Dragon City is an iOS game from Spanish developer Social Point, and is available now as a free download from the App Store with additional in-app purchases. By signing into the game with Facebook, players may pick up where they left off and sync progress between the mobile and social network versions of the game.

Dragon City is a game in which players construct habitats and then populate them with dragons. These dragons can then be bred together to create other types of dragon, or used to battle other players. The eventual aim of the game is to collect all of the available dragons in the game, of which there are well over 150.
Dragon City has two main social mechanics — visiting and helping friends, and player vs player combat. Visiting and helping friends is exactly the same as in other games of this type — players have a small stock of energy with which they can click on their friends' dragon habitats to "help" (though it’s not clear exactly how they’re "helping" in thematic terms) and may also send them gifts. PvP, meanwhile, unfolds through the game's "Combat World" mechanic. Previously, this was limited to players of level 10 or higher only, but this restriction has been removed, allowing all players to battle against one another assuming they have some dragons on hand.
The rest of Dragon City is very similar to its original Facebook incarnation. Play is still throttled through the game’s soft currency system rather than an energy mechanic, and item prices do not appear to have been adjusted to make the game less "grindy" for free players.
