Dracoo Balances Casualness and Fun

It’s most definitely true that not everyone here is a gamer. After all, XDA is a place that consists of some pretty hardcore developmental work. However, we mustn’t just simply cast aside some of the other works of development—the ones that bring a little bit of lightheartedness to development. One such instance is a game called Dracoo.

Dracoo, developed by XDA Forum Member xSheetGames, is a game where you, the player, controls an adorable dragon called Dracoo through pleasant 2D scenery while avoiding and destroying obstacles. The player controls Dracoo forwards, backwards, up, and down to dodge inanimate obstacles such as fire, boulders, and pillars. And by collecting chilli peppers scattered along the way, Dracoo can fire fireballs to kill enemies such as devil puppies on wings, as well as part of the landscape. As of now, the game has six playable levels, with more possibly being introduced in the future.  XSheetGames also receives kudos for providing the opportunity for the community to contribute to the game’s development with a level creator.

Dracoo is one of those games that balances casualness and fun. It’s not too hardcore, but not too easy. Instead, it’s right there in the middle where fun can be truly enjoyed. XSheetGames has made Dracoo available on Android versions 2.3.3 and newer and free in the Play store, so whether you’re a die-hard gamer or a gaming noob like I am, head over to the original thread for more details.
