Rise of the Dragon is an adventure game, developed by Dynamix and has been released in 1990 for DOS and Macintosh. Later it was ported for the Amiga and Sega CD console. The gameplay is pretty decent: via mouse cursor the action is made and orders are made, objects are examined and various strange persons are talked to. The cursor reacts if you point something interesting. The control is easy and the riddles are not that hard and logic.
Year 2053: Los Angeles is led by a crime organisation and the narcotraffic expands. The main actor is William “Blade” Hunter who seems to be similar to Rick Deckard from Blade Runner. When the governor’s daughter is killed he has to uncover the case.
