    The FIRST-EVER dragon combat simulator!



    Feel the raw power of the mighty dragon surging beneath you as the wind beats against your face. Your hand trembles, not from the heft of your dragonlance, but from anticipation of the battle that is to come. The air screams with the fury of enemy dragons and creatures - even flying citadels!

    This is DragonStrike, where the deadly skies above the AD&D DRAGONLANCE game world of Krynn explode before your very eyes. The realistic first-person viewpoint propels you into a detailed, fully animated, 3-dimensional world of incredible action and excitement!

    Learn to fly dragons and master over 20 different missions. Receive magic items along the way - you're going to need them! Dragon fangs, talons and deadly breath weapons are just a few of the dangers you'll face in the fierce heat of dragon combat!

    To the skies brave knight - and victory!
