Dragon Computers were produced in Europe by Dragon Data, Ltd and in the US by Tano beginning in 1982. The 2 models which made it to market were the Dragon 32 and Dragon 64, popular until their discontinuation in 1984. The software library is extensive for these computers but they suffered from inferior graphics to the models of the time, notable the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore’s 64 and Acrorn’s BBC Micro. Similar in operating system to Tandy’s Extended Basic, the Dragons are thought to be closets to the TRS-80 Color Computer. And despite it’s shortcomings, the Dragon stayed popular for home use because of their spacious casing which allowed users to modify their units. Oddly the British government chose the Dragon 32 in a scheme to get farmer’s to use computers and Dragon 32’s with a software package aimed in helping farmers manage their cattle herds were sold to that community. The scheme was referred to as Farm Fax. Below is a general list of Dragon software, by all means not exhaustive- for extensive games and emulator info go to Dragon32Universe!
