iPad App Review: Dragon's Lair HD

A 27 year old game on the iPad, must be a good one...and it is!

Dragon's Lair has been completely digitized, none of my consoles still play a game that was made it 1983.. The iPad version also retains the comedy of the game, much like the cartoons. The creatures are bizarre looking, the death scenes are laughable, all while the game’s hero is still extremely clumsy yet hilarious in his efforts.

Immerse yourself in the visually stunning world of hand-drawn animation adapted from the original game and transferred from the original high definition film master. Prepare yourself for an authentic arcade experience and an unforgettable adventure.

Simply press on the direction pad to guide Dirk the Daring in the right direction and use your sword to take on all that the Evil Wizard Mordroc throws at you.

Just like the original!!! Visually stunning, I wish it was a longer game. Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I bought the first version which was not compatible with the iPad and there was no discount or credit on this version. Still, great game a must have if you are a fan of the series!!!

Here's a video demo of the iPhone/iPod version...

Dragon's Lair HD is available for $5 from the App Store
