Dragon’s Lair, Arcade

Dragon’s Lair is one of those old arcade games that has developed a legendary status, even though there isn’t actually much of a game there. And what there is is incredibly difficult.

Dragon’s Lair is an on-rails reaction game – an interactive movie, basically, played to the amazing audio and visuals of an animated film – specifically: Don Bluth‘s animation of Dirk The Daring on a quest to rescue Princess Daphne from the clutches of a dragon and his evil forces.

Amazingly, the game has been re-mastered in high definition, and here are a few grabs from that newer HD version.
