Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp

LEGEND

U = Up

D = Down

L = Left

R = Right

S = Sword

A move with a () indicates a treasure location. For example, the move (U)S would mean that you would press Up to collect the treasure and then Sword when the scene replays to continue your progress. In Director’s Cut, you will move on automatically after pressing Up to collect the treasure, so there will be no need to press Sword.

Note that levels 2 through 7 may end up being mirror image levels (it appears random for every playthrough), so if you are using this walkthrough, just reverse all of the Left and Right directional moves.
