A milder version of Sierra's Leisure Suit Larry, the lovable nerd Les Manley finds himself in this wacky adventure where he must literally search heaven and earth for the King himself. The text parser is very flexible (you can use pronouns, etc.). You *can* get stuck in unwinnable situations since the game happily lets you proceed without having all the necessary items. It's also disappointingly short, with the second half simply not as well scripted or funny as the first. Still, it's a funny game that deserves a second look – just save often!
