A Knight's Quest: Quest for Milk
What's more important than going to the store to buy milk for your mother, especially when she's cooking your favourite meal? And how do you go about getting that milk when the only store in the village sells everything but milk? When you're a young Knight it's all about quests, and A Knight's Quest: Quest for Milk by Juice Tin will lead you on a sweet, kid-friendly journey of exploration and adventure to get that milk for your mother, and achieve the ultimate prize of a steaming bowl of freshly made turtle soup.
The controls are simple; use the [arrow] or [WASD] keys to move around the village, and the [spacebar] to interact with objects and each of the characters you encounter along the way. There's no inventory, as items you collect will automatically be used when needed. You'll be more concerned about the tasks that are set before you, and you can easily access the task list by clicking on the icon in the bottom right of the screen. Your goal is to get milk but to do this you will need to engage in dialogue with villagers, ask the right questions, and complete tasks to aid your progress... and of course there are a whole bunch of characters just waiting to tell you all about themselves.
As an adventure, the bulk of the gameplay in A Knights Quest lies in the exploration and interaction with characters. The actual gameplay of solving puzzles and completing tasks would be quite brief if not for the amount of clicking and ground you have to cover. Luckily, there's a lot of lovely detail in the graphics, and the conversations your Knight will have with each character are unique, with plenty of humour thrown into the mix. As a treat, you might encounter the occasional (albeit subtle) references to some well-known games. What's also nice is that on completion of your quest you can replay the game by accessing the 'Secrets' menu which will literally present you with easter eggs, in the form of... well, easter eggs.
Some may be familiar with Juice Tin's platform game, That Gravity Game, but this is totally different. With smooth, easy to use controls, sumptuous detail and pop-culture style humour, A Knight's Quest is a lovely diversion that won't necessarily extend your cerebral capacities, but rather will entertain, amuse and remind you of the importance of respecting your mother and helping others, even if it's simply in the pursuit of milk... that costs well over $650.00. And that's the low-fat variety. Without diamonds in it.

Mini-quest 2 - Getting the Power Bar
Go south to the beach and find the Surfer showing off his biceps.
Talk to the Surfer and he will tell you that there's a power bar in his tent in the forest.
Head back North and then West, going up into the forest just before the bridge.
Locate the tent and enter, heading upstairs.
You can talk to the Surfer on the second floor who'll tell you about his brother who died, and where to find the Power Bar.
Go upstairs to the attic and talk to the Ghost Surfer, who'll challenge you to a quiz.
All the answers to the quiz are in this room, so you may want to explore, checking everything out.
The quiz will ask you about the contents of the room. There are 17 questions, none of which are repeated.
The answers to the questions are:
A beach ball
Mini-quest 3 - Becoming a Woman
You need to become a woman to be able to enter the Boogie Box club.
To activate this quest, you need to try and get into the Club that's North in the game screen, and West of the Surfer's Tent.
From the tent, go back down to the wooden bridge and cross it heading West.
Go south until you find a wooden pier.
Keep heading south on the pier until you encounter a couple having a conversation.
Try to converse with them and they'll move off to the beach.
Go back up off the pier and head East back over the bridge and then South to the beach until you find the couple.
Do a little eavesdropping and find out about the Witch.
Head back to the pier and all the way down until you find the Witch's glowing house.
Go into the house and the Witch will tell you she needs 3 frogs to help you become a woman.
The frogs are located:
The purple frog
Go North to the Club and talk to the purple frog who will challenge you to a staring contest. There will be a pause, and then you win the contest and can take the frog.
The blue frog
Go all the way to the East and you'll find the blue frog somewhere near the beach. The blue frog will challenge you to catch it, so it's a matter of trying to get close to the frog and hitting the spacebar to catch it.
The green frog
The green frog is south of the wooden bridge on the Western side. The green frog will ask you 3 questions. Answer them to catch the frog.
Take the frogs to the Witch and she will give you a blonde wig.
Mini-quest 4 - Entering the Hair Club for Men
Now that you're a woman, you can enter the Boogie Box.
Inside the club, go to the table that's top right and approach the fat blonde guy who'll tell you that you can join the Hair Club if you beat him in an eating contest.
When the Fat Man looks at the food for the contest, take note of which plate he says is his portion.
Sit through the first round of the eating contest and lose.
Go to the plate of food belonging to the Fat Man, and add the Power Bar.
Sit through another eating contest round and win.
You'll get a VIP pass for the Hair Club.
Mini-quest 5 - Getting 3 flowers
Go to the Hair Club for Men and enter using the VIP pass.
Go through the door that is at the top right of the screen.
In the outdoor area, try to cross the bridge and the Little Girl will tell you to stop treading on her flowers.
Approach the Little Girl and talk to her to activate the flower seeking objective.
The flowers' locations:
The blue flower
Go back into the Hair Club, go left and up the stairs. On the next floor, take the southern exit and there will be a Blue Flower for the taking.
The orange flower
Head back through the village going West, and there are some paths near the Milk Depot guard. Take the paths until you find the Orange flower.
The red flower
The prettiest flower of them all is just outside the door of the Witch's house on the pier.
Take the flowers back to the Little Girl and she will let you cross the bridge.
Final Quest - Getting the Milk!
After giving the flowers to the Little Girl and crossing the bridge you'll meet the Mighty Psychic Plant.
Talk to the plant and you'll have to pick another body.
There are three choices of body:
If you wish to be a man again - Old Man
If you wish to be good looking - the Dancing Lady from the club.
If you wish to be very fast - a Frog.
You will be magically transported to the Milk Depot when the Plant grants your second wish.
Get the milk and take it back to your Mother.
Congratulations! You've earned your turtle soup!
