Uno dei primi laser game, uscito nel 1983, che proponeva una tecnica per quei tempi innovativa, ossia grazie agli impulsi dati dal giocatore tramite joystick e un pulsante, il lettore andava a leggere gli spezzoni di filmato corrispondenti alle scelte fatte in-game. Oggi, molto spesso li chiamiamo 'quick time events', testimonianza del fatto che "Game Designer" del giorno d'oggi non hanno inventato chissà cosa nel proporre "videogiochi" basati sulla pressione in sequenza ed entro un certo lasso di tempo di pochi tasti.

Grafica da cartoon ottima, considerando che il gioco ha ben 31 anni, e bestemmie ad ogni errore commesso; servono tempismo e riflessi degni di nota, oltre che tanta attenzione. Comunque, nonostante la durata esigua (potreste finirlo anche in meno di 30 minuti) è consigliato a tutti coloro che apprezzano produzioni particolari e che come questa, in un modo o nell'altro, grazie alla gran semplicità di fondo e un gameplay tutt'altro che articolato e profondo, hanno fatto la storia del Videogioco.

Dragon's Lair is a high definition port of a 1980s Arcade game featuring a brave knight on a journey to save his princess.

I was a little tricked by this game, but maybe it was my fault. When I purchased Dragon's Lair, I thought it was HD remake, which perhaps provided extended gameplay or extra content, a fully fleshed out experience, based on the old 1980s Arcade game; but this is not the case, it is as advertised: the 1980s Arcade game.

So, I just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone was wondering. Now, to the game. It's kind of fun, though a little repetative. The game design is essentially based around memorising a path to the princess, and getting timings just right (press Left/Right/Up/Down at precise moments or you die and restart at a checkpoint). This, back in the 80s, I'm sure was a genius idea for getting tonnes of quarters out of kids playing the Arcade machine, but as a game I don't need to plug money in to continue, it's just a little droll.

I would recommend this game if you're looking for nostalgia. Maybe you played the game back in the day and never saw the end of it, or you were a Dragon's Lair champion and wanna relive your glory, you'll love it. But, if you're looking for a challenging and engaging title, with a story and interesting/creative gameplay, I would not recommend it.

I remember playing Dragon's Lair at my local arcade in the 80's, it was such an amazing idea that you could actually control a cartoon. Dirk suffered many deaths by my young hands and I never saved Princess Daphne.

Fast forward 30 years and what do my eyes behold? Dragon's Lair, instant purchase on Steam! After several mistakes, slow reactions, and memorization of key action sequences I can finally say that I defeated Singe and rescued the princess! Although tame for todays standards, I would have found the Daphne scenes quite risque as a child.

This is definately worth the small price tag, especially to those who have fond memories of plugging away many quarters at the arcade back in the day. The story is enjoyable and the game holds up well considering it's age.

I really enjoyed this game. I have been a fan of Dragon's Lair since I saw the TV series and the animation in this game is done by the legendary Don Bluth, it doesn't have his story to it, which makes sense considering such a old game it would be hard to put anything as deep and thoughtful as, say, Secret of Nihm.

The gameplay is basically from the birth of QTEs, but even if you failed the animation was always nice to see and it's sometimes quite comical how Dirk can die from a simple trip to being eaten alive by something. If you're a fan you'll have a lot of fun with this, however I can't really say much to be honest as i've already described what the entire gameplay is. If you're searching for something with a real deep and epic story I would give this a miss, but if you are interested in in QTE gameplay with wonderful art which is enjoyable, even in it's frustraition then I suggest you pick this up.
