is a platform, dungeon crawling action role-playing game that was developed by Namco and released in 1985.
The player must guide the hero Clovis through each round on to the castle to rescue his beloved Princess Celia. There are multiple Princess Celias in the game, one in every few castles. The goal is to reach the true Celia at the end of the game in the final castle. Celia wears a different outfit each time she is rescued. As the player progresses through the round, he or she must choose various paths to take on to the castle.
The game featured side-scrolling platform gameplay and an overworld map. Dragon Buster was also the earliest game to feature a double jump mechanic and one of the first to use a visual health meter. It runs on Namco Pac-Land hardware
