|Not quite sure what is so informative about this grunt|
The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Sunday to update readers on what Mark G has been up to with respect to finishing off games on his "Pile of Shame". The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

In the main quest I need to somehow grab a submerged oar in order to cross a lake, but I can't figure out how, so I guess I’m stuck. I also noticed a few animation glitches while walking but besides that, the game has been pretty smooth.

I have to wait in real time for things to occur in this game? Now I'm really glad that I decided to use a walkthrough. You have to wait five minutes for the wizard to return from a trip, and then another five minutes for him to go take his nap. Then you have to wait ten minutes for the wizard to wake up from his slumber. This game is quickly becoming my most disliked King’s Quest game.
Casting spells is pretty cool though, and now Manannan is a cat! Yay! But wait! The adventure isn't over! An Oracle (that lives in a cave guarded by a giant spider – apparently foreseeing prime real estate isn't one of the Oracle's strengths) tells you that your sister is in danger of being sacrificed to a three headed dragon (whoa, King Graham, you've changed... sacrificing your own daughter?) and it’s up to you to save her.
