Okay, i am NOT a code guy and NOT creating this game. Watching all you guys post about homebrews and whatnot i thought to myself "I wonder what an Intelly Homebrew of Dragon's Lair might look like"

 

So i will just leave this here :-)

 

I know the Intellivision is incapable of giving the arcade proper justice but still love to see and play a version of it if its even possible. Heck, Treasure Of Tarmin was the 1st of its kind (i think) so anything's possible....right?

 

Okay day dream over and back to work....

Not sure what RetroSpecs is or means.

 

I was just thinking of a blocky version of the game. It would indeed be a poor mans version but still probably fun.

Too many colours, too many pixels. (The RetroSpec pixies, that is.)

Guessing it would play like and look more blocky than the Adam version. Pass. :lol:

Besides, there's a million ways to play Dragon's Lair today. A port for Intellivision would just make that a million and one. lol

Yeah, really. The appeal of the original was the cartoon graphics (certainly it was not the lame "quicktime-event" action).

It reminds me of Marble Madness, another very popular arcade game which relied on graphics and great physics simulations and controls. When ported to 8-bit micros, it seems like a weird isometric version of Pac-Man, and it was mostly awkward to play.

Always thought these were pretty neat... Play pixel perfect versions of the games on your regular DVD player:

I've never seen one in the wild or at Gamestop. It's on my list, though. There's one in Lichfield, IL. I'm driving through there in a couple weeks...

It reminds me of Marble Madness...

 

Off topic, but I always preferred Marble Blast to Marble Madness.

Plays amazing on the wii. No loading between levels, really the most perfect version I have played.

I don't know about the home versions but the arcade Dragons Lair was not much of a video game. It was an interactive cartoon with almost no gameplay. It came with alot of hype that quickly disappeared and we went back to playing Missile Command and Defender.

$35 for a used, beat up example? No thanks. For $30, you can get this:

Can even skip the game part and just watch the entire thing play out like a movie.

You need to sneak up on them, they're very easily frightened.

The DVD copy really is not the best way to play the game. The moves and timings are not right.

 

However, if you get that DVD set with Dragon's Lair 1 and 2 and Space Ace, you can rip the video to use with the Daphne emulator. That gives a much more faithful result.

 

There was a remastered HD blu ray edition which looks great. But again the gameplay isn't faithful.

I have it. I really like it. A great port of DL, plus the other games are available too (I haven't tried them yet).
