A couple of months back I was lucky enough to review Syd Bolton’s Collecting For Dragon’s Lair & Space Ace. Of the many interesting facts within the pages of Syd’s book was ReadySoft had released a version of Dragon’s Lair III that in truth I had never heard about, not sure how I missed the ad for it in the computer magazines of the day.
Dragon’s Lair III: The Curse of Mordread was available for the PC and Amiga computers back in 1993 and expanded the lore of Dirk the Daring and Daphne by introducing Mordread the sister of the evil Mordroc from Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp.

In this video for the Amiga version of the game you can watch the full playthrough as Dirk arrives home just in time to witness the evil witch Mordread use her black magic to capture both Daphne and the house, shrinking them down into her orb. It includes the Wonderland and Beethoven segments from DL: TW but the awesome part I think is that it also includes a scene that hadn’t been finished in time for the second arcade game, a visit to a pirate ship, plus you have the end level where Dirk must survive the attention of Father Time and Baby New Year in the Time Room!
