The classic arcade game from the mind and pen of Don Bluth finds its ways to the Xbox. Not only that, but the developers are bringing the game into the third dimension. This action/adventure features lots of exploration, puzzle solving, and the same Dragon's Lair style and humor that made the original so much fun to play. Maneuver 'Dirk The Daring' through the 3D environments while trying to keep him alive.

[edit] Gameplay

Using a magic amulet as his guide, Dirk must accomplish challenges such as jumping over flaming pits and climbing ropes to fly across chasms, as well as battling hordes of the wizard's minions with his sword and a number of brand new special power-ups.
