Quest to remember
In this past decade there were many narrative games but few that captured like king’s quest fairy tale lore despite the goofiness. It is not a perfect game where some episodes are better than the others so I’ll review each episode aside.
First episode was the biggest and best one where it was nearly six hours gameplay and built the world with great foundation. Also it had the set up of fairy tales tropes such as trolls, knights, goblins and dragons which was great. Second episode was the weakest one since it did not provide any real progress for the story and most of the time wasted in running from one area to the next. Adding to it for this episode some puzzles were illogical that depended on trail and error which made me not care about saving the characters or the plot.
Third episode was charming since the plot depended on choosing your princess aka queen which was charming and added more depth to the characters. Fourth episode had very little story progress and an out of the blue event with many puzzles to solve that felt tiresome after a while. Final episode was a great conclusion both on emotional and story wise aspect although the last part was a bit underwhelming. As for the epilogue it really didn’t add anything new and it was too short.
To conclude, it is a unique adventure game with some highs and lows that prevented it from achieving perfection.
