Jack Dragon is a retro love letter to 80 and 90s arcade games. Avoid nasties, jump on platforms, glide around the screen, and collect gems! Sounds easy, right?
The Stone of Peace, smashed to bits,
By Lord Moneybags, who got up and split.
Moneybags gains, and everyone suffers,
Everyone fighting, sisters and brothers.
Jack the Dragon,
He's just volunteered.
He'll find all the shards,
That have disappeared.
Collect all the gems,
To keep things on track.
Restore the peace stone,
To bring peace back.
Jack Dragon and the Stone of Peace is a retro arcade game like the old classic ‘Bomb Jack’, with a story about a dragon who overcomes his fear of the dark as he battles against the evil Lord Moneybags.
Collect all the gem pieces to progress to the next level. Avoid touching the nasties. Collect the snowflake power up to freeze enemies in place (you are an ice dragon, after all!).
72 time-limited single-screen levels
A boss battle against Lord Moneybags!
A psychedelic gem tunnel effect at the end of every level!
The Steam page has a free 12 level demo: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2557660/Jack_Dragon_and_the_Stone_of_Peace/
