Despite this, many people regarded this sequel as being the King’s Quest game most in need of an update. Players were generally discontented, believing the puzzles did not vary widely from the previous game and that the storyline was sparse. Additionally, as with King’s Quest I, the graphics (which were impressive for their time) soon grew painfully outdated.
The King's Quest II: Romancing the Stones remake follows in the tradition of AGDI's King's Quest I: Quest for the Crown remake, containing updated graphics and the familiar Sierra Point-and-Click interface system. But this time there is also an added storyline, deeper plot, fleshed-out characters, clever puzzles, enhanced artwork, music, atmosphere, depth, culture, and more - basically, the whole nine yards!
Since its initial release in December, 2002, AGDI’s King's Quest II remake has been downloaded over 451,400 times! The original speech add-on pack was downloaded more than 172,450 times, and the digital music add-on pack over 202,000 times, again proving that there is still vast interest in the adventure gaming genre!
