The Story

Become one with Dirk the Daring, whose intentions are always good and honest, as you step into a marvelous world of fully animated dungeons, dragons, castle traps, wizards, potions and spells. It is the detailed retelling of the tale in which Singe kidnapped Daphne, only this time you are in full control of Dirk's and Daphne's destiny. It's up to Dirk to rescue the fair maiden by treading carefully along the darkened path towards the dreaded Dragon's Lair.

Challenges arise around every corner, so be alert on your quest, brave knight. Avoid the strange tentacles that rise from the moat when you cross the drawbridge and watch out as flying books and jumping bookcases in the library that try to smack you down. Make a wrong move and the floor might disappear, and you may find a door that's not what it appears and you'd better run…quickly!

Lead on, brave adventurer, your quest awaits…
