King Graham is a Bit Lonely
Sir Graham, the hero of the original King's Quest, is now ruler of Daventry. Although the land is at peace, King Graham is lonely. After looking at his magic mirror, he sees a vision of a beautiful woman in distress who just happens to be pretty enough to resuce.
Donning his sword and adventuring hat, the king travels to a far off land, full of danger and surprises, to search for his bride.
High Quality Adventure
King's Quest 2 is a fantastic point and click adventure game. The graphics are great considering it was originally made in 1985. The puzzles are fun and the story has a load of chuckles woven in. Definitely worth the download.

King's Quest 2: Romancing the Throne Review
This sequel to the legendary first release of King's Quest that practically invented the casual point-and-click adventure genre follows in the footsteps of its predecessor as a remarkable journey back in time, only now Sir Graham has become King of Daventry and must embark on a new, more deadly quest....he needs a woman!
Creative Story That Incorporates Fairy Tales (Ogres Not Included)
Lonely in your practically empty castle, a magic mirror reveals a beautiful damsel whom who decide to gallantly rescue from the perils of an evil witch who cursed said maiden to an enchanted tower. Creativity abounds in the fantastical land of Kolyma, primarily in the characters met; talking pumpkins, a big bad wolf and little red riding hood to name a few.
Adventure Game + A Few Chuckles
Most tasks are not cut-and-dry and require some out of the box intellect to solve, such as retrieving a baby bird and placing it in a flock of swans to transform said bird into a beautiful swan. Commentary is also particularly creative, such as the inclusion of a mailbox that, when approached, prompts the explanation “Its a mailbox... You've never seen one... Which isn't surprising as the postal service won't be invented for another several hundred years.”
It will take many hours to reach the conclusion of the game which makes it especially valuable, and the speed at which Graham moves is uncharacteristically rapid which allows for a quicker pace that does not interrupt the overall length of this release.
Old Graphics But Hey, It Was Made in the '80s
The only weak elements are the graphics, which are a product of their 1980s release date, and the background music which tends to be rather dull.
However, neither of these features are terribly bothersome and Romancing The Throne proves an excellent edition to the many King's Quest releases offering a fantastic tale with challenging tasks that will last countless hours.
