Description of Les Manley in: Search for the King
A milder version of Sierra's Leisure Suit Larry, the lovable nerd Les Manley finds himself in this wacky adventure where he must literally search heaven and earth for the King himself.
The text parser is very flexible (you can use pronouns, etc.). You can get stuck in unwinnable situations since the game happily lets you proceed without having all the necessary items. The game is disappointingly short, with the second half simply not as well scripted or funny as the first.
Still, it's a funny game that deserve a second look-- just save often!

One of the rare adventure games from 1988-1990 period that the Amiga version is actually better than the PC version. It uses 32 colors vs 16 on the PC (they cheaped out doing vga on using 16 colors).
Sound is a toss up as PC has at least MT32 option.
No point comparing from 91 onwards as PC versions in adventure games always blow amiga away.

we are still missing the answers for the copy protection questions.

Just a warning: the copy of Les Manley in: Search For the King available here is a corrupted version that crashes about 2/3 of the way into the game when the player advances from Las Vegas to Dreamland. Unless the file is replaced, I'd recommend getting this game elsewhere.
