King's Quest: Quest for the Crown is a adventure game.
Making it work
King's Quest (both the original version and the enhanced remake) works fine under DOSBox, but you can get enhanced sound from the original version by changing your dosbox.conf file to emulate a Tandy computer.
The 1987 version and enhanced remake (1990) was compatible with DOS:
[dosbox] machine=tandy [render] aspect=true [cpu] core=normal cycles=10000
The 1984 version was distributed with a PC Booter disk that overrode the operating system:
[dosbox] machine=cga [autoexec] mount c C:\KQ1 boot KQ.img
