There was question about game, not precised it should be playable one

There are some games on 12 disks:
Adventures of Willy Beamish
Bloodnet AGA
Erben Der Erde AGA
Biing! ECS/OCS

11 disks:
Flight of the Amazon Queen
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Monkey Island 2
Super Street Fighter II Turbo (HD only... and it sucks )

Honorable mention: Vision: The 5 Dimension Utopia
Most disks FOR FREE!!!

7 Disks, constantly swapping, felt more like 70 on A500

Dragons Lair was a disk swap fest... only 6 disks, but you didn't get much gameplay before having to swap disks again.

Amazing concept, but as a game, not much fun. More of a technology tester from the early 80s.

Quite frankly, watching a game completed on Youtube is FAR more fun than trying to play it.

I own Dragon's Lair original disks, but the cracked version was 8 disks and had even more swapping! If you thought the game play was tedious, the games after were worse. Dragon's Lair II arcade gameplay was really poor and became a chore as it was so finicky about timing and moves.

If it came on one disk you still wouldn't get much gameplay!

Still more gameplay than these awful visual novel things people wet themselves over nowadays!

I think they should develop Dragon's Lair for Amiga based on C64 release, not Laser Disc.

I had 1 drive and Willy Beamish and Rise of the Dragon (original) and you had to change disc almost every scene (2-3 times) if i remember well. Unplayable.
Also Indiana Jones Fate of Atlantis had plenty disc swapping.

A lot of the laser disc content was axed from the Amiga release, apparently.
