Prince Alexander of Daventry (Robbie Benson) travels to a kingdom of islands after he sees the distressed image of the lady he loves, Princess Cassima, in a magic mirror. He arrives to find all of the islands fighting, Cassima locked away, her parents killed, and everything is under the hand of an evil vizir. In order to rescue both the princess and her home, Alexander must reunite the islands and find a way into the castle before Cassima is forced to marry the vizir. Written by Max Vaughn

Did You Know?


The song from the game, "Girl in the Tower", performed by Bob Bergthold and Debbie Seibert and written by Mark Seibert and Jane Jensen, was requested to be played on radio stations across the United States so much that some stations threatened to sue Sierra On-Line. See more »


On the minimum path, when Alexander is in the alcove in the castle hallway, the pillar and the right wall is reflected on the floor, but there is no reflection of Alexander on the floor. Same thing applies for the portrait if it's on the floor. See more »


Grovernor: [after Alexander winds and plays the mechanical nightingale] A nose is not a way to spy! / My ears cannot be told a lie / A nightingale is all there be / No man is near, and so say me!

This is the best one of the King's Quest games. My friend and I will spend all day playing it, watching it unfold like a movie. The characters are different. There is such a wide variety of people and creatures you could never be bored. The puzzles are great. Going to the Isle of the Sacred Mountain is one of the best adventures. Everything is so well thought out and creative (and I mean creative as in, yes, the idea has been done before, but the way it is done is terrific). Plus, it's funny to try and image Robby Benson saying "Zounds".
