Kings Quest, Leisure Suit Larry and other Sierra Classics on the iPad

Many of the classic Sierra adventures such as King's Quest and Leisure Suit Larry have just made their way onto the iPhone and iPad. But before you go rushing off to the Apple App Store, these games can be played straight from the iPhone/iPad's web browser in their custom built web application.

Adventure game super-fan Martin Kool's website, Sarien.net, hosts a range of Sierra games free to play online. Each game has been given a carefully programmed interface offering pre-configured commands for in game actions. Those not familiar with the Sierra series should note that the original games needed many in game actions to be typed out, unlike the more traditional point and click games from Lucasarts.

Those without an iPhone or iPad will be pleased to know that the games can also be played online in browser.

As of writing, the following games can now be played on Sarien.net:

  • Gold Rush!
  • King's Quest: Quest for the Crown
  • King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne
  • King's Quest III: To Heir is Human
  • Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
  • Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel
  • Space Quest I: The Sarien Encounter
  • Space Quest II: Vohaul's Revenge
  • The Black Cauldron

So should any of these classic adventures take your fancy, head over to Sarien.net now.
