Dragon's Lair NES redemption?
For anyone unfortunately enough to have played the Nintendo NES version of Dragon's Lair, here is a chance to finally put those demons to rest.
Dragon's Castle is a fan made re-imagining of the infamous 8-bit home conversion. The NES game has to be one of the worst ports of an arcade game ever created. Granted, they were never going to replicate the amazing Don Bluth animations of the coin-op original. But did they have to come up with something so downright evil as the sidescrolling nightmare that gamers were subjected to? I can only assume the programmers were minions of the dark lord, as I cannot fathom any other reason as to why they would release such a badly designed, hideously difficult game onto the gaming public. I don't think anyone even managed to get past the second screen, making it a real kick in the teeth for poor kids who bought it back in the early 1990's. The Angry Video Game Nerd did an excellent video on it, so click here to view it and see the nightmare for yourself.
