Trivia

1001 Video Games

The Arcade version of Dragon's Lair appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Board Game

Milton Bradley released a Dragon's Lair boardgame conversion in 1983.

Cartoon

This 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.

Ports

Dragon'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.
