Summary

Instant Classic! One of the best King's Quests ever created!

The Good

Everything about this game is entertaining, the graphics and sounds are much improved from KQ5 and Roberta has once again, successfully created and placed you in a weird Alice In Wonderland kind of fantasy land. I still pull this game out every once in awhile to replay it because of it timelessness. Sierra continued to use the point and click interface that worked very well with KQ5. Basically, I love everything about this game. The storyline, the graphics, the sound, the gameplay, the environment and atmosphere. Totally classic Roberta Williams, excellent 6th installment of the King's Quests series!

The Bad

Absolutely nothing! Aside from the usual having to refer to the manual for in-game copy protections, the game is flawless. I did experience some event-trigger bugs but usually after reloading and tripping the event again, it would work.

The Bottom Line

One of the most fun and entertaining King's Quests ever created.. If you enjoyed any other of the King's Quests, this one will not let you down. Full of fun puzzles and characters to interact with, this game will forever be a classic!
