Game Review

King's Quest III: To Heir is Human is the third chapter of the popular graphic adventure series written and designed by Roberta Williams and published by Sierra On-Line.

King's Quest 3 was released in 1986 for MS-DOS, then later ported to Amiga, Atari ST, Apple IIgs, and other platforms. Unfortunately, the original PC graphics were not improved when ported to Amiga. Apart from this, the game is really ambitious, much bigger, and complex that the previous two. The atmosphere is also a bit darker, with black magic playing an essential role in the plot. Roberta Williams admitted that for the first time, she was able to make the game she wanted; during the development of the first two, she was limited by the memory and disk space of the 8-bit computers. A useful auto-mapping feature was also added.

Interestingly, Al Lowe was the lead programmer for this game. After this, he would start working on Leisure Suit Larry.

King's Quest 3 is considered one of the best of the series, and one of the most influential videogames of all time. Don't miss it.
