You think you have it tough? Try living next door to a dragon.

You must defend your king’s castle against a dragon attack. Unfortunately, all you have for weapons are arrows. Fortunately, some of the arrows come with special powers like poison or the ability to make the target dizzy.

When you take out a dragon, use your cash reward to make repairs to the stone walls or upgrade your arrows. Shoot arrows by flinging your finger over the screen.
