EDIT: There seems to be a trend in the comments about the controls. Please try the mouse controls before reviewing, and if you still find it difficult/frustrating let me know.

Play as the mystical Chinese dragon of legend and cleanse the dark spirits before they can enter the sacred cherry tree.

Right click for quality control.

You can switch to mouse control and mute the music in the pause menu.

Super hard game! I have no control :(

Got as far as part 7 on the first play. Very beautiful art and music wise. The controls are rather hard to use. Also I feel there could be something a bit more in the background even if it was just a still image.

Simple, straightforward, but very frustrating.

I can see why people are getting frustrated with the controls. I switched to the mouse controls at your recommendation, but I don't think either were very good. What frustrated me wasn't the buttons or mouse, but the way Shen Long moved. His turning circle was so huge and it took so long to turn around if you didn't line up each interception perfectly, the spirits would have no trouble getting to the sacred cherry tree. It was so difficult missing a spirit by just a few millimeters and then spend precious time trying to turn around (with varying levels of success) only to watch it get there first. And, while chasing the one spirit that got away, letting other spirits get close or damage the tree before you had the chance to improve your course.

I appreciate that this may have been an intentional challenge of the game, but it was ultimately frustrating. A dragon that could turn a little faster, or move a little quicker would have made this game many times more satisfying to play. I'm afraid the best part was the music.

Hope you take my criticism into account for future games!


not bad

controls are a bit sketchy. Artwork is nice. Background imagery could be more diversified. I enjoyed the concept. Love to see more from you.

Me Gusta!

Gaddamit man, a work of art, I dunno why ppl mess up the controls, it's not that hard, it's just chalanging, and I demand you make a 3d version with background!
