Kingsley's Adventure is a third-person platformeradventure game released for PlayStation in late 1999 by Psygnosis.

Gameplay[edit]

The game is similar to The Legend of Zelda series, in the sense that players are given a quest and have to explore certain areas of the game's overworld using a sword and a crossbow (both being upgradeable during the adventure). Young knight Kingsley, a fox swordsman, is sent to protect the Fruit Kingdom from warlock Bad Custard. The game starts with a cutscene of a puppet show where dark fruit is shown attacking the Fruit Kingdom, then it shows Kingsley; the main character the player controls. This, along with the ending scene and game over screen, are the only cutscenes in the game.

Reception[edit]

Kingsley's Adventure received average or positive reviews from critics.[1] Cal Nguyen rated the game 3.5 stars out of 5 on AllGame, adding that "Kingsley's Adventure is a game that tests people's patience but overall has a good children and family-oriented premise with its cute storyline and even cuter main character. For those fans of Crash Bandicoot and other action-adventure platformer freaks, this is definitely worth trying out." [2]
