1. Introduction

=====================================================================

Welcome to my Kings Quest 2 FAQ! The purpose of this FAQ is to help you through this 
old, but still great adventure game. This guide is split into nine different 
sections:

- The Introduction: The introduction to this guide.

- Copyright Information: The small, yet important section on copyright information.

- My Review: A description of the game. No hints or tips are given away here.

- The Guide: A short, but detailed guide on how to get all the points in the game. 
The guide is very basic, but was intended to be that way as it's easier to read and 
follow.

- Point Listing: Just a list on what parts of the game give you points.

- Frequently Asked Questions: The main part of this FAQ. It covers most questions 
that people would ask about the game.

- Easter Eggs: This sections covers secrets that probably weren't meant to be found 
in the game.

3. My Review

=====================================================================

Graphics - 8/10

At first looks, the graphics haven't improved much over Kings Quest I. They look the 
same as the original, however they have been improved greatly. For a start, there 
seems to be more detail put into still objects, such as trees and objects to pick 
up. There is actually animation in things other than just the characters. At the 
start of the game, you are standing near a beach, and you can see a wave break 
against the rocks. Naturally, after playing on the PlayStation for a bit, the 
graphics do lose their appeal, but try and remember what it must have been like when 
this game was first released. People were stunned by the graphics, which are in 3D. 
People were even more stunned when they saw that you could actually walk about the 
locations, and even walk behind and in front of objects.

Sound - 6/10

Unfortunately, the sound hasn't improved at all from Kings Quest I. It's still the 
same annoying beep boopity beep boop, repetitive annoying tone coming somewhere from 
within the depths of the PC. If you find the sound too annoying, you can simply turn 
the sound off by pressing F2. Actually, once you know about this function key, you 
might even leave the sound on so you can hear what people actually had to put up 
with.

Gameplay - 9/10

Ah, the gameplay has been much improved over the original! For a start, there are 
more points to get. 185 of them in all, which definitely improves over the measly 
158 points of the original. In order to get these points, you have to complete a 
series of puzzles. The puzzles can be as simple as picking up a shell, or as 
difficult as trying to find a magic carpet to fly above the clouds. The annoying 
speed factor has been much improved. In the original, the only speeds selectable 
were slow, normal and fast. Slow was unbearably slow, normal was far too slow, and 
fast was... well, just too fast. In Kings Quest II, things have been much improved. 
You have the choices of walking slow, medium, fast or fastest, and it definitely 
improves the gameplay having all these different choices of speed to choose from. 
The puzzles are set at about just the right level, and are far easier than the 
devious puzzles of the original. The game still uses the old typing interface, 
seeing as there was no mouse invented at the time this game was released. The old 
typing interface was far more annoying to use than most of the point-and-click 
adventure games, and usually would involve you typing in simple sentences such 
as "climb tree" or "get shell". As you make your way through the strange lands, you 
will see all manner of objects and characters with which you can interact. The game 
is non-linear, meaning that you don't have to follow a strict and certain path. And 
another aspect of what makes the game so good is trying to find all the points (185 
is the most you can get). When you complete the game for the first time, it's 
unlikely that you will find all the points, as there are many ways to complete this 
game. This game has great gameplay as there is just so much to do!

Lastability - 8/10

Kings Quest II is much more simple than the original, but it is also a bigger game, 
with much more to do. Whenever you accomplish a certain important task in the game, 
you will get points added to your overall score. There are 185 points to find in 
total, and finding every single point is very difficult. For this reason, it's 
likely that your score isn't going to be 185/185 straight away, so you'll probably 
want to go back and try and find things that will get you more points. By the 2nd 
game, you might have maximum points. By the 3rd game, you'll have probably found out 
that there's still a lot more to do in the game besides getting maximum points. By 
the 4th game, you might have found just about everything. And from then on, you'll 
probably just play the game for the fun of it!

Overall - 8/10

The graphics have been much improved over the original, and there is now animation 
on things, such as the waves breaking against the rocks. The sounds unfortunately 
haven't improved, and there are still the same annoying speaker sounds which ruin 
the atmosphere of the game. The gameplay is good, as there is so much to do. The 
typing interface has been improved, and now understands many more words that you 
type. And the lastability has also been improved. Although slightly easier than the 
original, Kings Quest II is definitely the larger game. Overall, a good game which 
slightly improves on the original.
