This time it out we follow the exploits of young King Graham rescuing his future bride from the witch Hagatha's tower.

The Odd Gentlemen's reboot of Sierra's classic point-and-click adventure series launched last July with Chapter One: A Knight to Remember. Its second chapter, Rubble Without a Cause, followed in December.

Our impressions based on the King's Quest debut were quite positive. "On the evidence of this first chapter, the wit, heart and soul of classic King's Quest has survived the process wonderfully intact, but it now comes with a looser, more flexible modern design ethos that makes it feel utterly new," said Eurogamer contributor Dan Whitehead in his King's Quest impressions. "It's going to be very exciting seeing where they take the story over the next four instalments."
