A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

This place is not a place of honor... no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here... nothing valued is here.

What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us. This message is a warning about danger.

In its search for power, humanity dug too deep. Cracking open the earth above an ancient nuclear waste tomb, radiation spread throughout the world, warped by centuries of rotting. Sorcerers and dragons were created by the radiation's twisted power, and soon dragon riders took to the skies and began terrorizing the planet.

You are an errant dragon rider on a quest to find and defeat the legendary Dragon Lord. Time your attacks well, gather new spells, and soar through the skies atop your dragon.

Simple gameplay mechanics, clean presentation. Good job bro!

Thank you so much!:)


Simple and fun! I love it

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it:)


This was fun to play through!

Thank you!:) I think this is the jam game I'm most proud of!


Love it


Thanks for playing, I'm glad you had fun!:)


i had an absolute blast playing this and the amazing music makes it even better, can't believe this was made in 48 hours well done. 

Thank you so much!:) The music is by Mid Air Machine, they're amazing aren't they? Really great at creating atmosphere!

I would love to see this game get local co op in the future

SO HYPE when I played this on stream 

I made it to the dragon lord with an op build and took him out 1st turn.


Amazing game but sadly I got a glitch halfway through where my opponent  got stuck and wouldn't pass the turn. The graphics are ridiculously cool though and the gameplay is very clever!

Haha aw man, I guess that's what happens when you make a game in 48 hours! But I'm glad that you were having a good time before you encountered that bug:)

For some reason when I try to open the mac version it just says

'“Dueling Dragons” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.'

This game looks great and would love to try it so can you please try to fix this. Thank you and have a great day.

Hi there, I'm glad you're interested in playing! On the game's page above the download links I have noted that there is an issue with OSx (which I can't do anything about) that can be fixed with these instructions: https://help.yoyogames.com/hc/en-us/articles/216753558-Mac-app-damaged-when-down...


Thank you very much. I've just started playing and I'm having a lot of fun! All the upgrades are great & unique and the game is getting quite challenging. All in all great game, and thanks for making it I guess.


No problem! Thanks for giving it a play, I'm happy that you're having a good time with it:)


Another slam dunk winner after Gun Rounds! Lovely little gem here 🙌


Thank you so much!:) I'm really glad you enjoyed the game, both of them!


Very simple but very fun! I really like the gameboy style :)

Thank you, glad you had fun!:)

I absolutely LOVE dragons, I didnt try the game yet, but this premise and the animation hooked me up!

Btw imagine if this was a multiplayer "deckbuilding" game, that'd actually be really cool
