The Dark Dragon, number one enemy, has captured Jake’s sweetheart
Rose. Jake is determined to rescue her. To help him on
his journey, Grandpa has given Jake an ancient
dragon artifact: the Dragon Pendant. This
magical pendant will channel Jake’s focus
into powers of dragon’s fire, dragon scales,
and dragon wings. Will Jake be able to
focus on the task at hand, and use his new
abilities to their fullest? Or will he fall flat
and lose Rose?

Objective: Each Dragon must find and fly through as many Goal Rings as they can.
Doing so will mark them as their own. The first Dragon to claim all of the Goal Rings on
the playfield.

them as your own. Fly through special Power Ups to gain Speed Boosts or fire power.

The Dragon Pendant
The Pendant: Playing as the Dragon
Grandpa has given Jake a Dragon Pendant, a special necklace that Jake wears around his
neck. It will help him focus his Dragon Powers against the Dark Dragon’s plot.
When playing as the American Dragon, three new symbols are added to the ring around
the edge of the pendant:
•As Jake, the outer ring is grayed out, and cannot be used. The central icon fills with
power as Jake collects focus points.
Dragon’s Fire
Red, the color of fire. Shoots Dragon’s Fire missiles that take out
enemies instantly or burn away blockades.
•As the American Dragon, the outer ring and central icon are in color, and can be rotated
around the Dragon Pendant to select which dragon power to use.
Dragon Scales
Yellow, the color of Jake’s underbelly scales.
Gives temporary invincibility.
The Pendant: Playing as Jake
When playing as Jake, you collect focus
points to fill up the center area of the
pendant. You collect focus points by
defeating your enemies. When Jake
touches a focus point, the center area of
the pendant fills a little more.
Once the pendant is filled to maximum
it will flash, and you can touch the
dragon icon to transform into Dragon
Mode. You’re ready to attack!
Touch the center of the Dragon
Pendant to Dragon up!
This power drains 1 focus point per 1⁄4 second.
Dragon Wings
Green, the color of Jake’s spines. Lets Jake hover.
To select a dragon power to use, drag it
to the top of the pendant using the touch
screen or the R Button. For example, if you
want Dragon’s Fire, rotate the red icon to
the top of the pendant. You can only use
one dragon power at a time.
To use the selected dragon power, press the
X Button.
Dragon Stones
Huntsman Statues
There are six slots on the Dragon Pendant:
three dragon power icons and three
smaller dragon stone icons. Jake can
collect and store dragon stones in the
pendant. They come in three colors: blue,
purple, and orange.
Throughout the game, be on the lookout for
special Huntsman Statues. These special
Huntsman Statues contain golden coins.
Collect all 10 of the golden coins to get
a special game ending.
Dragon stones can be activated by
touching them on the touchscreen.
When you touch a colored dragon
stone, it spreads a blast of that color
on the screen and any transparent
mystic blocks of that color become
For example, you might find some
transparent blue blocks floating over
some water. To make them solid
so that you can jump from block to
block, touch a blue dragon stone on
your pendant.
Flying Stages
In some of the stages, Jake will take on
other flying foes in full 3D action. In the
flying stages, Jake needs to take out the
propeller trolls, valkyries, and shadow
dragons that are causing chaos over the
In each flying stage, there are floating
rings that Jake can fly through. Rings

New York City
The Docks
Grandpa tells Jake that trolls are running wild on the
streets ahead! Jake runs through the streets, across
rooftops, through the skies of New York, and finally into
Central Park where he’ll come face to face with the evil
Back to School
As Jake crosses into the school yard, past fences and up
the front stairs, students are running around in total fear.
Don’t get run over! The students don’t mean to hurt Jake,
but hey, they’re running for their lives! There are more
trolls here, just like in the last world. Jake needs to make
his way through the school yard and bus depot, the school
building, the locker room, and out onto the football field
to meet the level’s boss.
The Jersey Bridge
At Grandpa’s advice, Jake decides to stretch out his
search and head onto the Jersey Bridge, avoiding cars and
crumbling sections. From there, it’s down into the tunnels,
riding on top of the subway cars, working his way past
more enemies from the Huntsclan. He then goes back into
the skies above the New York bridges, past more propeller
trolls. Finally, it’s into the water treatment plant, where
he’ll encounter satyrs and harpies on his way to another
henchman of the Huntsman: the Millipede Wizard!
Jake has made it down to the docks. Boats pass by,
unloading more and more enemies, including more sirens,
lagoon monsters and even bigger Huntsclan
members. He must make his way
along the docks, jumping from boat
to boat when necessary, then fly
over the ocean past more harpies and
propeller trolls toward the large statue in the harbor.
The Dragon’s Den
All Jake needs to do in this world is make his way
past more huntsmen, statue warriors, shadow
dragons, and who know what else to get to Rose!
