Enjoyable cartoon-style adventure. One of the last games in the long-running adventure series, The Princeless Bride takes its inspiration from Disney's animated movies and provides a visually impressive, but ultimately shallow and un-King's Quest-like experience. The plot is the usual innocently enjoyable nonsense that eschews violence in favour of a story highly suited to family audiences who have grown up on The Little Mermaid or The Lion King, and sees players attempting to save the land from the machinations of an evil sorceress. Uniquely for the series, the player switches between two characters and is also divided into chapters, which does interrupt the story's flow somewhat. One feature of particular annoyance to veterans of the series is the simplification of the interface, which now requires players to simply click on the environment in order to interact and solve puzzles. Puzzles wise, there are plenty of challenging ones on display here and despite the game's family-oriented visual style, it isn't as easy as this might suggest. The Princeless Bride is a strange game, one that seems out of sorts with its series, thanks to the overly cute graphics and simple interface, but which is difficult to recommend if you've never played any of the previous games, due to the history of the characters. The game certainly isn't ground-breaking in terms of graphic adventures, not doing anything new with the genre, and often feeling like a movie more than a game. If you can ignore the betrayal of the King's Quest lineage in the graphics and interface, there is some enjoyment to be had here though, with a fun quest that offers plenty of twists and turns. Lucasarts' Monkey Island games might be better for newcomers to the genre though.
A good aventure game for all . This version from the King's quest series is unlike the other versions where you need to play the other ones as well to get a grip on it. In this version, they have brought quite a few changes which have made the game equally good for the new comers and for those who have played this series. In replacement to the eye, hand and talk icon, a single cursor has been introduced which is in the shape of a wand. The cursor will glow when you have any interaction with someone. The first look that you will get might make you feel like the game has become simple but it is surely not the case. The graphics are though cartoonish but are very colorful. The cartoonish graphics do not make the gameplay easy or for children as it involves good amount of adventure that is suited to both youngsters and the grown up ones. The two characters in the game are the princess and the queen. You can play this game with your parents and will really bond you with them. You need to use your thinking throughout the game as it involves logic or you can say some fairytale logic. King's Quest 5 has somewhat the same graphics but this onea is a bit different.
