25 March 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

As a child of "Quest for the Crown," I grew up on these games and they never got old for me. When "Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow" came out, Sierra could do no wrong. This game is packed with adventure, logic puzzles, mythology, and an enticing plot that absolutely keeps the gamer interested the whole way through. Even at the age of seven I was captivated by the story of Prince Alexander traveling through all the islands, trying to find Princess Cassima. It takes some serious thought to solve all these riddles, making you feel like you're the most brilliant person alive when you do solve them. All in all I've give this game 10 stars, it's one of the best adventure games even made, let alone in its own time.
