A Quick Look at Dragon: Marked for Death
Take on quests, earn rewards, and grow your character in this 2D side-scrolling action RPG. Play as one of four different characters who have inherited the Astral Dragon’s power to rescue Amica, the priestess of their clan, and get revenge on those who kidnapped her.
4 different elements of 2D action all in one game!
Each of the 4 playable characters has a completely different style of play, adding loads of gameplay variety!
Find synergies with characters in multiplayer!
By making the best of characters’ strengths and covering for each others’ weaknesses, you’ll be in prime position to complete quests in multiplayer.
By working together, you may even be able to unleash the team combo, “Dragon Sphere”, on bosses!
Level up and customize your characters!
EXP gained from quests will level up your characters, granting ability points you can use to customize character builds that are perfectly suited to your playstyle.
As your stats increase, you’ll be able to equip new weapons and armor.
