Apparently, that Japanese anime which even today has millions of fans all around the world can still manage to inspire people,  while some take that inspiration towards cosplay hobby, others are creating smartphone apps (games) thanks to it.

DragonutZ is a Real-Time Fighting RPG (Role-Playing Game) adhering to the original TV-series with a bit of naming and appearance modifications (probably to avoid copyright infringement).

DragonutZ features

The game offers you the ability to finally live your dream and become the “strongest and fastest warrior in the universe”!!! So, in case you were wondering how you can do that, here’s how it goes:

Dragonutz gameplay

Author’s experience

The game appears to have plain graphics and straightforward set of playing rules, making it pretty easy to control and master. Since some battles require you to make an extensive use of long range attacks (energy balls), it seems that the optimal gaming experience would be achieved via a wide screen device, yet, not only.

Aside from that, the game offers a decent challenge, advancing through stages and gaining more powers doesn’t seem to be eroding the fun, at least not when you’re only at the beginning.

Considering the fact that games which looks even much more plain than that (such as Flappy-bird for instance) have gained a lot of success in todays market, it won’t be delusional to expect at least some level of success for DragonutZ too, especially when taking into account the TV-series fan population.

As of current DragonutZ is still in beta, though it felt very stable in my short experience, in case you’re interested in giving it a whirl, here’s a link to its Google-Play page. unfortunately, it’s not available for iPhone users at the moment.
