Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp - Animation of Death by Strangulation.
Bluth, Don--1937 -
After the success of Dragon’s Lair, the studio began developing Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp in 1983. It takes place years after the original; Dirk and Daphne have married and produced numerous children. When Daphne is kidnapped by the evil wizard, Mordroc, Dirk must save her. The game was not released until 1991 as an arcade game. The gameplay differs from the original in that it was linear instead of random and the player was able to collect treasure and extra points. Dirk progresses through seven dimensions with the help of a time machine, until he gets to the final battle with Mordroc’s minions. Another level with Dirk on a pirate ship was storyboarded for the game, but omitted from the 1991 release.
If the player was not quick enough Dirk would become the prey of Beethoven's cat.
