Top 100 CD-ROMs from PC Magazine 1994

The largest, most puzzling and most exciting chapter in a series that has sold more games than any other. Robby Benson, who gained critical praise for his portrayal of the Beast in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, stars as Prince Alexander, crossing an intricate and dangerous world in his quest to save his true love, Cassima. You'll need all your wits and imagination to overcome the gauntlet of baffling puzzles and fantastic creatures that attempt to keep you from your goal. It includes multiple paths and your choices determine the story's ending.

The story opens with a spectacular 50-meg cartoon created in 3-D rendering by Kronos, the special effects masters who brought you Batman Returns. The dialogue and narration is by international actors and includes accurate lip-synching during conversation. There is also the full audio recording of "Girl in the Tower," the love theme of King's Quest VI.

PC Magazine, September 13, 1997

"King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow continues the saga of the Graham family, as young Alexander seeks the hand of the fair princess Cassima. Though darker and more ominous than earlier quests, the action and production values nevertheless demonstrate how good multimedia adventure games have become.

"A 50MB animated cartoon introduces the quest and ends with Alexander shipwrecked on one of the Green Islands. He quickly learns that Cassima is not only on this very island but betrothed to the wicked Vizier. Of course, adventure and mishap follow as Alex searches for a way to rescue his true love.

"The story is full of the witty and bizarre characters that are hallmarks of King's Quest games. There's a particilple dangling from a tree, a barking dogwood, a head of iceberg lettuce (your need it to cool a steaming pond), and a delightful group of five animated gnomes, each of which specializes in one fo the five senses.

"Sierra has developed a truly friendly user interface. There is nothing to read and nothing to type in the CD-ROM version; all dialog is spoken by professional actors. And by using the point-and-click interface, even a 6-year-old can move through the program with ease."
