King's Quest I. (game software) (evaluation)
by Tom Campbell

A classic game, King's Quest now boasts a new, easier-to-use interface that hasn't upset the game's balance. It only enhances by eliminating the drudgery of keyboard control. To find out about an object, just point at it and click the right mouse button. To move the hero, Sir Graham, you merely need to click on the desired location, and Graham obligingly moves in that direction. And while KQ's graphics are no longer state-of-the-art, the soundtrack and overall quality of the game are still remarkable. In sum--bravo! King's Quest has been given a new lease on life.
