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.
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
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.
