    King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne is the sequel to Quest
    for the Crown, and was designed by Roberta Williams in 1985. The game
    revisited Graham, now King of Daventry, and followed him on his journey
    through the land of Kolyma. Graham’s ultimate mission this time was to
    rescue the beautiful maiden, Valanice, from her quartz tower
    imprisonment and marry his Queen. King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne
    was made with Sierra On-Line’s AGI engine and featured the same 16-color
    CGA graphics and text parser as its predecessor. Due to the commercial
    failure of Sierra On-Line’s official SCI remake of King’s Quest I, no
    plans were ever made to upgrade King's Quest II in the same fashion.

    Despite this, many people regarded
    this sequel as being the King’s Quest game most in need of an update.
    Players were generally discontented, believing the puzzles did not vary
    widely from the previous game and that the storyline was sparse.
    Additionally, as with King’s Quest I, the graphics (which were
    impressive for their time) soon grew painfully outdated.

    The King's Quest II: Romancing the Stones remake follows in the tradition of AGDI's King's Quest I: Quest for the Crown remake,
    containing updated graphics and the familiar Sierra Point-and-Click
    interface system. But this time there is also an added storyline, deeper
    plot, fleshed-out characters, clever puzzles, enhanced artwork, music,
    atmosphere, depth, culture, and more - basically, the whole nine yards!

    Since its initial release in
    December, 2002, AGDI’s King's Quest II remake has been downloaded over
    451,400 times! The original speech add-on pack was downloaded more than
    172,450 times, and the digital music add-on pack over 202,000 times,
    again proving that there is still vast interest in the adventure gaming
