Dragon's Lair is a 1983 arcade game developed and designed by Don Bluth and it was published by Cinematronics and it was released for the arcades. This page will cover the 2001 Game Boy Color version developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Capcom.

Why It Sucks

  1. Extremely low framerate.
  2. There's mostly no music.
  3. Only Princess Daphne had digitized speech.
  4. Poor sound effects.
  5. It's a bland and digitized copy of the original FMV animation.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The game is at least faithful to the original game's gameplay style, unlike Dragon's Lair for the NES.
  2. Most of the original FMV animation managed to be compressed to the Game Boy Color which was a console limited in hardware, which was never designed for this type of game.

Reception

The game received a 2.83 rating on GameFAQs.com.
