The Dragon Quest franchise has been described as that of a cultural icon (in Japan, particularly in the gaming world). The latest entry, described as having the typical “hero gets to save the kingdom and the princess from a great evil” style plot, is now [finally] available for Android!
As expected, the graphics quality is amazing and the game-play feels more like it would on a console rather than a mobile platform. Less expected is that this 8th-installment of the Dragon Quest series is designed to be played with a single hand and in portrait mode.
Luckily the followers of the series are a dedicated bunch because the price-tag is a hefty one for a mobile app, with a Canadian price tag of nearly $30. Thankfully this is all-inclusive and you do not need to worry about making a bunch of in-app purchases to further drive up the cost.
