DescriptionRoberta Williams' King's Quest I: Quest for the Crown
is a remake of King's Quest
. It uses Sierra's 16-color SCI game interpreter, making it visually similar to the series' fourth
installment, with more detailed EGA full-screen graphics and optional mouse support, while retaining text-based input and interaction. This version also has a musical score that supports sound cards, as opposed to the speaker-only output of the original release.
Several changes have been made to the game's locations and script. A few new characters appear in the remake, and some of the conversations feature additional lines. A number of puzzles have slightly different solutions, and some objects are found in different places than they were in the original version.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
There is a severe bug in KQ1 (the remake) that causes your character sprite to "fall" into the river and keep on falling--off the bottom of the screen, looping back to the top, endlessly. You have to reboot to get out of the game when this happens.
