An Enthralling Story About What It Was Like to Beat the Video Game ‘Dragon’s Lair’ in an Arcade in the 1980s

Technology enthusiast Steven Frank relates what it was like to beat the video game Dragon’s Lair in an arcade back in the 1980s in a recent blog post on his website.

Everyone who has seen Dragon’s Lair before has seen the beginning of the game. Dirk runs across the drawbridge, Dirk dodges the falling blocks, he swings across the fire ropes, and he drops on the falling disc platform. Far fewer have seen the scenes in the middle of the game. Fewer still have ever seen how it ends.
