Be warned, before playing this game, you will die, a lot. Then you'll decide to look up a guide online. Save yourself some trouble and look up the guide in the beginning, at least until you can beat the evil wizard. This is the hardest game in the King's Quest series with the most difficult puzzles. Don't let this be your introduction to the series. I'd recommend King's Quest six and go back in time from there to five, then either one or number four, next two. Save three for last, unless you're playing one of the fan remakes. The original version is one of the last to use the text interface where you have to directly type out what you want to do. This can be very problematic if you use the wrong word and it isn't recognized, or if you're not a native English speaker. Overall, it's a nice small side story that fills in some gaps to Daventry's royal family. This game is only for the most hardcore of King's Quest fans. Unlike King's Quest eight, this game actually does have some ties to the rest of the series.
