As shown in last screen shot from my character creation above, you can see that it has a good 3D Graphics. And it beat up MapleStory and LaTale’s graphics.

Character Status Points
Status (Vitality, Intelligence , Agility, Strength) is automatically distributed, however you need to distribute skill points on your class tree.

Game Play and Combat
Every controls run smooth, i never experience lag. Their combat is nice too, however the cons is it’s like an old arcade game the the great thing is to become one of the best on how to spam skills while doing pvp, pve and others using your finger. It’s like playing in a gameboy, you can beat your opponent if you are faster

Special Feature
As for me, i find it cool when Dragonica has a Cooking feature. You can loot recipe from monster. Each recipe has instruction on how to prepare food and what are the ingredients needed. Upon cooking, you can create special consumable items that can serve as your healing potion which you can you use in the battle.

Posted ImageDragonica also has a Pet System, you can trained and raise your bet. As soon as your pet is trained, it can help during your battle.
