A downloadable game for Windows

Dragon Lair is an arcade-style score-attack game where you play as a dragon that must move around an arena, defeat enemies with fire-breath, and collect loot from their remains, all while avoiding an elusive Wizard who keeps you captive!

This game was made over the course of 5 days for an impromptu gamejam with some other developers I know. All the games had to be made around the theme "Fortune," hence the focus on treasure.

Controls for the game are simple: Use WASD or the Arrow-Keys on your keyboard to move your body about, and use the Mouse Cursor to move your head. Left Mouse will breathe fire, while Right Mouse stops your head's movement. Only your body can collect loot, but it is also your weak-point, so avoid being hit there!

Collecting enough loot will spawn a bonus Unicorn, which can drop health-pickups or rare treasure when killed.

Played this on my channel! I like your silly wiggly dragon.

Oh man, this is great! I love it


That dragon looks goofy with its small legs :o) nice

Honestly i'm not a fan of infinite scoring game, so I would have liked some kind of ending. I liked the art though and I think it's cool to see your loot pile up. It's a satisfying way to do a progress bar. The controls for the dragon are interesting. I found it a bit confusing at first but you get used to it. Anyway that's my two cents :)
