DragonHeart: Fire and Steel is a video game loosely based on the 1996 fantasy/adventure film, Dragonheart. On most systems it is a 2D side-scrolling action game, but the Game Boy version is an adventure game with combat scenes, where adventure mode uses a first-person view and combat mode is a simple 2D fighting game.

Story[edit]

DragonHeart: Fire and Steel follows the story of medieval dragonslayer Sir Bowen, in his attempt to rid the world of a particularly evil king along with seven evil dragons that have ruled the world (which the seven evil dragons never appeared in the movie). On the way, he befriends the last dragon to exist, Draco. Sir Bowen and Draco must join forces to defeat the king's army and rescue a damsel in distress. It drops out some of the movie's plot, but it is still a close match.
