The original game bearing this title was released in 1990 on a wide range of platforms (among them, two of the greatest of the 1980s platforms, including the Commodore 64 and the Apple II).
The original game spawned a very popular series that continues to remain a profitable IP even to this day. But the later games did not possess the feel of the original - the sense of something new and unique that the original King's Bounty brought to gaming. It was a surprise to me several weeks ago when a friend asked me about King's Bounty and if I'd heard of it."
