Thanks to Digital Leisure, Android gamers of a certain age can experience the delights of retro laserdisc classic Dragon's Lair all over again.

In Dragon's Lair on Android, you control Dirk the Daring, a heroic knight on a valiant mission to rescue his princess from an evil dragon. Sounds cheesy, but bear with it.

The game plays out through a series of reflex-testing Quick Time Events: you tap on the screen to guide Dirk in the direction you wish and flail your sword at the appropriate juncture.

Cue hilarious / bizarre full motion video.

You can grab Dragon's Lair right now from the Android Market for £3.32 [download].
