We've covered Ankama's Drag'n'Boom [Free] quite a bit in the past based off its real cool trailer. It hit the App Store yesterday, and I just wanted to post about it again in case this gem got lost in all the hustle and bustle of the new iPhone announcements. If this is the first you've heard of Drag'n'Boom, I think the easiest way to describe it is that it's like playing as a dragon inside of a medieval version of The Matrix. Every action you make in the game comes with a slow down bullet time-like effect, and that includes everything from movement to actually firing flames from your mouth.

Take a look at the gameplay video from today's Twitch stream to see what I mean, and just how much fun I was having playing the first 20 minutes or so of the game:

Better yet, the developers are also active on our forums and they've even posted some initial concepts of the game which is some behind the scenes stuff I always enjoy checking out. Overall, I'm really surprised how cool this game is. If you were going to pass over it this week for whatever reason, definitely don't make that mistake.

    I'm not digging the stop-and-aim action, it makes me want to play Tiny Wings.

      You can, that's also a game on the App Store.

      I think this is waaaay better than Tiny Wings! It's more like a normal game and tiny wings is like a demo / trial / uncomplete game.

      I mentioned in another DragnBoom post, you should use swiping motions, both for movement and rapid firing. The tutorial explained on the Slow down time mechanics. It should have been alittle clearer on that. It is extremely intuitive once you get the hang of it.

    My current prototypical Good Mobile Action Game.
    A bit of Skullduggery, a bit of Golf Zero, a bit of charm and style, and a lot of fun.

    This is a great progression from King Tongue. It reminds me of older iOS games in a really positive way. I've been enjoying it so far and the upgrades are all worthwhile. I found myself wanting to get to higher levels to see what the next fireball was going to be.
