Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp Game Play
Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp is a 1991 laserdisc video game by the Leland Corporation. It is regarded as the first “true” sequel to Dragon’s Lair. It takes place years after the original Dragon’s Lair. Dirk has married Daphne, and the marriage has produced many children. When Daphne is kidnapped by the evil wizard Mordroc in order to be forced into marriage, Dirk’s children and his mother-in-law are clearly upset by the abduction of Daphne, and Dirk must once again save her.
As with the original, Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp consists of an animated short film that requires the player to move the joystick or press a fire button at certain times in order to continue. The game follows a traditional damsel in distress storyline where Dirk the Daring must find and rescue Daphne with the help of a well-spoken time machine. It seems that the time machine is (or has been possessed by) the brother of Mordroc, the foul wizard that has kidnapped Daphne. Dirk travels through several dimensions and historical eras searching for Daphne, some inspired by classic stories and fairy tales such as Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty, to prevent Mordroc from enslaving Daphne to his whim with the dreaded Death Ring. Voice actor Michael Rye reprises his role as the narrator in the attract sequence, as he did with Dragon’s Lair as well as Space Ace.
