4 1/2 stars from PC Entertainment

Based on a classic African folk tale, Imo and the King is the story of a courageous boy named Imo who sets out to become the King's successor. As his adventure unfolds, Imo learns an important life lesson - all kind acts are rewarded with kindness.

King Azizi seeks a prince to rule his kingdom after he is gone, and so sets forth a series of three tests that his successor must pass: change a pile of seeds into stones, chop down a tree with one blow from his hand, and pick out the King's daughter from a crowd of identically dressed girls. Eager to prove himself worthy, Imo sets off on a journey to the King's village, and along the way has three chance encounters that reveal his noble character.

Will Imo pass all the King's tests? Follow along on his quest to fulfill the royal challenge - a crowning moment that will live in your heart forever.

Reviews:

PC Entertainment, February 1996

"Imo and the King, an African folktale in the Magic Tales series is a fully animated story that was created especially for the computer - and it shows. The rich graphics and animation will fool kids into thinking they're watching a Saturday-morning cartoon when the stories are in Read mode. In Play mode, the story stops at each screen, so that kids can uncover the multitude of clever hot spots on each page."

"This disk boasts excellent scores and delightful songs. Kids will be enchanted."
