User Summary: You must travel into an underground complex and retrieve a valuable golden dragon. There are two catches, however.... First, you can't touch the dragon unless you find its gemstone eyes. Second, you will die from a slow-acting poison unless you retrieve the item within two weeks and exchange some of the money you get from selling it for an antidote.
Demian's Thoughts:

This odd little adventure, which has nothing to do with the Golden Dragon Fantasy Gamebook of the same title, isn't brilliant but is still fairly enjoyable. The sections are short, the plot barely even exists and success depends largely on your initial statistic rolls. Still, with a bit of persistance (and mapping), it's not terribly hard to win. This is a nice game to play when you're short on time. As far as I can tell, no further "Fantasy Quest" adventures were produced.
