CartoonThis game spawned a Saturday morning cartoon. Before commercial breaks, Dirk would be presented with several options, like jumping for a rope, standing and fighting some goons or taking a right down a tunnel. Upon return from the break the T.V. show would inform the viewer of the results of the various actions with the phrase, "If Dirk had done this..." and a clip showing the demise of the poor adventurer if he'd chosen the wrong path.
PortsDragon's Lair has been ported to nearly every single console/computer platform under the sun. From the IBM PC to the Amiga...from the NES to the Sega CD...even from the Jaguar CD to DVD players.
