After his family went through multiple adventures, King Graham has finally settled into enjoying the peace that envelops Daventry. However, one day when he is strolling through the woods, something envelops his own castle and family and whirls it away. A dark wizard named Mordack did this deed for revenge, but Graham doesn't know what he could've done to him to incite such hatred. Luckily, an owl named Cedric saw the whole thing and offers to take Graham to Serenia where he can seek help out from the kind wizard Crispin. Together, Graham and Cedric must travel through burning deserts, icy mountains, and across deep oceans to Mordack's fearsome castle to save his family! Use your brains instead of brawn, and perhaps Graham will succeed. Written by Kaze Taco

Did You Know?


In the summer of 1990, Sierra's InterAction magazine ran a contest called "Be a character in King's Quest V". Entrants had to submit photos of themselves in clothing that would fit in with the King's Quest world. The winners Amanda Logue and Austin Hartman became the characters "Amanda" and her son "Austin"; customers Graham briefly meets in the Baker Bros. Bakehouse, and were featured in a one-page photo spread in a subsequent InterAction issue. Amanda and Austin do not appear in the NES version of the game. See more »


Graham can talk to Prince Herbert after talking to his fiancée, Alicia (the princess who was turned into a weeping willow). But Graham will still tell Herbert, regardless of having encountered Alicia and learning of her predicament, that he hasn't seen or heard of anyone like her. See more »

Dying for a drink, Graham?
19 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most memorable and quotable computer games ever. I grew up on the King's Quest, Space Quest, and Hero's Quest (AKA Quest For Glory) classic series by Sierra entertainment. Kings Quest V is undoubtedly one of the funniest ones too. The lengthy portion of the game involving searching through the desert is pretty tiresome (and pretty reminiscent of Quest for Glory 2) but it pays off hilariously upon discovering the encampment full of arabs with Mexican accents! "Who are you??!?" asks a sleepy arab, seconds before he ruthlessly stabs you. Cedric the Owl provides the most amusement as the annoying owl who follows you around, keenly pointing out "Watch out for that cliff, Graham!" AFTER you've fallen off the side. You CAN get your revenge on Cedric though later in the game on Harpy island where you carry the wounded Cedric to safety... there's the option to tumble off a cliff with him still in your hands. A pretty cheesy, but a very humorous and classic computer game.
