Dragon's Lair II: Escape From Singe's Castle
Spook or what? Not only do I have to suffer the tedium of Dragon's Lair this month - I get given its sequel too! And, surprise surprise (get that damn woman out of here!), it's pretty much the in the same vein. Only even more pitiful.
I simply don't know why they bothered re-releasing it. There are eight different levels to plough your way through, which I must admit are vaguely varied, but still all complete trash. They range from floating down a river in a barrel (yawn) to fighting loads of mud monsters (double yawn). And they're unbelievably boring and repetitive. The subsiduary levels are snore city too. Yep, much as I hate to be negative, I feel it my obligation to inform you that this is one of the worst games I've ever, ever played (well, since Warlock Of Firetop Mountain anyway, but even that seems rather good in comparison). The only joy I got out of it was bludgeoning it to Speccy heaven with my baseball bat.
