After watching all those deaths, I'm a little bit disturbed - surely an example of how D&D can be quite frightening without having to go all 'mature content'.
I only ever played Dragon's Lair once. I died right away, and at $1 per pop I wasn't about to waste more money getting good at it.
Same here, Sean. It was a game about knowing when to press the button/move the joystick, with very little hints as to when or what move would save your life. It seemed like a great-looking way to separate kids from their money though.
Yes I must admit I was absolutely giddy the first time I saw this game at an arcade. I must have wasted my weekly allowance for months trying to get to the end- which I never did. But those encounter sets were so cool. I mean, was I the only one who immediately put most of them into my dungeon adventures I drew up?
I remember when Gauntlet came out- another amazing arcade game. The character warning prompts "YOUR ELF NEEDS FOOD BADLY" and "WARRIOR IS ABOUT TO DIE" became common place at my gaming table for years.
Actually we play that on the xbox 360 as a family.My son goes down the first stairway he can find. We all die quickly. Lol
Kilty, is that the original Gauntlet or the 3rd person perspective one that came out a few years ago? Both are wicked fun!
It's the classic arcade version witht the god's eye view.
Best youtube comment:Wonder why he bothered to wear that helmet, it never did shit to protect his head.I guess he was a B/X character. :-)
Pretty much, eh? Lol
I bought the iPhone app. I love it.
Ended up getting this game on CD-ROM a long time ago. Never did figure out how to play the damned thing, or what buttons I was supposed to push to keep Dirk from dying, so that first death with the tentacles on the drawbridge was pretty much my entire experience.
