Critic Reviews for King's Quest - Chapter 3: Once Upon a Climb

Once Upon A Climb is a delightful romp that makes me excited for the next installment

King’s Quest: Once Upon a Climb isn't the most enthralling tale I've played, but I'm still very much all-in on the series and was grinning throughout. It's a nice slice of life with a likable cast, and with the goodwill this reboot has gained so far, that's all I need.

King's Quest is the happy ending that we all deserve, and probably one of the greatest adventure games I've played in recent years.

Once Upon a Climb is a strong middle episode that makes us much more hopeful for the next.

If you haven’t looked into this new episodic take on a cult classic, you definitely should. King’s Quest is a great way to kill some time if you enjoy a more comedic point-and-click adventure like Monkey’s Island.

I hope to see chapter 4 and 5 continue the trend and round out the entire Kings Quest experience. It seems they have improved their engine; the loading times have been decreased, the screen tearing barely there. Things are looking up for the King, and now I’m super excited once more for the next two chapters. Don’t let me down!

King’s Quest: Chapter 3 – Once Upon A Climb eliminates many of its predecessor's issues, packs in clever, meaningful mechanics and writing, and is the best part of the reboot so far.

The lack of great puzzles in a game that we know is capable of them is unfortunate, but once you get over what’s missing, you’ll likely enjoy what’s there.
