Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

History:
Since its introduction in 1983 as the world's first full-animation laser disc video game, Dragon's Lair has become one of the most successful coin-op games of all time. The legendary adventure, one of only three games on display at the Smithsonian Institution (the other two are Pac Man and Pong), has been played by over 320 million people worldwide. Over the ensuing years, 2D versions of the game have been released, building a dedicated fan base estimated at a quarter billion worldwide.

Dragon's Lair 3D is an entirely new, built-from-the-ground-up, three-dimensional version of this 1980's coin-op phenomenon. While it stays true to the design and storyline of the arcade game, it offers a 3D experience unlike anything else Dragon's Lair fans have played before. Rick Dyer, Christopher Stone, and Don Bluth and Gary Goldman - the original Dragon's Lair game designer, composer and animators, respectively - are active members of the Dragon's Lair 3D development team.

Game Description:
Princess Daphne has been kidnapped by the evil dragon Singe and hidden in a medieval castle owned by Mordroc, a powerful and malevolent wizard. To save her, players take on the persona of Dirk the Daring, a goofy but courageous knight. As he advances through the castle with the help of a magical amulet, Dirk must overcome a slew of challenges, from jumping over flaming pits and climbing ropes to flying across chasms and battling swarms of the wizard's minions.

Gamers must use cat-quick reflexes, cunning and resourcefulness to solve puzzles, defeat a variety of enemies, and fight their way through the castle to find Daphne and save the kingdom from Mordroc's clutches.

Game Elements:

  • True control over Dirk, who alone has more than 150 animation sequences
  • 43 areas within the castle to explore - for the first time, in 3D
  • More than 250 rooms to explore, many of them brand new
  • Close to 40 different characters, from Cyclops Worms and the Grim Reaper to the Fire Goon Warriors
  • Over a dozen new characters, including the Lightning Drake
  • Realistic and amazingly fluid animation with a unique animated cel look
  • Power-ups, hidden secrets and special unlocks
  • Brand-new intro and ending movies, evoking the look of the original arcade game, hand animated by Don Bluth
  • 60 original music scores
  • A brand-new Dragon's Lair theme song, accompanied by a music video
  • Dolby Surround Sound (Prologic)
