KING'S QUEST III HINT To play King's Quest III effectively you have to have and know how to use every magic spells. The only place you can make these magic spells is in the Wiward's laboratory. To get to the Wizard's lab, go to his room and move a book on the shelf and then pull the lever behind the book. There will be a stair leading down to the lab, becareful! You can not successfully compose the magic spells with the Wizard around the house. Wait until he takes a nap or goes on a trip. He is usually gone approximately twenty five minutes (on the IBM-PC clock speed). This allow you just enough time to get the mirror, the rose essence, the tin cup in the house; go down to the country side to get the required ingredients; and come back to the Wizard's lab to make these seven spells. Once finished making the spells, hide it under the bed; otherwise the Wizard will kill you when he finds you carrying these forbidden (starred) stuffs. You can get rid of the Wizard forever by turning him into a black cat (a different one). Break the "Cat Cookie" into little pieces and hide it in the porridge bowl. Given the Wizard the poisoned porridge when he asks for some thing to eat. To get the cat fur, kick the cat, take it in your hand and pluck its fur (you might have to try this several times to succeed). To get the dog hair, pet the dog. To get the chicken feather, cacth the chicken then pluck the feather. To get the eagle feather watch for the flying eagle across your screen while in the country side, the eagle sometimes will drops its tail feather once. To kill the spider, transform into an eagle and watch what happen. To kill Medusa the hag, use the mirror while hiding behind the big rock in the desert - show mirror to Medusa (You might have to try this several time). The cactus is right beside the big rock. To get mud, use the spoon you got from the kitchen. If you get robbed by the bandits, don't worry because you can get it back. Go to the large oak tree on the edge of the desert. Reach inside the hole at the base of the tree for a lader. Climb up to the bandits' shack and get the gold coins and your stuff back, but becareful! Use these gold coins to buy the ingredients from the store and buy the ship passage from the captain in the tavern. Don't forget to kiss the barmaid, she is a knock-out. Once on the ship, go to the other room to find a small box (listen to what the mouse on the ship said). Put the small box on top of the large crate and jump to lader. Before that, wait until you hear the sailors shout "Land ho..." then cast the sleeping spell on the other room floor. Climb the ladder and go to the captain bin to get your possession back. Jump off the ship to get ashore, watch for sharks! To get pass the snow man use one of your magic tricks. To kill the dragon, use your magic.
