Coin-Op : Arcade : Dragon's Lair (1983, Cinematronics)

General Information


You play Dirk the Daring, an adventurous knight who must save Daphne from the clutches of Singe, the Evil Dragon. A Laser Disc game from Rick Dyer and Don Bluth, Dragon's Lair required the player to direct Dirk through various obstacles of the Singe's castle.

Coin-Op Details

Dragon's Lair was the most successful Laser Disc game, and one of the most collectible games today. During its initial release, it attracted so much attention that many arcades installed a T.V. on top of the game so that on-lookers could see Dirk in action. And although you were given 5 lives for 50 cents, most new plays would finish their game very quickly.

You control Dirk with a 4-way joystick and a sword button.
