Waste of money
Did I seriously just spend £5 on a game that takes literally 25 minutes to complete? I was a huge fan of the NES Dragon's Lair so I was hoping that at the very least it would bring back some memories, but honest to god I've never been more bored playing a "game" in my whole life. Total waste.

Now play it no prompts, Arcade and Hard. Se ehow you do unless you kust memorized all of the prompts. Optimally you should play it as it was played in the Arcade as just described. It's a shame that the defaults are they are.

This is a joke right? lol

Besides that nes game is probably even shorter than Dragon's Lair Arcade.

You need some context.[classicgaming.gamespy.com]

Dragon's Lair is one of three games currently installed in the Smithsonian Institute (the other two being Pac-Man and Pong).

I must say...wow...I felt that NES dragon's lair is one of the worst games ever made, I felt so ripped off as a kid when I collected cans for $.05 cent refunds for 3 months to buy it.
NES Friday the 13th is better than NES dragon's lair

DL is in the smithsonian because of the historical signifigance. it came out during the video game crash and it wa sunlike anyhting anyone had ever seen before. produced by a bunch of guys that walked out on disney and started their own studio to rival them with movies like secret of nimh.

nobody had ever seen a game like DL and it blew everyone (including me) away...I was too young to even understand how to play it, and i mostly watched others.

that doesn't make it a "good" game.

DL stood way the heck out in an arcade full of 1 color 8px sprites and pinball machines. Here's Big, Beautiful Video, The Future! There is and was no gameplay,though. The same thing could have technically been achieved a hundred years ago by running a few lanes of punch tape alongside a film reel. If you don't press the command that goes with the hole punched in the film, then the death projector loop plays while the main reel rewinds to the last checkpoint punch, life--.

Pong will always win for having the best tutorial ever -

The future that perhaps started all of the Quick Time Events...or what this generation calls First Person Shooters. haha

NES Dragon's Lair ranks up there with E.T. as being one of the worst turds in gaming history.

25 minutes to complete? I tried to finish this game for 10 years and then gave up, lol.

I guess if it really has "prompts," then yeah, I could see doing it. But when you had to learn EVERY step by trial and error (at a cost of 25 cents per wrong guess) and then memorize them ALL and play them back without making a single mistake, it was all but impossible to beat. I never met anyone who actually did it.

Wretched game. And you guys voted it to the top to save a measly $5 on a "cheat" version with on-screen prompts? Ugh.

It's in the Smithsonian because it was revoluntionary for its time and it was a bad game? Zero logic and discombobulated.

Just because it was revolutionary doesn't mean it ages well. I watched the Matrix for the first time in 2011 and was utterly disappointed; it did some cool new things, but others have taken those and made better movies. It's still culturally significant, though.
