Game Review

Written and designed by Roberta Williams, King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella is the fourth game in the King's Quest series, and it was released in 1998 for PC. The Amiga and Atari ST versions were published in 1990.

It's the first game of the series with a female protagonist (Rosella), and it was also the first to use the new "SCI" engine created by Sierra-On-Line for their graphics adventures. The new engine made much better graphics possible compared to King's Quest III: To Heir is Human and all the older chapters. One significant difference was the screen resolution of 320x200 pixels instead of 160x200.

Another new feature was the day and night cycle, with some actions only possible during the night and vice versa. The music for the game was created by William Goldstein, the composer of the musical Fame.

    @Brian are you playing on Mac or Windows? The windows package has been recently updated. You can also try the DOS version instead of the Amiga one if you want.

    Making progress in the game, but after getting the fruit near the snake, I get a message that it's become night and it just freezes on the message. There is no way to continue to game.
