Yes, this is great.

I've been searching around the internet for who knows how long and just can't find a downloadable "enhanced version" from 1990. If someone has an idea, I'd like to know.

I must say that I definately preferred the remake from the 90s, 'cause the graphics were so much better. But I didn't like the fact that the remakers had changed the storyline, even if only a little.
All the KQs are fantastic, ┬┤though the dead-end situations are truly annoying. I just finished KQ8 and was so disappointed 'cause the game had come so far away from the original fairy-tale adventures.
Happy holidays!

I have played this game since 1986 and I've been hooked ever since. You just can't beat a classic like this. I would love to see it released again in its original format and not in the 1990 remake format.

Hey, I definetly agree with your opinion. King's Quest I isn't exactly an action packed game, but it is a classic and worth playing. I think the same about the other King's Quests and also other games made by Sierra such as Gold Rush (1987-1991). I played all of those games when I was a kid in elementary school at California.
