Um. What exactly did you think Dragon's Lair was anyway?

The point being that even this demo would be impossible on a real-honest-to-goodness 1980s ZX81, even with a Rampack. It needs extra hardware to stream the movies off - the only technical achievement here is decoding it to the screen... And that's not hard in z80 asm even with the ZX81's display encoding to deal with; many games came out back in the day with highres graphics.

Now if they could do Dragon's Lair in 16KB without porting the poor platform versions then I'd be impressed.
