In Dragon's Lair, you take control of Dirk the Daring in his quest to save Princess Daphne from Singe the dragon. After the release of the 1983 arcade game of the same name, which played like an interactive movie, this game was released on many different platforms with radically different game play. We also have a run of the NES port here.

In this run, the author, tall, awkwardly jumps into action and completes the game in a little more than 9 minutes. He performs many tricks to do this, a notable one being damage boosting which allows him to skip large sections of a few levels. For more information, please see the author's notes.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
