Animation is okay, I never really liked Don Bluth's style but I do enjoy his fluidity. The gameplay isn't much and it can be really confusing what to do. There are also mirrored levels, trying to look new but just really cheap and very distracting. It almost takes you out of the adventure. That and the princess near the end is way too perky for situation she's in. I'd imagine she wouldn't be smiling while being trapped. Maybe she's happy to see Dirk, but not as relaxed as she is. And no, I meant no sexual innuendo by that, even though she was based on Playboy models. But this game did have a great impact on the gaming community and should be treasured for what it stands, just not what is it
Don Bluth's superb animated laserdisc game, where you must get a knight through all the rooms of a castle, slay the dragon and rescue the princess. As you watch the movie, you must move your controller in the correct direction or press the sword-button to attack. If make the wrong move, or don't respond at the correct time, a gruesome cartoon death awaits your knight. The rooms have different traps and monsters to overcome. It's superb animation with great creativity. It's a lot of fun to watch too.
