- Grandmother, what big eyes you have!
- Because I'm a troll, my child.

No, I'm not mistaken with the fairytale – this is what Rosella, young princess of Daventry kingdom, could say one day if you won't help her escape a troll's marriage. She didn't want to get married, but you can't trick the fate: poor girl has fallen into enchanted pond, and now the one who wants to marry her – the king of trolls.

Her mother, Valanice of Daventry, must find and save her daughter, so she jumps into the pond, following Rosella. But where did she land? The giant vortex threw Valanice into some desert with ancient buildings around and no signs of people. Only a golden comb reminds the queen of her beloved child.

Some strange furry creature ran past her – maybe it could lead her somewhere? Following that "rabbit", she discovers a huge stone head with a door in its mouth – a locked door, of course. There are some paintings on the rocks – I wonder, what do they mean? Another mystery to solve, everything is getting more and more complicated. And by the way, Valanice should find some fresh water – it is a desert, after all.

But Valanice and Rosella will not fulfill their journey without your help. With them, you'll visit several magical countries, on earth and on heaven, meet were-bears and mummies, make friends with dead ones, defeat evil witches and maybe even touch the moon!

This quest-style game continues the series of noble stories by Roberta Williams, with interesting plot, beautiful high resolution graphics and many puzzles, humor and fun. There are six chapters of story, in each of them you play for Rosella or Valanice, and can complete them in any order.

Comparing to other games in King's Quest series, 7th part has some advantages: you play for two characters in one game (and by the way, for the first and only time in the series, they both are women); it's one of the first Sierra quests with SVGA graphics - it looks pretty good even today. It is the adventure you'll definitely not regret.

My memories of trying this are limited to playing this woman in green walking at snail's pace through an endless desert which I immediately got lost in and died. Typical Sierra stuff that far :pain:

That's a bit unfair, because as far as I know this was the first Sierra game in which you couldn't get stuck. So death was more like an extended 'I can't do this' message, even telling you why you should reconsider your actions.

It's also the game that moved my parents to finally buy a Sound Blaster, so I have kind of a soft spot for it. :D
