I haven't seen the movie How to Train Your Dragon yet, although I've wanted to because I've read so many great things about it. I have, however, played today's GFAOTD, which is based on that movie and free for a limited time!
In TapDragonDrop, the player controls Toothless and Hiccup through more than 40 levels of sheep-saving fun using various dragon-abilities like making loud noises and breathing fire. It's a cool and fun game for kids and adults.
The app does have in-app purchases (or at least has them listed in iTunes) but I played it for a while and didn't see any, so they can be easily avoided.
** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **

If you are experiencing any problems loading TagDragonDrop please power cycle your device. This can be done by pressing and holding the lock button until the shutdown confirmation slider appears on screen, then sliding that. Once your device has powered down you may restart it by pressing the same button.
We are working hard on an update to render this unnecessary, but in the meantime this should allow you to play.
Check the store for new dragons, new levels, and
other beautiful lands to explore!
