This game is a type of 'match-three' puzzle game. You have a grid of different colored orbs and when you line three (or more) up in a row either vertically or horizontally they disappear. Sounds simple right? Well it is and it isn't due to the 'Dragons' part of the games title. Those orbs actually direct which of your dragons (or Mario characters) attack and deal damage to the enemy team, as in you match up red orbs and your fire damage types will attack. Also when you drag the orb across the grid it moves the other orbs in it's path, allowing savvy players to line up multiple matches to build up devastating combos in one move. You can take your time and study the board to figure out your movement, but once you start moving that orb you'd better be quick cause you only have four seconds to finish moving it. Building up combos becomes quite important later on as well when the difficulty of the enemies starts to ramp up, but thankfully the game is good at giving you lots of practice before that difficulty spike... or if you're naturally good at these games you won't even notice a big jump in difficulty.
