Linux Game: Dragon Fable

About.com Rating 4.5 Star Rating

By Andre Haas

Dragon Fable is an RPG, where you exist in a fantasy-like world, killing all sorts of creatures. You can join quests, gain levels, and buy new equipment. You will have fun completing quests, with a smile on your face brought on by the occasional bits of humor.

Gameplay

The gameplay is very open-ended. You have complete control over what you want to do. It’s your choice to be a warrior, a mage, or a rouge. You can also choose what weapons to use. Admittedly, things do get a bit repetitive after a while in a quest. In one of the easiest quests, you must clear out a giant hollow tree from small, goblin-like “sneevils”. You advance through numerous levels, Yes, there are several variations of the “sneevil”, but they still end up being repetitive.

Graphics and Audio

The graphics are quite good. Though not 3D, they have a realistic feel. Each character has a number of body parts. Each attack, hit, block, and death is nicely animated. However, I have to say that sometimes the way enemies die can be quite awkward. The sound, on the other hand, is very stable and basic. The optional music is hard to get working.

Special Feature

One interesting part about Dragon Fable is the way your enemies always challenge you. Quests can be re-done, but they get harder as you advance levels. You will encounter new monsters, and can win greater prizes. This may make up the fact that Dragon Fable does not have a large amount of quests.

Bottom Line

This RPG is highly recommended to fans of Adventure Quest, another game made by the same authors. Dragon Fable is pretty much just an improved version of Adventure Quest. So if you are new to Artix's games, you would probably prefer this one.
