So... here I am, playing King's Quest III capturing the video as I do... and as I have made it abundantly clear, I truly despise Manahahahahahahan...
I remember this game being a nightmare. And it's all coming back to me why. The stress of having to hide everything. Making sure that levers and books and wands are all back in place. Every 30 minutes. Now, this normally would not be too big of a deal. I managed to get most of what I need the first time he left. Then had to go back and hide everything. Then he was hungry, ate, took a nap. I grabbed everything and ran outside. All I really needed at the moment was the eagle feather. As I was on the final cliff screen down, I see him fly by and drop the feather. Naturally, in my excitement, I plunge to my death off the path.
So I restored. And waited. And waited. I went around, saw him fly by a few times, and not drop the feather. So I had to return again, because Manahahahahahan was due back. Hid everything. He came back. A few minutes later, he's leaving on a journey again. So I have roughly 30 minutes again. Gather my stuff, head back down, and now spent 30 minutes waiting for him. Restored. Walked to several screens where I had seen him before.
Restored. Saw him fly by and not drop the feather. (And before you ask, yes, I have repeatedly checked to make sure I hadn't picked it up).
This is painful.
And the medusa thing...
I can't count how many times she turned me to stone, because I didn't turn or I didn't have "show mirror to medusa" ready.
By far, the most annoying King's Quest game. Give me Cedric any day.
