Dragon's Revenge (ドラゴンズ・リベンジ?) is a pinball video game by Tengen, released for Sega Genesis in 1993. It is a follow-up to Devil's Crush (Dragon's Fury). A cancelled version for the Sega Master System also has been originally planned. The game was released to generally positive reviews.

Gameplay[edit]

There are several various stages and bonus/boss stages in the game. However, none of them is attempting to simulate an actual pinball machine like in most other pinball games and the game only uses basic pinball mechanics.

Plot[edit]

The evil Darzel used her magic to capture three dragon-slayers: Kragor the warrior, Flavia the female barbarian, and the good sorceress Rina. The player's role is to magic balls (pinball balls of the game) as a weapon on the quest to rescue the captive heroes, and then them lead in their fight to defeat Darzel and her dragon consort, and ultimately free the village of Kalfin's Keep.

Reception[edit]

Dragon's Revenge was given a review score of 14.5 out of 20 by GamePro, who called it "a solid game for pinball fans and gamers who like fast action" and liked Dragon's Fury.[1] Electronic Gaming Monthly complimented the graphics and said the game was worthwhile for those who like pinball games. They gave it a 6.8 out of 10.[2] Mean Machines Sega rated 74% but opined it was a mediocre title and a disappointment compared to Dragon's Fury two years earlier.[3] A review in Sega Visions, however, was much more positive.[4]
