The first and only Dragonride RPG-simulator DOS Silverblade (1413)
this game combines RPG and Flight Simulator elements better than any other (with the possible exception of Wing Commander) DOS Gothicgene (83)
There aren't many fantasy simulators to compare this one to, but even if there were, it would have been tough to beat DOS ududy (47)

Trivia

Cover

The game box's cover features a painting by artist Keith Parkinson, earlier used as the front cover to Tracy Hickman's 1984 RPG module "Dragons of Hope".

Music

The AdLib music of this game obviously used the standard sound bank which came with Visual Composer while many games were slowly starting to use custom sounds. Even if that sound bank was cheesy (especially the snare drum), the musical arrangement was way superior to most demo .rol files which were available at that time, including those that came with the card.
