- Genre: Adventure
King Graham sets off on a journey to save his family from the evil wizard Mordack. Unfortunately for him, the number of beings in the world that desire to kill him are vast, and only the most silly usage of items can save him from impending doom. He also has a sidekick, Cedric the Owl, who is next to useless.

A port of the PC game from the well-known King's Quest series, King's Quest V is an adventure game infamous for its numerous dead ends, long fetch quests, and overly obscure solutions. The game is highly restrictive, with minimum points necessary to beat the game being not much less than the maximum 260 points, and as such, this TAS goes for the maximum.

King's Quest is a popular adventure franchise for the PC by Sierra that focuses on exploration and puzzle solving. This movie features one of the few console ports of any Sierra adventure game. Notably, it features improved graphics and sound as compared to the original, which is usually not the case for these ports.

Usually this game would take many hours of wandering, collecting objects and solving problems. The author however is able to focus on key events and manages to beat the game in less time than Super Mario Bros...

If you enjoy this movie, you may want to take a look at a movie of King's Quest V for the NES. It is unfortunately much longer and has poor graphics compared to the original, but is impressive nonetheless for people who have played it before.
