St. Dragon SCREEN$

I’d forgotten how good the St. Dragon loading screen looked on the Speccy. For the uninitiated, St. Dragon was a side-scrolling space shooter which pitted your invulnerable-tailed robot dragon against various giant mechanical animals such as pumas, bulls and, er, whatever comes after the first level.

Here’s the loading screen (click if it looks weirdly compressed):

And here’s the original shiny chrome, teal and orange box artwork:

Both great stuff!

    Nice. I have a couple of books with that 70s/80s space and sci-fi illustration theme. Do you know the artist?

      Not the original, sorry. Could maybe backtrack from the pixels. Had no luck with a quick search myself. I know you like your retro-sci/fi covers. It’s very of its era!
