to decide between giving it 2 or 3 stars. If you’re a new player, there will be a lot of content you can’t get to or can’t buy without spending real money. The events will be frustrating for you too. Sorry, Backflip. My time with your game is nearing its end, and my checkbook will no longer open for you.
Resetting and Tutorial
by Iplayedthisgameomg on 2019/09/08 13:22
I would like to be able to reset my uhhh park? (Sorry I haven’t played in a bit) I love these types of games, mostly for the breeding part. But they get kinda boring after awhile. But after a bit I’d love to see all the dragons again! So I re-download the game, and for me I want a fresh start. But when I first get back into the game, all my old stuff is there. I know some people like that, but not me. So, I would like the ability to reset my game. Like the reset button could always be in your settings, or when you first re-download the game a pop up says, “do you want a fresh start?” And if you press yes, “Are you sure?” And if you have rare dragons “ARE YOU SURE??? You have rare dragons that will be deleted forever!” And if you still persist, the game will reset. and getting on to the next topic in my title, (it’s much shorter) after you persisted it would ask, “Do you want the tutorial?” Then if you said yes, you would have a normal tutorial. If you said no, then you would start of with an the state of your park(?) just like how it is after you finish the tutorial. Dragons and all. Then if the player is struggling, (with or without the tutorial) give them a nudge in the right direction. I really like this game and others like it, so this really is my only logical place to complain about the game. Thanks for reading!
Good, I guess
by Is this the best u can do? on 2019/02/16 17:49
This is a really good game, and I play it almost every day, but I’m on level 72 and I feel like there’s nowhere left to go. I mean, I have all three legendary dragons, and I’ve unlocked everything. Now when I level up, the only thing that changes is I can build one more habitat. But that’s literally it. Did you guys program this thinking that no one would make it that far, and that’s why there’s nothing new? I mean, I can still participate in the holiday things, like the rift event and the Valentine’s Day event, but there’s no challenge to the game anymore. I really wish you’d make another legendary dragon, that’d be pretty fun. Also, I’m pretty sure the legendary vault dragon has a glitch. If I collect 1,000 abundant essence I can collect all the money, gems, food, and rift currency in my park. However if I collect 10,000 abundant essence and I go onto the legendary vault dragon’s profile, I can choose to “power him up”. I tried this, and it did NOTHING. When I did this I thought it would fill all my habitats to the max and collect the money but it didn’t. In fact, it didn’t even collect the money I DID have. It literally did NOTHING. I did this a second time, just to make sure I was correct in assuming it was malfunctioning and I got the same results as the first time. Please fix this, or at least add a warning to the game saying that powering the vault dragon up won’t do anything. Thanks, I guess.
Love this game but disappointed!!
by QUEENSIA24 on 2018/05/08 14:11
I recently found this game and started to play it for a couple months religiously!!!! I had a variety of dragons and I was even at a pretty high level! I’ve grown to love the game I even spent money on this game because of how addictive it is! Haha but just about a week ago I LOST EVERYTHING! My app would not open so I deleted it and re-downloaded it and logged back in to find that everything was gone. I was livid. Even though I was so upset I hung in and restarted due to how much I just love this game and trust me I don’t have much games on my phone so it was surprising to me how much I still wanted to try and start over and continue. So now I’m back to square one and trying to hope that this doesn’t happen again I do truly enjoy the game so it really was a bummer. Every time I want to open the app I have to re-download it because it just won’t let me open it. It’s starting to get frustrating and I’m starting to get irritated because I want to play the game and then I have to re-download it every time for it to work!? Are you serious I don’t have the time for that and if this continues I will no longer play this game. I’ve been putting up with this for a while but it’s really starting to be annoying and honestly sad that y’all haven’t done anything about it I’ve seen lots of comments about this and nothing has been done. Hopefully this gets fixed and I can continue to play the game that I love.🐉💗
Favorite game until the new Rift
by LadyFuryKT on 2017/10/06 19:32
I've played this game every day for nearly a year now. It's been my favorite mobile game by far. I loved the Rift when it first came out. It was unique and the new dragons were really cool. However, the new Rift is confusing at best, and frustrating at worst. The currency is so hard to get, and you have to spend more than you're getting in order to progress. At least in older updates, you may have needed to spend a little money here and there to get everything you wanted out of it. Now it's like you can't get ANYTHING without having to spend actual money on it. I understand the developers have to make money, but this feels like they're trying to take advantage of their customers' loyalty by making progress impossible without spending money. And what's even more annoying is the fact that I can't even OPEN the game anymore. When the new Rift started, I basically opened the game to get my daily reward, collect my food and money, and then quit. Now the last couple days I can't even do that. So I'm a little annoyed that I had over 200 consecutive days playing this game, and now I'm back to 0 because of these bugs. Before this, I would've given this game 5 stars. If the developers can get things back on track, and make updates and events that aren't filled with bugs and confusing gameplay, I would give it 5 stars again.
Dragon story is not better?
by 💕🐞💐❤️🎉 on 2019/11/03 16:08
I have played this game and dragon story and all dragon story ever did was ask for my money. There were many things you could only get in the game if you spent a ton of money on gold. There were so many pop ups and I really didn’t want to spend my money on a game I didn’t really even enjoy. DragonVale is better in so many ways. You don’t actually need to spend money to progress, and it is a lot easier to get gems, the equivalent to dragon story gold. It is also extremely hard to progress in dragon story, so much so it gets frustrating. Not sure how people ever though dragon story was better? Many young kids also play dragon story, and I bet many of them have spend hundreds of their parents money on gold so they can progress. Dragon story is very obviously geared towards younger kids. The graphics are colorful and childish, and elements have colors like “green” and “red” instead of the fire or plant elements. The dragonvale lore is also much more compelling than that if dragon story. Dragon story feels like every other dragon game, begging for your money constantly just to progress, but dragon vale feels like someone actually put work into, and it wasn’t just a quick cash grab.
Copy of dragon story?
by cactus.l.explorer on 2019/08/14 13:54
Ok, to start off I’m just going to say this is a pretty good game. I had tried it before, and had some trouble with the intro, but a week or so ago I made a new island and started over. I like the jam-packed events and the variety of dragons. The cooperative breeding cave is also a pretty unique idea. Now let’s think of other dragon games. I have been playing dragon story for about 6 years now. I am almost at level 100, and have unlocked pretty much everything you can get. I have quite a few dragons, and I can see the similarity between some of the dragons in DS and DragonVale. In a lot of dragon games, actually. I mean, the colosseum looks very similar to the DS battle arena, and the whole rift thing seems to me, in a way, like the magic portal. I can see similarities to other games too. Another storm 8 game, pet shop story, has the visitors who just walk around too. They look very similar to there visitors, and about the same age variety too(older people, kids, teenagers). It’s even similar to the fri ckin My Little Pony app, where if you hold an object for 3 seconds, you go into edit mode. So honestly this game is pretty nice, good concept, well made, but it seems to me like there’s too much similarity. Otherwise I would recommend this game, but honestly DS is way, WAY better. So I would recommend doing your research before you get this game.
Almost Perfect
by Millsy s.b park on 2019/02/14 00:37
I have been playing this game since elementary school. I grew up playing it. I had the light and dark rift dragons when they were both light/dark. I got ovalith in the original event it was offered. I played it when the apocalypse dragon was introduced for the 2012 mayan thing. This game is addictive and has staying power. The dragons mostly look cool and the events are mostly fun. Mostly. They kinda got worse but the 2019 gardenia event looks fantastic. But there’s a few flaws I would like to address 1. Evolved dragons. No one likes them, they are a pain to get, and they stress everyone out. PLEASE quit using these. It just seems like a cash grab. The whole point is to breed dragons, not to evolve them. At least make it possible to get them in co-op if you don’t already have one. I need the corrupticorn! 2. Ghostly Dragons. This is just lazy. You literally reskinned old dragons and they are hard to breed as it’s impossible to tell if it’s gonna be ghostly or not. It also leaves the expectation that you will eventually have ghostly dragons for all the elemental and special ones, which I doubt you’ll do. 3. Races. They suddenly got really hard and even with all perfect you get second place. I get making it a little harder, but it shouldn’t be impossible if you have the right elements.
Sadly Deleting After Eight Years
by gyhhbgh on 2019/05/12 13:00
I got this game close to when it came out. My girlfriend's family showed me it so I could play with the kids. They were around level 30 when I first started with the mom at 50. Eventually they stopped playing and I kept up every day and eventually made it to level 125, all the islands, all the major decorations, but never all the dragons. I have always been missing anywhere from 3-5 and I've always gotten close. Recently since BackFlip has created more barriers to getting event dragons that can only be solved by paying money I am deciding to quit DragonVale. I really wanted to keep up but I feel like that 3-5 is becoming 10-14 and increasing after every event. The grind to keep up is becoming difficult and unrewarding. After this 2019 Easter event I was on the game five times a day collecting eggs and I still wasn't even close to getting all the event dragons. I am five dragons behind and I feel like I can never catch up. And this is after playing the game so long that finally I feel helpless. The Pokémon Go game gave me a similar feeling where they kept adding barriers to the game and alienated fans until the game died. I hope that doesn't happen for the other fans of this game, but unfortunately for me I will be retiring my park. Thank you BackFlip for the eight years and good luck improving your game.
DragonVale Review
by Nina-Corn on 2019/05/12 22:49
This app is amazing, no lie. It is a really fun app where you can buy, breed, and take care of your dragons. DragonVale is a free app, except for optional purchases. And the optional purchases don’t even cost that much. One thing that I do appreciate is that the game providers help you a lot! At the beginning when you first download the game, they basically tell what the game is about, how it works, etc. Then once you finish reading the prologue, they show you the ropes to it. They teach you where to buy certain items, how to get money and gems, and even really easy things like how to breed just In case you get confused. Then there are things like goals, which once you finish them, you can get prizes, like coins, gems, and level boosts. It is a really fun game and I highly recommend that you get it, ever since I had downloaded the app, I have had no concerns, or problems, or anything similar. Hopefully you have as much fun with the game as I have, and again I am here to remind you that it is the most amazing game ever. This is the best review I have given, since this app is such high quality, and I can guarantee that you will definitely enjoy DragonVale. That is all, goodbye!
Best Dragon Game Ever!
by Lusnowdrop on 2019/10/05 18:12
I’ve been playing this game for so long, longer than I can remember. I love this game because you can accomplish almost ANYTHING without paying a dime. I only spent money to reward the developers for keeping the game alive. The newest Paradise event has been amazing! I’ve gotten so many limited new epic dragons without paying any money. This game truly rewards players for their hard work and the thing I love most about it is the simplicity. Although events do go back to back, there’s always something new to get in this game. I’ve been playing Dragon Story and Dragon City too and I love both of them but not nearly as much as this dragon collecting game. The simplicity of this game is shown by the lack of complicated battles, lack of so many structures that you have to constantly check and I love it. I want to play everyday to farm etherium to collect more gemstone dragons via the eggs. Yes, the rift is very hard but once you get the hang of it and breed your first epic dragon and find a sustainable food growing method you can make it so you gather over 2,500 etherium in just about 6-5 hours. I love this game so much, and the new dragons are so awesome! Keep up the great work.
Great, but glitches outta be fixed

I'm going to preface this by saying that I've been playing this game for over fives years now. Recently, I've been finding it difficult to keep up with the amount of dragons that exist. I play during the events, but dozens of dragons keep getting added at a place that I can keep up with. I like that because it keeps the game interesting and allows long term players like me to not get bored by having every dragon and having no room for improvement. That's fine, but it's been growing exponentially which is absolutely ridiculous and impossible to keep up with. Another thing: the rift. I think it's pretty great that there's a new type of dragon and an entirely new "world" for them. However, the amount of food required to level up these dragons is difficult for an experienced player to keep up with, let alone a newbie. I pity the people who just started playing and unlock the rift at level 28 or whatever and are overwhelmed by the new content. That aside, I haven't been able to even open the game for a couple days now. Every time I try, the logo appears, and then I get immediately kicked out of the app. If you guys could address this problem, that would be fantastic.
Can not get into the game.
by OrignalPlayer on 2019/10/18 01:01
I have been playing this game since it came out. They require you to get all the islands, themes, 3 different kinds of dragons (regular, twin and rift version), pedestals, decorations, literally EVERYTHING they come out with. When you do so the game becomes so large that you can no longer open the game to play. The events come out way too often making it impossible to get the new dragons and whatever crazy idea they come up with as far as enhancements or versions. The amount of event currency you can earn and what you need to get the new dragons is no where near each other. They recommend once you do get everything they ask for that you turn everything off or hide it because the game is too large to be played on your cell phone. They came out with a low resolution mode and it does nothing to help this issue. Unless you’re looking to spend lots of $$$ and waste your time trying to breathe fire, this game is not for you. Their customer service is such a joke. Report an issue getting into the game and they ask for your ID number. If you can not get into your park, you can not provide them the ID number. A lot of people have quit playing this game of their own free will and there are thousands more who are completely locked out of our games that want to try to play and can’t. Don’t be another victim. Find a different game through a different company.
I love this game but it is a SCAM.
by jordanaliwhite on 2019/03/19 18:18
I’ve been binge playing this Game for months it was my favorite game. When I started to really get into it I noticed how when I would play the Colosseum, it would not reward me my gems. I genuinely thought I could get over that, but the more I think about it the more angry I get. This game is asking you to pay your hard earned money on gems, and when you actually earn them in the game they aren’t received. What really set me over the edge though, Is the Valentine’s Day event. There was a certain level of prizes I was aiming for which were the Daisy prizes. The game and information explains that by earning daily prizes (visiting your park every day and earning a prize for it), you will unlock more levels of prizes for your park. I had collected all of the prices necessary to unlock the daisy prizes. But they were still locked, and the information said that I had to unlock two more prizes for that level. So I continued for two more days just to see if it would count, it didn’t. So I decided to just spend my 11,000 roses on first level prizes. When I did that though, I got a notification claiming that I had in fact unlocked the daisy prizes. Imagine that frustration. I don’t have the money to be spending on gems for a phone game. So I earn them by playing The game and watching stupid inconvenient ads. So when I watch the ads and win gold medals, I expect to earn my gems.
One of my favorite games of all time
by PigDoodles on 2019/09/16 13:12
An absolutely incredible game, especially for a mobile game. There are many brave things most mobile developers wouldn’t do out if fear of costs to their business, but Backflip develops this game purely out of heart and soul. Kairos, the legendary dragon of time, allows you to fast-forward time completely free, something you’d normally have to at least pay an in-game currency for. You can use a currency to skip the cooldown on the ability, but you don’t need it. And Gaia, the legendary nest dragon, can hatch any egg instantly, and speeds up the incubation of dragon eggs. Nearly every dragon has an amazing design - and there are over 500! It’s not overly difficult or pay-to-win - they even have dragons that produce the magical gemstones that most games would make practically exclusive to ads and in-app purchases. Every limited-time dragon returns at least twice per year with the Bring ‘Em Back event (and this year there are three!) and all of them can be obtained without buying them. There’s an in-game breeding hint menu that tells you what combos you will need for certain dragons. All in all, this game is full of charm and super well made.
HOW TO GET ETHERIUM!!!
by Emily2345 on 2017/10/12 09:48
To everyone complaining about how hard it is to get Etherium and how expensive everything is in the Rift: You’re doing it wrong!! Stop everything you’re doing: stop clearing Ether and stop breeding dragons above 200 Etherium in cost! Buy habitats instead, the more habitats you have the more Etherium you get, which allows for even more habitats! Then upgrade the habitats. It’s exponential! I have 9 Regal habitats (highest ones with a max of 200 Etherium each) and 7 Refined (second highest with 135 Etherium each), which fill up every about 2 hours, and I haven’t paid a single dime in real money. By now I discovered the buildings and have been easily breeding dragons too, worth several thousand Etherium a day, but I didn’t start with that, I started with the habitats. Now about the exorbitant costs to feed the Rift dragons... that’s a whole different story. There’s no exponential growth to be had in this case. And it’s annoying that they didn’t use to cost that much before the upgrade. Oh well. But other than this, I love the game. It’s not easy, but it’s still possible to play without paying money, if you focus on growth first.
I loved this game 😞
by Lmastre on 2019/08/23 05:13
I've been playing DragonVale for just over 4 years. I used to really enjoy playing, raising dragons, trying to get all the different breeds, decorating my park, etc. I always made sure I checked in every day, to at least collect the cash. They would, for special occasions, have an 'Event' where you could earn 'magic essence', flowers, coins, or some other form of currency. It used to be that if, you worked really hard at it and maxed out how much of this special currency you could earn (they put a limit on how much you can make), you could just barely get all or most of the special, limited time dragons, and decorations. The developers are now greedy jerks, who have made it impossible to come even close to earning enough for HALF of the limited time items! This most recent event, I figured up that I would've had to spend over $100 to get enough 'magic essence' to get the items, let alone the dragons. This would've been on top of what I earned every day! I have gotten so sick of not even coming close, that I gave up on trying to get them all, and actually FORGOT to check in on some days. I hadn't forgotten since I started the game, ESPECIALLY during an event. I've been thinking about deleting it, I just hate all the time I've wasted on this, just to have it turn sour. I thought I'd try to save someone all the heartache that comes with this game.
Disappointed long term player:(
by Poison karma on 2018/12/03 18:57
I love the dragons and the game but! yes there is a but! I have been playing this game since the beginning & I spent over $200 on this game and now the events are impossible to get done in time. It was a Christmas event, Christmas is supposed to be a gift, a thanks for playing your game something not so stressful. I sent a message to the developers asking for help and never received anything back. I have only sent a message one other time and the person was really rude to me. I don't feel for the money spent I get the help and courtesy I deserved in return:( I hope the developers will rectify this. Update on my last review: still disappointed in the game only now it got worse “yes” worse. I can’t believe it’s Christmas again and the events got everyone I know to quit playing. What a sad thing. I just can’t put anymore money into a game that the developers don’t read their reviews and address them:( I always use to get the new dragons and then spend money on extra decorations I wanted and felt happy about spending money. If I spend money to get the new dragons that the developers have made it impossible to get without spending money, I will only be making it worse. If you want people to spend money “make the game fun again”
loved it, but....
by dragonvaleplayer36 on 2019/06/26 17:34
dragonvale is literally my childhood that i never grew out of but it’s changed. if you want to place more habitats and your under the limit you either pay a buttload of gems for ONE habitat. ONE! that’s all you get! and when you level up you get ONE more habitats! to be more specific, you only get ONE more habitat if you level up. it’s frustrating. i had to update my dragonarium(i’m pretty sure that’s what it is called) which stores extra dragons. bc they want my money to either pay for ONE extra habitat or to update my dragonarium is absolutely ridiculous. redeem yourselves and make the game great again. let us have more habitats and have it not all about the $$$$$$!!!! also, my dragonvale takes AGES to get past the loading screen you get when you first click on the app. All of this has been causing me to progressively not play the game as much. you don’t get the bang for your buck and i’m very disappointed. if these problems were fixed, this game would without a doubt be 5 stars, but until then.... 2 is enough. it seems that dragonvale is trying to take advantage of its dragonvale lovers, it’s like you can’t really progress in the game if it doesn’t include money. what a shame. such a great game taking advantage. i know the developers need money but come ON people. my favorite game ruined.😭
THIS APP IS A GREEDY MONEY GRAB DO NOT GET IT
by WildDragonGirl1 on 2018/08/18 17:54
Hey it's been awhile but I want to point out that this app is a greedy grab for money. You have to buy pretty much everything. And it's stupid. If you get an egg, it takes up to 24 hours to hatch. If you breed dragons, they take up to 24 hours to finish doing their thing. If you pay to remove a big stone or tree, it takes up to 24 hours. And if you want any of these things to speed up you have to pay real money for it. It's impossible to earn gems, it's really hard to get enough treats to feed ALL your dragons unless you wait 24 hours for the treats, and if you have your dragon go into the colosseum to take part in an event, you don't get to see it or anything. You have to wait 24 hours, and you don't even see the competition taking place. It's such a hopeless money grab. I have been tricked into almost buying something many times. Thankfully I managed to back out of it quickly. I've heard people say that this app randomly charges your account $15. A scam. It's misusing your credit card information. That's scary. So please be careful and do not buy this. PREVIOUS REVIEW Okay, I loved this game. But you can't tell the in-app purchases from the items that are purchased with fake coins! I almost bought things with real money on several occasions because it was impossible to tell the difference. Such a let down, honestly.
GET THIS GAME!!!
by Madelyn Dogwater on 2017/11/19 02:07
This is literally my favorite game right now!! The dragons are so cute and i love them!! ❤️❤️ Anyways you get to have as many islands as your heart can cram in, and you can have as many dragons as you want!! If that’s not enough, there is fun seasonal events that bring you seasonal dragons!! I’m posting this around thanksgiving and right now the thanksgiving Om of Noms event is going on, such cute dragons, haven’t got one yet because i don’t have enough spices (little cookie shaped things that help you earn prizes) to get the Harvest Dragon but i was talking and being weird just talking to the dragons on my phone and i promised the dragon i would get him as soon as i could. So yea, luv this game 5 stars from me!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️😂😂😂😅😅😅 Whew!! That was a lot to let out!😅😅 Btw if your still reading, the only bad thing i have found out of the time i have been playing is that sometimes it’s hard not to spend REAL money to make progress, i know from personal experience. Me: “I NEED TO BUY THESE GEMS!! THE BREEDING/HATCHING/ANYTHING IS TAKING FOREVER!! GOTTA SPEED IT UP WITH GEMMZZZZ!!” Yea i get carried away, i think i have spent $30 on this game, I’m very mindless at times....😬😬
Great game!
by SuperAirDog on 2018/04/11 22:03
Overall this game is great! Something that’s better about this game than other breeding games is that it doesn’t pressure you to spend money to get progress. Whenever I played other breeding games, it would get to a certain point where things that are required to make process cost way to much for how much currency you get. This game doesn’t do that and allows players to make progress. It also gives players a large amount of chances to get the special currency (in this game it’s “gems”) which can be used for upgrades and such, which are not necessarily needed to make process. One chance it gives to make an extra gem is whenever you get an achievement (for example, breeding a specific type of dragon for the first time), you can share it on Facebook (used to be both Facebook and Twitter) which gives you extra gem. However, I don’t know if this is happening to anyone else, but whenever I try to post something on Facebook, it will say “posted” but the game will proceed to crash and not give me a gem. I’ve been sorta annoyed by this, but other than that I love this game.
This game is amazing!
by MackZ3 on 2019/07/07 07:08
Dragonvale has got to be one of-if not the- best dragon based games I’ve ever played. I never get bored with the plethora of dragons I can unlock and breed... especially when I have the corresponding breeding guide to get the dragons I need or want. With the rift update back then, I found it fair. Let me explain: With the ether you have to clear, the amount goes up by 25’s (I think). It’s not that big of a deal if you do a lot of the dragon quests and races and save up a lot like I do. Patience is also key for getting enough of... anything really. You don’t have to spend actually money unless it’s buy more gems, Dragoncash (but why would you?), and ether in the shop. And that stuff you can collect without paying actual money for it and I like that. You only have to pay if you don’t like to wait. Breeding dragon can “iffy” at times, but overall, I have no complaints. Only some ideas: Dragons modeled after the constellations would be nice. We already have the category of Galaxy Dragons, why have some modeled after the constellations? Keep up the great work Backflip. I can’t wait for more!
More dream dragons
by MrMeeeeSeeeks on 2018/05/23 02:39
We first got this game for my nephew who loves dragons but was a little to young to read. So naturally we had to read him any notification and all the dragon info. Later he grew bored so naturally we had to take it over since it's so addictive. Ok where is the dream island theme? That's all I really want. Also more dream dragons, more scary looking dragons. Now let's have fewer dragons that look like chickens or dragons that were designed by an 8 year old girl. Looking at you "love" dragon. 2 more things. 1 more snow covered trees, make sure one of them has no leaves. 2 give us the option to turn off the blue glow on twin eggs. Also to anybody looking to download this game and is worried about in app purchases don't be. You really don't have to spend anything on this game more than 95% of our park is free to play. The other 5% is me wanting to send the developers money. I know this game is free but I want them to continue updating it so buy things from time to time. If you don't want to that's fine you can literally get everything in this game with enough patience.
Fun, but there are issues
by Ohsnapadoodledoo on 2018/08/06 23:00
Hi, I have been playing dragon vale for 7 years now and I have been able to obtain many rare dragons. This game is about time and getting all the dragons. Although this game is very creative I have a couple of issues with the game! 1st of all gems are way to hard to get. That's a simple one but I wouldn't be mad if you kept it the same. 2- it took so much time to get gem dragons, but when I got them they only create 1 gem 1week or 1 gem a month. Saying this I think that lowering the time limit you have to wait would be nice. 3. Galaxy islands cost way to much. I have so much money in game and can't buy a 3rd island. 4. I respect the price of a main island (cause they are islands) but once you buy it, I don't think you should have to wait a day to use it. Finally 5. The perch of kairos doesn't speed everything up. It doesn't speed up the colosseum, It doesn't speed up islands. ( pretty sure ) so that's something I really don't like. Don't get me wrong I love the game so much! I even try to encourage my friends to play it. If your just reading this review because you want to see if it's good, it's great! Anyway those are my thoughts.
Love it but...
by KD7654 on 2018/05/07 17:15
I really love this game and have played it for years now, but it seems as though the company is starting to get a little greedy. During special events we used to get daily prizes and games to earn stars/eggs/presents (whatever we happen to be earning during that event) but we don’t get those things anymore. It’s nearly impossible to collect all the daily “points”. The prizes that you can purchase with your collected “points” have gone up in price and so many new things added that even when I start the event already having half or more of the items there is no way possible, unless you spend real money, to even get anywhere close to collecting everything. There is also no group prize anymore where the community collects their extra points together to earn a prize. In order to collect all the stars so far in this event I have had to spend every single etherium I had saved up. I started a few days ago with over 110,000, trying to save up for new habitats, and I now have none. I had to use it ALL to hatch eggs to earn points. Which of course means I won’t be able to collect all the points today since I have none left and have a long breed or two going. I wish it were less - BUY BUY BUY - now and more - FUN FUN FUN - like it used to be.
DragonVale
by dedicatedfew on 2019/04/08 17:16
I have played this game for over five years. A couple of times I have had literally every dragon. This game is fun, inexplicably addictive, and very engaging. BUT. In the past I could spend a bit of money here and there, kept up with everything just fine. Now there are insatiable demands to put money into this game by the developers, or you simply cannot hope to get the dragons you want. I don’t know how new folks don’t quit and give up. With literally hundreds of dragons now, special events virtually non-stop, and limited edition dragons available for such short times that you HAVE to spend money to get them, this game has become a serious downer. I used to be able to cycle through friends and only give gems to folks every couple of days because so many were playing. Only four are left...get it together, Backflip. You are ruining a game many of us have played for 5+years and made it so difficult for new players I have folks on my list that quit by level 14. Small amounts of money here or there are one thing. Charging non-stop “acquisition rent” causes the game to lose its appeal and playability. So disappointed with the direction this game has taken. Wouldn’t recommend to new players and can barely recommend those who have played for years.
Awesome w/ a few exceptions
by Tapfrogs on 2018/11/01 19:56
I love Dragonvale; I played at its release, quit for about two years, and am back now. I like their addition of new dragons every so often, and they have done well with it for the past few months. However, I recently unlocked Tai’shen or whatever the coin-collecting Mythic dragon’s name is, and I am highly displeased. So much work and patience for a dragon to give me 5% of my total coin capacity. Really weak and deflating once unlocked; makes the effort and patience unrewarding. And lastly, the latest Whitbee Halloween event is and was HORRID. Worst imaginable event. Way too difficult, confusing, and impossible to obtain even close to everything unless you want to spend an ungodly amount of gems (not just hundreds, thousands). Way too many new dragons and the having to sacrifice your already-owned dragons and earned candy to evolve them into the new dragons, or to use your candy to transform other dragons into ghost forms. Stupid, awful, wearing event. Please don’t make the same mistake for Thanksgiving or Christmas! Please Backflip, I love this game, as do so many others. Don’t get greedy; you have my loyalty... for now. Don’t ruin your game.
Highly recommended. 🐉
by KingofStuffs on 2018/05/04 03:35
I love this game. It’s probably the first of the dragon breeding simulation games, and is by far the best. The progress is perfectly paced and the game play is engaging. It is possible to spend money on the game, but not required whatsoever. However, this is a long term game. You cannot beat it in a month. It will take years. I consider this a good thing, as it means you will get content for a very long time. For casual people, I warn you, it will take a REALLY long time. I reached level 100 in about a year, but I play it a lot. A LOT. Also, Backflip adds new content all the time, so it’s kind of impossible to really “beat the game.” I know this bugs some people, myself included. You can 100% it, but in two months they’ll just add more stuff. All in all, an incredibly fun game experience that I suggest you try if you like long term thinking games. P.S. To all you people whining that the Rift is too hard and slow without money, I have all rift exclusives but three, tons of rift touched, and have cleared most of the etherium. All without spending a DIME.
I Love This Game but Some Problems
by TrashAtClash on 2017/12/16 13:31
I have been playing dragonvale from the start, and when I got a new phone, i still downloaded the game even if that meant starting over in the game. I am probably better than most of these commenters, not to brag but I am level 45 and have 69 epic dragons. This game is one of my favorites, but recently it has been acting up and clicking out of the app sometimes and also it says a wizard cast a spell on my park at least once before I am able to get in my park. Can you please fix this? Thanks, and when is the winter update coming out? I am looking for some new dragons :) Ok, so adding on to these problems I am also filing a complaint too, sorry. At least half of the times I log in it tells me to check out some rift dragon and I can’t click out of it, so I have to go to rift then to market are check out whatever new rift dragon I haven’t gotten, even though I just wanted to check up on my park. It is very annoying and can you please make this happen MUCH less or let you be able to tap out? Thanks for making a great game!
❤️❤️love it❤️❤️
by annony-moose on 2019/03/23 04:06
Even though it was a tiny bit boring at first, now it is my number one favorite app. I love getting new dragons and islands and around every corner, I say “I didn’t know that this game could do that!” I love how you can name your dragons things to go with how they look and act. The only problem I have is that the “Great” Nogard has a lot less than me in everything except for gems. This is the best game you can get on a mobile device. A question I have about the game is, why is DragonVale better than DragonVale World? It was made beforehand. Finally, about two years ago, I was into the level 60s, when BAM! I was back with a brand new park at level one. I was ready to quit the game forever, but I decided to give it one more go. I am so thankful I did and now I have things in the game that I wouldn’t have ever thought would be in it. If you read that entire thing you are tough. Pat yourself on the back. Also, for you people who had everything deleted, back it up onto whatever you can. I back it up onto Game Center AND google in case there is a glitch.
Awesome must try.
by Shrimpy 591 on 2019/04/10 17:56
No one has to spend money. If you do you’re addicted to competing with other players. I love the game yes I spend some money, but not tons. They need some money from all player to keep the game going . So I’ll spend some every now and then. With that said I love the game and their challenges. The events are not made to be played with the thought that “ I must get every dragon in the event now” it to be play with the under standing that it’s a challenge and you work hard for the ones you can get before it ends. If you even get one you Accomplished something . All the dragons in the event will return next year. And you might be able to breed them before that. This is a very fun and awesome event. And a very fun ,well played out game . Enjoy it stop trying to keep up with the people who buy the way through. And please stop whining. I would like to thank backflip for continuous events that are challenging , not boring , creative and cute. I love your game. Please continue to surprise us with your events and new dragons. Thank you loyal DragonVale player.
Amazing game, but a few minor things...
by Kay as other on 2017/12/24 01:56
I want to start this out by saying I’ve had the game for 6 years. That may bias me a bit, but it’ll also mean I know what I’m talking about a little more. This game has a very unique atmosphere about it, and it appears that it’s the first dragon-breeding game to ever come out on the App Store, so that earns it quite a bit of respect. The animations are really cute and the holiday/bi-monthly events that take place make people keep coming back for more. Breeding dragons is fun and it feels so rewarding when you finally get that rare/epic dragon you’ve been hoping for. However, one thing that has always been true about this game is that it’s got a very long loading time. That is, the game’ll take about 5-10 minutes just to get itself booted up at the start. From then on, it’s pretty smooth sailing except for the occasional crash (which’ll happen with any app from time to time) All in all though, Dragonvale is a very fun game with unique dragons, unique ideas, and definitely worth a download!
Love It So Much But A Few Things...
by no no no no no no no mo on 2019/09/29 23:56
Ok I love the game and idea of DragonVale. For example and one reason I like it is there are a variety of dragons, buildings, decorations, habitats, and island themes/islands to choose from. But, a few things I don’t like are that a lot of things cost thousands of gems and you can pay up to $100!!!!!! That’s a ridiculous amount of money to be spending on an app!! Some solutions might be to have a trade center where you could trade any of your currency or items for a certain amount of gems. Also, some things take waaaaaayyyyyy too long to be done. But, I gave the app a five star review because there are also different events that go on in DragonVale. You can buy lots of cool things and dragons with whatever currency goes with that event. Also the contribution center which really has a boost for XP. Also I like the way you can go on quests and races for prize and pieces to unlock legendary dragons. That’s what’s really cool to me, how you can do different things to get pieces for legendary and mythical dragons. Thanks!!
DragonVale
by Jay_grace on 2017/12/17 13:55
I personally like this game. The game is like a story. Every dragon has its own little description and background. The names of wizards or witches can sometimes appear more than once and it makes the experience all the better. I started this game when it first came out and I’m still loving it. I love the constant updates because it means that the app always has something new. I just wish that gems weren’t so hard to get. I’ve most likely spent over hundred dollars on gems but you lose gems so quickly in the game that you spend a lot and gain little. It takes so long to just reach hundred gems but you can lose all of them in less than a hour. I wish it could be easier to gain gems and cost of using gems were less. I love the game anyway but it’s costly. P.s. I think DragonVale should have a special when it’s made into a story or history special. I think that it would be amazing because I find myself wondering what the story behind DragonVale is and its history (even if it just a game).
I love it but...
by SHADE91736 on 2019/09/04 12:45
I love the game it’s amazing but there’s just a few things I really get annoyed at, first it’s so hard to level up I always get duplicate dragons and for the “but”..the updates are amazing but for me it just seems harder and harder to get the rare dragons like I understand it isn’t easy to get good dragons but like I’m mostly getting fire and plant dragons, and also the npc “The great nogard “ just makes me feel sad and let’s me down kinda like not with words like his park every new update gets released he gets all the dragons on the spot and when I visit his park I feel like I would never be able to get good stuff like he have five sun dragons and 4 mom dragons and a lot more legendary dragons, me and my sister just started playing last year and and we just feel sad when a new update comes out and I’m not blaming the update i love em all just the great nogard makes us feel bad he’s like bragging kinda i don’t know how to explain it, and maybe tone down the diamonds for the dragons like I get if there a lot of diamonds but like it’s to much for my opinion T~T that’s it for now bye!!!
Awesome Game!
by MLP gamer 72 on 2019/03/03 16:04
This game is awesome! There’s collecting, decorating, cute dragons, rare dragons, and much more! I would say this game is perfect, but it’s not. Many things take a LONG TIME. Racing, breeding, hatching. Sometimes I’m like “FINALLY! It’s taken eight hours, and my dragons are done breeding!” And then I’m like, “Oh wait! That’s right! Another eight hours of waiting for my egg to hatch!” Sometimes that time is wasted, because I know what dragon is hatching (because of the colors and patterns on the egg) and I already have it! Also, WAY too many things cost gems, I have millions of coins, and only 250 gems. And EVERYTHING costs gems. Well, ok, I might be exaggerating, but still! And I get the things that cost gems are meant to be “rare” but that’s a lot of rare stuff! Also sometimes the events last so long! An event that was CLEARLY meant for Valentine’s Day, is still going on! And it’s March 3rd. And I don’t really like the Event, I like seeing my dragons colors. In conclusion DEFINITELY buy the game, but there are a few things the developers should fix.
Great game that is forever fun.
by mvirgo17 on 2019/06/07 21:58
I’ve read many reviews on this game that complain that you have to spend money to enjoy it, or that everything takes too long (which I did believe at first), and that’s not the truth at all! I play this game every single day and there’s always something new to enjoy. Dragons may cost a lot of gems to buy straight from the store, but if you know your breeding strategies, there is no need to even visit the store. I’ve not spent a single penny on this game and I’ve reached level 32 in the span of a month and a half. To enjoy this game, you need patience, because yes, breeding and building takes awhile. But if you leave it for a few hours and do something else, the time goes by so quickly. There are many things to do: racing, rolling dice in the mystic hall, rearranging your island (which I do every other day practically lol), breeding cool dragons, etc. DragonVale hasn’t gotten old yet and I don’t suspect that it will! I highly recommend this game to anyone who appreciates good quality graphics, exciting events, and the chance to build your own world.

So I’ve been playing DragonVale for a while now. I just passed 100 days a few weeks ago and I don’t have very many complaints about the game. There are however a few things that bother me. 1- making friends. I do not have a Facebook that I use. My friends do not have a Facebook that they use. It is a little unfair for us because the only way to have friends in dragonvale is through Facebook. It should be as easy as searching for their park name and boom there it is. But sadly this isn’t the case. 2- celebration organization. Whenever new decorations come out they make it really easy to buy one of them. Then you have to scroll and scroll and scroll until you find all of the others because there isn’t a section for just the celebration decorations. It would make it so much easier to be able to get them all if they had a “ featured “ section or something 3- thankfully there are a lot of themes that run in the game like The Om of Noms and Roar of the Rift and all of the others but when there isn’t one of these going on I find the game to be not as fun. I get a little board with it. If there were more little mini games and stuff even when the theme isn’t going on it might be a little more fun. That’s really all I have to say. I enjoy the rift even though I don’t expand it very much (I really don’t need to). I really enjoy breeding all of my dragons and organizing my park but I REALLY would like to be able to visit more parks and make more friends. Thanks !!,
Getting fed up with the changes
by ......Please Read on 2018/11/17 17:47
I’ve been playing this game since about a year after it was released and I had been loving until about the last year of updates. The events are so short and one right after the other giving the players no time to relax and get other dragons that are not part of events. Instead of a week to get your prizes once the event ends you have 24 hours and no time to waste. Everything in the events cost way to much and it’s impossible to get the amount of event currency you need to buy even one dragon. For example, it’s about eleven days into the most current event and I only have a 2,000 treats and only getting about 500 out of the 1000 allowed in a day (Which the limit itself is unnecessary). It’s just going down hill as the only way to get anything in events now is to spend money, which I refuse to do. From the newest update the thing I hate the most is how once your dragons are done breeding it takes you automatically to the nursery. Stop. Get rid of it. It’s just a pain and does not help anything. So please game developers; read the reviews and make the changes because your game is becoming less and less enjoyable.
Love it! With a great response team
by dawn2evening on 2018/02/23 17:21
I can’t say DragonVale has been glitch free over the years, but, most of them have been relatively minor. I can say that all of them are resolved very quickly, and in most cases with apology gifts to boot. I love DragonVale. I've been playing since the game launched, with only one hiatus due to a loss of a loved one. I do like the rift, it takes a good strategy, but there are perks to it. I admit some of it is frustrating though . The extreme increase in dragon treats needed to level is just ridiculous considering how costly it is to plant food. The extremely low success rate to breed the new rift breeds is very frustrating too. Please consider removing or raising habitat limits. There's a self imposed limit space-wise anyways. Also, PLEASE find a new way to add friends since game center app was removed by apple. I do not do social media, so I'd really appreciate being able to use an in game network to add friends, or at least be able to type in their ID to send a friend request. Thanks!!
DragonVale is simply amazing
by Madmonster112 on 2017/11/25 18:18
DragonVale has always been an amazing game because it doesn't force you down a path where you can't choose but gives you the basics and just throws you into the game. It doesn't force you to watch ads to progress and just asks if you would like to watch an ad for a simple coin or gem boost. Most apps like to throw ads in your face after every thing you do but DragonVale stays away from that and just has it in the background for you to do if you would like. Finally, I love DragonVale because it includes tons of features like leveling up your dragons for higher success of your dragons or having the rift included into the game to give it a fresh twist. But I often see people complain and I can understand, the rift starts off as confusing but as you progress through it it becomes easier to understand how it works and what to do with it. DragonVale has definitely progressed since I've first started playing it and I love it.
Best Game Ever, But I have an Idea
by AbigailA24601 on 2017/12/03 20:57
I love DragonVale!!! I’m at level 33 and I’ve had this game for ages. It’ll be a LONG time before I get rid of this game, but I do have an idea. As a rare, and I mean RARE, occasion, players should be given the chance to buy gems using dragon cash. Now, I understand that this is how Backflip Studios gets the money to pay for things, but hear me out. My first reason is that this is a child friendly game, and not many kids are able to just buy gem packs. I know I wouldn’t be able to! Secondly, only primary elemental dragons are worth dragon cash. This is annoying, because the cheapest dragons that aren’t worth dragon cash are 25 gems, which leads me to the next problem. Earning gems is really hard, and usually includes trying to breed dragons that will get you gems when you complete the goal of getting that dragon. Those dragons tend to be the more expensive ones that are hard to breed. Therefore, I think that on a rare occasion, players should be able to buy gems for dragon cash for a limited amount of time.
Pay to Play/Cash Grab
by Rocketblaster89 on 2018/11/15 16:14
I’ve been playing DragonVale for almost 2 years, if not longer. One of my friends got me into the game. He has been playing for almost 6 years and wanted someone else to enjoy it with him. Up until the recent events, we used to compete to see who could get the newest dragon the fastest, or who could get the most event currency. Now he is thinking about quitting. I have never spent actual money on this game. That was never the point. I played because it was free and fun, and relatively easy to breed dragons or obtain from events. These last few months, there has been a significant shift in the game dynamics to make us try and pay actual money to obtain all of the dragons. I refuse. This isn’t the DragonVale I started with, and if this keeps going this path, I will not keep playing. I do appreciate some of the changes though, and I don’t want the developers to think that I want to play the same ole DragonVale day after day. With that being said, things have to be made easier and more user friendly. The evolving is a great idea in theory. What’s not a great idea is allowing us to get 16 tendrils of white before we get our 1 tendril of red needed to evolve. Do you see the issue with that?
Long time player
by Lady Cherie on 2018/07/19 14:04
I’ve played this game since it came out. I think that explains how I feel about it: I enjoy the game. HOWEVER, I’m very disappointed right now over a few issues. First, the change on how to add friends. It’s terrible. I have a young family member who desperately wants us to be friends and he’s heartbroken because we can’t. I will not link my fb to this game, and he does not have one. So we can’t be friends. Please add a feature similar to the old one so we can add each other. Secondly, the influx of ads is frustrating. I didn’t really mind the little flying ad dude or the ads elsewhere but seriously? Now we can speed up the incubation time? Come one guys, you’re messing your game up! If you hired someone from EA please fire them. The gaming community is tired of the pay per every little upgrade stuff. Other than those frustrations, which will eventually lead to me to no longer play, I still enjoy this game. The dragon designs are fantastic and the design team deserves a raise. I’d love to see more stuff happening in the rift. The islands in the rift are getting excessively expensive so, maybe check that out too!

One of the best games I have ever played
by DragonKn1ght815 on 2020/01/20 18:21
This game is a game that me and my siblings grew up with and it has only gotten better and every time I play it I only feel joy so if you haven’t played or heard of this game get immediately.
Love this game, but...
by -Half & Half on 2020/01/20 16:46
I can’t stop thinking about it! All my dragons are so cool! However, when I go to bed and wake up in the morning, my eggs to not advance in time at all. They will advance an hour maybe, that’s it. It’s quite annoying and the worst glitch to deal with. This is why it’s has two stars. If this is to be fixed, it will be five stars.
I >333 this game!

It is my favorite game its so cute so many dragons to collect always something to do thats new
Great, but suggestion...
by yassgood on 2020/01/19 22:42
It would be really great if the decorations had the ability to be rotated and flipped
Enjoy this game
by rmmpurpledragon on 2020/01/19 18:07
I enjoy playing this game but it gets kind of boring after awhile. It would be better if we could interact with friends. It would be nice if we could trade our dragons for their dragons and items. Things cost slot of jewels which take forever to collect and islands cost more than you can collect especially when you have to buy other items.
Definitely recommend!!
by i like iy on 2020/01/19 01:47
I’ve had this game for around 2 years now, and I love it! It’s so much better than the other dragon games. I’m on like level 48 and I’m pretty satisfied with what I have in my park, I have the kairos, the Gaia, Bahamut, and the other one (I forgot what it’s called). But this is like my all time favorite game and I’m like on it 24/7. The only thing that bothers me is I can’t seem to figure out how to get the enchanted breeding cave thing, it’s like the cave with the big purple gem on the top, cause on the “great nogard’s” park when I visit, it has it and when I search it up in the market under buildings I can’t seem to find it, unless u like dis-continued it but that made me kinda upset but hasn’t affected my thoughts on the game overall 🙂. My suggestion for the game would be some improvements in the rift. Yes it’s a very cool now and different realm, the only thing that bugs me is that each time u breed, the price of ethurium goes up, same with clearing the cloud things. It just bugs me. There also should be more ways to gain etherium, cause I only have around 1,000, and like I’m too broke to do anything besides breed like once or twice and even when I do get ethurium from my dragons, it’s a very little amount, and doesn’t even make a dent in how much I have. But that’s what I think of the game, but I still love it 😊 thanks!

This game is the best game ever. Although, I think that some of the dragons or habitats shouldn’t cost diamonds. They should cost coins like everything else. Thanks User

I’ve had this game for forever. I first played this game when my mom had it on her iPhone 3. Me and my sister would fight to play this game. It always draws me back to it whenever I get a new phone. I love this game
keeps crashing
by ceruleanblooms288 on 2020/01/16 05:07
i really like the game and am happy with the way it’s set up and the variety of the dragons (i also appreciate how, relatively, easy it is to get gems). however, the app keeps crashing. i’m connected to good wifi and it’s already on low resolution mode. this is getting very annoying. edit: another thing, the game get really glitchy and slow if i’m in for longer than 2 minutes i feel. it is really laggy and freezes up sometimes too.
Its awesome i love the really cute dragons and the music thank you for making an awesome game.

Please read if you have not gotten this game yet.
by Video Gideo Games on 2020/01/12 07:16
This is a very good game, but I have some bad news. Backflip Studios, the developers, have closed down in October of 2019. Events will still happen, but there will be no new dragons or items. The events will basically all happen on rerun. Luckily, there are still hundreds and hundreds of dragons to collect. If you have patience, this game may be for you.

I always loved this game and the animations are just, wonderful. but this morning (Jan,10,2020) my game wouldn't stope crashing. I don't know if it's the game or my iPad being strange? But I'm kinda worried because what if I have to delete ALL of my progress?? I just got a very good dragon egg the other day and if I delete my game I won't (probably) never see it again. what should I do? delete the game? I already restarted my IPad, that didn't work. I tried opening it from the App Store. didn't work. I know this reply in a bit (okay maybe a year or two late) but I hope you can help me with this developers.. ಠ_ಠ

The game isn’t loading. Please fix
Is anyone else having an issue with it being extremely slow?
by Aggrivated wizard on 2020/01/05 17:13
I would love to give this game 5 stars. I really want to, but I just can’t! Recently I’ve been having an issue where the game takes up to 15 MINUTES for it to start. Sometimes it will be loading for 10 minutes and just crash. I love this game and play it every day, but the loading time is just unacceptable. I hope the people at backflip are working on this issue or will start working on it soon.

Messed up!
by abbrs5310 on 2020/01/04 05:28
I was on level 28+ had over 60 dragons (special dragons from the Halloween event and other rare dragons), 5 islands, the special breading cave, 2 galaxy islands, and the gemstone island. One day I go on the game and dang I’m back to the beginning, wanted me to put my birthday again! This is not the first time this has happened to me! I emailed customer service still no reply and I messaged over a month ago. I don’t want to re-download the game and I don’t recommend it anymore. I’ve read that other people are having the same experience. I used to love this game but this is getting old. I don’t want anyone else to go through this. I wish it didn’t have this problem.

by Isaac Simpson ok on 2020/01/04 04:30
Listen this is a great game it’s really fun and has a lot to do it’s just a great game that’s designed to take years to get everything. I have been driven away from the game because of the amount of time it takes to load I really do want to log on but when I want to get on I don’t feel like sitting there for a minute waiting to load and I couldn’t even imagine how long it would take if I had a lot of stuff. It’s kinda like rebooting your phone every time you want to get on.
Won’t open
by shyman2016 on 2020/01/04 04:11
It’s a really fun and great pass time game. Except when every time I hit a certain level the app then refuses to open. It force closes once I tap on it. I’ve never been able to reach level 40+ because of this.
Help
by Oh minhoo on 2020/01/04 01:58
Amazing game, but after a few days after the Christmas update my game won’t load anymore, it keeps saying that we have problems with the server and unable to load it. Help me, please.
Great but annoyed
by Gamer4382 on 2020/01/04 00:10
I got this game when it was relatively new, and I played it every day. I was at a considerably high level and had spent some money on this game, when I logged in one day and I was back a level 1. I’ve heard a lot of other people have this same problem and I hope the developers can fix it. If this issue didn’t occur than I would have definitely gave this game a 5 star rating.
It’s OK.

Hi I thought this was a good game but I deleted it for storage and installed it again later but I can’t go past the name your park part because it says it contains profanity on everything. I put Dragon Park and it said it contained profanity. Is there a way I can get around this glitch or no?

Best Dragon Game for Friends and Family
by ViperDragon13 on 2020/01/02 00:26
This is by far the best dragon game where you can breed dragons with your friends and family. Nothing like getting a surprise dragon from someone that breeds with your dragon. I have been playing this game for over a year and it is very true that with patience you can get all the dragons and more without buying anything. But for me, I don’t like to wait and will pay to get what I want. The prices are fair and they do a lot of sales. There is events through out the year. If you love Dragons like I do, this game is for you. My only recommendation to add to this game is to add the zodiac and Greek gods dragons to add additional variety.
Fun at first

This game is really fun, and I like the new activities it adds seasonally. However, a few critics. First off, there are almost too many dragons. It’s almost too easy to attain new dragons and defeats the strategizing aspect. Furthermore, unless you pay money, it’s incredibly hard to get large amounts of gems. This is annoying as a large majority of items cost over 1,000 gems.

This game is a very good game and fun to plays with friends but after a while it gets boring but I would recommend this game to anyone that likes dragons.
Fun but......

This game is so amazing I absolutely love it! Five stars indeed! I was so sad when I got a new phone and I couldn’t transfer my old DragonVale account and data to my new phone.
DragonVale is Paradise

This game is so awesome. Although I have the occasional problem with logging in, it redeems itself almost instantly. I think that if I could give the developers at Backflip Studios an idea of what they could do better/differently it would be that the app gives a notification about when to update for an event or just when to update. This may result in less confusion and more enjoyment. I would also like to send a HUUUGE thank you to Craig @Backflip for his help. When the aforementioned problems occurred and I reported them to the DragonVale Help Desk via email, Craig helped me sort it all out. I recommend this game to anyone who wants pets but cannot have them or for anyone who wants to raise creatures. THANK YOU BACKFLIP STUDIOS FOR CREATING DRAGONVALE
Beautiful but Buggy
by Chica Dude on 2019/12/29 17:28
Crashes all the time. 8 crashes in most recent session, primarily with adverts. Some adverts have questionable content including lurid images and items. Response from support always the same: “nothing wrong from our end; go to settings...etc”. Have highest speed internet possible on fiber optic line; no problems with ANY other app or movie streaming. So problem is likely not on my end says all of the apple folks. Animation is beautiful though. I keep the app hoping that hasbro will do a better job of supporting the tech. Why keep expanding the game if you don’t have the ability to properly keep it running? Verrrrrrry disappointed.
Just one teensy problem
by csantucci07 on 2019/12/29 15:34
Except if it’s a poser, my water dragon is level 20 BUT... it is not an elder even if it’s what it’s SUPPOSED TO BE!! Please fix.
Hate the fact we cannot keep the eggs
by rilyn3435 on 2019/12/29 12:26
I love this game a lot it’s been my favorite but it’s annoying the fact I cant keep the eggs from the bonus breeding cave like I want to be able to keep those eggs that I’ve worked hard for can you please change this
Alright it’s good, but some glitches/problems
by 123Wolfy321 on 2019/12/28 16:17
DragonVale is amazing but.. when I open the app and it loads, it always will almost be done loading and tell me a wizards spell went wonky/wrong. So I barely play anymore. Please fix this. I love this game so much Your friend, Maddy
Awesome app
by abi❤️horses on 2019/12/28 15:32
I love this game but I just downloaded it on my new iPad and it won’t work it won’t even open please fix this problem
I loved it, but now I’m just sad.
by shhhh, my name is mine. on 2019/12/27 03:23
Okay,so,I loved this game so much, and what the owners have done to it made me so sad.IT COLLECTS PERSONAL INFO.I am on level 30, and I have so much items, but I had to delete the game because when I logged in just now, it told me that while I am playing it will collect personal info, I felt actual sorrow, as all the work I have put into this game have to be deleted because Of it’s “privacy policy”. Okay, now the real review. This game was amazing,I loved it truly.but the things in the game are way overpriced, and when you first start playing the game, it is very hard to get diamonds.for example, a simple dragon (like fire and plant)costs you like, 75 diamonds!of course, in can understand why it is so much because you need to breed it, but right now that’s the only example I can think of.i really liked this game, and if the owner is reading this, please change the privacy policy, I really want to play the game I loved again.
ONE STAR?!
by The Guy Who Likes Dragons on 2019/12/27 01:09
You hardly do different splashes because you just spam this splash,”Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” Then I see Pepper dragons need more warmth... next splash,”Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” So then I get a Moonstruck dragon splash, then straight away the next splash is, you guessed it,”Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” I even PUNCH MY IPAD JUST BECAUSE I AM ANGRY AT THAT SPLASH!!! The game is good and all, but my ranking would’ve been 5 stars if you didn’t spam “Every day you can earn a new prize just for visiting your park!” I mean, new players need new info but they can’t get it because of that STUPID SPLASH! Please just don’t spam that splash too much. Okay? Okay.
Love it but
by iiiiiiidonttttcarreeee on 2019/12/26 19:28
Love this game so much I’ve played it before on my iPad but I recently got it on my phone it was working at first but after a day it said whenever I tried to log in it says that the wizards speed went wonky or something like that and I constantly trie to get in the app but it says that every single time.

To the Creator of DragonVale
by scar-i-boo on 2019/12/26 00:24
Dear DragonVale Creater, I love the app so much. I think it brought my sister and I closer. I say that there should be no more updates but I came up with some critiques that you could use. 1. A Faster way to get gems 2. When updating a building that uses gem just use a lot of coins For ex. Hatching Area it costs 25 gems for three slots, well you could do 6.000.000 or something like that. 3. Though I like the game there is a lot of waiting and sometimes I get bored because either something is upgrading and or build and or hatching. But the patients helps me learn to be more patient. I love the game and you should be proud. PS I love all the different dragons!!! :) Sincerely, 10 year old girl that loves your app

by GVGVG123 on 2019/12/25 08:06
The app doesn’t load. I’ve tried redownloading it multiple times. I’ve been told that backflip studios has been notified of the problem but nothing gets resolved.
Loading
by gblaine on 2019/12/25 03:26
The game never finishes loading so I am unable to play it anymore. I don’t know if this is a bug or if their servers are down forever but the game doesn’t leave the loading screen.
I love this game! There is only one issue...
by DragonComet on 2019/12/24 20:19
I love this game. I have played it for years. There is only one issue that really bothers me. The racing game is rigged. I have gotten perfects for the entire race and have gotten second many times. Sometimes, you could get first but it is rigged against you.
Love this game, Have played it for years
by MustacheMan342 on 2019/12/24 18:56
I have played this game for such a long time and it is such a detailed game with so many events.
Fun but lots of loading times
by K.R1L3Y19 on 2019/12/24 05:03
Really fun game but takes forever to load. I probably takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes for the game to load before I even get into my world. Really enjoy just wish it wasn’t so much loading time
RECOMMENDED
by Frozen Echos on 2019/12/24 03:41
This app is so cool! I mean, there are hundreds of hybrids that can be bred! You don’t really need to pay for dragons with diamonds, if you put the time and effort in! I’m on level 20 now and I have really cool dragons! If I could change just ONE thing on here it would be the wait time for breeding and incubating. It can take up to days depending on the rarity of the dragon and when my nursery and breeding cave are full I’m kinda stuck 😟But other than that I totally recommend this app! If your a dragon loving and you like a the thrill of accomplishing something rare, get this app!!! It’s really nice how it’s updated a lot! Keep doing what you guys are doing! It’s amazing! 😉 Also one thing... It would be awesome if you guys added types of constellation dragons. Like Ursa and Orion etc. If you guys already have that’s awesome and I can’t wait to see them when I’m on a higher level. If not, PLEASE ADD THEM 😁
WHY
by Firebird076098 on 2019/12/23 23:45
I loved this game so much. You have no idea how long I spent getting all of my dragons and no idea how much money I wasted on this game... All of a sudden, the game asks me to enter my date of birth and I have to restart from the beginning!!! This has happened twice!!
Great game, but...
by skinny_legend546 on 2019/12/23 21:28
I love this game. You guys at backflip have done a great job. But, recently, I logged in to check on my park, and it was gone! I had so much progress on the game, I was lvl 28, and life was good. But not anymore. This has happened to me years ago, and I decided to take a break because I was very mad about it😂. About a year and a half ago, I started again. I think you guys have a great game and if you could fix this it would be great so that people like me don’t have to worry about saving every single game to the cloud.🤠🤠
Love it!! But...
by starskyandhutch on 2019/12/23 15:06
I’ve been playing this game for a long time and I enjoy it a lot. It’s very unique and addicting, and I’m willing to wait however long it takes to get something, or hatch something! But... recently, when I’ve been trying to load it up, it just loads for a second and then brings me back to home screen. Again and again. This hasn’t happened with any of my other apps, and I’ve tried reloading my phone and deleting some stuff, but it hasn’t changed. So, I know it’s not my phone. What’s going on, and what can I do to fix it?
Fan for life...sad to see it go...
by MuggleMum on 2019/12/23 03:26
I've been a fan of this game since I started playing years ago. Love the way it has evolved over time, and love that the developers are always willing to listen to issues and suggestions. There is never a dull moment in the game! I can spend money when and how I want, without being overwhelmed by ads. I don’t mind spending some to help keep the game going. I’m extremely sad to hear that Backflip has been shut down and would love to see DragonVale live on with the original developers.
Love the game

Good Game Need Some Features
by AerinRamen on 2019/12/20 16:57
I really love DragonVale. I’ve been playing since it first came out and enjoy to this day. While I did take a break for a bit I still love seeing my dragons and doing quests. However I wish this game would add a few more features. The first one would be a mass editor mode. Similar to Clash of Clans it inventories your island or islands depending on which one you want to edit. This way a player doesn’t have to individually tap each habitat, and walkway, and decoration to get the it right looking. With a mass editor, the person can still say buy walk ways and decorations. Even sell the walkways they don’t want to buy a new version. There would be a lot of potential in this feature for those who want to redecorate their islands but don’t want to spend so much time nitpicking pathways they can barely see behind the habitats when they “edit the pathways”. The DV community would greatly appreciate a mass editor that allows for inventorying all island(s) items so they can plan and map out how they want the island to look like. A second feature I think everyone would get behind is rotational decorations and/or habitats. Now I realize this is primarily a 2D flat game for the most part. You only have one way to view items, dragons and habitats on. However, allowing for rotation would give the game a whole new depth that would attract new players. This in-game would surely be appreciated by the community because of how the game is mostly dependent on the visuals. Instead of having to buy two of the same benches at different angles, let them have the option to rotate it. Habitats are a bit harder but you don’t have to have full 90 degree turns for that. Flipping it left right for a different view would probably be enough for the first update with this feature. If the game did implement rotational items in-game, many people would enjoy redecorating their island just that much more. This one feature is specifically towards the Rift area in DragonVale. I think it would be really cool to have items like the Fountain of Youth or a Hibernation Tower in that area. Because think about how much time it would take to send the rift dragon through (2 hours) to the normal area plus the fountain of youth (depending on the dragon) and then shipping it back again (another 2 hours). While this game is time based, lot of players would rather not have to wait on pending for their dragons to be shipped over to the main area. I really do enjoy DragonVale as it is right now. The events are very fun to play with, daily checks are entertaining overall. 5/5 stars for me on this game. The features I recommended were just a few thing I personally wanted / the community has asked for. Thank you for taking your time to see this review and enjoy the rest of your day!
Too Bad
by lainyw on 2019/12/20 14:19
I have been playing for 2 yrs and did enjoy the game. However I will have to delete the game because I will not consent to tracking of data while I play a game. It is one thing to have pop up ads which I tolerate but not anything else.

Bug fix !!
by cedesgrace on 2019/12/20 04:33
I’m so close to level 55 and in desperate need of another island. It’s wanting me to agree to different terms so I’m really hoping it doesn’t start my game over after log in. But then there’s the biggest problem, it won’t even let me log in... it keeps saying a wizard has come and the game needs to reload over and over again. Only game I can play and not get bored of. Been playing forever it feels like, please fix this problem!

Love this game!
by Here: A rating on 2019/12/19 20:49
I absolutely love this game. The only way this game could possibly be any better was if a trade option were added. For example, you have a dragon your friend really wants, and they have one that you really want. Well what could you do? If a trade option was added, you could trade with all your friends and get those dragons you always desired to own! With trade, the game would be perfect in my opinion.
Love the game, but I think there’s a glitch.
by extremesheep598 on 2019/12/19 02:53
I love this game and play it everyday, but I tried opening the app, like normal, and it crashes on the loading screen. Does anyone else experience this or is it just my phone? Please someone help I can’t play the game now.
Backflip Studios has been closed, so goes Dragonvale
by Justme183 on 2019/12/18 21:09
For those of you just getting this app, those of you complaining about purchases, those of you complaining that it hasn’t been updated.. Hasbro has decided to close Backflip Studios- only a handful of people are there, through the end of 2019.

Dragonvale being shut down
by AurizenDarkstar on 2019/12/17 12:59
From everything I’ve read, the reason why no holiday events have been showing up is that Hasbro has shut down Dragonvale. So I guess it’s only a matter of time before all of our parks disappear into the ether. Sad really, as the game was a fun time waster.
DragonVale
by LostSiren on 2019/12/16 21:21
Since getting the iPhone 11 Pro Max DragonVale has not been updating as it should. Right now is the Ohm of Noms and I’m still stuck with the Candy Bash. Seriously I’ve been playing since the game came out and it’s about to be deleted. Don’t even say log in with Facebook because they’re history as well as far as I’m concerned. Every other app I have stays updated perfectly. This one doesn’t and it’s not the first time either. So either get me updated or contact me. Still it’s mid December and I’m looking at the Halloween game when it boots up. I also do not have Facebook anymore so what happens if I delete the game? Will it come back? I’m so sick of this within the gaming community that I’m about to delete it and I’ve played almost since the game was released. Get your greedy acts together and fix this mess!
Obsessed!!

I had bought the 412 gems during the 50% bonus deal but it never gave me the plus 50%. Until this is changed I will change me rating to 5 stars.
I can’t believe this game was cancelled

Very upset that you have not updated for Christmas
by Flyaway2ak on 2019/12/14 16:54
Seriously you have had a Winter event every year My selected house is ice. And I look forward to the winter ones. The Halloween stuff was awful I did not like the cover for the front of the app nor the front cover of the dark dragon. Maybe liked it beforehand but now that it is Christmas I am seriously over it. Winter and Christmas and New Year are the best events. Maybe it’s the winter break and I have time to play it really play it. I am venting and of course you probably don’t care.
Love this game!!💜
by _SweetMuffin_ on 2019/12/14 12:56
I’ve been playing for almost 3 years and it is a very fun game! I love the new dragons and my favorite is the sailback dragon! I had a DragonVale account before but something happened to it, but I started over and now I’m level 51!! I would rate this game 6 stars, Thank you so much for making it! 😉

This game really rocks really
Lovely :)
by Granola Queen on 2019/12/13 22:27
I adore this app. I have played it for years, although I switched to DV World until it recently closed down (not sure if this shut-down is temporary). It is rewarding, well-made, and a joy for all ages, and I appreciate the love and care that was clearly lavished upon this wonderfully unique game. It is NOT a pay-to-win, and the sheer variety of dragons is stunning-they each have a unique story and style, and limited-time dragons and events make it even more exciting. I genuinely have no complaints about this app whatsoever, and look forward to enjoying this game for years to come-I encourage anyone considering downloading to do so, and have your friends join in too!
Used to love this game
by Theywontfixit on 2019/12/13 10:13
After a year of dismal events and oppressive difficulty earning gems, new dragons, event goodies, the game is finally more like it used to be- a challenge but not a soul crushing challenge.
Christmas?

LOVE THIS GAME❤️❤️❤️but...
by Taz Brad on 2017/09/25 03:21
First of all, I have had this game literally all my life (JK, I got it when it first came out). From my knowledge it’s the first dragon breeding game, so that’s big. Also the gameplay and animation style is unique. Another thing is that new dragons come out like every week or a big update like (for example) the rift update comes out like every 2 months, so there’s always something new to enjoy. Now let’s talk about the ‘but...’; it starts with the rift update. I love the fact that breeding is almost instant and the rift alignment stuff, but, there’s this this call Miasmic Ether and you have to clear it to unlock more of the rift. Sounds fair. BUT, it’s not. Let me explain, each time you clear the Miasmic Ether, you need more etherium (currency in the rift) to clear the rest. For example if I clear one cloud for 200 etherium, the next cloud I clear will cost me 225 etherium, and this value NEVER goes down! So by the time you clear ALL the Miasmic Ether, you will end up paying (for example not actually) 1,235,675 etherium. So basically it’s a hopeless grab for money💸. I like the feature that you have to pay more etherium to clear more Miasmic Ether but there should be a way for the value to go down, like,”Everyday the Miasmic Ether cost resets!” Or something. Also I just wanna say, Backflip Studios, if you’re reading this then please fix this problem...I’m done here. P.S. Backflip I have a ton of ideas for dragons so contact me...notice me senpai.
What a bummer!!!
by IPad oldster on 2018/01/25 11:52
I can't even begin to say how bummed I am! I've been playing for over a year, reached a 40+ level, had hundreds of dragons, multiple islands, and WHAM! suddenly I log in and I'm back to level 1!! It's like I never logged in before. I just updated to the new iOS as I usually do but then this. How do I get my status back??? I have no desire to start all over again so this needs to be fixed. From the last reviews I read, it seems others are experiencing the same or worse scenarios. Please get this back where it should be. I loved this game and enjoyed comparing with my grandson who was thrilled his Grandma liked something he liked. I changed my rating to a 5 because you were able to reload my game back where it belonged and my grandson and I have been enjoying comparing our parks for a couple more years now. But suddenly I seem to be a persona non grata again. I updated the Jolly Jamborie and played just fine for about a week then suddenly every time I log in I get kicked out after a few seconds. This has been going on for about 7 weeks now and I'm to the point of total disgust. For the last week I can't even get the game to download to my iPad. It goes to about half then stops. What is really upsetting is I haven't even been able to get to the options page to send a request for help. So here I am having to do it in the App Store in a review! What is going on??
Definitely recommend!!
by i like iy on 2020/01/19 01:47
I’ve had this game for around 2 years now, and I love it! It’s so much better than the other dragon games. I’m on like level 48 and I’m pretty satisfied with what I have in my park, I have the kairos, the Gaia, Bahamut, and the other one (I forgot what it’s called). But this is like my all time favorite game and I’m like on it 24/7. The only thing that bothers me is I can’t seem to figure out how to get the enchanted breeding cave thing, it’s like the cave with the big purple gem on the top, cause on the “great nogard’s” park when I visit, it has it and when I search it up in the market under buildings I can’t seem to find it, unless u like dis-continued it but that made me kinda upset but hasn’t affected my thoughts on the game overall 🙂. My suggestion for the game would be some improvements in the rift. Yes it’s a very cool now and different realm, the only thing that bugs me is that each time u breed, the price of ethurium goes up, same with clearing the cloud things. It just bugs me. There also should be more ways to gain etherium, cause I only have around 1,000, and like I’m too broke to do anything besides breed like once or twice and even when I do get ethurium from my dragons, it’s a very little amount, and doesn’t even make a dent in how much I have. But that’s what I think of the game, but I still love it 😊 thanks!
Fantastic Game 🤩🤩🤩 WOW!!!
by Charlie7733 on 2018/02/07 03:16
Okay this is a fantastic game with amazing developer support. I got this game back in 2011 when it was brand new on the App Store. I have been playing it ever since then and continues to be my most favorite and most played app. Breeding for and hatching new dragons is always innovative and exciting. Additionally, do not listen to the comments complaining about the Rift prices. While it seems daunting at first, you can slowly build up a good rift that earns you a lot of the etherium quite fast. It is just a different world inside of DragonVale that earns at a rate much slower than standard gold coins. If you spend time hatching dragons in the rift and buying as many habitats as you can, you will start to earn etherium well. Additionally, I made it as far as I have and am currently Level 105 without spending any money until this year. I spent money only for personal enjoyment as they offered surprise dragon eggs to get good dragons you do not currently own. This is a free to play game done right which I have gotten more than my fair share of value from. I really enjoy all the events and they are back to back so you always have something new to work for. Really could not ask for more fun out of a single app in the App Store. Just wow!
Going downhill
by AOG2 on 2018/11/14 19:32
I’ve been playing the game for nearly 5 years, usually logging in 2-3 times daily. It was entertaining and during events I’d often pay $20-30 to buy extras and reward the developers for their work. It’s been nearly two years since I’ve been willing to pay real money toward this game. The changes Hasbro has made, particularly in the last 6 months or so, has begun driving tenured, dedicated players away. Events are nearly back-to-back, there are more limited time items at higher in-game costs, which they are using to try to increase out-of-pocket real money spent by players, and what players need to buy and do in order to “evolve” new dragons have become more complicated. The worst, in my opinion, is the developers and Hasbro do not provide responses to questions by players posted publicly, do not appear to take player feedback into consideration, and do not have a customer service presence on the game’s Facebook page. All of this has led to frustration and feeling the company and developers have lost sight of their customers. A year ago, I would have rated this game 5 stars. Now I had to decide between giving it 2 or 3 stars. If you’re a new player, there will be a lot of content you can’t get to or can’t buy without spending real money. The events will be frustrating for you too. Sorry, Backflip. My time with your game is nearing its end, and my checkbook will no longer open for you.
Resetting and Tutorial
by Iplayedthisgameomg on 2019/09/08 13:22
I would like to be able to reset my uhhh park? (Sorry I haven’t played in a bit) I love these types of games, mostly for the breeding part. But they get kinda boring after awhile. But after a bit I’d love to see all the dragons again! So I re-download the game, and for me I want a fresh start. But when I first get back into the game, all my old stuff is there. I know some people like that, but not me. So, I would like the ability to reset my game. Like the reset button could always be in your settings, or when you first re-download the game a pop up says, “do you want a fresh start?” And if you press yes, “Are you sure?” And if you have rare dragons “ARE YOU SURE??? You have rare dragons that will be deleted forever!” And if you still persist, the game will reset. and getting on to the next topic in my title, (it’s much shorter) after you persisted it would ask, “Do you want the tutorial?” Then if you said yes, you would have a normal tutorial. If you said no, then you would start of with an the state of your park(?) just like how it is after you finish the tutorial. Dragons and all. Then if the player is struggling, (with or without the tutorial) give them a nudge in the right direction. I really like this game and others like it, so this really is my only logical place to complain about the game. Thanks for reading!
Good, I guess
by Is this the best u can do? on 2019/02/16 17:49
This is a really good game, and I play it almost every day, but I’m on level 72 and I feel like there’s nowhere left to go. I mean, I have all three legendary dragons, and I’ve unlocked everything. Now when I level up, the only thing that changes is I can build one more habitat. But that’s literally it. Did you guys program this thinking that no one would make it that far, and that’s why there’s nothing new? I mean, I can still participate in the holiday things, like the rift event and the Valentine’s Day event, but there’s no challenge to the game anymore. I really wish you’d make another legendary dragon, that’d be pretty fun. Also, I’m pretty sure the legendary vault dragon has a glitch. If I collect 1,000 abundant essence I can collect all the money, gems, food, and rift currency in my park. However if I collect 10,000 abundant essence and I go onto the legendary vault dragon’s profile, I can choose to “power him up”. I tried this, and it did NOTHING. When I did this I thought it would fill all my habitats to the max and collect the money but it didn’t. In fact, it didn’t even collect the money I DID have. It literally did NOTHING. I did this a second time, just to make sure I was correct in assuming it was malfunctioning and I got the same results as the first time. Please fix this, or at least add a warning to the game saying that powering the vault dragon up won’t do anything. Thanks, I guess.
Love this game but disappointed!!
by QUEENSIA24 on 2018/05/08 14:11
I recently found this game and started to play it for a couple months religiously!!!! I had a variety of dragons and I was even at a pretty high level! I’ve grown to love the game I even spent money on this game because of how addictive it is! Haha but just about a week ago I LOST EVERYTHING! My app would not open so I deleted it and re-downloaded it and logged back in to find that everything was gone. I was livid. Even though I was so upset I hung in and restarted due to how much I just love this game and trust me I don’t have much games on my phone so it was surprising to me how much I still wanted to try and start over and continue. So now I’m back to square one and trying to hope that this doesn’t happen again I do truly enjoy the game so it really was a bummer. Every time I want to open the app I have to re-download it because it just won’t let me open it. It’s starting to get frustrating and I’m starting to get irritated because I want to play the game and then I have to re-download it every time for it to work!? Are you serious I don’t have the time for that and if this continues I will no longer play this game. I’ve been putting up with this for a while but it’s really starting to be annoying and honestly sad that y’all haven’t done anything about it I’ve seen lots of comments about this and nothing has been done. Hopefully this gets fixed and I can continue to play the game that I love.🐉💗
Favorite game until the new Rift
by LadyFuryKT on 2017/10/06 19:32
I've played this game every day for nearly a year now. It's been my favorite mobile game by far. I loved the Rift when it first came out. It was unique and the new dragons were really cool. However, the new Rift is confusing at best, and frustrating at worst. The currency is so hard to get, and you have to spend more than you're getting in order to progress. At least in older updates, you may have needed to spend a little money here and there to get everything you wanted out of it. Now it's like you can't get ANYTHING without having to spend actual money on it. I understand the developers have to make money, but this feels like they're trying to take advantage of their customers' loyalty by making progress impossible without spending money. And what's even more annoying is the fact that I can't even OPEN the game anymore. When the new Rift started, I basically opened the game to get my daily reward, collect my food and money, and then quit. Now the last couple days I can't even do that. So I'm a little annoyed that I had over 200 consecutive days playing this game, and now I'm back to 0 because of these bugs. Before this, I would've given this game 5 stars. If the developers can get things back on track, and make updates and events that aren't filled with bugs and confusing gameplay, I would give it 5 stars again.
Dragon story is not better?
by 💕🐞💐❤️🎉 on 2019/11/03 16:08
I have played this game and dragon story and all dragon story ever did was ask for my money. There were many things you could only get in the game if you spent a ton of money on gold. There were so many pop ups and I really didn’t want to spend my money on a game I didn’t really even enjoy. DragonVale is better in so many ways. You don’t actually need to spend money to progress, and it is a lot easier to get gems, the equivalent to dragon story gold. It is also extremely hard to progress in dragon story, so much so it gets frustrating. Not sure how people ever though dragon story was better? Many young kids also play dragon story, and I bet many of them have spend hundreds of their parents money on gold so they can progress. Dragon story is very obviously geared towards younger kids. The graphics are colorful and childish, and elements have colors like “green” and “red” instead of the fire or plant elements. The dragonvale lore is also much more compelling than that if dragon story. Dragon story feels like every other dragon game, begging for your money constantly just to progress, but dragon vale feels like someone actually put work into, and it wasn’t just a quick cash grab.
Copy of dragon story?
by cactus.l.explorer on 2019/08/14 13:54
Ok, to start off I’m just going to say this is a pretty good game. I had tried it before, and had some trouble with the intro, but a week or so ago I made a new island and started over. I like the jam-packed events and the variety of dragons. The cooperative breeding cave is also a pretty unique idea. Now let’s think of other dragon games. I have been playing dragon story for about 6 years now. I am almost at level 100, and have unlocked pretty much everything you can get. I have quite a few dragons, and I can see the similarity between some of the dragons in DS and DragonVale. In a lot of dragon games, actually. I mean, the colosseum looks very similar to the DS battle arena, and the whole rift thing seems to me, in a way, like the magic portal. I can see similarities to other games too. Another storm 8 game, pet shop story, has the visitors who just walk around too. They look very similar to there visitors, and about the same age variety too(older people, kids, teenagers). It’s even similar to the fri ckin My Little Pony app, where if you hold an object for 3 seconds, you go into edit mode. So honestly this game is pretty nice, good concept, well made, but it seems to me like there’s too much similarity. Otherwise I would recommend this game, but honestly DS is way, WAY better. So I would recommend doing your research before you get this game.
Almost Perfect
by Millsy s.b park on 2019/02/14 00:37
I have been playing this game since elementary school. I grew up playing it. I had the light and dark rift dragons when they were both light/dark. I got ovalith in the original event it was offered. I played it when the apocalypse dragon was introduced for the 2012 mayan thing. This game is addictive and has staying power. The dragons mostly look cool and the events are mostly fun. Mostly. They kinda got worse but the 2019 gardenia event looks fantastic. But there’s a few flaws I would like to address 1. Evolved dragons. No one likes them, they are a pain to get, and they stress everyone out. PLEASE quit using these. It just seems like a cash grab. The whole point is to breed dragons, not to evolve them. At least make it possible to get them in co-op if you don’t already have one. I need the corrupticorn! 2. Ghostly Dragons. This is just lazy. You literally reskinned old dragons and they are hard to breed as it’s impossible to tell if it’s gonna be ghostly or not. It also leaves the expectation that you will eventually have ghostly dragons for all the elemental and special ones, which I doubt you’ll do. 3. Races. They suddenly got really hard and even with all perfect you get second place. I get making it a little harder, but it shouldn’t be impossible if you have the right elements.
Sadly Deleting After Eight Years
by gyhhbgh on 2019/05/12 13:00
I got this game close to when it came out. My girlfriend's family showed me it so I could play with the kids. They were around level 30 when I first started with the mom at 50. Eventually they stopped playing and I kept up every day and eventually made it to level 125, all the islands, all the major decorations, but never all the dragons. I have always been missing anywhere from 3-5 and I've always gotten close. Recently since BackFlip has created more barriers to getting event dragons that can only be solved by paying money I am deciding to quit DragonVale. I really wanted to keep up but I feel like that 3-5 is becoming 10-14 and increasing after every event. The grind to keep up is becoming difficult and unrewarding. After this 2019 Easter event I was on the game five times a day collecting eggs and I still wasn't even close to getting all the event dragons. I am five dragons behind and I feel like I can never catch up. And this is after playing the game so long that finally I feel helpless. The Pokémon Go game gave me a similar feeling where they kept adding barriers to the game and alienated fans until the game died. I hope that doesn't happen for the other fans of this game, but unfortunately for me I will be retiring my park. Thank you BackFlip for the eight years and good luck improving your game.
DragonVale Review
by Nina-Corn on 2019/05/12 22:49
This app is amazing, no lie. It is a really fun app where you can buy, breed, and take care of your dragons. DragonVale is a free app, except for optional purchases. And the optional purchases don’t even cost that much. One thing that I do appreciate is that the game providers help you a lot! At the beginning when you first download the game, they basically tell what the game is about, how it works, etc. Then once you finish reading the prologue, they show you the ropes to it. They teach you where to buy certain items, how to get money and gems, and even really easy things like how to breed just In case you get confused. Then there are things like goals, which once you finish them, you can get prizes, like coins, gems, and level boosts. It is a really fun game and I highly recommend that you get it, ever since I had downloaded the app, I have had no concerns, or problems, or anything similar. Hopefully you have as much fun with the game as I have, and again I am here to remind you that it is the most amazing game ever. This is the best review I have given, since this app is such high quality, and I can guarantee that you will definitely enjoy DragonVale. That is all, goodbye!
Best Dragon Game Ever!
by Lusnowdrop on 2019/10/05 18:12
I’ve been playing this game for so long, longer than I can remember. I love this game because you can accomplish almost ANYTHING without paying a dime. I only spent money to reward the developers for keeping the game alive. The newest Paradise event has been amazing! I’ve gotten so many limited new epic dragons without paying any money. This game truly rewards players for their hard work and the thing I love most about it is the simplicity. Although events do go back to back, there’s always something new to get in this game. I’ve been playing Dragon Story and Dragon City too and I love both of them but not nearly as much as this dragon collecting game. The simplicity of this game is shown by the lack of complicated battles, lack of so many structures that you have to constantly check and I love it. I want to play everyday to farm etherium to collect more gemstone dragons via the eggs. Yes, the rift is very hard but once you get the hang of it and breed your first epic dragon and find a sustainable food growing method you can make it so you gather over 2,500 etherium in just about 6-5 hours. I love this game so much, and the new dragons are so awesome! Keep up the great work.
Great, but glitches outta be fixed
by Strange, but cool ;) on 2018/05/02 16:26
I'm going to preface this by saying that I've been playing this game for over fives years now. Recently, I've been finding it difficult to keep up with the amount of dragons that exist. I play during the events, but dozens of dragons keep getting added at a place that I can keep up with. I like that because it keeps the game interesting and allows long term players like me to not get bored by having every dragon and having no room for improvement. That's fine, but it's been growing exponentially which is absolutely ridiculous and impossible to keep up with. Another thing: the rift. I think it's pretty great that there's a new type of dragon and an entirely new "world" for them. However, the amount of food required to level up these dragons is difficult for an experienced player to keep up with, let alone a newbie. I pity the people who just started playing and unlock the rift at level 28 or whatever and are overwhelmed by the new content. That aside, I haven't been able to even open the game for a couple days now. Every time I try, the logo appears, and then I get immediately kicked out of the app. If you guys could address this problem, that would be fantastic.
Can not get into the game.
by OrignalPlayer on 2019/10/18 01:01
I have been playing this game since it came out. They require you to get all the islands, themes, 3 different kinds of dragons (regular, twin and rift version), pedestals, decorations, literally EVERYTHING they come out with. When you do so the game becomes so large that you can no longer open the game to play. The events come out way too often making it impossible to get the new dragons and whatever crazy idea they come up with as far as enhancements or versions. The amount of event currency you can earn and what you need to get the new dragons is no where near each other. They recommend once you do get everything they ask for that you turn everything off or hide it because the game is too large to be played on your cell phone. They came out with a low resolution mode and it does nothing to help this issue. Unless you’re looking to spend lots of $$$ and waste your time trying to breathe fire, this game is not for you. Their customer service is such a joke. Report an issue getting into the game and they ask for your ID number. If you can not get into your park, you can not provide them the ID number. A lot of people have quit playing this game of their own free will and there are thousands more who are completely locked out of our games that want to try to play and can’t. Don’t be another victim. Find a different game through a different company.
I love this game but it is a SCAM.
by jordanaliwhite on 2019/03/19 18:18
I’ve been binge playing this Game for months it was my favorite game. When I started to really get into it I noticed how when I would play the Colosseum, it would not reward me my gems. I genuinely thought I could get over that, but the more I think about it the more angry I get. This game is asking you to pay your hard earned money on gems, and when you actually earn them in the game they aren’t received. What really set me over the edge though, Is the Valentine’s Day event. There was a certain level of prizes I was aiming for which were the Daisy prizes. The game and information explains that by earning daily prizes (visiting your park every day and earning a prize for it), you will unlock more levels of prizes for your park. I had collected all of the prices necessary to unlock the daisy prizes. But they were still locked, and the information said that I had to unlock two more prizes for that level. So I continued for two more days just to see if it would count, it didn’t. So I decided to just spend my 11,000 roses on first level prizes. When I did that though, I got a notification claiming that I had in fact unlocked the daisy prizes. Imagine that frustration. I don’t have the money to be spending on gems for a phone game. So I earn them by playing The game and watching stupid inconvenient ads. So when I watch the ads and win gold medals, I expect to earn my gems.
One of my favorite games of all time
by PigDoodles on 2019/09/16 13:12
An absolutely incredible game, especially for a mobile game. There are many brave things most mobile developers wouldn’t do out if fear of costs to their business, but Backflip develops this game purely out of heart and soul. Kairos, the legendary dragon of time, allows you to fast-forward time completely free, something you’d normally have to at least pay an in-game currency for. You can use a currency to skip the cooldown on the ability, but you don’t need it. And Gaia, the legendary nest dragon, can hatch any egg instantly, and speeds up the incubation of dragon eggs. Nearly every dragon has an amazing design - and there are over 500! It’s not overly difficult or pay-to-win - they even have dragons that produce the magical gemstones that most games would make practically exclusive to ads and in-app purchases. Every limited-time dragon returns at least twice per year with the Bring ‘Em Back event (and this year there are three!) and all of them can be obtained without buying them. There’s an in-game breeding hint menu that tells you what combos you will need for certain dragons. All in all, this game is full of charm and super well made.
HOW TO GET ETHERIUM!!!
by Emily2345 on 2017/10/12 09:48
To everyone complaining about how hard it is to get Etherium and how expensive everything is in the Rift: You’re doing it wrong!! Stop everything you’re doing: stop clearing Ether and stop breeding dragons above 200 Etherium in cost! Buy habitats instead, the more habitats you have the more Etherium you get, which allows for even more habitats! Then upgrade the habitats. It’s exponential! I have 9 Regal habitats (highest ones with a max of 200 Etherium each) and 7 Refined (second highest with 135 Etherium each), which fill up every about 2 hours, and I haven’t paid a single dime in real money. By now I discovered the buildings and have been easily breeding dragons too, worth several thousand Etherium a day, but I didn’t start with that, I started with the habitats. Now about the exorbitant costs to feed the Rift dragons... that’s a whole different story. There’s no exponential growth to be had in this case. And it’s annoying that they didn’t use to cost that much before the upgrade. Oh well. But other than this, I love the game. It’s not easy, but it’s still possible to play without paying money, if you focus on growth first.
I loved this game 😞
by Lmastre on 2019/08/23 05:13
I've been playing DragonVale for just over 4 years. I used to really enjoy playing, raising dragons, trying to get all the different breeds, decorating my park, etc. I always made sure I checked in every day, to at least collect the cash. They would, for special occasions, have an 'Event' where you could earn 'magic essence', flowers, coins, or some other form of currency. It used to be that if, you worked really hard at it and maxed out how much of this special currency you could earn (they put a limit on how much you can make), you could just barely get all or most of the special, limited time dragons, and decorations. The developers are now greedy jerks, who have made it impossible to come even close to earning enough for HALF of the limited time items! This most recent event, I figured up that I would've had to spend over $100 to get enough 'magic essence' to get the items, let alone the dragons. This would've been on top of what I earned every day! I have gotten so sick of not even coming close, that I gave up on trying to get them all, and actually FORGOT to check in on some days. I hadn't forgotten since I started the game, ESPECIALLY during an event. I've been thinking about deleting it, I just hate all the time I've wasted on this, just to have it turn sour. I thought I'd try to save someone all the heartache that comes with this game.
Disappointed long term player:(
by Poison karma on 2018/12/03 18:57
I love the dragons and the game but! yes there is a but! I have been playing this game since the beginning & I spent over $200 on this game and now the events are impossible to get done in time. It was a Christmas event, Christmas is supposed to be a gift, a thanks for playing your game something not so stressful. I sent a message to the developers asking for help and never received anything back. I have only sent a message one other time and the person was really rude to me. I don't feel for the money spent I get the help and courtesy I deserved in return:( I hope the developers will rectify this. Update on my last review: still disappointed in the game only now it got worse “yes” worse. I can’t believe it’s Christmas again and the events got everyone I know to quit playing. What a sad thing. I just can’t put anymore money into a game that the developers don’t read their reviews and address them:( I always use to get the new dragons and then spend money on extra decorations I wanted and felt happy about spending money. If I spend money to get the new dragons that the developers have made it impossible to get without spending money, I will only be making it worse. If you want people to spend money “make the game fun again”
loved it, but....
by dragonvaleplayer36 on 2019/06/26 17:34
dragonvale is literally my childhood that i never grew out of but it’s changed. if you want to place more habitats and your under the limit you either pay a buttload of gems for ONE habitat. ONE! that’s all you get! and when you level up you get ONE more habitats! to be more specific, you only get ONE more habitat if you level up. it’s frustrating. i had to update my dragonarium(i’m pretty sure that’s what it is called) which stores extra dragons. bc they want my money to either pay for ONE extra habitat or to update my dragonarium is absolutely ridiculous. redeem yourselves and make the game great again. let us have more habitats and have it not all about the $$$$$$!!!! also, my dragonvale takes AGES to get past the loading screen you get when you first click on the app. All of this has been causing me to progressively not play the game as much. you don’t get the bang for your buck and i’m very disappointed. if these problems were fixed, this game would without a doubt be 5 stars, but until then.... 2 is enough. it seems that dragonvale is trying to take advantage of its dragonvale lovers, it’s like you can’t really progress in the game if it doesn’t include money. what a shame. such a great game taking advantage. i know the developers need money but come ON people. my favorite game ruined.😭
THIS APP IS A GREEDY MONEY GRAB DO NOT GET IT
by WildDragonGirl1 on 2018/08/18 17:54
Hey it's been awhile but I want to point out that this app is a greedy grab for money. You have to buy pretty much everything. And it's stupid. If you get an egg, it takes up to 24 hours to hatch. If you breed dragons, they take up to 24 hours to finish doing their thing. If you pay to remove a big stone or tree, it takes up to 24 hours. And if you want any of these things to speed up you have to pay real money for it. It's impossible to earn gems, it's really hard to get enough treats to feed ALL your dragons unless you wait 24 hours for the treats, and if you have your dragon go into the colosseum to take part in an event, you don't get to see it or anything. You have to wait 24 hours, and you don't even see the competition taking place. It's such a hopeless money grab. I have been tricked into almost buying something many times. Thankfully I managed to back out of it quickly. I've heard people say that this app randomly charges your account $15. A scam. It's misusing your credit card information. That's scary. So please be careful and do not buy this. PREVIOUS REVIEW Okay, I loved this game. But you can't tell the in-app purchases from the items that are purchased with fake coins! I almost bought things with real money on several occasions because it was impossible to tell the difference. Such a let down, honestly.
GET THIS GAME!!!
by Madelyn Dogwater on 2017/11/19 02:07
This is literally my favorite game right now!! The dragons are so cute and i love them!! ❤️❤️ Anyways you get to have as many islands as your heart can cram in, and you can have as many dragons as you want!! If that’s not enough, there is fun seasonal events that bring you seasonal dragons!! I’m posting this around thanksgiving and right now the thanksgiving Om of Noms event is going on, such cute dragons, haven’t got one yet because i don’t have enough spices (little cookie shaped things that help you earn prizes) to get the Harvest Dragon but i was talking and being weird just talking to the dragons on my phone and i promised the dragon i would get him as soon as i could. So yea, luv this game 5 stars from me!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️😂😂😂😅😅😅 Whew!! That was a lot to let out!😅😅 Btw if your still reading, the only bad thing i have found out of the time i have been playing is that sometimes it’s hard not to spend REAL money to make progress, i know from personal experience. Me: “I NEED TO BUY THESE GEMS!! THE BREEDING/HATCHING/ANYTHING IS TAKING FOREVER!! GOTTA SPEED IT UP WITH GEMMZZZZ!!” Yea i get carried away, i think i have spent $30 on this game, I’m very mindless at times....😬😬
Great game!
by SuperAirDog on 2018/04/11 22:03
Overall this game is great! Something that’s better about this game than other breeding games is that it doesn’t pressure you to spend money to get progress. Whenever I played other breeding games, it would get to a certain point where things that are required to make process cost way to much for how much currency you get. This game doesn’t do that and allows players to make progress. It also gives players a large amount of chances to get the special currency (in this game it’s “gems”) which can be used for upgrades and such, which are not necessarily needed to make process. One chance it gives to make an extra gem is whenever you get an achievement (for example, breeding a specific type of dragon for the first time), you can share it on Facebook (used to be both Facebook and Twitter) which gives you extra gem. However, I don’t know if this is happening to anyone else, but whenever I try to post something on Facebook, it will say “posted” but the game will proceed to crash and not give me a gem. I’ve been sorta annoyed by this, but other than that I love this game.
This game is amazing!
by MackZ3 on 2019/07/07 07:08
Dragonvale has got to be one of-if not the- best dragon based games I’ve ever played. I never get bored with the plethora of dragons I can unlock and breed... especially when I have the corresponding breeding guide to get the dragons I need or want. With the rift update back then, I found it fair. Let me explain: With the ether you have to clear, the amount goes up by 25’s (I think). It’s not that big of a deal if you do a lot of the dragon quests and races and save up a lot like I do. Patience is also key for getting enough of... anything really. You don’t have to spend actually money unless it’s buy more gems, Dragoncash (but why would you?), and ether in the shop. And that stuff you can collect without paying actual money for it and I like that. You only have to pay if you don’t like to wait. Breeding dragon can “iffy” at times, but overall, I have no complaints. Only some ideas: Dragons modeled after the constellations would be nice. We already have the category of Galaxy Dragons, why have some modeled after the constellations? Keep up the great work Backflip. I can’t wait for more!
More dream dragons
by MrMeeeeSeeeks on 2018/05/23 02:39
We first got this game for my nephew who loves dragons but was a little to young to read. So naturally we had to read him any notification and all the dragon info. Later he grew bored so naturally we had to take it over since it's so addictive. Ok where is the dream island theme? That's all I really want. Also more dream dragons, more scary looking dragons. Now let's have fewer dragons that look like chickens or dragons that were designed by an 8 year old girl. Looking at you "love" dragon. 2 more things. 1 more snow covered trees, make sure one of them has no leaves. 2 give us the option to turn off the blue glow on twin eggs. Also to anybody looking to download this game and is worried about in app purchases don't be. You really don't have to spend anything on this game more than 95% of our park is free to play. The other 5% is me wanting to send the developers money. I know this game is free but I want them to continue updating it so buy things from time to time. If you don't want to that's fine you can literally get everything in this game with enough patience.
Fun, but there are issues
by Ohsnapadoodledoo on 2018/08/06 23:00
Hi, I have been playing dragon vale for 7 years now and I have been able to obtain many rare dragons. This game is about time and getting all the dragons. Although this game is very creative I have a couple of issues with the game! 1st of all gems are way to hard to get. That's a simple one but I wouldn't be mad if you kept it the same. 2- it took so much time to get gem dragons, but when I got them they only create 1 gem 1week or 1 gem a month. Saying this I think that lowering the time limit you have to wait would be nice. 3. Galaxy islands cost way to much. I have so much money in game and can't buy a 3rd island. 4. I respect the price of a main island (cause they are islands) but once you buy it, I don't think you should have to wait a day to use it. Finally 5. The perch of kairos doesn't speed everything up. It doesn't speed up the colosseum, It doesn't speed up islands. ( pretty sure ) so that's something I really don't like. Don't get me wrong I love the game so much! I even try to encourage my friends to play it. If your just reading this review because you want to see if it's good, it's great! Anyway those are my thoughts.
Love it but...

I really love this game and have played it for years now, but it seems as though the company is starting to get a little greedy. During special events we used to get daily prizes and games to earn stars/eggs/presents (whatever we happen to be earning during that event) but we don’t get those things anymore. It’s nearly impossible to collect all the daily “points”. The prizes that you can purchase with your collected “points” have gone up in price and so many new things added that even when I start the event already having half or more of the items there is no way possible, unless you spend real money, to even get anywhere close to collecting everything. There is also no group prize anymore where the community collects their extra points together to earn a prize. In order to collect all the stars so far in this event I have had to spend every single etherium I had saved up. I started a few days ago with over 110,000, trying to save up for new habitats, and I now have none. I had to use it ALL to hatch eggs to earn points. Which of course means I won’t be able to collect all the points today since I have none left and have a long breed or two going. I wish it were less - BUY BUY BUY - now and more - FUN FUN FUN - like it used to be.

I have played this game for over five years. A couple of times I have had literally every dragon. This game is fun, inexplicably addictive, and very engaging. BUT. In the past I could spend a bit of money here and there, kept up with everything just fine. Now there are insatiable demands to put money into this game by the developers, or you simply cannot hope to get the dragons you want. I don’t know how new folks don’t quit and give up. With literally hundreds of dragons now, special events virtually non-stop, and limited edition dragons available for such short times that you HAVE to spend money to get them, this game has become a serious downer. I used to be able to cycle through friends and only give gems to folks every couple of days because so many were playing. Only four are left...get it together, Backflip. You are ruining a game many of us have played for 5+years and made it so difficult for new players I have folks on my list that quit by level 14. Small amounts of money here or there are one thing. Charging non-stop “acquisition rent” causes the game to lose its appeal and playability. So disappointed with the direction this game has taken. Wouldn’t recommend to new players and can barely recommend those who have played for years.
Awesome w/ a few exceptions

I love Dragonvale; I played at its release, quit for about two years, and am back now. I like their addition of new dragons every so often, and they have done well with it for the past few months. However, I recently unlocked Tai’shen or whatever the coin-collecting Mythic dragon’s name is, and I am highly displeased. So much work and patience for a dragon to give me 5% of my total coin capacity. Really weak and deflating once unlocked; makes the effort and patience unrewarding. And lastly, the latest Whitbee Halloween event is and was HORRID. Worst imaginable event. Way too difficult, confusing, and impossible to obtain even close to everything unless you want to spend an ungodly amount of gems (not just hundreds, thousands). Way too many new dragons and the having to sacrifice your already-owned dragons and earned candy to evolve them into the new dragons, or to use your candy to transform other dragons into ghost forms. Stupid, awful, wearing event. Please don’t make the same mistake for Thanksgiving or Christmas! Please Backflip, I love this game, as do so many others. Don’t get greedy; you have my loyalty... for now. Don’t ruin your game.
Highly recommended. 🐉

I love this game. It’s probably the first of the dragon breeding simulation games, and is by far the best. The progress is perfectly paced and the game play is engaging. It is possible to spend money on the game, but not required whatsoever. However, this is a long term game. You cannot beat it in a month. It will take years. I consider this a good thing, as it means you will get content for a very long time. For casual people, I warn you, it will take a REALLY long time. I reached level 100 in about a year, but I play it a lot. A LOT. Also, Backflip adds new content all the time, so it’s kind of impossible to really “beat the game.” I know this bugs some people, myself included. You can 100% it, but in two months they’ll just add more stuff. All in all, an incredibly fun game experience that I suggest you try if you like long term thinking games. P.S. To all you people whining that the Rift is too hard and slow without money, I have all rift exclusives but three, tons of rift touched, and have cleared most of the etherium. All without spending a DIME.
I Love This Game but Some Problems
by TrashAtClash on 2017/12/16 13:31
I have been playing dragonvale from the start, and when I got a new phone, i still downloaded the game even if that meant starting over in the game. I am probably better than most of these commenters, not to brag but I am level 45 and have 69 epic dragons. This game is one of my favorites, but recently it has been acting up and clicking out of the app sometimes and also it says a wizard cast a spell on my park at least once before I am able to get in my park. Can you please fix this? Thanks, and when is the winter update coming out? I am looking for some new dragons :) Ok, so adding on to these problems I am also filing a complaint too, sorry. At least half of the times I log in it tells me to check out some rift dragon and I can’t click out of it, so I have to go to rift then to market are check out whatever new rift dragon I haven’t gotten, even though I just wanted to check up on my park. It is very annoying and can you please make this happen MUCH less or let you be able to tap out? Thanks for making a great game!
❤️❤️love it❤️❤️
by annony-moose on 2019/03/23 04:06
Even though it was a tiny bit boring at first, now it is my number one favorite app. I love getting new dragons and islands and around every corner, I say “I didn’t know that this game could do that!” I love how you can name your dragons things to go with how they look and act. The only problem I have is that the “Great” Nogard has a lot less than me in everything except for gems. This is the best game you can get on a mobile device. A question I have about the game is, why is DragonVale better than DragonVale World? It was made beforehand. Finally, about two years ago, I was into the level 60s, when BAM! I was back with a brand new park at level one. I was ready to quit the game forever, but I decided to give it one more go. I am so thankful I did and now I have things in the game that I wouldn’t have ever thought would be in it. If you read that entire thing you are tough. Pat yourself on the back. Also, for you people who had everything deleted, back it up onto whatever you can. I back it up onto Game Center AND google in case there is a glitch.
Awesome must try.
by Shrimpy 591 on 2019/04/10 17:56
No one has to spend money. If you do you’re addicted to competing with other players. I love the game yes I spend some money, but not tons. They need some money from all player to keep the game going . So I’ll spend some every now and then. With that said I love the game and their challenges. The events are not made to be played with the thought that “ I must get every dragon in the event now” it to be play with the under standing that it’s a challenge and you work hard for the ones you can get before it ends. If you even get one you Accomplished something . All the dragons in the event will return next year. And you might be able to breed them before that. This is a very fun and awesome event. And a very fun ,well played out game . Enjoy it stop trying to keep up with the people who buy the way through. And please stop whining. I would like to thank backflip for continuous events that are challenging , not boring , creative and cute. I love your game. Please continue to surprise us with your events and new dragons. Thank you loyal DragonVale player.
Amazing game, but a few minor things...
by Kay as other on 2017/12/24 01:56
I want to start this out by saying I’ve had the game for 6 years. That may bias me a bit, but it’ll also mean I know what I’m talking about a little more. This game has a very unique atmosphere about it, and it appears that it’s the first dragon-breeding game to ever come out on the App Store, so that earns it quite a bit of respect. The animations are really cute and the holiday/bi-monthly events that take place make people keep coming back for more. Breeding dragons is fun and it feels so rewarding when you finally get that rare/epic dragon you’ve been hoping for. However, one thing that has always been true about this game is that it’s got a very long loading time. That is, the game’ll take about 5-10 minutes just to get itself booted up at the start. From then on, it’s pretty smooth sailing except for the occasional crash (which’ll happen with any app from time to time) All in all though, Dragonvale is a very fun game with unique dragons, unique ideas, and definitely worth a download!
Love It So Much But A Few Things...
by no no no no no no no mo on 2019/09/29 23:56
Ok I love the game and idea of DragonVale. For example and one reason I like it is there are a variety of dragons, buildings, decorations, habitats, and island themes/islands to choose from. But, a few things I don’t like are that a lot of things cost thousands of gems and you can pay up to $100!!!!!! That’s a ridiculous amount of money to be spending on an app!! Some solutions might be to have a trade center where you could trade any of your currency or items for a certain amount of gems. Also, some things take waaaaaayyyyyy too long to be done. But, I gave the app a five star review because there are also different events that go on in DragonVale. You can buy lots of cool things and dragons with whatever currency goes with that event. Also the contribution center which really has a boost for XP. Also I like the way you can go on quests and races for prize and pieces to unlock legendary dragons. That’s what’s really cool to me, how you can do different things to get pieces for legendary and mythical dragons. Thanks!!
DragonVale
by Jay_grace on 2017/12/17 13:55
I personally like this game. The game is like a story. Every dragon has its own little description and background. The names of wizards or witches can sometimes appear more than once and it makes the experience all the better. I started this game when it first came out and I’m still loving it. I love the constant updates because it means that the app always has something new. I just wish that gems weren’t so hard to get. I’ve most likely spent over hundred dollars on gems but you lose gems so quickly in the game that you spend a lot and gain little. It takes so long to just reach hundred gems but you can lose all of them in less than a hour. I wish it could be easier to gain gems and cost of using gems were less. I love the game anyway but it’s costly. P.s. I think DragonVale should have a special when it’s made into a story or history special. I think that it would be amazing because I find myself wondering what the story behind DragonVale is and its history (even if it just a game).
I love it but...
by SHADE91736 on 2019/09/04 12:45
I love the game it’s amazing but there’s just a few things I really get annoyed at, first it’s so hard to level up I always get duplicate dragons and for the “but”..the updates are amazing but for me it just seems harder and harder to get the rare dragons like I understand it isn’t easy to get good dragons but like I’m mostly getting fire and plant dragons, and also the npc “The great nogard “ just makes me feel sad and let’s me down kinda like not with words like his park every new update gets released he gets all the dragons on the spot and when I visit his park I feel like I would never be able to get good stuff like he have five sun dragons and 4 mom dragons and a lot more legendary dragons, me and my sister just started playing last year and and we just feel sad when a new update comes out and I’m not blaming the update i love em all just the great nogard makes us feel bad he’s like bragging kinda i don’t know how to explain it, and maybe tone down the diamonds for the dragons like I get if there a lot of diamonds but like it’s to much for my opinion T~T that’s it for now bye!!!
Awesome Game!
by MLP gamer 72 on 2019/03/03 16:04
This game is awesome! There’s collecting, decorating, cute dragons, rare dragons, and much more! I would say this game is perfect, but it’s not. Many things take a LONG TIME. Racing, breeding, hatching. Sometimes I’m like “FINALLY! It’s taken eight hours, and my dragons are done breeding!” And then I’m like, “Oh wait! That’s right! Another eight hours of waiting for my egg to hatch!” Sometimes that time is wasted, because I know what dragon is hatching (because of the colors and patterns on the egg) and I already have it! Also, WAY too many things cost gems, I have millions of coins, and only 250 gems. And EVERYTHING costs gems. Well, ok, I might be exaggerating, but still! And I get the things that cost gems are meant to be “rare” but that’s a lot of rare stuff! Also sometimes the events last so long! An event that was CLEARLY meant for Valentine’s Day, is still going on! And it’s March 3rd. And I don’t really like the Event, I like seeing my dragons colors. In conclusion DEFINITELY buy the game, but there are a few things the developers should fix.
Great game that is forever fun.
by mvirgo17 on 2019/06/07 21:58
I’ve read many reviews on this game that complain that you have to spend money to enjoy it, or that everything takes too long (which I did believe at first), and that’s not the truth at all! I play this game every single day and there’s always something new to enjoy. Dragons may cost a lot of gems to buy straight from the store, but if you know your breeding strategies, there is no need to even visit the store. I’ve not spent a single penny on this game and I’ve reached level 32 in the span of a month and a half. To enjoy this game, you need patience, because yes, breeding and building takes awhile. But if you leave it for a few hours and do something else, the time goes by so quickly. There are many things to do: racing, rolling dice in the mystic hall, rearranging your island (which I do every other day practically lol), breeding cool dragons, etc. DragonVale hasn’t gotten old yet and I don’t suspect that it will! I highly recommend this game to anyone who appreciates good quality graphics, exciting events, and the chance to build your own world.

So I’ve been playing DragonVale for a while now. I just passed 100 days a few weeks ago and I don’t have very many complaints about the game. There are however a few things that bother me. 1- making friends. I do not have a Facebook that I use. My friends do not have a Facebook that they use. It is a little unfair for us because the only way to have friends in dragonvale is through Facebook. It should be as easy as searching for their park name and boom there it is. But sadly this isn’t the case. 2- celebration organization. Whenever new decorations come out they make it really easy to buy one of them. Then you have to scroll and scroll and scroll until you find all of the others because there isn’t a section for just the celebration decorations. It would make it so much easier to be able to get them all if they had a “ featured “ section or something 3- thankfully there are a lot of themes that run in the game like The Om of Noms and Roar of the Rift and all of the others but when there isn’t one of these going on I find the game to be not as fun. I get a little board with it. If there were more little mini games and stuff even when the theme isn’t going on it might be a little more fun. That’s really all I have to say. I enjoy the rift even though I don’t expand it very much (I really don’t need to). I really enjoy breeding all of my dragons and organizing my park but I REALLY would like to be able to visit more parks and make more friends. Thanks !!,
Getting fed up with the changes
by ......Please Read on 2018/11/17 17:47
I’ve been playing this game since about a year after it was released and I had been loving until about the last year of updates. The events are so short and one right after the other giving the players no time to relax and get other dragons that are not part of events. Instead of a week to get your prizes once the event ends you have 24 hours and no time to waste. Everything in the events cost way to much and it’s impossible to get the amount of event currency you need to buy even one dragon. For example, it’s about eleven days into the most current event and I only have a 2,000 treats and only getting about 500 out of the 1000 allowed in a day (Which the limit itself is unnecessary). It’s just going down hill as the only way to get anything in events now is to spend money, which I refuse to do. From the newest update the thing I hate the most is how once your dragons are done breeding it takes you automatically to the nursery. Stop. Get rid of it. It’s just a pain and does not help anything. So please game developers; read the reviews and make the changes because your game is becoming less and less enjoyable.
Love it! With a great response team

I can’t say DragonVale has been glitch free over the years, but, most of them have been relatively minor. I can say that all of them are resolved very quickly, and in most cases with apology gifts to boot. I love DragonVale. I've been playing since the game launched, with only one hiatus due to a loss of a loved one. I do like the rift, it takes a good strategy, but there are perks to it. I admit some of it is frustrating though . The extreme increase in dragon treats needed to level is just ridiculous considering how costly it is to plant food. The extremely low success rate to breed the new rift breeds is very frustrating too. Please consider removing or raising habitat limits. There's a self imposed limit space-wise anyways. Also, PLEASE find a new way to add friends since game center app was removed by apple. I do not do social media, so I'd really appreciate being able to use an in game network to add friends, or at least be able to type in their ID to send a friend request. Thanks!!
DragonVale is simply amazing
by Madmonster112 on 2017/11/25 18:18
DragonVale has always been an amazing game because it doesn't force you down a path where you can't choose but gives you the basics and just throws you into the game. It doesn't force you to watch ads to progress and just asks if you would like to watch an ad for a simple coin or gem boost. Most apps like to throw ads in your face after every thing you do but DragonVale stays away from that and just has it in the background for you to do if you would like. Finally, I love DragonVale because it includes tons of features like leveling up your dragons for higher success of your dragons or having the rift included into the game to give it a fresh twist. But I often see people complain and I can understand, the rift starts off as confusing but as you progress through it it becomes easier to understand how it works and what to do with it. DragonVale has definitely progressed since I've first started playing it and I love it.
Best Game Ever, But I have an Idea
by AbigailA24601 on 2017/12/03 20:57
I love DragonVale!!! I’m at level 33 and I’ve had this game for ages. It’ll be a LONG time before I get rid of this game, but I do have an idea. As a rare, and I mean RARE, occasion, players should be given the chance to buy gems using dragon cash. Now, I understand that this is how Backflip Studios gets the money to pay for things, but hear me out. My first reason is that this is a child friendly game, and not many kids are able to just buy gem packs. I know I wouldn’t be able to! Secondly, only primary elemental dragons are worth dragon cash. This is annoying, because the cheapest dragons that aren’t worth dragon cash are 25 gems, which leads me to the next problem. Earning gems is really hard, and usually includes trying to breed dragons that will get you gems when you complete the goal of getting that dragon. Those dragons tend to be the more expensive ones that are hard to breed. Therefore, I think that on a rare occasion, players should be able to buy gems for dragon cash for a limited amount of time.
Pay to Play/Cash Grab
by Rocketblaster89 on 2018/11/15 16:14
I’ve been playing DragonVale for almost 2 years, if not longer. One of my friends got me into the game. He has been playing for almost 6 years and wanted someone else to enjoy it with him. Up until the recent events, we used to compete to see who could get the newest dragon the fastest, or who could get the most event currency. Now he is thinking about quitting. I have never spent actual money on this game. That was never the point. I played because it was free and fun, and relatively easy to breed dragons or obtain from events. These last few months, there has been a significant shift in the game dynamics to make us try and pay actual money to obtain all of the dragons. I refuse. This isn’t the DragonVale I started with, and if this keeps going this path, I will not keep playing. I do appreciate some of the changes though, and I don’t want the developers to think that I want to play the same ole DragonVale day after day. With that being said, things have to be made easier and more user friendly. The evolving is a great idea in theory. What’s not a great idea is allowing us to get 16 tendrils of white before we get our 1 tendril of red needed to evolve. Do you see the issue with that?
Long time player
by Lady Cherie on 2018/07/19 14:04
I’ve played this game since it came out. I think that explains how I feel about it: I enjoy the game. HOWEVER, I’m very disappointed right now over a few issues. First, the change on how to add friends. It’s terrible. I have a young family member who desperately wants us to be friends and he’s heartbroken because we can’t. I will not link my fb to this game, and he does not have one. So we can’t be friends. Please add a feature similar to the old one so we can add each other. Secondly, the influx of ads is frustrating. I didn’t really mind the little flying ad dude or the ads elsewhere but seriously? Now we can speed up the incubation time? Come one guys, you’re messing your game up! If you hired someone from EA please fire them. The gaming community is tired of the pay per every little upgrade stuff. Other than those frustrations, which will eventually lead to me to no longer play, I still enjoy this game. The dragon designs are fantastic and the design team deserves a raise. I’d love to see more stuff happening in the rift. The islands in the rift are getting excessively expensive so, maybe check that out too!
