Dragon 32 (1982 – 1984)

The Dragon 32 (and the later Dragon 64) was a home computer introduced by Dragon Data in 1982 and produced in Wales for the UK market.

The numbers referred to the memory size, 32 KB initially, with a 64 KB version introduced a year later. The graphic capabilities of the Dragon were considered inferior to other home computers of the time such as the ZX Spectrum.

A large number of games were available however, most of which were on Compact Cassette, but some were also available on ROM cartridges. The Dragon 32 was based on the Radio Shack TRS-80 Colour Computer, and many of the cartridges for the TRS-80 also worked on the Dragon.

It was not a commercial success and Dragon Data collapsed in 1984.
