The ambitious sequel to the innovative arcade game by Don Bluth and his team. The squeaky eye-candy princess Daphne has been kidnapped by the evil Mordroc, who apparently wants to marry her for some unknown reason. While the entire first game took place in the castle, in this one, you travel through 6 different timelines by using a unique flying time machine.
Another change is this game plays more like an interactive movie; inputing the correct commands to progress through the level as it goes. I am not entirely sure what the difficulty was on the first game, but this one is pretty difficult, especially when you turn off the move guides which serve as the game's training wheels. Then you have to solely rely on the yellow flashes to figure out what direction to go or when to use your sword. To make matters worse, except in the first level, if you mess up, you will restart to the beginning of the level. So you'll need good memorization skills in order to succeed, especially when turning off the move guide to get two achievements.
There are also treasures hidden in each level, which flash yellow when you're nearby. Input the correct direction to obtain the item. You have to collect all the treasures before reaching the final level or else the game will make you restart at the level(s) where you missed them. So overall, this game is a big step-up from the first one; the animation is improved in glorious Don Bluth style, the levels are distinctive to each other, and an increase in difficulty. If you played Dragon's Lair or any laser disc arcade game before, or you are a fan of Don Bluth movies (like me), or you just want a challange, I highly recommend this game.
