Did You Know?


Many King's Quest fans disapproved of this game, due to the inclusion of combat and action into the game-play, in contrast to the previous seven games in which the player had to explore lands and solve puzzles, but not put up physical fight against opponents. See more »


Connor goes through most of the game armored but without a helmet except at the end, when he wears the Helmet of the Golden Mask. This puts him at a disadvantage in battle because his head is unprotected. See more »

King's Quest Rules
11 October 1999 | by BlueflySee all my reviews

I have always been a King's Quest fan, and this is one of the best KQ games ever. It's just classic. The plot is fun, Connor and the supporting characters are fun, all the puzzles and potions are fun, and even the fights are fun. The easter eggs, by the way, are fun, too.

I understand there was some controversy about making a violent KQ, but compared to what you can find out there today, I really don't think the violence was that important. Mask of Eternity followed in the noble footsteps of its predecessors, keeping with the mind-blowing puzzles and exploration King's Quest has always had.

Congratulations to the KQ team for another beautiful installment! And if this turns out to be the final Quest, well - it was a worthy swansong.
