** Believe it or not, the ''FanRemake'' also has an update. All the portraits were redone and some tweaks were added such as a new EasterEgg. It also added a no-dead-ends mode.

The game is best known for its FantasyKitchenSink setting, limited graphics and interface (blocky 8-bit characters and TextParser), often exasperating puzzles, random deaths and {{Unwinnable}} situations (though the fan remake has a "no unwinnable situations" mode). It has been remade with better graphics twice, once by Sierra itself, and once as a FanRemake by AGDInteractive.

* RandomEncounter: In certain areas you may stumble into a dangerous being (The Ogre, The Wolf, the Sorcerer or Dahlia the Witch) and you'll have to evade them before they get you. There's also the Dwarf, who steals an item from your inventory. All these encounters can also be avoided thanks to the Invisibility Ring or the blessing from you Fairy Godmother.

* DeathByDespair: The King dies from this at the end. Actually he dies by pure joy of seeing Graham return with the magic treasures, not by despair. He was already old and feeble to begin with.

* OptionalStealth: IWhen you reach the land beyond the clouds you can either kill the giant with the slingshot or wear the invisibility ring obtained by the elf and wait for him to fall asleep and steal his treasure. The stealthy solution requires more time and is not immediately obvious but gives more points.

* FairyTale: A major source of characters and puzzles. This game includes references to ''The Three Billy Goats Gruff'', ''Rumpelstilkzin'', and ''Hansel and Gretel'', among others.
* FantasyKitchenSink: In the same game as Rumpelstilkin, there are leprechauns. Yeah.

** The Rumpelstilkin of the game has a hint for his name: it's "backwards." And by hint, we mean that there is a random note in the witch's house which does not mention where to apply this knowledge. And in the original game, "backwards" [[spoiler:meant that you were supposed to write the name down, transpose each letter with it's opposite (A becomes Z, B to Y, C to X, etc), and come up with the solution "Ifnkovhgroghprm." The remakes changed this, so that the direct opposite of the expected name "Rumpelstilkin" was just "Nikstlitselpmur," the inverse.]]

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: On the IBMPCjr version, going from one screen to another was not instantaneous. You had to sit and wait for the screen to fully load the data, which was about 5 seconds (a huge deal back then). You could actually see the computer draw all the backgrounds and objects one by one, then fill them with colors. If you were very observative, sprites were drawn last, giving you clues of hidden objects.

* TrespassingHero: Averted with Rumpelstilkin in the remake. After he helps you on your quest, he goes back inside his home. If you try to have Graham enter the home, the game [[WhatTheHellPlayer will call you out]] and say that it's impolite to enter someone's house uninvited.
