Taking control of Irresponsible Dad, the son in usual cliche manner complains to his father, which dad promptly dismisses. In front is a Porsche 911 with two women french-kissing on the car boot and a voyeurist snapping a picture of the scene. Before the dad-son duo make it across the wooden bridge behind the pervert, a flash of lightning and thunder teleports them into a picturesque marshy landscape.

The level funnels the player through a cavern, to the outside world and off a cliff. Either ways, the player will find themselves at the scene of a village massacre, with bodies strewn about over the place. By the waterside, comes some of the only exposition in the level; A blurb appears when you approach a statue, denoting it as the villagers' god, who will "only awaken when it's the right time". A survivor lying in front of the statue pleads for you to defeat the 'Dragon'. The player then makes their way across a piranha infested waterway to the next area of the level.

Further forwards, one encounters some impaled dragonlings, and an entrance to a cavern behind. Reach the bottom of the caverns and the player will reach the boss fight area, in battle with the purple 'Dragon' the survivor mentioned. The battle mostly consists of a routine of dodging falling stalactites and rushing at the boss. The stalactites are relatively easy to avoid, the player being forewarned by exclamation marks, but they do pitifully little damage to the purple dragon. After three volleys of falling stalactites and only a little chipped off the boss's healthbar, an elf crashes into the caverns riding a dragon in the likeness of the statue by the waterside. Said dragon promptly incinerates the boss in a breath of fire and ends the level.


  • If the player does not immediately go into the caverns to fight the final boss, he can go forwards to find a scantily clad Elf, presumably offer her 'services' for 45 monetary units.
  • In the caverns en route to the Purple dragon, there's a small flower with blue petals and a smiley face.
  • Also in the caverns on the way to the Purple dragon, there is a headless corpse. Unlike the other bodies in the village, the body will make various viscera sounds when driven over.
