Enter once again the magical kingdom of Eldritch and join Princess Rosella in her quest for adventure. In the animated feature King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride, played from third-person perspective, series creator Roberta Williams puts you in the role of not just one onscreen persona, but two. You'll play as both Rosella and her mother, Valanice, as you strive to thwart the evil doings of the enchantress Malicia.
It seems as if Malicia has plans of her own, namely, devastation of all four lands in the kingdom. Her plan is to cover the landscapes in hot lava from an erupting volcano and you must not only help Rosella escape the prison of dark magic that engulfs her but hunt down and stop the evil witch in the process. During your quests you'll visit Desert Land, The Troll Underground, Etheria and Oogaboogaland.
The story is played out in chapters as you alternate control between the two main characters with each chapter ending in a cliffhanger. King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride features more than 100 melodies and original compositions, a huge mix of characters ranging from odd to delightful and a lighthearted storyline designed to be full of enchanting gameplay and humor. The game is a stand-alone product and, although it builds on familiar characters and themes, does not require you to have played earlier games in the series. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
