Dirk the Daring returns in the sequel to the first ever laser-disc game created.
In this sequel, Dirk must travel through time and once again rescue his beloved Prince Daphne from the baddie that is the super-evil-villain Wizard Mordroc. The wizard plans to wed her, Dirk must go forth and put an end to the bad magician once and for all.
Like the first game, you control Dirk by pressing on the corresponding direction/buttons when displayed onscreen (Quick time events),timing is of essence as you have a certain amount of lives.
Visually, animation of characters are wonderful, the footage/scenes are vibrant and colorful, they have its own uniqueness and has stood the test of time rather well. Sound and music-wise, everything is spot on with funny ditties and sound effects.
Along with online leaderboards, original cut, director's cut and watch-mode, Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp is a great nostalgic trip for gamers who enjoyed it back in the days.
Let's hope there are more titles planned from Digital Leisure!...
