The Adventure Of The King’s Quest Epilogue – (Part 9)

So now that I’ve finished dissecting all five chapters it’s time to move on to some of the other minor things that I thought about in the game. Oh wait, there’s another section one section that’s easily overlooked yet still part of the game. That is the epilogue, a short thirty minute section which follows … Continue reading The Adventure Of The King’s Quest Epilogue – (Part 9)

The Disappointing Ending Of King’s Quest Chapter 5 (Part 8)

King’s Quest Chapter 5 ends with a huge showdown against Mannanan and his apprentice but that would be all too easy! You must first prove that Graham in his old age is still up to speed in his thinking by going through some more trials. The first trial brings you through an 8-bit graphic segment … Continue reading The Disappointing Ending Of King’s Quest Chapter 5 (Part 8)

Destroying A Well Established World – King’s Quest Chapter 5 (part 7)

Whilst I still found king’s quest chapter 5 a disappointment, I would have considered it a step in the right direction for the game if it came (with a story that made sense) at chapter 3. The reason why this improves is due to the fact that you regain the open world from Daventry or … Continue reading Destroying A Well Established World – King’s Quest Chapter 5 (part 7)

How To Make A Puzzle Game Based Around Just One puzzle – King’s Quest (part 6)

Previously I looked at the first 45 minutes of chapter 4 and I will now continue to explain how the game becomes one massive, boring, ice puzzle. If I was to say that the middle section of the game had 12 puzzles inside it wouldn’t that sound like a lot? The answer is yes however … Continue reading How To Make A Puzzle Game Based Around Just One puzzle – King’s Quest (part 6)

How You Shouldn’t Deliver Exposition– King’s Quest (part 5)

In my series of rant posts against this game I’ve noticed one thing that seems prevalent in most of them. That is a boring intro puzzle sequence which could easily be explained in one or two sentences (as I will demonstrate) and chapter 4 is no exception. The game takes well over 15 minutes to … Continue reading How You Shouldn’t Deliver Exposition– King’s Quest (part 5)

Why King’s Quest Doesn’t Use Linear Puzzles Effectively (King’s Quest part 4)

In the last part I wrote about how I disliked the introduction to king’s quest chapter three and I will continue to be talking about more things that I disliked, continuing from the point in the game where I left off. I can’t help but feel like you’re railroaded into choosing who you want as … Continue reading Why King’s Quest Doesn’t Use Linear Puzzles Effectively (King’s Quest part 4)

How To Ruin An Introduction – King’s Quest (part 3)

King’s quest chapter 3, once upon a climb is far worse than any chapter that came before it. As the 3rd chapter it was meant to mark the tone and future of the next chapters as they lead up to the next conflict. No such thing happened. If you have been following along with these … Continue reading How To Ruin An Introduction – King’s Quest (part 3)
