Trivia

Many of the puzzles have more than one solution. For instance: if the player fails to correctly guess the gnome's name, the gnome will give a key for the door in the mountain instead of the magic beans. The difference between the alternative solutions is the number of points awarded for them. See more »

Goofs

King Graham is depicted as walking on the tree branch where the nest with the golden egg is even though when he falls off the dialog in the box says that he has "lost his grip on the tree branch." This inconsistency is repeated in the two later versions of the same game. See more »

Classic. The adventure that started it all.
23 March 2001 | by (Gansbaai, South Africa) – See all my reviews

When Ken and Roberta Williams decided to create an adventure game for the Personal Computer, they decided on King's Quest. And they couldn't have made a better choice. As this was the game that started it all.

King's Quest was followed by seven sequels, and fantasy adventure games are now plenteous. And although I did not enjoy this game as much as it's sequels, and even though it's crude when compared to today's standards, this was the game that started quality gaming.
