Dragon's Lair - Princess Daphne

The Dragon's Lair game made headlines in the early 80's when it was released in Arcades. Rather than relying on the limited graphics of sprites, the game used a LaserDisc to provide rich animated graphics drawn by former Disney animators. The summary of the game, from Wikipedia is below:

"Dragon's Lair features the hero, Dirk the Daring, attempting to rescue Princess Daphne from the evil dragon Singe locked 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 a 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."

Below is a pretty decent butt shot of Princess Daphne. Enjoy.
