Dragons of Flame (ドラゴン・オブ・フレイム Doragon obu Fureimu) is a video game released in 1989 for various home computer systems and consoles. It is a sequel to Heroes of the Lance.[1]

Gameplay

Like Heroes of the Lance it is arcade oriented, with few RPG elements.[1]

The style of the game is very much like its predecessor, horizontally scrolling fighting controlling one character at a time.

Plot

It is based on the second Dragonlance campaign module, Dragons of Flame, and the second half of the first Dragonlance novel Dragons of Autumn Twilight. The plot is a faithful representation of the books it is based on.

Development

Dragons of Flame was adapted from the Dragons of Flame printed adventure module.[2][3]

The game Shadow Sorcerer is a sequel to this game's storyline, but has quite different gameplay.

The Famicom version, the only AD&D Famicom game not released on the NES, was the first game to be translated by the fan translation group DvD Translations (October 31, 2003).

Reception

According to GameSpy, "while the number of characters was increased to 10, the gameplay remained the same moderately competent, hack-'n-slash, side-scrolling action, marking this as another less than stellar entry on SSI's resume".[4]
