Dragon's Lair HD reviews and comments

Remember that I used to play endlessly in the Arcadehal. Unfortunately, this version only focuses on the illuminated arrows. Because of This You miss a lot of the great animation atmosphere that the game offers. The illuminated arrows give you the clue when you need to perform a certain action. Unfortunately the moment when you have to press the arrow is not consistent. One time you have to press immediately and this is not the next moment. All in all nice memories but it doesn't get to the original in the Arcadehal. Hopefully the timing of the arrows will improve in the future.

I Am of the older generation grown up in bread and games room and I must say that this version of Dragon's Lair x iPad has left me gaping! Just magnificent x The nostalgic laser games worshipers like me! The game is loyal to the original and can be played in game room mode that brings you literally child with the rooms at random or in homemade mode where through the pre-ordered rooms you can trace the whole story in a linear way. Fantastic Graphics and everything cared for in the smallest detail.. Truly a MUST x iPad!!! Now I look forward to Dragon's Lair 2 time Warp and Space Ace and maybe other laser games and I hope in future compatibility with Icade that will allow us to use the joistic and the physical keys.. * For the developers: I wait now Time Warp and Space Ace and the ION Icade compatibility to play with the joistic and not with the touch!!! Please I'll support you forever!!!!!

I played Dragon ' Lair in the years 80 as a kid in the arcade, and even now it still remains a wonderful game that has stood the test of time. For Those who do not know the game, Dragon's Lair consists of a nice collection of short animation cartoons where at a precise moment you give a command to the protagonist to do a certain act in a situation. This listens very precisely because before you know it you lose a life. Just Count that this was a money devourer in the arcade because it is simply super difficult. The movies are all random, so you never know in what situation you get. Sometimes the movie is mirrored to make it even more difficult. Through The options you can also set the hints so that you know when you need to respond at any time, but yes.. The truck is of course to get out of there. So play the game in Arcade mode and turn this option off, then play the game as it should. The Common thread is that you, Knight Dirk, must see the beautiful Daphne in a kind of haunted castle. Very original game of the ex-Disney animator Don Bluth and not for nothing for years a real classic! Also take a Look at the Sciene fiction successor ' Space Ace '.
