Just finished this. It was longer than I expected, which I liked. The dragon eggs part was the hardest, but info on this site helped me clear that. I didn't do the "raise the dragon" one much, but give it a try if you like having your character walk much faster afterward (a glitch, but I liked it). There was a good balance of fights being hard enough to challenge, without getting killed repeatedly, except a few bosses. Getting more coins was relatively easy, as was leveling up. I would have really liked having a walkthrough at times, but was unable to find one anywhere. The one I found included some decent tips and info, but for the game overall, not that far into it. I dislike video walkthroughs, so didn't even look for those. Detailed story plot.
Try it out.
Tip - toward the end, on the island, touch the statue in the glen to reload your magic points. Otherwise, it's hard to find ways to refresh those. I would auto-fight (charge), level up, go back to the statue, and continue with the game.
