Dragons with jetpacks? Reminds me of Tyrannosaurs in F14s...

Trivia - I wrote a four player version of this on the Amiga, but in mine you had to shoot the rex with paintballs before escaping.

Trivia - An Amiga 500... I'm getting old.

Ill be hopeful for a change! Bring on the jet powered dragons!

Not enough dragon games! I've been waiting for a good dragon combat game since Dragon Strike

FTFY, I tried to play Lair on the PS3. not a good dragon game.
Hoard however, is a pretty decent time waster.

dragons surrounded by hundreds of smaller units that sling lasers, crossbow bolts and bullets with startling abandon. We were given a glimpse of a night mission and the sky is lit up like a decade of bonfire nights – a jetpacking dragon in the centre, using his rockets to dodge attacks and charge after gunships.
I think my eyes just exploded. All that awesome... Sounds like one to watch!

Someone's listened to all the X3 players insisiting on flying super capitals around like fighters - and made a fantasy version...

I loved my Amiga 500. Eventually got a 512k expansion. I used to do ray tracing on it. Render 1 line per hour. Leave it running all night. Once in a while I used to open it up and wash the circuit board under the shower then let it dry out thoroughly (I hated dust getting inside).

Carrier Command
Interceptor
Star Ray
Mercenary
Speedball

Remind anyone else of (i think it's called) Drakengard? I remember **** off sized battles with you flying around on a dragon, and this looks pretty similar :)
