(re: Looking for King’s Quest I (original) ) I’m only familiar with the Apple II, II GS, C-64, IBM PCjr, DOS “Flopper”, and finally DOS 2.2 versions of the game, which are all mostly the same.
The PCjr version is the biggest change from the other versions, but still looks and plays very similar. The two other extreme versions of KQ1 is the EGA remake in 1990 and the Sega Master Version, which looked great, played awful.
Since all of the versions of the game I play/own are already in color, I can’t verify any other versions of the game that I have already listed.
Are you sure they were bootlegs, pirates, cracks, or warez?
