Dragon's Lair - Escape from Singe's Castle - Atari ST [010] PlayThru AutoPlay

Title Screen
 Think of this capture as a movie, it (and the other five ReadySoft titles) were all run from a hard disk installation to avoid the disk swapping nightmare otherwise present on the ST.

The Atari ST adaption of Dragon's Lair is by no means complete, so add this footage into the capture of the first Atari ST port of the game, and the the experience comes closer to being complete.

Not really too much to say about this game.  I did not have it in the 90s, unlike Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and Dragon's Lair II: Timewarp, so going through it now was the first play experience for me.

While I understand production is expensive, I feel that ReadySoft was milking the Dragon's Lair name by essentially splitting the game up between two separate games, at a $39.99 to $59.99 price point.

As I said with my Dragon's Lair release, this game is nice to check out, but a more modern release would be highly advised if interested in Dragon's Lair at all.

A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.
