The best of the King's Quest series.
25 March 2001 | by (Gansbaai, South Africa) – See all my reviews

The third installment in the King's Quest series of computer games is undoubtably the best. Although the graphics is crude in comparison to today's mind-blowing 3D adventures, and the game is mercylessly difficult at some points, the writing and interesting characters is more than enough to keep you coming back for more.

The story is simple: You play Graham, The crown prince of Daventry. Unfortunately he was kidnapped by the evil wizard Manhanan when he was an infant. Since then he was forced to work against his will for the evil wizard, cooking, cleaning or whatever. Now, a long time later, you decide to escape, and claim your kingdom. There's just one little problem. It's not that easy.

Now you have to travel across the land searching for items to use in your quest for freedom. Your travels lead to an unneccesary copyright protection issue, a few spells that you have to brew up. The only bad thing about it is that not even a full stop may be out of place, or else you turn into a cat or something.

But not even this can contradict the fact that this is without a doubt the best "King's Quest" ever made. Check it out! Just make sure you've got a copy of a walkthrough for it.
