King’s Quest Heir Today gone Tomorrow review

King’s Quest VI gameplay from Youtube

King’s quest VI Heir Today gone tomorrow is a great game I have completed, enjoyable from the introduction to completion in the castle. Developed with Sierra in 1992 written and produced by Roberta Williams, it is a point and click adventure with cinematography elements. It has a classic VGA graphics interface was developed from creative artists and programmers. The actor Robby Benson voiced Prince Alexander the main character in the game who interestingly was auditioned for the role of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars film.

Other notable characters in the film are Pawn shop owner, the Ferryman and Captain Saladin which guide Alexander throughout his quest to reunite with the royal family and Princess Cassima. There are interesting moments with Bill Ratner as the Narrator speaking about moments and encounters with Alexander among the different locations of the land of the green isles. There are different puzzles quests with cryptic codes at the Isle of the Mountain. The menu interface has inventory options for interaction with classic walk and talk options similar to Monkey Island.

The Isle of the Crown is the main island on the magic map given to Alexander in trade during the adventure which has an Arabian theme. Isle of Wonder has magical gnomes which all have different senses reacting from inventory items. The Isle of the Sacred Mountain is inspired from ancient mythology and religion. Isle of the Beast however has a deep forest environment, with ice lettuce required to cool the warm pond for Alexander to cross passage. The last and hidden isle of mists is occupied by the druid tribesmen.

Overall, I would recommend this classic adventure game, interesting dialogue and colourful visual backgrounds similar to early cinema from decades ago. A reboot was recently developed portraying his father King Graham. Enjoyable as a 2D video game with greater elements than modern titles.
