Perfect for Children
My daughters tried several games for the hour trial... this was their favorite by far, and when I bought the full version for them, they literally hugged each other and danced around the living room. The play is easy enough for my 7 and 8 year olds, but also enough of a challenge that I am having fun with it as well.
The dragons are adorable, and the other critters are kind of ccute as well. When the first dragon got big enough to have flame, my daughter told it out loud that she was so proud. lol. I strongly reccomend this for family oriented play- children must be able to read so probably not younger then 6 or 7 depending on reading level, but once they can read the instructions I think they'll have a lot of fun with this. Mine do. There is a "story line" to complete, but the levels can be played indefinately without progressing and still be fun. They get to raise baby dragons and feed them. The dragons ggive gems that the kids can use to make jewelry. I have two girls... little boys may or may not be as engaged by this. I urge you to try it for an hour... I think after that you'll either know it's not right for your child, or (like mine) fall in love with it an dbuy the full version.

This game is excellent! Hatch dragon eggs, create jewelry, and protect your babies while working your way through the challenges. A little short, but is fun to play again!

Playing it over and over
Ok this game is awesome! Everyone already writes in their reviews that its too short, and it is... but i still like to play it over and over again!
The levels are fun, you get to choose your own upgrades and the dragons are just adorable!
There are a few bugs in the game though... even though the food chef you get at one point is really helpfull for feeding your dragons, it also complicates the game a bit, because your cursor sometimes changes in food even though the dragon doesnt want it. This means youre not able to click on any gems under that particular dragon.
There are some hidden surprises in the game as well...
All in all, i love this game!!!

I don't normally buy time management games but this one's ratings got my attention. I found it addictive! Although aimed at younger players, the cartoon atmosphere of the old video games was very enjoyable. Hatching and caring for the RIGHT dragons for each chapter proved to be somewhat of a challenge. Lots of goals completed before you had to play a level (earn x amount, collect x amount) Nice that you have a chance to go back and play the chapters in order to get more achievement awards.

Very fun, very cute
This game is very very cute. Who wouldn't want to raise baby dragons? It also dosen't feel like "every other game" even though it has similar aspects. I loved playing this game, and I actually prefer this version to dragon keeper 2.

What a great game!
I loved this game! It was challenging, fun and innovative. The making jewelry to fund your journey part is awesome. I would recommend this game to everyone!

I love this game, and happy I purchased it! It may not be challenging, but it's very fun. My only negative feedback is that I wish there was a relax mode or continuous mode where you can just play and not need to have specific goals to meet. The plot was also very short. My son also enjoys the game, because it is tolerant of mistakes. All in all, a good game.

We love this game! It is so much fun. Just hard enough to be a challenge but not so hard that it isn't fun. We have played it multiple times and it just doesn't get bad
