King's Quest III: To Heir Is Human




But of all the games I used to play, my favorite was King's Quest III on Atari. I love all sorts of games, but I'm an adventure lover at heart. This one especially, with its combination of excellent artwork, music (not the sound quality but the high quality musical compositions themselves), imaginative and visually rich narrative with a mystical alchemy theme (rose essence oil, anyone?), grabbed me from the start. Too bad I could never finish it; it was a most difficult game, but one that got young people like myself at the time to read (and type out each command)! I hope you'll enjoy the playthrough posted by Yzzyxz on You Tube as much as I did.
