Compared to KQ3 the troll cave is nothing. It is only a couple of screens.

If you want to replay KQ3, play the AGDI version. I hear it has a pretty good soundtrack...

Yeah, the female character vocabulary list in KQ2 was pretty bad. Either some programmer had a real problem with women, or he thought adding those words in would be funny.

For anyone who doesn't know what we're talking about, take a look at this article from Cracked.com. Before reading that article, I had no idea those words were even in KQ2.

the inside speculation is that Scott Murphy that was responsible for what was in the WORDS.TOK in KQ2.

If you look at some of the responses in the comments section of that Cracked article, there are tons of people who think that because Roberta Williams was the "creator and designer" that means she programmed in those words.

I think the problem is that the term "designer" today has a very different meaning that it did back then. The closest equivalent in today's modern gaming industry would be that of a "creative director."

Could not be worse than the "problems" of KQ3.

You could do a let's play of the Amiga sound version and post it to the SHP Facebook group.

I got stuck because I couldn't "light" candle. At the time I thought I should be saying "lit" candle. But hey when I played this I was extremely young...like...9 years old....or something.
