Quester

So I downloaded King's Quest 1 from yesterday's post, and have been playing for a while now. So far, I've obtained 89 out of 158 points, but have hit a dead end. The game is pretty true to the original and I think all of the riddles are the same as the original as well. Unfortunately my memory isn't as good as it used to be so I'm spending a lot of time just wandering around looking for clues. I've gotten now to the point where I'm slightly bit frustrated, especially when I was just reminded that there are two other King's Quest to go after this one. Ah well. The point of this post was to say that yes, I have tried the download from yesterday, it works, and the game is pretty true to the original. So all you adventurer, nostalgia type gamers, this might be a good one to try, especially if you're thinking about testing your patience.

There were six or seven King's Quest games, actually. I managed to collect them and now have no floppy drive whatsoever. Sigh.

I just googled and saw that yes, it goes up to 6 and 7. I never made it past 3 on the floppy drives. For now I'm going with the free versions and then when I get my new computer, I'll think about getting some "real" games...
