  1. Forgot to mention, you can get Dead Space free over at Origin at the moment. Great horror game that made me jump out of my skin loads of times. don’t know when the freebie offer ends. you will need the origin client installed and you’ll need to create an EA/Origin account. well worth it for this excellent AAA game released back in Oct 2008

    Dragon Keeper 2:

    In Brief:

    Dragon Keeper 2 is the second in the Dragon Keeper series (obv), a playable time management game similar in mechanics to Farm Frenzy, but with a Dragon theme. :)

    DK2 001

    Installation:

    Dragon Keeper 2 downloads to a 90.5 MB zip file (35MB larger than Dragon Keeper) that unpacks to a read me and a wrapped setup activation file (the orange colored file with the key symbol), plus there’s a setup file with security (setup.gcd) that’s protected from being hacked. This file may case some security software to alert the user to a possible malware attack, but it will be a false positive. The game giveaway team check all game giveaways for malware using several well known anti -malware suites. There has never been a game giveaway infected with malware since the project started back in Dec 2006.

    The installed game is 214MB in size (70MB larger than Dragon Keeper)and installs to the following path:

    C:\program files (x86)\Playrix Entertainment\Dragon Keeper 2

    There is a shortcut installed to the desktop and start menu/programs folder and there’s an uninstaller installed to the start menu/programs folder, which you can also find inside the games installer folder. Once the game has been installed you can delete the giveaway setup files and read me instructions.

    I’ve tested the game on Vista, Win 7 and Win 8.1 , and Dragon Keeper 2 works okay on all three platforms. I no longer install Win XP, so can’t confirm whether it works on that operating system.

    Introduction:

    This game has never been given away here before.

    If you miss Dragon Keeper 2 today you can get it 24/7 from Jenkat Games and Gametop; and, if you missed the first in the series, i.e. Dragon Keeper, you can get it 24/7 from either MyPlayCity (MPC), Gametop or Jenkat Games. Please do remember the possible toolbars/home page changes, browser changes as well as other things that you may get if you don’t uncheck the check boxes during installation. MyPlayCity games are particularly aggressive at the moment and I’ve been told that they force you to follow one of the negatives before you can install the game (i.e. allow a toolbar or home page change); for this reason I recommend downloading the Jenkat version. By the way, MPC hit a thousand free games the other week.

    The Game:

    Forget ant farms and sea monkey colonies. It’s time for treasure-filled caves populated with dragons, imps, trolls, bandits, and a ton of other fanciful, scaly inhabitants. In Dragon Keeper 2, you’ll play parent to a bunch of dragons in order to combat an evil witch. Yeah—a little more exciting than tending to a hermit crab tank.
    In this follow-up to last year’s Dragon Keeper, you play a princess who’s looking for a an malevolent sorceress who’s morphed the princess’s love into a hapless fish. You’ll execute this quest by breeding gem-laying dragons. You use the gems your fire-breathers produce to unlock information about the witch’s whereabouts.
    The basic premise, and much of the jewel-scooping gameplay, is identical to the original game. It’s a time management strategy game that requires you handling several creatures with different abilities, much like the classic, Insaniquarium. You start out with your dragons (which you only begin with one of), which must be fed in order to poop out colourful precious stones you’ll use to make sellable jewellery. As you earn more money, you can buy peripheral critters, such as imps that clear land and help to raise your cave’s population, by allowing you to add more dragons. Other creatures you can buy with your earnings are trolls that can beat up jewel-plundering thieves.
    The fast-paced strategy was carried over from the original game, as well as the rest of the best of Dragon Keeper: beautiful graphics, for one. The developers have also added some pluses, like a much more advanced tutorial, as well as Survival and Endless modes. (They’re unlocked once you’ve made progress in the main Story mode.) There are still lots of upgrades and items that are staggered throughout the game at a good pace.

    I wish the sequel could have improved upon a few things from the original, though. I still would like to see many dragon breeds crammed in your cave, as opposed to the usual three. It also would be cool to play more than one cave at once, giving the player more opportunity to think holistically and problem solve. Juggling several caves and bouncing between them would feel even crazier and more manic, in a good way.
    If you liked the first Dragon Keeper, chances are you’ll like this one too. It’s a cute, colorful, yet serious challenge that forces you to take serious care of your magical creatures. New characters, new spells, new graphics, and new modes of gameplay gives both newcomers and veterans to the Dragon Keeper series incentive to pick up Dragon Keeper 2. If only sea monkeys were as engaging….

    Features:

    * Breed, feed, and take care of baby dragons to earn their help
    * Collect gems and money to forge into powerful magical jewelry
    * Hire odd characters for help and expand the caves with new dragons
    * Defend against thieves and earn wonderful rewards

    Conclusion:

    Dragon Keeper 2 is very similar to the original Dragon Keeper, with some additional elements added. It’s also similar to the Farm Frenzy game we got a few months ago, but with a different theme. You could easily have called it Farm Frenzy: Dragon Keeper. :) I’ve said many times before that Time Management games are one of the least liked genres for me, but as with the Farm Frenzy games, I actually enjoyed playing this one. I never felt stressed for time, and enjoyed progressing, and winning achievements, leveling up, earning new items such as bottles and combs, new dragons, helpers etc. It would have been nice to see more dragons. There’s only three.
    I tend to turn music off when i’m playing games, but the music isn’t overly annoying. The game play music fits with the theme, so have scored this reasonably. There’s no way to change the music unless you are a coder and have the appropriate editing software. think this game was made with unity???

    I’d give this game the same score as Dragon Keeper for entertainment and family fun factor. I’m sure the young ‘uns will love the cute dragons, though parents will need to help when the levels get more complex. :)

    Scoring

    Gameplay – 8
    Graphics – 9
    Audio – 6.5
    Re-playability – 7
    Originality – 7

    Total = 37.5 out of 50 which is equivalent to 7.5 out of 10

    Problems:

    If you are posting late in the day I would also suggest posting in the main giveaway forums in the game discussion section. If you’ve installed the game but it won’t work for some reason, it should still be registered, so someone may be able to help at another time. Unfortunately if your problem is actually installing it then once the giveaway period is over there’s nothing that can be done until the game is given away again (though that isn’t guaranteed. It’s always worth checking out the free games sites as sometimes the games we get here are also available for free from them as is Dragon Keeper 2 from Jenkat Games.

    If you have any problems installing or getting to work today’s game please go HERE for help.

      ========================================================

    A Request for help:

    Developers rely on good feedback to improve their games. If you download this game please take some time once you’ve played it a while to leave some constructive feedback either positive or negative. The more constructive feedback we get, the more likely developers are going to give more games away. The giveaway site already has a very good standing with the search engines. Developers want their products out there on the WWW, this site has the potential to do that. The game giveaway project gives away on average between 9 to 17 thousand downloads for each game depending upon what genre and how obscure the game is. That’s a lot of homes these games are being downloaded into and a lot of ‘potential’ cash that’s being lost by the developers. If we get better games because of better feedback, the community are likely to continue to benefit from the generosity of the developers. Satisfied community members are then more likely to visit the home sites of those developers and purchase games that they may not have bothered with before they discovered the developer via the game giveaway site, thus giving the developers more incentives to give away even more decent games.

    Please leave some feedback once you’ve checked the game out. It can be positive or negative, but please explain what your reasons were for the feedback you post. You could also leave suggestions for improving the game, for example, this game could do with more block types for the levels editor, add more power-ups, describing the ones you think would be suitable, add some mini games (which seem all the rage in some arcade games now) or enable the user to be able to change the in game music easily.

    Thank you in advance to all those who take the time to post a constructive comment.

    Regards

  2. Cool, they gave out the first a few weeks ago, now part two. Nice game, fun graphics :)
    Playrix…always good quality. Of course not every one likes time management games and this one can get frantic :)

    …………………………Moderator Comment………………………..

    Thanks for your feedback

  3. Looks like a fun game if your into time manangement games which I’m not. To bad it’s not a match 3 with a side of hidden objects & some puzzle solving along the way for bonus scores. That I would have downloaded for sure!
    But as I said looks like a great game so enjoy you time management types! Thanks anyway for another great offer! Can’t win them all…
