AGS Panel Review
"A 100% faithful remake of the original game, it therefore suffers from the same poor storyline and unexpected deaths, but it does feature original artwork and soundtrack."
14 people commented on this game (newest first):
only 1 small glitch where moving wouldnt work, and some stopping at the edge of the screen, nothing bothersome.
overall was very well done with detailed screens and kept the origional feel, a great port over from typing to point and click. (i have all of them, and this was as good or better than any of the KQI's I've played)
It's a shame it hadn't been tested for the larger screen size (the smaller one was just too tiny for me) as it crashed quite a lot (usually on the "restart/restore/quit" dialog when I'd just died). The route to the creature that has the chest (no spoilers here), once you have created it, is only visible after you stop walking into the room that contains it, rather than as soon as the game switches to that room.
But it's a very good game, in spite of the flaws. The work that has gone into the backgrounds, animations and extended cutscenes is truly amazing.
I like the idea of having to use brain over brawn. You can, if you choose, flail your way to the end of the game, killing everything in sight, but you'll get a much higher final score if you use more cunning means to achieve your aims.
Only one thing: there isnt a treasure sequence, first this and then this one, you choose randomly, so the storyline value decreases a bit.
It feels exactly the same as I played it on the Amiga many years ago. But this time it has greater graphics.
Anybody who haven't played Kings Quest I should download this game right now. And for those who have played the game, download this if you, once more, want to get back to the kingdom of Daventry.
