    Dragon's blood is the story of a knight in a quest to save the world from the
    last dragon. In addition of this, it's a tradition to kill a dragon before a
    knight becomes a prince. That's why everyone is the game will call you dragon's
    scourge. That's all for the scenario. Interplay has created a great game. Their
    other DC title was MDK 2, i think it was a good game but also a difficult one
    in the way of the controls. This time, they have created again an action game
    but it's an easy game to handle.
    The presentation is very poor, it is a poor dialogue on poor cinematics. The
    red color used is terrible and i always zap it. Worst is the very slow battle
    between an ork and a skeleton. The player can think he has bought a bad game.
    In two words : FORGET IT.
    Graphically this game is for true adventurers. You will visit several castles,
    towers and villages, and others. The map of each stage is gigantic and you will
    spend a lot of hoursif you wish to explore it at 100%. The bosses in the game
    are simply excellent. All the sprites are based on the middle age and i admit
    it's one of my favourite atmosphere for a game.
    Interplay has done a great job with the animation. 60 fps, damned i like it so
    much, the game never slows even when four sprites attack you. The movements are
    smooth and quick. The magic effects are various. Except for the last boss, none
    offer a visual show and that's my only regret.
    There is no music. Ok, there are musics but they come and disappear as quickly
    as they appear according to the situation. They are good but it's not the
    strong point. Where Interplay have done a great job for this part is in the
    voice acting. All voices are excellent (even the one of Krujens). We feel that
    every actors have pleasure to play their role. The atmosphere in these
    conditions has no equal on the DC for an action game.
    The character is very easy to handle. He can also perform excellent combos. I
    used the warrior and he had a lot of weapons according to the situation. He was
    also a honorable magic user. With the sorceress the game is slightly different.
    The cntrols are always easy but we can count on her magic power. She is in
    these conditions less strong with a weapon. The difference is clear and only
    you can choose which one is the best for you.
    Dragon's blood is a jewel of the DC. You can see it as a classical action game,
    but you must choose your progression, you can search for the blessings in each
    stage and there are side quests in each stage. I like this game and i'm very
    happy that it exists only on the DC.

    								ADK, the dragon's scourge.
    2 Characters :
    Cynric the warrior : He is a valiant knight and a good magic user. I found him
    powerful but only 2 magics were useful : Shield and Berserk. The "true" healing
    spell is missing, it is a bonus of 2 vials for him.
    Aeowyn the sorceress : She is less powerful than Cynric with a weapon but she
    is also an excellent magic user (logic for a sorceress...). Her text is
    different from Cynric but she will play the same quest. That's why after 2
    stages i abandon the game with her. However in the last stages i suppose that
    with all her magics it can be easy to win.
    3 Ennemies :
    Elf : They are allies. You must help them. They will give you great powers.
    Krujens : They have a horrible voice and move everywhere quickly. It's easy to
    kill one but hard to handle 2 or 3.
    Goblins : They are big and have a good technique. The problem is that they have
    a lack of HP.
    Skeletons : In theory a skeleton fears magic and especially fire. You can
    forget this rule. Here to kill a skeleton, the only way is to fight and they
    are hard to kill.
    Trolls : Their second name must be STUPID. Just because they are powerful, they
    go straight on you.
    Ogre : Same as the trolls but slower.
    Spider, Hybrid, Scorpion and Giant Lizard : They haunt the swamp and i don't
    like them.
    Draconus : They are Dragon man. It exists 5 different Draconus. You will see
    that they are all difficult to kill.
    Minotaur : It is the nightmare of the beginner. Hard to hit, you need to circle
    around them or hit them when they hit you. They have the best dodge movement of
    all the ennemies.
    Hell hound : They can burn you, so it's a good idea to kill them quickly.
    4 Bosses :
    Alana : She summons demons but if you push her in the void she dies
    Giant Minotaur : He guards the level 2 exit. You need a good technique to kill
    Gavrik : The best skeleton fighter, but nothing else.
    Mister Big : A ghost you must kill, if you wish that Fearghas rests in peace.
    Queen : It's a giant insect but it's an easy boss.
    The champion + 2 fire elementals : He guards the exit of the level 11. Use the
    shield spell to kill him.
    Strong Pic Chief + 1 Dwarf : The boss of the dwarves awaits you in the level
    X'Calith : It's the last dragon and also the last boss. Exactly as in Lodoss
    and PSO, he must never fly if you wish to win this battle.
    5 Blessings :
    There are two types of blessings :
    1) The normal blessing :
    Find them in all stages. They allow you to upgrade your character. There are 3
    per stages except for some stages where you can find only 2.
    2) The healing blessing :
    Their number in a stage is random, one or two usually and sometimes 3 or 4.
    They heal of lot of HP according to your current level.
