Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp has arrived on iPad through a newly released “HD” version.
The sequel to the original Dragon’s Lair laserdisc arcade adventure game, Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp was released for iPhone by Electronic Arts back in 2011. It was rereleased by Digital Leisure in February 2014.
And now, a year later, it has finally been released for iPad by Digital Leisure in the form of Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp HD.
The new title is essentially an iPad-optimized edition of its iPhone counterpart, featuring the same story, visuals, gameplay, and enhancements for the iOS platform.
In the game, you once again play as Dirk the Daring and rescue Princess Daphne from the evil wizard Mordroc. You have to race against time or else Mordroc and Daphne will be bound in marriage and lost forever in the Time Warp.
Moreover, it features intuitive touch-optimized controls, HD videos, and Game Center integration for achievements and leaderboards.
Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp HD also lets you choose to play with three, five, or even infinite lives, and to play through the original version or the director’s cut, which includes an alternate ending.
Although coming as a separate title rather than as a universal update to the iPhone game, Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp HD is a welcome presence on iPad, especially if you’d like to play (or replay) an arcade adventure game that was considered ahead of its time.
Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp was first released in 1991, eight years after the original publication of Dragon’s Lair.
