Video Review


The old-school, flowing cartoon visuals are back, and the subterranean goblin lair is charming. The environments are darker but the lighting, often provided by luminescent critters and glowing flowers, gives everything an alien, ethereal quality. Load times are short and there is little stuttering.

Audio Review


The voice acting remains of a very high quality, particularly Graham, Gwendolyn, and the thoroughly incompetent castle guardsmen. The Odd Gentlemen’s composer David Stanton continues to do good work with the music, which mixes in some of the old soundtracks with newer sensibilities.

Final Thoughts

'King's Quest: Rubble Without a Cause' is no slouch, but its gameplay doesn’t quite live up to the standards set by 'A Knight to Remember'. It is definitely still worth playing, especially for those who fondly remember the golden age of adventure gaming.
