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

Many items described on the wall of the pawn shop are references to difficult parts of previous games in the series. For example, a "bridge repair kit" (referring to the bridge in King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne
(1985) that collapses if it is crossed too many times) and "whale tongue climbing gear" (referring to the whale's tongue in King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella
(1988) that is frustratingly difficult to climb). See more
