King's Quest I is set in the land of Daventry, where King Edward the Benevolent
is ill. He summons his most loyal Knight Graham to castle, and explains that he
has little time left to live. He mentions three treasures that were lost long
ago: A mirror that can tell the future, a magical shield that protects the
bearer from harm, and an enchanted chese that was always filled with gold. The
king hopes that with the treasures found, Daventry may return to the wonderful
place it used to be. The king explains that if the treasures are found, Graham
will take his place as King of Daventry. Graham accepts, and sets off into the
land of Daventry to find the three lost treasures.
This superb VGA remake of the classic 1983 original is very impressive. The
graphics have been given a noteable upgrade and look absolutely stunning in
places, while the control system has changed from text based (where commands
had to be typed) to a newer icon based system that was first seen in King's
Quest V. Anyone who has played the original will only encounter some minor
differences in gameplay here, but the visual and audio differences are huge. A
speech pack can even be downloaded to further immerse players in this fantasy
world. This game is freely available from https://www.agdinteractive.com/, and I
highly recommended it to all fans of adventure games.
The game starts outside the castle. West. West. Walk behind the small rock and

above the bucket to get the bucket.
Use the crank to lower the rope into the well. Use the rope to climb down it,
then click the water to drop into it. Use the water again to dive down below
the surface. Swim into the hole at the top-left corner of this area and use the
path to get out of the water. Use the bucket with the water to fill it, then
walk west to arrive in the cave of a dragon. Use the bucket of water with the
dragon to douse the fire, causing the cave to fill with smoke. Get the mirror.
