I've been playing the Moble App version on the IPod Touch. It is just like I remembered the old arcade version being (when I was 12 and couldn't afford to plug 75 cents for the two scenes I was able to pass.

Is It Any Good?

According to game publisher Digital Leisure, this Blu-ray version has undergone a frame-by-frame digital restoration to remove dirt, scratches and cel deterioration from the original footage. The game looks vibrant and clear, especially compared with past versions. You can even play the game with picture-in-picture commentary with the game makers. The game was also remixed in 5.1 surround sound.

Dragon's Lair on Blu-ray Disc is without question the finest reproduction of this beloved adventure, but it's a pricey pick at $50, not to mention the game can be completed in less than half an hour if you know all the moves. But nostalgic gamers who own a Blu-ray player should enjoy this disc and its supplemental material -- if you haven't already purchased any of the other home-based versions.
