Android Game: Dragon Revolt

Dragon Revolt is a fantasy MMORPG developed by Snail Games in 2017.


Build somewhat like how Forsaken World Mobile was established, the game will offer similar features like traveling to different parts of a map through portals or flying, gaining little experience points when battling wild creatures, accepting and repeating quests.

As a MMORPG you can obtain equipment and other items by logging multiple times a week or a day… you can accept side quests and follow dungeon events.

Dragon Revolt is a 2017 take on the classic fantasy MMORPG. The game is centered on the brutal war between two, the Lothelan Empire and the Ashitar Blood Alliance. Align yourself with a faction, choose a DPS, HEAL or T, team up in boss raids or take to the battlefield for the chance to attain eternal glory. Learn a whole slew of spells and skills along the way, and lead your faction to victory! Does the future belong to the Empire or the Alliance? Start playing Dragon Revolt today to write your own fate!

My character is a Level 29 Barbarian Warrior – who looks like a Warcraft Orc. Probably because of this game I started to replay Warcraft 3 – Reign of Chaos (subject which will be treated in another article).

Character General Details:

Level: 29     Class: Warrior     Race: Barbarian

Power: 127     Intelligence: 55     Agility: 54     Physique: 64

Attack: 892     Movement: 6     Armor: 788     Magic Resist: 619

Equipment Details:

Inferno Longsword Level 10 (Fortifying Level +20).

Tidal Bonechain Level 28 (Fortifying Level +11).

Inferno Bone Ring Level 19 (Fortifying Level +13).

Tidal Wrist Guards Level 23 (Fortifying Level +20).

Tidal Spaulders Level 27 (Fortifying Level +10).

Tidal Helm Level 22 (Fortifying Level +20).

Tidal Armor Level 21 (Fortifying Level +6).

Tidal Belt Level 24 (Fortifying Level +4).

Inferno Leg Guards Level 15 (Fortifying Level +6).

Tidal Heavy Boots Level 26 (Fortifying Level +6).


Aside from being able to use weapons in order to battle foes and other players, you can also set up 4 spells to help you in your quests. My character possesses Light Aura, Heroic Charge, Meteorite Attack, Bloodsoul Awakening, Don’t Back Down and Challenge Roar. You can upgrade each spell with every level you grow, so that the spell level coincides with the character level.

The game also offers upgrades for each piece of equipment, you can craft items using technologies like forging, engineering, alchemy, you can use mounts and pets to travel faster and to have support in battles.

The soundtrack is good, the animations and the character design are well made, the only thing I am disappointed in is the fact that you cannot gain significant experience points by battling, you level up completing various quests and following a story-line.

Age of Empires IV – Trailer

If you consider yourself a gamer – then you probably played at least one strategy game, and probably back in the days you had fun with Age of Empires. I personally enjoyed Age of Empires 2, played like hundreds of hours, and sometimes I still play it. And now the fourth installment in the series will be published by Microsoft Studios.

The game is currently developed by Relic Entertainment.

Also the previous games, Age of Empires, Age of Empires 2 and Age of Empires 3 are currently re-made and they will be published as Definitive Editions, which is a complete high-quality remaster of all the titles.

Freedom Fighters – Guide/Play-through [ver. 1.0.0.]

I remember back then when I was enjoying different games, old games, good games, filled with action and interesting stories and since I missed some of them, I decided to look up some of my old favorite games and replay them. One title that is situated among them is Freedom Fighters. A good story, graphics look a little bit terrible, but I don’t seek only graphics in games, therefore – games should be enjoyed.

SPOILERS/HINTS/DETAILS/GUIDES from this point further.

Freedom 2017-08-20 13-06-31-71
Developed in 2003 by IO Interactive and published by EA (Electronic Arts) – Freedom Fighters takes you into an alternative reality and an imagined historical period – in which the Soviet Union occupied New York City. You are a simple plumber, Chris Stone working along with your brother Troy, when you have to take a job inside Isabella Angelina’s apartment, an activist from a group fighting against the soviets.

Another crappy Monday it seems at first, until you reach the apartment and find it empty. Not long after that, a group of Russian soldiers led by General Tatarin enters the building asking about the female activist.

Freedom 2017-08-20 13-12-24-39

– [game starts here] –

  you have the third person view of your character, you can move around, crouch, jump and attack. [keys W, A, S, D, Ctrl, Space bar].

– you are equipped with a wrench [default item/weapon in various games like Prey, Bioshock, Half Life, Doom].

This is the very first weapon you find in the game, you first use it to beat a Soviet soldier to death in a Apartment Block hallway, freeing many hostages, along with the mysterious ‘Mr Jones‘. It has a good attack and can be used for more stealthy kills, but loses almost all use later in the game except for opening manhole covers and prison gates.

General Tatarin orders the destruction of the apartment – you will have to hide not to be hit by the bullets storming down from one of the helicopters outside. Exit the apartment building and take down the soviet soldier in the hallway. You save the civilians and one of them – Mr. Jones – will take you to a safer place, assisting you in taking down the soldiers that will attack you.

– gained Pistol [8/15 rounds] on the rooftop after exiting the hallway.

After you escape to the roof along with Jones, who kills an unsuspecting Soviet Soldier allowing you to climb up and claim the pistol for yourself, as soon as you run along a second roof a Soviet Helicopter deploys troops, allowing you to kill them at your leisure. It is a fairly weak weapon, useful only in tight situations in the game were you may run out of ammunition for a specialized weapon. It holds a 17 round magazine with a maximum carrying capacity of 60 rounds and resembles the Beretta M9 pistol, a side-arm that is not standard issue in the Russian military.

Freedom 2017-08-20 13-15-50-38

At this point you can climb up on different parts of the rooftops and observe the panic below – people running and trying to hide from the tank attacking the street and the helicopter creating frustration and distress.

By climbing down some stairs you will have the chance to take out a group of three soldiers. You can use the environment to your advantage. Shooting a barrel will cause and explosion and the death of the enemies. Also shooting cars will have the same effect.

– gained Medic Kit – restores health points to the character, also can be used to heal a wounded person or a wounded recruit. By healing other NPCs you gain charisma points and with more charisma that you have, the more squad members you can recruit – with a maximum of twelve.

– exit into the street and move along the distresses NPCs, following Mr. Jones. 

– rescue Bagzton and receive +25 points of charisma.

– gained Molotov Cocktail before exiting the next building.

First used by the Finnish against the Russians during the Russo-Finnish War (Also known as the Winter War), the Molotov Cocktail is the first explosive used in game, and is the most common explosive in the whole game, its only other explosive being the hand grenade and the C4. It works fairly well, able to burn enemies (as well as the player if he is caught in its flame) to death with 1-2 Molotov’s. It is only used by the player and one Freedom Fighter during the opening invasion of Governor’s Island. The total number of Molotov cocktails carried at a time is 10.

By eliminating the rest of the soldiers in your way – you end up in a dead-end with a manhole which can be used to get to safety into the sewers under the city. You can open manhole covers to get to the underground base, to quick-save or to change locations on your map.

You assist to the first news broadcast after the recent events – from which you learn that the soviets and here to restore peace and stability to the troubled country that America is in the game’s present.

– enter sewer base. This is a safe zone, used for planning the next moves and storing equipment. You get your first two missions.

Freedom 2017-08-20 13-25-51-97
– gained Assault Rifle after entering the Post Office Area.

A standard issue kit piece found with both rebels and Russians alike, the assault rifle is a direct descendant of the original AK-47 and serves as the standard infantry rifle of the Soviet Armed Forces. It is either an AK-74, the 47’s replacement in Soviet service starting in 1974, or an AK-101 or AK-103, both of which were designed and adopted in the 1990s’s. A reliable all-purpose rifle, the assault rifle can be found at the Post Office and the Police Precinct early in the game, and appears constantly until the end. The assault rifle has a magazine capacity of 30 rounds and a carrying capacity of 180 rounds. Fully available to the player for use, it is used almost universally by regular Soviet troops, while stolen and captured stocks are also frequently being turned against the Soviets by Rebel forces. A few Soviet Security Forces members are seen carrying it, along with two Soviet Commandos in the cut-scene that plays when Chris Stone returns to find the main Rebel base captured.

At this point you will need C4 to destroy the fuel tanks in this area.

The C4 is a very useful weapon, however its only purpose is in demolitions objectives. These targets include, yet are not limited to helipads, bridges, and generators. You can carry only 4 on your person.

Visiting the Police station area you will encounter a group of cops battling some snipers. By blowing up the fuel tanks you will also get rid of the snipers. By using the subway tunnel in the Police station area you will manage to fight your way into the station, eliminate the soviet soldiers and rescue Isabella.

A good strategy here is to hide around a corner and use Molotov cocktails on the soldiers coming your way, since they tend to form groups and then come towards you. This way you can eliminate multiple targets at once. Also using the environment seems to help you complete the mission.

– gained shotgun inside the Police station.

The strongest weapon in the game, the Combat Shotgun has a magazine of 8 shells and a maximum carrying capacity of 80 shells. Its weapon spread is the highest in the game, reducing accuracy greatly with range. The weapon is the first two handed weapon the player can get from his sewer base. Both the player and rebels use it. Only Soviet officers are seen with it, though occasionally a Soviet soldier can be seen with it too. It is modeled off the SPAS-12 shotgun.

I don’t quite use this weapon in this game, but I prefer it when battling zombies in some other titles [Half Life, Left4Dead]. After clearing the underground parking lot, the main lobby and the first two floors of the Police Station, you get to rescue Isabella Angelina and rise the American flag on top of the building, completing the mission. Below are my stats of the mission.

Freedom 2017-08-20 14-41-21-55
Continuing with the game you will have to regain control, over the region of the Post Office. You can recruit two Freedom Fighters and order them to attack the soldiers ahead. High places are good for strategic maneuvers and also for observing the actions of the enemies, observing infiltration points and making routes for a better counter-attack. In this mission you also save your brother who was taken hostage.

Completion of each mission takes you back to the safe house in the sewers.
