You have to destroy all stones in a level like in a classic brick breaker game. In Dragon Skills, though, the ball has a tail which gets longer and longer. And crossing the tail with the ball will trigger rewards for the player.
In each level, the player aims for the ultimate high score. To achieve the highest score, the use of dragon skills will be necessary. There are two different types of skills:
Furthermore Dragon skills can be upgraded by collecting emeralds to make them more powerful.
The game also rewards skilled players with 5 speed levels, the ball will get faster and each single stone will score more points.
Dragon Skills is a typical arcade game which is easy to play but hard to master.

Dragon Skills is far from being the greatest brick break title available. It does not feel anywhere near as refined as a modern kingpin such as Peggle, and it's not half as addictive, either. The optimum level of control responsiveness one would expect from a game like this is also not quite present. In saying this, if you are craving an experience on Wii U that falls under this classic genre, Dragon Skills provides a reasonable experience.
