The mythical dragon has frightened and fascinated folk since the dawn of time. Tales of these massive, scaly beasts eating cattle and kidnapping fair maidens has engrossed civilisations. And the legend hasn't just stayed on Earth, either.

In fact, one alien planet is jolly pleased that dragons are such a talking point. The reason being that they've been invaded by a marauding band of outer space pirates, who happen to be terrified of the merest mention of these fiery beasts. To combat the threat from the stars, the inhabitants of this world nave constructed a huge metallic version of the monster, complete with all manner of weapons and abilities, in the hope of scaring the nasties back to their own world.

Split into five stages, St Dragon has the player perched on the back of the dragon ship, dealing death to thealien hordes. Beginning with a measly plasma weapon, collect various tokens allowing you too power up with lasers, bouncing bombs and fireballs. Alternatively, just smash those robotic raiders with your hyper alloy metal tail!

Originally released by The Sales Curve, St Dragon is quite an enjoyable little blaster, with detailed graphics which animate well and move around at quite a zippy rate. You've seen it all before, of course, a million times in fact. But that's what the punters want - and they should be well happy with this.

GARTH: A robotic dragon, tons on weapons and a few good aliens to blast up. Mmm, sounds good to me! St. Dragon is a fast and busy game that'll keep you going for quite a while.

You've seen it all before, but St. Dragon still holds its own in the shoot 'em up arena. Fast action and good graphics mean you won't be disappointed.
