NOT abandonware (why?)


"King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne may be better titled King's Quest I: Part II. It is possible that the overreaction to the success of the first game has prompted a design decision by Williams and her team to deliver a nearly identical game, in order to quickly give the fans more of exactly what the company has perceived them to have wanted. Luckily for the adventure genre, the series has not remained stagnant and proceeds to break revolutionary new ground with its next sequels. However, gamers who are tracing the evolution of graphic adventure games back through the King's Quest series are not going miss much by giving this one a pass." - Adventure Classic Gaming
