  1. A magnificent tribute to the 1983 coin-op Lair and a highly entertaining game for today's players. It offers a simple, almost relaxing format of fighting/jumping/adventuring set in a huge and vividly colorful castle. What more can one ask from a video game?
  2. It has everything that I could possibly want all bundled up in one nice little package: an epic quest, beautiful graphics, great music, and puzzles around every turn... It truly is that marvelous.

    It's bigger than before and looks great as Don is back at the graphical helm but there are some elements which are obviously out of his control such as the collision detection system, framerate slowdown and poor camera angles.

    Simply put, outside of the boss battles, fighting is boring and often times sloppy. [Feb 2003, p101]
  5. The controls in the game take some getting used to, as they try and follow the basic platform layout, but at the same time try and do something a bit more Zelda-esque.
