MINNEAPOLIS, MN – July 30, 2010 – Experience the fantasy adventures that became a cultural phenomenon! Game publisher Destineer today announces a partnership with Digital Leisure Inc. to develop Dragon’s Lair Trilogy, bringing three timeless arcade adventures together on one disc for Wii TM : Dragon’s Lair, Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp, and Space Ace. For the first time ever on a console platform, you can experience the stunning visuals and engaging storylines from all three of these classic arcade games created by legendary American animator Don Bluth. Lead on brave adventurer, your quest awaits!

An instant hit in its 1983 debut, Dragon’s Lair is one of the most beloved arcade games of all time. As valiant knight Dirk the Daring, immerse yourself in a fantasy adventure on a quest to rescue Princess Daphne from the clutches of an evil dragon. You control the actions of the daring adventurer, finding your way through the castle of a dark wizard, who has enchanted it with treacherous monsters and obstacles.

Straight off the success of Dragon’s Lair, Don Bluth and his creative team began working on a galactic adventure known as Space Ace! In Space Ace you play the heroic Ace who must stop the evil Commander Borf from taking over the Earth! Only two people have the courage and strength to stop Borf and save Earth: the beautiful Kimberly and Ace. But as they approach Borf’s stronghold, Ace is hit by the Infanto Ray, changing him into a child, and Kimberly is kidnapped by the evil madman! The fate of Earth is in your hands!

In the sequel to the smash-hit, Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp allows you to once again play the heroic Dirk the Daring, who must stop the Evil Wizard Mordroc as he has kidnapped Princess Daphne and taken her through time! But you must hurry, for once the Casket of Doom has opened, Mordroc will place the Death Ring upon Daphne’s finger in marriage and she will be lost forever… in the Time Warp!

Silver Strike Bowling

Thursday, February 10th, 2011 | Permalink

Silver Strike Bowling is the most popular video bowling game in on-premise entertainment. The realistic ten-pin trackball bowler can be found in over twelve thousand bars and restaurants in the U.S., Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and the U.K. Its lifelike competitive experience and straightforward trackball control has cultivated an army of nearly 5 million Silver Strike bowlers since the game was first released in the summer of 2004.

Silver Strike Bowling Arcade Game

Up to eight players can play SSB at once, while enjoying three different virtual bowling modes of play. “Vegas Bowling”, the most popular play mode, adds a new level of competition by awarding playing cards for every mark a bowler earns. Additionally, it’s SSB’s realistic physics and 3-D graphics that form the foundation of its success, while the game’s competitive, yet casual, competition has continued to drive players to Silver Strike’s lanes.

In 2006, Incredible Technologies released the newest version of the game, Silver Strike 2007 Bowler’s Club. SSBC is connected online via ITNet® allowing bowler’s to track their stats, compete in contests, be a part of local leagues and, most importantly, enter weekly sweepstakes for huge prizes! Whether it’s cash, cameras or cars, the Silver Strike Sweepstakes is giving away big prizes to avid bowlers every week!
