Puzzle & Dragons is a combination of a puzzle game and dungeon crawler for Android devices, in which the main task of the player is to fight with the monsters he encounters. The formula largely resembles that of the Pokemon series - by collecting our own creatures, we gradually face stronger and stronger opponents. The Japanese studio GungHo Online Entertainment is responsible for the production.
The action of the game does not follow any particular path - the world in which we find ourselves gives us full freedom in terms of actions taken. The land we travel through is full of magic and fantastic creatures that we regularly face in loose, unrelated missions. In the course of adventures we can meet over 700 unique, obedient beasts, each of which not only differs in appearance, but also in statistics and skills.
The fight itself, however, is based on a completely separate concept, strongly modeled on classic logical games, consisting in arranging the indicated elements in rows. Puzzle & Dragons, drawing on titles such as Bejeweled, offers a duel system totally dependent on how we deal with colorful jewels on a separate board. If the player manages to make the right combination, he attacks the opponent. The more stones he destroyed at once, the more damage he inflicted.
Puzzle & Dragons is a free, microtransactional title. Players can buy out real cash in a currency that allows them to take part in a special lottery, in which the rarest and most powerful monsters are rewarded. If you don't want to spend money, you can get so-called Magic Stones by playing regularly. The production has also seen numerous thematic spin-offs combining the mechanics of the game with other popular worlds, such as Mario or Dragon Ball.
