Kingdom O' Magic is a video game released by [=SCi=] in 1996. It is a comedic point and click adventure game, filled with bizarre humour, as seen in the instruction manual: "First published in 1876 under the title '101 fun things To Do with Trolls'. However the version on CD-ROM is specially calibrated for short people with red hair".

The game is largely a parody of J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, and was designed by Fergus [=McNeill=] (known for games such as Bored of the Rings and The Boggit).

Added DiffLines:

* TheMagnificentSevenSamurai: The first quest, "The Magnificent Seven-Eleven Quest", is a straight-up parody of this, as you have to recruit a group of heroes to defend one of the towns from a barbarian horde. Once you do, the horde turns and leaves as soon as they see your heroes, but the town still gets destroyed... by your heroes, in the drunken post-victory celebrations.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Zigzagged. While Sha-ron is certainly attractive and set on saving the day, the manual mentions that she "has no interest in working with the elderly, and hates all animals, especially the cute fuzzy ones".


Added DiffLines:

* DonutMessWithACop: How you deal with the cop guarding the structurally insecure pier. Turns out the extra weight is juuust enough for it to not hold him.


Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Mirror shades can be useful when medusas are near...

Added DiffLines:

* GagHaircut: No matter what you ask for, the hairdresser will always shave you bald. (Fortunately, if you play as the female character and wear the wig, he'll annihilate that one in lieu of your real hair.)


* UnwinnableByDesign: Insult Granny too much, and she'll storm off. Since you need her help in some of the quests

* UnwinnableByDesign: Insult Granny too much, and she'll storm off. Since off and tell you need her help in some that you've forfeited any future assistance from her. Hope you're not doing any of the quests where you needed her help...


* SmolderingShoes: Your character finds a pair of boots in the woods, still smoking. Right next to an axe and a stump. The narrator comments that that tends to happen in enchanted forests.

to:

* DestructiveSavior: The ending of "The 7-11 Quest". You and your team of heroes successfully protect Flaketown from the barbarian horde, but end up burning it to the ground yourselves in the drunken revelry afterwards.
* GanglandDriveBy: You can hire the Elven Mafia to put a hit on the dragon. Cue cutscene of him being gunned down in the market place by a group of suited elves on a farm cart.
* JailBake: Need to get a sword past some guards? Have it baked into a loaf of bread.
