Awesome!
This game is one of the treasures of my childhood. I grew up playing KQ4-7, (They're how I got so good at spelling! What other 5-year-olds could spell "Go Under Bridge"?) and this one is my favorite. It is hilarious, creative, and contains a wonderful fantasy world. The puzzles are tests of lateral-thinking, and the landscape is rife with puns. The characters are memorable, and the storyline is engaging. My favorite part was the Dangling Participle, found on the Isle of the Beast. I also loved to play the labyrinth over and over again, and would imagine myself stalking and being stalked by the minotaur. What more could anyone want?

Trivia

Many items described on the wall of the pawn shop are references to difficult parts of previous games in the series. For example, a "bridge repair kit" (referring to the bridge in King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne (1985) that collapses if it is crossed too many times) and "whale tongue climbing gear" (referring to the whale's tongue in King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella (1988) that is frustratingly difficult to climb).


Quotes

Narrator: Alexander awakens, to find himself on unfamiliar beach. For a moment, he is too dazed to remember how he got here.
Narrator: Then, he does remember, the shipwreck, the sea. Just as he had seen his men safely into the lifeboats, a gigantic wave picked him up ...


Goofs

After Alexander hides behind a pillar from the 2 guard dogs. He hears them talking, then the Narrator informs the player about the woman screaming which Alexander shouts "Cassima!" which would've given Alexander hiding spot away, notified the 2 guard dogs where Alexander is hiding, it would've likely resulted in Alexander getting arrested and thrown in the dungeon and the player would've got a game over message. However the game continues on as normal despite Alexander's accidental yelling as it's possible that Alexander was thinking it in his head and didn't say it out loud knowing the guard dogs would hear.


Alternate Versions

In the 1997 Kings Quest Collection. A Windows 95 version features high resolution graphics portraits of Characters Such as Prince Alexander and other characters, even the icons and items are featured in high detail graphics. However after the end of the voice acting Wedding scene. The game crashes and shows the end credits but it only had the instrumental song "Girl in the Tower" in the Text version end credits. However, this version won't work in the Windows XP or 7 mode.
