Overview

DragonStrike is a dragon flight simulator taking place in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons universe developed primarily for home computers by Westwood Associates and published by Strategic Simulations in 1990. A highly modified port for the Nintendo Entertainment System was also developed by Westwood Associates and published by Pony Canyon in July, 1992.

Home Computer

Home computer 1st-person gameplay

Primarily released as a game for home computers, DragonStrike put players in control of a dragon from a first-person perspective, completing 20 set missions, going through a rank system and gaining magical abilities. The gameplay mostly comprises of simulation-like flight, intercepting enemy dragons and destroying enemy ships with your unique dragon abilities.

Nintendo Entertainment System

NES top-down gameplay

Somewhat drastically different when it eventually came to the Nintendo Entertainment System two years later, DragonStrike shifted the whole perspective of the game to a top-down style shooter with a higher emphasis on action rather than simulation. Basic gameplay elements stayed consistent with the home computer release, with battles between dragons and enemy convoy a central focus.
