Dreamworks brings the exciting world of Dragon Adventures to Windows Phone

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is well underway in cinemas, but Windows Phone owners are now able to transform the real world into the fantasy realm they know and love from the films. DreamWorks Dragons Adventure is a new game that really lets the player immerse themselves in a world with dragons and there are some neat graphics and animations to boot. Previously available for the Lumia 2520, it's now out for Lumia Windows Phone owners.

The goal of the game is to essentially train your dragon, rescue captured dragons from the evil dragon Trappers (enough dragons for you yet?) and explore. There are multiple regions of the world to visit and play through, each sporting unique quests that need to be completed. Different terrain, objects, and weather brings the game alive and prevents it from becoming stale quickly. What's more is players are encouraged to leave the house and play while on the go.

Dragon Adventures

It's a super cool concept and one we strongly recommend everyone check out, even if you're not a fan of the films. Unfortunately for those wielding hardware with 512MB of RAM, Dragons Adventure requires 1GB. Even with the more advanced Windows Phones we experienced some performance issues and some lengthy loading times. Beware!

Also, did we mention this game was a Windows exclusive title? It's also possible to use the companion app to start up quests and more. Overall, it's a really nice experience. The game supports the Lumia 2520, 1520, 1020, Icon, 928, 925 and the recently announced Lumia 930, as well as all Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets.

  • Amazing
  • Its a more or less complete revamp of the original buggy one that came pre-installed with the 2520.  Hopefully they've worked out the annoying bugs
  • great news :)
  • Soon enough you'll see a sh*tty comment from that M0TH3R FRAGILE dude. -_-
  • 5 seconds early ;)
  • LOL yeah, I think he needs to be blocked, I'm getting tired of his craps.
  • Only 5 seconds later .. That escalated quickly :D
  • It's just not that hard to guess. LOL
  • No Xbox,no download. -_- Lol,jk.Just can't download it because of 512mb ram. xD
  • LOL!
    BTW, I don't have much space left either. Both phone memory and SD memory are at its limit :/
  • Lol,I have space,just got bored of Asphalt 8,but 512mb ram is a curse ;_;
  • In that case, you should've gone for 525 assuming you're a core gamer (But I think it MIGHT have not been launched by the time you purchased the 620, right?)
  • At least Lumia still has some exclusives these days lol
  • Can't download. Lumia 920
  • +920
  • 920 isn't mentioned in article.
  • That part wasn't on the article at the time I commented, I think
  • I don't understand not being available for the 920.
  • Same here
  • Can't download 920
  • Pete here from Microsoft. The game producer uses a 920 as his daily driver so we are right there with ya! We wanted to be sure we nailed the performance on the 920 first. It's looking good so you will see it soon.
  • +920 thx for the love
  • e-e thanks!!! +920
  • Will be avaliable for lumia 1320? Since it has almost the same spects as 920. :)
  • Exclusive for Windows ??? That's welcome......:)
  • Wow
  • Can't play on my surface 2☹ don't want to play on my Lumia 1520. The screen is still too small for entertainment
  • No.....
    No download, no play, no xbox, no 512Mb ram no fair, its just like racist...
  • Why are players encouraged to leave the house and play on the go? I didn't quite understand that bit.
  • +620
  • Oh. Can't get it on my Surface 2 OR my Lumia 920?! I feel obsolete and they're both less than 2 years old! :(
  • The app description states that it is only available for select Nokia devices, so it is not available for Surface pro. I know not why it's not available for 920 but perhaps it's the age of this handset that excludes it.
  • Unfortunately, they still don't have Rise of Berk, which I prefer.
  • Downloading :)
  • No Lumia 920
  • No 820? It is 1gb ram too
  • -820
  • Technically the game supports all Windows Phone devices with at least 1 GB. Not only those listed there ...
  • Nope
  • NO htc 8x? 1gb ram too
  • Why it is compatible with L925 and not with L920 is beyond me. They had melted the plastic faster than aluminium while playing this game :) ?
  • I have it a full movie saved to sd card
  • Its not letting me download on my 1320... (UK)
  • It's not available for Nokia Lumia 820, 920, 1320, 638 & 525 even though they have 1 GB RAM.
  • Must need cyan as it tells me not available for my device or region.
  • cant dowload,why???lumia 525
  • poor my 520 :(
  • Only Lumia 2520??! Why the hell can't I download this to my Windows computer?!?
  • Maybe Nokia paid them to make this games? That's why it is Lumia exclusive, stop whining.
  • Who owns Nokia devices nowadays and produces their own range of slates this could work on?
  • doenst work on my surface pro
  • And to address some other comments, the game works on all Surface devices.  http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-tt/app/dreamworks-dragons-adventure...
  • Freaking poor my lumia 820 >:((
  • Why the hell Nokia Lumia 1320 is not supported...it is better than 925 & 928.....add support.....or remove this shit
  • The closest thing to Panzer Dragoon on a mobile device and my 920 gets no love :(
  • Lovely, downloading now!
  • Exclusive for Windows and yet most WP users won't be able to play it, sigh...
  • Says its not available for surface rt.
  • Its not available for 525!!
  • I have to admit to feeling a little awkward being a grown man and having them ask for my parents email to unlock a character. Am I too old for this game? :)
  • Looks good but lags ugly even on a lumia 1520 with 8.1 DP
  • How the hell did they ditch 920 -_-
  • I hope and pray it will be available on our 920
  • Let us know if it becomes available on more models. I'm keen to play it on my 920.
  • Lags too much on my 1520
  • Lags hugely on my 1520. Threw it off.
  • Why not available for lumia 1320
