Loved this game then (1983), love this game now. This is the game that turned me from a pinball wizard into a RPG/ video game junkie. I even own the PC release they made way back before Steam even existed. Simple enough game, unfortunately no joystick control. A joystick would make this game easier in my opinion. Controls are right, left, up, down, and space bar for sword (which was a button on the arcade console). Seems easy, but it is not. The gamer has to pay attention to the cues on when and in which direction to move then do so on time. From years of playing here is a hint: the scenes play first either to the right or left then in the opposite direction later in the game. It can seem tedious I suppose, but I guess that is half the fun. Really can you go the distance, all the way to the dragon's lair without losing track of which side (right or left) one played or losing all your lives. Also if I remember correctly the Black Knight and the Lizard King are basically bosses somewhere about a third and three fourths of the way through the game. For me this is an absolutely must own game and I wish I had found it sooner on Steam.

Best features for me in this game: is instant replay from where one left off without inserting more quarters and a full playthrough without interaction (like watching a movie).

This game is one big QTE marathon with a simple yet charming story.
At first the animation style was strangely familiar to me until I realized that Don Bluth was the man behind this.

(Insert Titan A.E. and Land Before Time childhood nostalgiagasms here.)

The gameplay itself can get a bit annoying occasionally when it wants you to react with the reflexes of a fly, so you better learn the inputs of the electric knight room segment and the final boss "fight" if you want to spare yourself a handful of restarts, but aside that I can't say anything negative about it.

If you're a gamer of history or just a general appreciator of QTEs, you should totally give it a go.

(10 euros are a bit much for it though, imho, as the game does not have that much of a replay value and even during ONE playthrough the player gets to go through mirrored versions of level segments.)

Back in '83 when this game first came out, we had a single arcade in our small city (that's not so small now) that had Dragon's Lair. Many of us fell in love with the game and a new challenge was present in our community arcade... to beat the dragon and save the princess. I dumped way too many quarter's into this game and came back late from lunch on more than one occassion. The owner of the arcade had installed a monitor above the machine so others could watch while you played. In time I had developed quite a few followers that I think figured I was most likely to complete the game. Some would even let me play ahead of them even though they had their quarters lined up. A couple of times other people even paid for me to play the game. One afternoon, it finally happened. Amidst a small crowd of people surrounding the machine I reached the Dragon's Lair. Of course I didn't beat it the first time, but I played again and much to the enjoyment of the crowd, I defeated the dragon and we all saw the end of the game. I was very proud to have been the first person in our city to have defeated the game.

The next challenge of course was to defeat the game without dying. This challenge did not take very long at all.

Of course, seeing the game on Steam meant I must purchase it for nostalgia's sake. Playing through it was not too difficult and for the most part I had no problem with the control response (I was surprised how many moves I remembered from all those years ago). I actually found the graphics to be very decent for this version.

Their are two versions of the game, Arcade and Home. I've played the Arcade version but have not tried the Home version uet. There are also two difficulty settings; Easy and Hard. I think on Hard the timing of your moves just has to be more precise and easy is a little more forgiving on pressing keys at the wrong time. You can also turn the moves indicators on or off (move indicators are not the flashes that are built into the animation but arrows and a sword icon that appear when it is time to press a button), You can also turn the move accepted sound indicator on or off. So if you really want a challenge, put it on Hard, turn the move indicators off and turn the move accepted sound off and try and complete the game without dying. :)

The game is all QTE (but it was the only way we were ever going to play an animated game 30 years ago.

There is also a mode where you can just watch the game all the way through just like watching a Saturday morning cartoon.

If you're a fan of cartoons or nostalgic for the game than I would say it is definitely worth the purchase. I know it was for me.

The control in this game are very tight, and has no glitches at all. Getting though some of the obstacles do actually require a little bit of common sense. It feels good to play arcade games in your very own home.
