Darby is the prince of Dragondale, and one day he finds a magic wand just lying around. Intrigued, he takes it and goes to show it to his big sister. They then have a fight over it and he wishes she was smaller than him. Well, it turns out to be a magic wand, because it grants his wish! Darby has to go on a quest to find the items he needs to restore his sister's size.

Darby the Dragon is an adventure game for children with a single-click interface, in the style of Freddi Fish, and many other such adventure games.
