Issues make it frustrating
I’ve noticed that the app can hang if you attempt to resume a game after exiting completely out and coming back in.
There is a particular scenario I ran into after continuing a game in the falling platform scene. There are 9 chances to jump off the platform. I played the scene correctly hitting all 9 times and still died. Maybe I need to find a walk through, but it appeared to me to be a bug.
I loved this game and still do, but it needs to be a tad more forgiving in easy mode. I think my screen isn’t calibrated just so or my skin is to dry to register taps reliably..
A not so good port of the original game.
Dragon’s Lair was a arcade game that used revolutionaly technology by using massive discs to output video. It was the grandfather of quick-time events. The game received a sequel and spin-off known as Space Ace, both didn’t do so well due to the Video Game Crash of 1983. The original game got so successful that it recieved many ports, most infamously, the NES version. As technology evolved, we got the console versions, the Steam version, and this version.
The iOS version is not very good. Even though the entire game plays exactly like the original, it seems that the window of when to hit the correct button is offset from the video, resulting in cheap deaths. It would be cool if there was the ability to play the infamous drawbridge scene, but that most likely will not happen since this game hasn’t been updated in years.
If you’re looking for a good port of the original Dragon’s Lair, this is definitely not one of them. I would suggest playing the console versions or the Steam version of the game.
See this before buying!!!
This game is Only for people who have a fast reaction time so if your slow don't buy this, but if you are going to not buy this please buy this because it's fun for your friends and yourself because it's so action-packed because every room is randomized and the Amazing art is so nice if the game was pixelized you wouldn't feel a lot when the guy dies but the artwork makes is feel so horrible when the guy dies but some of the death scenes are just recycled from other scenes ( this was probably just for space and money and time ) so it's worth 5.00 $ on iPhone so I would buy it and I did and it was made it the 80’s for arcades so it's a little fuzzy but I don't mind and you can watch the entire game and see all of the death scenes and what you were supposed to do
