To reach the King's treasures, the Prince runs across the bridge.

He must dodge fireballs tossed by Dragon hatchlings. He nimbly ducks under the high ones and leaps over the low ones. Fortunately, the fireballs can't hurt the Prince if he runs back into the tower at the right end of the bridge.

When the Prince reaches the left side of the bridge, he arrives in the storeroom. He's inside a hiding place he can return to any time. The storeroom is filled with beautiful objects - and a fierce Dragon whose very breath can cost the Prince one of his five precious chances!

When the Dragon looks the other way, the Prince runs to each object and retrieves it for the King. And when he has bravely cleared out the room of its treasures, a way of escape appears. He runs to it and reappears on the bridge, ready for another daring raid.

Help the Prince get as many treasures as possible, before he's hit by fireballs... and remember, every Dragon you meet is harder to beat!

The zip package includes:

- Inlay cover art

This game was released in 2018 and deliberately preserves the same Atari 2600 feeling and graphics.
As it happens in Pac-Man on the 256th screen, there's a glitch in the last level (very difficult to reach without using cheats) that prevents the player from continuing. The bug was reported to me, but I wanted to leave it as it is.

Special thanks to Allan Turvey for his special "big sprites" code used for the Dragon.
