ABOUT THIS GAME
Kill or be killed. Experience the perils of adventure with your ferocious sidekick in this brand-new smartphone RPG!
The stage of DRAKERIDER is set in Igraine, a world on the brink of destruction due to the repeated attacks of the Dread. Aran Lawson, once an ordinary tracker, now finds himself as a dragalier—and mankind's final hope. This is the story of our hero and his dragon companion, Eckhardt. The game lets you take the reins with a battle system like no other. Instead of entering commands, control the chains to execute your strategy. Easing off the reins will allow Eckhardt the freedom to unleash powerful attacks. Too much leeway, however, will trigger his primal instincts, endangering Aran. Led by Akifumi Kaneko, the game is developed by WITCHCRAFT Inc., famous for their work on various anime and other RPGs. This title maintains the high quality and integrity for which they are known.
There are five chapters in total, the first of which may be enjoyed free of charge, so why not delve into an original and finely crafted RPG adventure?

GAME SYSTEM
A tale told over five chapters: The fate of Igraine is related over five chapters. The first chapter is free, and the rest can be purchased individually, or all at once for a special price.
The battle is in your hands: Tighten or loosen your grip on the reins by sliding the chains at the bottom of the screen. The gauge at the top of the screen represents its tension. Ease off to unleash powerful attacks and abilities, but give your dragon too much freedom and you will lose control. If you're not quick to pull back the reins, he will turn against you.
Develop your dragon's abilities: Claim victory in battle to earn CP, which you can use to learn abilities and powerful attacks. Unlocking some abilities will close your path to others, so plan carefully and customize your dragon to suit your needs.
The best graphics a smartphone can offer: The advanced graphics used for character movement and facial animations in cut scenes add depth to an already dynamic and compelling story.
Valet: A strange little creature called a valet will accompany you as you progress through the game. Send him on a treasure hunt and he just might return with some invaluable goods!
