Game Review

King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!, the fifth chapter of the famous fantasy adventure series created by Roberta Williams, was released in 1990 for MS-DOS, Amiga, Macintosh and other platforms.

The game marked an important milestone for Sierra, since it was the first one introducing full 256 colors VGA graphics, with hand painted background, and also the first one with icon based controls instead of the text parser. Finally it was the first Sierra game to be released in CD-ROM, with full voiceover.

The game was a great success, with more than 500k copies sold.
