Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In this game, King Graham falls ill. His daughter, Princess Rosella, goes to the land of Tamir. What must Rosella find to save Graham?

Answer: Magic Fruit

After Graham is bedridden, Rosella goes to the throne and says out loud that she would do anything to save him. A good fairy overhears her, and tells her of a magic fruit that can save her father. So, that fairy brings Rosella to the land where this fruit appears.
2. Who is the fairy that brings Rosella to and from Daventry?

Answer: Genesta

Genesta somehow learns of the situation in Daventry and speaks to Rosella through the magic mirror. Genesta tells Rosella of the magic fruit and then brings her to Tamir so she can find it. It is then revealed that Genesta did this not only for Rosella, but also for herself too. The evil fairy Lolotte has stolen Genesta's talisman. Without it, Genesta can't live very long. She needs someone brave enough to get it back from Lolotte. So by bringing Rosella to Tamir where the magic fruit is, Genesta gives her the chance to save her father AND now Genesta has a hero who can save. Everybody wins, if Rosella can do it.

Erana is said to be based on Genesta, but that's a different series.
3. What must Rosella do with the frog?

Answer: Kiss it

Rosella finds a ball under a bridge. One screen north of that she finds a pond with a frog in it. She throws the ball in the pond to get its attention. It then returns the ball and waits for Rosella. Rosella picks it up and kisses it. It turns into a prince.

The twist is, because Rosella is disguised as a peasant, the prince is ungrateful. Apparently he'd rather remain a frog than be saved by a peasant. But, despite his lack of respect, he gives Rosella his frog crown, which she needs to complete this game.
4. What must Rosella do with the minstrel?

Answer: Give him a book

When Rosella meets the minstrel, she discovers that he is incompetent at what he does. So she goes to the haunted mansion, finds a Shakespeare book, and gives it to him. The minstrel decides that maybe he'd make a better actor than he did a minstrel, so he gives his lute to Rosella and "wanders off to stardom."

This minstrel also appears in AGD Interactive's "King's Quest 3." In that game, he is a poet who Alexander turns into a minstrel. In "King's Quest 4," Rosella undoes what Alexander did. It is likely that neither Alexander nor Rosella ever realize that the other also met this minstrel. Even if they did, their disagreement over what this guy should be does not matter, as they both got something vital from him.
5. How does Rosella get Pan's attention?

Answer: She plays along with him

When Rosella meets Pan after getting the lute, she plays the lute for him. Pan loves Rosella's playing and he loves the lute, so he trades Rosella his flute for the lute and then wanders off.
6. What lurks in the cave?

Answer: Troll

In the dark cave that Rosella must pass through to get to the fruit, there is a troll that sometimes appears. If Rosella is not at the cave entrance when he sees him, she will not be able to escape. The player should save the game every time he or she gets to a new screen and the troll isn't there.

The ogre is in the middle of Tamir and Lolotte lives in a castle on the mountain. There is no wolf in this game.
7. How does Rosella successfully get through the swamp?

Answer: She jumps on the above-water grass

There are a number of grassy banks above the water. Rosella must jump on all of those to get through the swamp. If she tries to swim, the quagmire will suck her under. Becoming a frog also does not work. However, if you have not done so already, I recommend that you try swimming through the swamp as a frog. It's worth seeing.

The "Selling the land to Alexander" choice alludes to "King's Quest 6," in which if Alexander eats the poisoned berries, the narrator will say on the death screen that he has some land he'd like to sell you in the deadly bogs of Tamir.
8. What is Lolotte's first quest for Rosella?

Answer: Unicorn

The first thing Lolotte asks Rosella to do for her is get the unicorn for her. Rosella knows this will be no easy task because every time she sees the unicorn, it runs away from her almost as soon as it sees her. She must do something unusual.
9. What kind of creature takes Rosella to the desert island?

Answer: Whale

Rosella gets eaten by a whale. Then, she climbs its tongue and tickles its uvula, which is somehow in the front of its mouth not in the back of the mouth where uvulas are in real life. Then the whale sneezes Rosella out to this island. On this island, Rosella finds a bridle and a pelican with a whistle. Hey, no one said "King's Quest" games had to make sense!

The dolphin doesn't take Rosella to the island. It takes her back to Tamir from the island. The shark kills her and there is no alligator in this game.
10. What is Lolotte's second task for Rosella?

Answer: Magic Chicken

After Rosella brings her the unicorn, Lolotte tells her to get the magic chicken from the ogre and his wife. At this point in the game, the ogress is generous enough to leave the door to its house unlocked for Rosella.
11. What is Lolotte's third task for Rosella?

Answer: Pandora's Box

After Rosella brings her the Unicorn and Chicken, Lolotte asks her to bring to her Pandora's Box so that she can become the most evil person in the world. Rosella really does not want to do this (not that she wanted to do any of the other tasks but she especially doesn't like this one), but if she doesn't she will never get close enough to Lolotte to get Genesta's talisman, and then only bad things will happen.

Besides, Lolotte had been promising a reward, and Rosella could have been hoping that the reward was the talisman
12. How does Rosella get through the bad forest?

Answer: She waves the axe

Rosella does not actually chop down any of the trees. She just threatens them by showing them the axe. You can type "chop down tree," but she will just wave the axe. She will not actually chop down a tree. But she doesn't need to. Waving the axe will scare the trees so much they will not bother.

Although, if you are curious, the game has several jokes for when you do get caught by the trees.
13. When Rosella walks into the skull cave after stealing the witches eye, what do they give her?

Answer: Scarab

Rosella steals the eye to show the witches that she means business. The witches are completely blind without it and are so desperate to get it back that they offer Rosella a scarab that wards off the undead hoping that she will return their eye in trade.
14. Should Rosella return the eye to the witches?

Answer: Yes, you get points for this

Yes, even though the witches are evil, "King's Quest" games usually encourage you to do good deeds for everyone, even evil people. You do not have to return the eye to win the game, but you do if you want the full points. If, after you return their eye, you get close to them as they tell you to do, THEN they will kill you.
15. "King's Quest 4" is the only "King's Quest" game in which the whole game is on a timer.

Answer: True

There are other games in the series with individual sections that are timed, but only "King's Quest 4" is entirely timed. The game moves mostly in real time. There are two points in the game in which time can pass forward. If Rosella does everything that can be done during the day, night will fall soon after. Also, when Rosella kills Lolotte, day will dawn. However, if you wait long enough, it is possible for night to fall and day to break before you have done everything you need to do.

This is bad, because there are some tasks that can only be done during the day and some that can only be done at night. Furthermore, if Rosella makes it to night without the scarab, the zombies can kill her. There will also be a zombie in front of the mansion that can kill her.

Lastly, at the beginning of the game, when Genesta tells you that you have to bring her back the talisman or she will die, she means it. If you take longer than 24 hours, Graham and Genesta will die and Rosella will be stuck in Tamir forever, and evil will forever rule Tamir.

There is no other game in this series where you have to worry about this. Fortunately, you really don't have to worry about it even in this game because you have plenty of time. As long as you don't take extremely long, you have nothing to worry about.
