Dragonvale is a SIMS style game that allows players to build and decorate their own dragon park, in order to house dragons for view of the (virtual) public. Construction of buildings, roads and decorations is achieved by selecting the chosen item from the market menu, purchasing and then dropping and dragging into the desired position in the park. Obtaining dragons is achieved by purchasing eggs and waiting for them to hatch. The dragons can then be placed in habitats for public view. Coins are earned by virtual visitors to the park – the more impressive your park, the more coins earned. Red gems can be used to speed up building and hatching processes and to purchase items in the market. The aim of the game is to keep building your park, adding dragons and feeding them to make them bigger in order to earn as many coins as possible.
