A fantasy arcade action game switching gameplay from pseudo-3D to 2D and featuring unique graphics and sound. Originally released on Amiga and then on Atari ST and PC (DOS).
 
Review
Unreal At the Land of Nothingness (!), Arabatan and his lovely wife, Isolde, live peacefully near a lake. The unique with this couple is that they have a special friend, a dragon named Dracus! But one day while out walking, Isolde was kidnaps by the evil Master of Darkness who was mesmerized by her beauty and declared he would marry her on Mortenis Day, not long off! Your mission is to rescue her, having the precious help of your dragon friend.
The game consists of eight levels, five in pseudo-3D! Initially the game sees you aboard Dracus, flying on high speed (only!) and collecting crystals for bonuses while avoiding trees, hills and huge dinosaurs, bears etc! The second level goes to 2D controlling Arabatan with his paltry sword and battle with various warriors and small dragons! Be careful though because several deadly obstacles fly on you such as rocks etc. Oh, you must look around carefully (especially when in 2D mode) to unravel clues to advance. Also by poking your sword into a nearby fire, it is magically transformed into a flairy weapon which makes enemy bashing considerably easier, saving your energy in the process. Just keep an eye on you flaming sword, because it may kill you instantly if carrying it in this state for too long.

The MS-DOS version offers some nice visuals taken from the original (Amiga) version, but overall look inferior to the Amiga and similar in quality to the ST version. Graphics consists of some nice visuals on both pseudo-3D and pure 2D levels, along with nicely designed sprites . Overall the game features nice touches like resolving moons and multi-level scrolling but also a number of different switching screen resolutions (high res for the title screens, low for the pseudo 3D levels for ultra fast bits and standard the 2d horizontal levels), but again there are a few really pleasant touches missing from the original (i.e. check the Amiga version details at the skies which are full of color-shadings, clouds etc!).The sound on the PC (DOS) version is nice, having all original tunes and SFX, but again inferior to the original as, only Ad-Lib sound hardware is supported.
