Title: Kings Quest NES games
Post by: jewelkid87 on July 27, 2007, 10:44:49 AM
Hey - I was just searching ebay for kings quest and noticed their is kings quest for nintendo. I never knew that. Is it the same as pc? I always thught kings quest was strictly pc. I can't see it working the same way on a nintendo. It makes me want to buy it just because it seems like it would be different.  ???

I believe King's Quest V was made for both PC and NES, but the graphics on the NES were very poor in comparison.  I'm not sure how well the controls worked on the NES either.

I believe that they also have KQ1 for the Master System.  At least, I've played it, anyway.

I've been interested in trying out all of these other versions of King's Quest. I remember searching either google or Wikipedia about something, and there popped up KQ5 for the NES. I never knew that a console version of it existed until then. And I think that was like a year or two ago.

Check out the KQ Omnipedia (http://www.sq7.org/KQ/index.php/Main_Page). It says what systems each game was released on.

Thank you Elessar, I'll have to check that out later! If I could, I would definitely own the NES version of KQV just for the fun of it, but I do not own an NES. I used to have a SNES, but I sold it...

Sold your Super NES --- how could you ---  :o ---  :P --- just kidding sort of --- glad I still have mine and it is even still hooked up to the television along with Playstation 2, VCR and the original NES at my folks house --- just a 27 inch Panasonic televsion so nothing really special --- no 5.1 digital sound or any of that fancy jazz --- grin

I sold my SNES for more money mainly, but I know a place to buy them at any time. And I'm keeping it my little secret so that no one goes and buys the stuff that I inevitably will eventually... XD

There is a guy who put together a website called VirtualNES.  KQV was one of the games on there so I played it out of curiosity and yeah the PC version was better.  Anyways VNES is basically a website where you can play old NES games via Java.  I won't post a link since I am not sure of the legality of it but I think it is legal.  After all nintendos probably are only available through e-bay or garage sales so at this point the company wouldn't be losing money on it.

There is a store in my neck of the woods that sells all of the old systems. They're all trade-ins from people, and they sell all of the systems (even a virtual boy!). I've seen everything there! It's a great store, and the best part is that it's not part of a big chain (or any chain for that matter... XD) I will probably google that virtual NES thing, see how good it is...
