Dragon's lair Memories.


The 80's were great, and the greatest thing of all was arcade games, one that stood out for me was Dragon's lair. Do you have any memories or this great game?... Then drop a reply retro friend.

Dragon's Lair was also a computer program, that I played a lot, for free! Pre 80s arcade games.

80's arcade fan here. I was a major Xenophobe player. Got very good at it too. Could literally play for an hour on a quarter. I remember thinking to myself "50 cents to play! That's outrageous!" While the later games had better graphics one thing stood out on those old machines. Gameplay. To truly have a hit on your hands you needed something special in the game design. Not just better graphics.

i programmed a game on the first widely known pc on the market (texas instruments pc). i got the code for it from a ti magazine. it was a jousting game. took me 2 days to get all the lines correct. then the game lasted maybe 1 or 2 minutes, and usually croaked after a couple cycles threw its "if then goto" loops. then we had several games on it, like space invaders and asteroids. the restaurant we went to had pacman and later, ms. pacman. remember playing ms. pacman while discussing the eccentricites of hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, so long and thanks for all the fish, etc.
was a whiz at galaga.
