Family is a powerful force, as demonstrated by Prince Lace as he fights his evil enemies to save his twin sister, Princess Iris, in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game, Dragon Spirit: The New Legend. The first battle will determine if Prince Lace will continue on as a blue dragon or a gold dragon. Game play in Blue Dragon mode requires Prince Lace, now appearing as a dragon, to successfully move through nine battle areas. If the Gold Dragon mode is the path that will lead to the rescue of Princess Iris, the challenge drops to five battle areas. At the end of each area, a climactic battle with ensue with one of many menacing bosses. The NES controller provides two options to attack enemies and objects that attempt to hinder the progress of the dragon. The A button fires bombs at objects that pose a threat from the ground, while pressing the B button results in fireballs targeting threats in the sky. The dragon color relates to the difficulty level, so not only does the gold dragon have fewer areas to complete but he also can take twice as many hits as the blue dragon. Playing the full version of Dragon Spirit: The New Legend challenges the blue dragon with all the obstacles in the game as he faces dinosaurs in the Paleozoic Era Area, volcanic lava in the Volcano Area, swarming insects in the Jungle Area, fire breathing monsters in the Graveyard Area, spiders and moving walls in the Cave Road Area, thick ice walls in the Glacier Area, attacking fish in the Deep Sea Area, a multitude of enemies covered in complete darkness in the Dark Quarters Area, and the final boss, Galda, in the Dark Castle Area. In usual Nintendo fashion, there are rewards and perks that help the Prince Lace dragon complete his mission. When the dragon destroys enemies, he could be rewarded with the ability to move quickly with an increase in speed, a wider range for his firepower to attack enemies, maximum firing strength, the power to shrink to a smaller size so he can squeeze through tight spaces, two smaller dragons to accompany him, invincibility, a protective barrier, a gift to create earthquakes for widespread enemy destruction, power bombs that cause the ground to tremble, an increase of 5,000 bonus points, and a power up by one level. While collecting these rewards and perks, watch out for the skull, or the dragon’s power will decrease by one level. When each boss is defeated for each area, Princess Iris’s maids might appear to offer additional rewards. You can play through the entire Dragon Spirit: The New Legend NES game in both the Blue Dragon mode and the Gold Dragon mode to experience the unique ending for each game play mode.
