When King's Quest 1 first appeared, the novelty of its animation system was one of its main attractions. Sierra has not stood still since then, and, whilst continuing the same background theme in subsequent King's Quests, it has steadily improved its techniques and tricks, to produce this, Kings Quest IV, which I rank as its finest game to date.
On finira par croire que la série des King Quest est, comme le bon vin, plus elle prend de l'âge, meilleure elle devient. En effet, comme dans les précédents épisodes, le programme nous plonge dans un monde féerique peuplé de sorcières et de créatures mythiques.
Så går då historian om Sir Graham och hans familj vidare. Denna gång är det den vackra dottern Rosella som fått huvudrollen (Därav underrubriken The Perils of Rosella).
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Despite these minor quibbles, KQ4 proves to be a challenging game where you will need to be totally painstaking in your examination of and interaction with every location feature in order to make headway. Of all the game, it comes closest in spirit to a traditional fantasy adventure - the only drawback being that some might find just a bit TOO traditional.

Zwei der neuen Sierra-Adventures liegen jetzt auch für den ST vor; die Amiga-Umsetzungen folgen in Kürze. Grafisch und spielerisch sind sie mit den MS-DOS EGA-Versiorien identisch, die wir in POWER PLAY 3/89 testeten. Beide Abenteuerspiele machen Spaß, der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist niedrig.
