My only complaint is that the treasure items that looked so nice in the 2600 version are plain and single-colored here. In later stages a troll patrols the treasure room, adding to the challenge. Dragonfire has ten skill levels, and although it's tough, the controls are perfectly responsive. This game has it all. There's even a nice title screen showing a princess in the tower and the dragon peeking out of the gate.

The treasures are wonderfully detailed - not the blocky junk you normally see. The castles and dragons have a nice variety of color schemes, and the challenge ramps nicely. Dragonfire is easily my favorite Imagic game, and one of my favorite Atari 2600 titles overall.
IntellivisionThe Video Game Critic
Unfortunately, the graphics are not as sharp as the 2600 version. Although the dragons look exactly the same, the chunky, single-colored treasures pale against the beautiful riches of the Atari version. Also, the collision detection is poor and you'll sometimes run right through a treasure. Dragonfire for the Intellivision is a good, albeit uneven, effort.

While it's a simple game and there are basic skills that can be readily learned, there's room for sophisticated moves and tactical finesse. Graphics are small, but cute; the sound effects are about what you'd expect from Imagic offerings. As another of the grab-and-go formats, this one is distinctive enough for long-term fun.
Fazit: Andauernder Spielspaß für Besitzer des ATARI- und des INTELLIVISION-Systems.

Graphisme très fouillé, bruitage et animation à la hauteur des jeux Imagic. Un reproche : l'action, si difficile soit-elle est un peu répétitive. Dommage !
Umwerfend ist die ganze Geschichte nicht, wenngleich sie in Sachen Grafik als gelungen bezeichnet werden darf.

A real contender for the Turkey of the Year Award is this one, the graphics are awful (the jumps are particularly hilarious) and the game has no real challenge to it.
