Dragon Skulle is a video game for the Commodore 64 developed and released by Ultimate Play the Game in late 1985. It is a sequel to The Staff of Karnath, Entombed and Blackwyche, and is the final title to feature the aristocrat adventurer, Sir Arthur Pendragon. The game was created by brothers Dave and Robert (Bob) Thomas.[2]


Dragon Skulle is an arcade adventure in isometric perspective pseudo-3D set on the fictional island of Dragon Skullle, where you must find and destroy the Skull of Souls.[3] The gameplay is more about exploring than puzzle solving when compared with its predecessors.[2]


The game received a 53% rating from Zzap!64 who criticised the game on the basis of poor 3D, weak sound and lack of originality. All three reviewers expressed gratitude that it was the last in the Arthur Pendragon series.[3]
