Imagine if you could wish on any three things in life? Sounds like a good theme, right? Well, that is exactly what Wish Dragon is trying to do with their new video series. It would have been a lot more fun if Aladdin never got out and explored this idea first. Instead, the animated cartoon came out and was a huge hit, and now the company has brought back another version, called the sequel to Wish Dragon, called the Aladdin Erupture.
Now instead of only one wish, you have to wait for three wishes before you can get rid of the Genie. You also have to find the pot of gold, which will make you wealthy, but you have to go through a lot of hurdles. This is basically the same as the original cartoon, and the producers are doing a pretty good job of recreating the magic of Aladdin, while making it more entertaining for modern audiences. In fact, the animation looks so real, I almost felt like I was actually there. The special effects are also excellent.
For those who haven't seen the animated version, Wish Dragon is a Chinese cartoon about a wish dragon who lives in an alternate dimension. When you cast a wish, it accidentally lands him on a magical land where he has to live with a grasshopper, a frog, and a bunny. He also has a dog, a cat, and other animals. The other animals in the land include a lion, an elephant, a sheep, and a monkey. The good thing is that Aladdin can use his three wishes to unlock special things for his friends to help him on his journey.
As mentioned above, Wish Dragon has some pretty good features. In fact, the first feature I checked was whether it would support Android. The answer was yes, it did, and it looks pretty good on Jellybean (4.2). It also runs on lower memory than the official Sony Ericsson Mobile Phone (SGH-TCDMA), which is really good. Not only does the Wish Dragon app run on Sony Ericsson phones, it also works on other models like the DROID and Nokia E71. So, not only does the Sony Ericsson phone have the ability to support the animation, but it also works with a number of different mobile devices.
However, there is one little problem. Since the wish dragon is pretty large in size, the memory space that the game requires is quite large. That means the game can take up a lot of memory. This is actually the main reason why the game is available for tablets and other smaller screens as well, because it would be very boring to play if the scenery was too large. So, as you can see, this new animation studio has hit two birds with one stone.
Now, you might say "But the graphics are on point, the user interface is perfect, and everything is just perfect". Well, let me tell you, that is what I was hoping for! The interface may not be perfect, but they sure do make it fun to play. Not only do the wishes let you choose the dragon you want to make, but they also let you see all of the different kinds of wishes you can make to change the story. Although I don't know about you, but this wish dragon doesn't sound very happy.
