Escape
A continuation of the Dragon's Lair adaptation by Readysoft based on scenes from the original Dragon's Lair which were left out.

Released in 1990 for the PC, Amiga, Atari ST and Mac OS, it borrows its title from the earlier 8-bit Dragon's Lair Part II: Escape from Singe's Castle (ESC). Although they share some levels, it is sometimes considered its remake.

StoryEdit

According to the manual, Dirk the Daring had just rescued Princess Daphne, but before his death, the dragon Singe put a curse on her. Daphne falls asleep but Dirk brings her back to life with a kiss, only to see her vanish. Then a figure known as the Shapeshifter appears among smoke and thunders, telling him that Singe was only guarding the gold of the wizard they are serving (possibly Mordroc) and Daphne belongs to him. It vanishes among smoke, and Dirk sets off to rescue Daphne.

Although the game was made to incorporate scenes that were left out from the original game, it also includes some original scenes in order to conclude the new scenario.

GameplayEdit

The program offered some interface with various options, such as dificulty level, direction hints, mirror scenes, save, load, hard drive installation, and optionally link both Dragon's Lair and Escape from Singe's Castle to be played as a single game in one playthrough. In this case, the original game can be played with the options of the new game (such as hints).
