Fyr-Draca was put out by ColorQuest, the games division of Nelson Software Systems (later Softlaw). It was one of the rare games that used the Semi-Graphics 24 mode, which allowed mixed text and graphics with up to 9 colors, but only 64x192 resolution. In this arcade game, you must shoot the dragons and their eggs, while dodging the fireballs that they send at you. There are multiple levels, and bonus rounds where you must catch all eggs before they drop off the bottom of the screen, and shoot all of the dragons before you fly off the top of the screen. One thing fairly unique about this game is that if you fire while you already have a shot on the screen, your old shot will disappear, and a new one will appear.
