Didn't Dragon's Lair just stream movie snippets from laserdisc? I remember playing it once or twice in the arcades, purely because it looked cool. But the essence of the game was to click the joystick in the right direction at the right time, and I actually preferred to watch other people play it.

Having said that, to see the ZX81 output the video is impressive, but there is obviously something else going on to 'help' it out, so it seems this is more about using the ZX81 as a sort of dumb terminal, as opposed to the actual game platform. Mind you, a 1GB RAM pack for a ZX81 would be nothing short of BRILLIANT!!
