Dragon's Lair 3D
Hint: Pinball level:
On the Pinball level where you are avoiding the balls
going back and forth, jump if the side-to-side pinball is approaching
you. This way, Dirk will not slow down and you can avoid getting
hit by the big black ball following you.
Hint: The Dragon's Lair:
When the dragon tries to light you on fire with his
mouth, run close and opposite to where the it opens its mouth.
Once the dragon has completed with its fiery salvo, run out of
his claws reach and face him. The dragon will then directly shoot
out the flame that you have to catch with your magical sword (press
Guard). Press Attack to release the fire from the
sword to cause the dragon pain. Once the dragon is vulnerable,
slash it with your sword once or twice. Run out of its way when
it recuperates. The process will start again about five times.
During the second bout, he will fire two salvos. You can then
catch the fire with your sword. During the third bout he will
fire three salvos. You can then catch the fire with your sword
and so on.
Hint: The Impossible Room:
This level is not really that difficult. Remember --
everything is a mirror reflection of the rooms that seem upside
down while you are looking up. Get familiar with the behavior
of the room and knock it out. However, the difficult part is figuring
the locations of the other rooms to get out of this room. The
first two are easy because you stumble across them. When you get
the Dragon's Eye (so you can see hidden doors), look for an eyeball
on the wall. When you see it, use your Dragon's Eye to find the
opening. There are only two hidden rooms in the Impossible Room.
Look carefully -- one room has bonus items you need. The second
room takes you to the Lizard King. When you get the Dragon's Skin
(armor against fire), fall down the hole that has fire billowing
up on the bottom floor. This will end the Impossible Room and
will take you deeper into the castle (Lava Level).
Hint: Defeating Mordroc:
In the first part, the key to defeating Mordroc is
to use the "green arrow" that is located in your inventory
(press Start). Select the green arrow and lock on to Mordroc.
Fire the bow with the green arrow five more times. You have to
replenish your green arrow one at a time by killing the mini-black
dragons that Mordroc fires at you. Keep collecting the green arrows
and make sure to lock on to Mordroc.
In the second part, once Mordroc goes down upon his knees, he
changes into a Black Singe. All of your elements are taken by
Mordroc and you are going to have to fight the old-fashioned way.
He flies around shooting lightning bolts from his mouth. Run away
every time you see the electricity forming around his mouth. Get
into your guard stance when you do not see the electric bolts
forming around his mouth. In another words, Mordroc the Dragon
shoots out a ball of electricity (instead of the stream of electricity),
and you have to catch it by being in your guard stance. Once your
sword catches the bolt, release the bolt and use it against Mordroc.
Once Mordroc the Dragon falls to the ground, run up to him and
strike his stomach with the sword. The process then repeats. Remember
to keep a close eye on his mouth -- electricity forming around
the mouth is bad and no electricity around the mouth is good.
Do this five times and enjoy the ending sequence.
