My mom would always let me get one when we went to the supermarket
They came in a little pack which included a sheet with an illustrated background to rub your decal on.
The decals were like the material of temporary tattoos, and when you rubbed with a pencil over the back of the sheet, they would adhere to the surface of the page You make characters appear wherever the hell you wanted them to on the provided canvas. I would also use them on my note books, bedroom door decorations.. wherever!
I still had them all over my door - right up until I moved out My mom took the door down and re-finished it and turned my room into a guest room do you believe that shit?? Those were classic!!! - She obviously doesn't know what good is...
was one of the first laserdisc video games, released in June 1983 by Cinematronics.
I always sucked at this game - I remember it cost more to play and it would last about 5 seconds...! But..It did look pretty cool for the time
"It featured animation created by former Disney animator Don Bluth. Most other games of the era represented the character as a sprite, which consisted of a series of bitmaps animated by playing them in succession. However due to hardware limitations of the era, artists were greatly restricted in the detail they could achieve using that technique; the resolution, framerate and number of frames were severely constrained. Dragon's Lair overcame those limitations by tapping into the vast storage potential of laserdisc, but imposed other limitations on the actual gameplay. The game's enormous contrast with other arcade games of the time created a sensation when it appeared, and was played so heavily that many machines often broke due to the strain of overuse. It was also arguably the most successful game on this medium and is aggressively sought after by collectors."
"Dragon's Lair features the hero, "Dirk the Daring", attempting to rescue "Princess Daphne" from the evildragon Singe holed up in a wizard's castle. The screen shows animated scenes, and the player executes an action by selecting a direction or pressing the sword button with correct timing. The comedy of the game stemmed from not only the bizarre looking creatures and death scenes, but the fact that while Dirk was skilled knight, he was somewhat clumsy in his efforts and was a reluctant hero, prone to shrieking and reacting in horror to the various dangers he encounters." - From Wikipedia
