King's Quest 3: To Heir is Human

Finally some improvement is shown by putting some effort into the art and focussing on a better character than Graham, the Sprite White Knight; we are now a mistreated wizard's apprentice on a quest to escape our evil master. Doesn't help that much, though. This game also supports my growing theory that Daventry has no population besides the royal family, since their princess gets kidnapped by a dragon and no-one seems to give a shit.

Point of Maximum Bullshit: There's a bit where you have to type extremely specific phrases to create magic spells, and you die if you so much as mistype a single character. And it's hard to concentrate when the PC speaker music is trying to murder your eardrums like a harpoon gun with an air horn tied to it.
