It's finally happened: Sega has combined the monster-fusing gameplay of Puzzle & Dragons with a Chuck E. Cheese coin-pushing machine in Dragon Coins, a free-to-play mobile game making its debut in North America and Europe today.
In Dragon Coins, players assemble and level-up a party of monsters that can be used to exploit enemy elemental weaknesses in battle. Combat unfolds during a coin-dozer minigame -- as you chain combos by dropping coins off the edge of the playfield, you'll deal damage to enemy characters, and will eventually unlock more monsters for your menagerie.
Dragon Coins is available now in the iTunes App Store, and is due to launch for Android devices via Google Play later tonight.
Arcade Coin-dozer Action Meets Monster Collecting in New RPG Adventure
London, 8th May, 2014 – SEGA Networks, Inc. today announced the global launch of Dragon Coins for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. Dragon Coins combines the deep elements of RPG battle and party management systems with the quick, pick-up-and-play appeal of arcade coin-dozer fun.
In Dragon Coins, players must master the drop by placing coins on the moving platform to charge up monsters for attacks. With deft timing and skillful positioning, powerful combos can be executed while collecting hundreds of unique monsters to build an impressive team. Monsters can be swapped out to take advantage of special powers or exploit an enemy's elemental weaknesses, and players can even lend and borrow monsters with friends to conquer tougher challenges. With this deep but accessible system, players can evolve and fuse monsters with coins won in battle, leveling-up stats and special powers. Dragon Coins features tons of missions and hundreds of collectible monsters. Plus, regular boss raid events provide enough content to keep players battling for ages.
"Full of personality and flair, Dragon Coins continues our mission to bring diverse, high-quality titles to the mobile space," said Senior Vice President of SEGA Networks Chris Olson. "Players will come for the fun coin-dozer gameplay, but stay for the in-depth RPG system in this quirky and deceptively-deep title."
Dragon Coins is now available on the App Store and Google Play for free.
