    King's Quest is the happy ending that we all deserve, and probably one of the greatest adventure games I've played in recent years.

    King's Quest: Once Upon a Climb may lack complexity, but it more than makes up for it with strong storytelling and effusive charm.

    Once Upon a Climb didn’t quite tickle my fancy as much as 'A Knight to Remember', but it’s pretty close. The storytelling gets better with age, even if the puzzles don’t keep up as well. Still, this is an adventure game with a story to tell, and the gameplay is always going to be on the back burner. As usual, 'King’s Quest' is a good time, with jokes appropriate for almost all audiences.

    Compared to the previous chapters, I found this current instalment a little on the easier side but thankfully the narrative held me quite captivated from start to finish and I’m really eager to see how this modern incarnation of King’s Quest plays out.

    Kings Quest Chapter 3 is a beautiful new episode in the adventure game series. It's story is colourful and very enjoyable. The characters are amazing, so are the puzzles and action sequences.

    The lack of great puzzles in a game that we know is capable of them is unfortunate, but once you get over what’s missing, you’ll likely enjoy what’s there.

    Once Upon a Climb is a strong middle episode that makes us much more hopeful for the next.
