iPad App - Designed for iPad

This isn't you old 1991 laserdisc game. Dragon's Lair 2: Time Warp HD, the sequel to Dragon's Lair in full HD, has been released for the iPad.

Now you can once again play as the intrepid Dirk the Daring as he fights to save Princess Daphne from Mordroc, the evil wizard. This time, Dirk must rely on a less than reliable time machine to find her before Mordroc can force her into marriage. The app allows you to play through the Original version or the new Director’s Cut - complete with an alternate ending. Will you save Daphne in time or have to face your furious Mother-in-Law and disappointed children?

You can download Dragon's Lair 2: Time Warp HD for $4.99.

The 1983 Classic ‘Tapper’ is coming to iPad This Spring

Posted by Kyle Flanigan on February 7th, 2011

The year is 1983, and Midway Games, developer and publisher of Ms. Pac-Man, Spy Hunter and Tron are preparing to launch what is later to become a world classic: Tapper. The objective is simple, the gameplay challenging: serve fresh beer whilst collecting old mugs (and hopefully a few tips too) successfully. Its originality proves that games don't need to have the best graphics to make it into the history charts.

Fast forward 28 years to 2011 and history seems to be repeating itself, albeit with a more modern touch. Yep – you guessed it - Tapper is coming to the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch in the Spring of 2011, courtesy of Warner Bros Digital Distribution.

Working with animator Don Bluth, alongside developer Square One, Tapper World Tour for iPad will feature all-new bars from all across the world, with new graphics, advanced gameplay and a taste of originality. The developers plan to include multiple game modes, difficulty settings and a ton of locations to meet your customers' need for thirst quenching beverages.

You’ll be faced with at least three counter tops and an exponentially increasing number of customers, each of which will want their own drink of choice. As things get busier, customers arrive more frequently, drink faster and gradually all will get closer to the bar. You’re going to want to be on top serving form, as all customers must be satisfied before you can move on to the next level. So there’s no slacking in iPad games either.

There’s no word on pricing yet, but this is one game you’re not going to want to miss. Check below for some actual in-game screenshots for both iPhone and iPad. It looks the game will be optimized for iPhone 4 too. If it's anything like the original, then there's much to look forward to.

We’ll continue to post details as we know them, but until them, check out the official Facebook page here.

Dragon's Lair HD Review

iPad App - Designed for iPad

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: FOR THE NOSTALGIC ONLY
Dragon's Lair HD brings the classic arcade game to the iPad in high-resolution glory, but the gameplay is very primitive and unappealing unless you're a longtime fan of the game.

Sneak Peak: Dragon's Lair Screenshots

Posted by Jeff Scott on December 4th, 2009

Dragon's Lair, originally released in 1983, is a classic video game what was of a genre that never really took off. It was the first video game to use a branched laserdisc technology, where all of the on screen game came from a laserdisc player. It was especially amazing technology because it helped surpass the very limited graphics resolutions of the time, but it did introduce some great limitations in the game play. The user would move the joystick at certain times, times that were prompted on screen, and this would branch the user to a new video track. The game works in a similar fashion to the way that games that come with some DVD releases work these days.

With all of its shortcomings of this style of game, the game was beautiful. Animated by a former Disney artist, Don Bluth, the game is really spectacular looking, but very difficult to complete. Take a look at the screens below for an idea of what the game will look like. It's expected soon and will be published by EA Mobile.

I was so excited to see this show up in the App store. Not only was Don Bluth a great story teller (Secret of Nimh, Dragon's Lair), but this brought back strong memories of being in the arcade as a kid. Everything is preserved in this game with the except
