Be a dragon! Lay waste to your foes with your claws, bite, and fire breath! Gather gold and bring it back to your lair to grow in power! Bask in the adoration of your kobold followers! (Also you're a circle for some reason. This is Dragondot 3, you should be used to that by now.)

An action-adventure game full of secrets to find and new abilities to gain, drawing inspiration from the Legend of Zelda series among others. Map exploration, skills gained, and hoard stockpiled are all saved persistently, so you can continue your adventure across multiple sessions. Featuring over twenty different types of creatures to encounter, over twenty different skills to acquire (some with multiple upgrade levels), over a hundred map screens to explore (not even counting the dungeons, tunnels, and secret caves)! It's the deepest Dragondot adventure to date, all packed into a single cozy little PICO-8 cartridge.

There is a glitch, if you are standing on the purple tile in the bottom right corner of the map, then open the gravestone, you become softlocked and cannot move.

thanks for the report!

This game is cute.

I found another kobold somewhere, is there a way to bring him back to the hoard?

The kobolds out in the wilderness cannot be brought to your lair, but they will heal you and provide tribute if you have the appropriate abilities unlocked.

Is there a way to win?  As far as I can tell, I seem to have gotten everything, but I can't figure out what to do next.  (Also, the only way I could get to the giant is by damage boosting; is there some ability I'm missing somehow?)

There's no explicit victory condition; feel free to consider yourself to have won if you've beaten all five bosses (as indicated by the orbs in the lair). Exploring the whole map, amassing a hoard that you're proud of, or just deciding that you're done are all also valid ways to win. 

There's a couple ways to reach the giant; rocket jump + wings + lunging bite is my suggested damage-free approach.
