Dragon Spirit: The New Legend (ドラゴンスピリット 新たなる伝説, Dragon Spirit: Aratanaru Densetsu) is a Nintendo Entertainment System video game that was released to both North America and Japan. This game presents itself as a sequel to Dragon Spirit; which was released for the Amstrad CPC, Commodore Amiga, Commodore 64, DOS, Atari ST, Sharp X68000, TurboGrafx-16 and ZX Spectrum platforms. However, it functions more as an enhanced home port.
The player has 360° control within the screen on display with most enemies appearing at the top of the screen. Players have to avoid hitting enemies on-screen as it would damage (and ultimately kill) the main character. Players have two kinds of attacks; shoot directly in the air with fire or bomb the ground with bombs. The main character sprite is large; meaning that the player is easy to destroy. There are nine worlds in the game - ranging from the Paleozoic era to a parallel universe known only as the Evil Palace where the final boss awaits the player in his lair.
This game is a vertical shooter that is based on 1942, 1943, and Tiger Heli. The player controls a dragon who must use fireballs to destroy various enemies. Video game critics have given this game mixed reviews from very positive to very negative.
There are two different kinds of game: the golden dragon game (easy difficulty level) or the blue dragon game (normal difficulty level).
Peace has roamed the kingdom of Olympis for years, thanks to King Amul's (Amru in the English translation) heroic battle against the demon Zawel.

But little did they know that the evil Galda was building an army of evil and used his black magic to resurrect Zawel from the dead. Galda has decided to attack the Earth and Lace must stop him. Taking a sword that belongs to the player's father, he must rescue his sister Iris.
