Dragon’s Lair Now Available On XBLA!

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST


Working all weekend has definite disadvantages. I’m not talking about being tired and needing to drink frightening amounts of coffee to stay awake during these long shifts…or missing movies on their opening weekend…I’m referring to how I missed the classic arcade title Dragon’s Lair being released for the Xbox Live Arcade on Friday!

  1. I grabbed this on Friday and been playing it a lot this weekend. It’s actually a really good port of the original coin-op arcade hit and worth the 800 Microsoft points.1

  2. VicSage says:

    Awesome! Have you had a chance to play using the Kinect function yet, Commodore Computer Club? I’ll be sticking to the controller but I wondered how the motion sensor might work.

  3. Great! Finally I can play this game without going broke from quarters. I was never good at this one.

  4. @VicSage: I actually don’t own a Kinect for my 360, so I just use the controller.

  5. Retro Justin says:

    I have the Kinect and wanna know how well that actually works with this game. Looks good otherwise.

  6. @Retro Justin: There is a free XLBA Dragon’s Lair trial that you can download to test with your Kinect before you pay for the full version.

  7. This is the game that won’t die! First, I played it again for the first time when they put it on DVD 12 years ago.

    Then, I played it again…on my iPhone.

    It’s like Dirk with unlimited lives.

    Remember playing Dragon’s Lair at the arcade. Remember it being stupid expensive ($1.00 a play) but very cool…

  9. Josh says:

    I think this might actually be the time I break down and buy a copy so I can finally beat it. It really was too expensive to play – $1.00 per play vs $0.25 for everything else. The Kinect functionality is a good idea since what I’ve heard is the gameplay is really just memorizing the various play options and you can add a little challenge to the game. I wish they would release this with Space Ace too.
