Dragons of Flame (ドラゴン・オブ・フレイム Doragon obu Fureimu?) is a video game released in 1989 for various home computer systems and consoles. It is a sequel to Heroes of the Lance.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Like Heroes of the Lance it is arcade oriented, with few RPG elements.[1] The style of the game is very much like its predecessor, horizontally scrolling fighting controlling one character at a time.

Plot[edit]

It is based on the second Dragonlance campaign module, Dragons of Flame, and the second half of the first Dragonlance novel Dragons of Autumn Twilight. The plot is a faithful representation of the books it is based on.

Development[edit]

Dragons of Flame was adapted from the Dragons of Flame printed adventure module.[2][3] The game Shadow Sorcerer is a sequel to this game's storyline, but has quite different gameplay.

Reception[edit]

According to GameSpy, "while the number of characters was increased to 10, the gameplay remained the same moderately competent, hack-'n-slash, side-scrolling action, marking this as another less than stellar entry on SSI's resume".[4]
