King's Quest 5: Absence Makes the Heart go Yonder!

Sierra 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Graham the King comes back in one of the best known Sierra's sagas. King's Quest V – Absence makes the heart go yonder was the very first game to be released in languages other than English. This is something that sounds normal today, but back in the 90s was incredible news for graphic adventure fans all over the world. English was a real issue for me and my brothers as kids. "To drop"?? Oh my God, what do they mean? What do they want from me, to enjoy playing a game or are they trying to make me learn something??

The royal Mystics don't have a clue what to do (that rhymes ;). But fortunately, a giant hand has obviously experienced this phenomenon before: someone needs to retrieve the anchor stone from the center of the world.

The Colonel's Bequest

Sierra 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
What’s up with the testosterone overdose in Sierra games? Most of their games only have playable male characters. There are some exceptions of course, like King's Quest IV, in which you control Princess Rosella, as well as several Leisure Suit Larry games, in which you can control (although briefly) Passionate Patti. Luckily this time, Sierra sure managed to please the ladies! It’s high time for some additional girl power with this mystery detective adventure game called The Colonel's Bequest.
