  • The Wizard and the Princess (aka Hi-Res Adventure #2: Wizard and the Princess) is part of Roberta Williams' Hi-Res Adventure series and a precursor to the King's Quest series on the Apple II and Commodore 64. According to Interaction Magazine, Fall 1994, "Wizard & Princess can be considered the "prequel" to King's Quest I, since Roberta took many of her fantasy visions from this game and put them into the landmark series. King Graham even returns to Serenia in King's Quest V." The game is a non-animated graphic adventure, which uses a simple parser system.
