OH MY FUCKING GOD. I REMEMBER THIS, but only from the TV series. I also remember a print book with these characters. This game looks like it was the hardest game in the history of games.

actually it was super-easy, just like Space Ace, you just had to remember which direction to go at what moment. That's it.

that being said, I spent a lot of quarters learning those moves.

I don't know what it was like on an arcade machine, but on a segacd it was terrible. The timing is unforgiving, but the the segacd controls were often non-responsive.

Princess had better be hot is all I'm saying.

Wait, my memory is coming back a bit. I think I had the lunchbox rather than a print book.

Also princess is totally hot.

I had this on PC from one of those "20 CD-ROM games for $20!" packages in the mid '90s. The directions were mapped to keys I never figured out. I remember giving up fairly quickly. Come to think of it, that was the case with a lot of games in the box.

This fucking game.

I could have paid for a PhD on the interest of the money I dropped in this fucking game. Did I beat it, eventually, a few week before the arcade shuttered it's doors and became a video rental shack? Yes. Do I regret it? A little.

Don't feel bad, I beat Superman: The Arcade Game AND Time Traveler 3d in the arcade (combined total of $30 but Time Traveler was at least $1 per credit).

And the Aliens arcade game but that's more defensible.

I don't think I ever quite made it to the end of the last level of Golden Axe without running out of quarters though.

So many many quarters.

Someone could sorta recreate this game in youtube using video links for choices

Dragon's Lair and Space Ace were released on DVD with a mode that just let you watch all of the footage like this a long time ago. Interestingly, though, when you just watch the linear laserdisc files, you of course get to see all the unique death animations.
I've always had a deep love not only for the design and animation, but that great pantomime-esque thing of having virtually no dialogue.

The foley and sound design are great!

"Hi, I'm Don Bluth. Did you notice my gigantic vore fetish? Well okay then you have a nice day" Also I'm submitting full video for Thayers quest so it's laser disc games week now.

More than anything, this video makes me realize just how much I miss western 2D animation.

I wonder if the Dragon's Lair theatrical film (and the seven other animated features Don Bluth allegedly has in production) will ever see the light of day.

The crowdfunded DL movie is still in development. However, according to people who contributed to it and get the members-only updates and such, it apparently looks amazing and does seem to be making legit progress.
