Dragon City Mobile (iPad/iPhone) Free
Dragon City Mobile...hey that has dragons...it must be the most like Dragonvale, right?
Well yes, and no. In some ways Dragon Island is a little bit like Dragonvale. In other ways, it is not in the least bit similar. Think of it as a little bit Dragonvale, A little bit Final Fantasy and a little bit Pokémon.
The goal is pretty simple. You grow and breed your dragons, build a dragon city Go back, breed tougher and stronger Dragons and do it again.
A little bit RP and a little bit Dragonvale type social game, mixed together for a fun iPad/iPhone touch experience. A new game that sure owes something to the original, but is it's own fun game.

Pocket Creatures (iPhone and iPad) $4.99 - or a "lite" Free version. LInk is to the FREE version, you can always upgrade if you enjoy the game.
Pocket Creatures is more of a "virtual pet" game than a real "breeding game" like Dragonvale. But it is a heap of fun.
You get a cute and cuddly little character that you have to take care of. As you do he will begin to grow, gain powers and even develop a personality. His moods are powerful and can actually affect the area around him. Simply one of the best virtual pet games out there and good enough that even with all the ways it is NOT like Dragonvale there is enough similarity's with raising a cute little critter that many people who love Dragonvale may really love this game.
Pocket Creatures is a well designed game, it is high quality and it has great graphics and makes an awesome game for both the iPad and the iPhone.
Unfortunately Pocket Creatures is NOT as good as a free game. There is a $4.99 charge for this game for the full, unsponsered version. Why not check out the free version, you can always upgrade later, but if you like virtual pets...this cool app is well worth the five spot.
