Video Game: King's Quest IV: The Perils Of Rosella

King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella is the fourth game in the King's Quest series. Release in 1988, it was one of the first games to implement beyond-PC sound, improving overall sound quality, and the first Sierra game with high(er) resolution graphics. It also has a largely-unknown version with the graphics and (lack of) music of the previous three games, created because Sierra (wrongly) feared there were too many low-end computers on the market that wouldn't be able to run the high-quality version.

In this game, you play as Rosella, the twin sister of Alexander and daughter of King Graham. Your father has fallen deathly ill, and his only hope is a magical fruit that grows in the island of Tamir. A good fairy named Genesta sends Rosella to this land, but her powers are weakened by the evil sorceress Lolotte, meaning the trip is one-way. To win the game, you must find the fruit, defeat Lolotte, and return Genesta's powers to her— all in the span of a single day.
