Dragon's Lair Heading for the iPhone

Illustration for article titled Dragons Lair Heading for the iPhone

The 1983 laserdisc classic Dragon's Lair will follow its cousin Space Ace to the iPhone; Electronic Arts is handling the port. Now you can enjoy Dirk the Daring's inquisitive grunting and Princess Daphne's coquettish cooing in a convenient portable format.

The game will feature an arcade mode, faithful to the content of the original cabinet game, and a home mode that includes extra scenes. Space Ace, the other Don Bluth animated game on the iPhone/iPod Touch, was $4.99. No word on price point here, and delivery is listed as just "December 2009."

Man, I remember this thing cost 50 CENTS. You whippersnappers probably have no idea what balls it took for an arcade game to charge that in 1983. I never beat it in the arcades but I did 15 years later on a port to the Mac - after dying about 80 times. On the first board.

I certainly do, kid ^_^. I remember seeing that at the arcade that used to be at this strip mall that was in Circleville OH back in 1983-84. People were shocked at the 50 cent price point, but were intrigued enough by the animation and sound to at least try it once.

Of course, I got my ass handed to me more times than I care to admit. Right now I use the DVD version coupled with the Daphne emulator and my arcade unit to play it as nature intended ^_<.
