Very buggy - All of these games freeze when you die and try to restore, rather than having to start over. Space quest 6 crashes during initial load-up. Loved this game as a kid, but this release of it is super disapointing, its barely playable.

Apparently, there is a hardcopy decoder that shipped with the CD waaaaaaay back in the day when this game was new. No one bothered to tell Steam about it, or to provide it to the player. As a result, I can't get past the first few steps of the first game. MAJOR FAIL. That's just ridiculous.

Playing Space Quest I, I can't even get out of the ship before it blows up. I tried EVERYTHING. I even resorted to trying every combination of wierd symbols on the cartridge device. In the game, there is a guy that dies and his last words are supposedly tied to this cartride retreival system that has some buttons with symbols on it. Presumably, the player has to enter the symbols that correspond to the words (and there's several words that are cycled through as you restart. over and over and over again). HOW IN THE EFF AM I SUPPOSED TO TRANSLATE THE WORD INTO WHATEVER SYMBOLS?

I finally caved and Googled the walk-through. That's when I found out about this decoder that shipped with the CD as some "copy protection" wierdness. Luckily someone out there saved it and I can decode the message.,,,, Just ridiculous. I haven't even bothered to continue the first quest outside the ship - this whole debacle leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Steam should have known about the bizzare feature of the game and provided a PDF or something.,,,

Not sure what people are talking about when they say these games don't work. They run fine through my DosBox. If you can't figure out the puzzles, maybe try and get better. I'm currently playing through the first one and haven't encountered a bug yet.

I loved playing these games growing up! Try not to get frustrated when you (inevitably) die several times before you can move past an area; quite often the death scenes are just as entertaining as the puzzle itself!

You must resist the temptation to read any sort of walkthrough or watch any Let’s Play videos… at least until after you’ve beat the game. All of the fun of these games comes from the challenge of figuring out the puzzles. If you start reading hints online, you will inevitably spoil something for yourself, and once you know the solution there’s no going back.

So do yourself a favor: Make sure you save your game often, die in as many ways as possible, and enjoy the victory knowing that you conquered the challenge with only your own intellect!

Space Quest was the very first PC game I ever played. I was addicted the moment I got it for Christmas way back in the 80s. Since then I was a huge adventure game fanatic and the Space Quest series were awesome. They had humor, fun puzzles, and good eye candy for the time. I have a lot of great memories spending all day at the computer playing the Space Quest series.

This Space Quest collection is a great buy for anyone who grew up with the games. For anyone who is curious about these games but has never played them I would warn you that they haven't aged too well in some aspects. The copyright protection areas are likely to confuse players who are completely new to these games. Also some of the maze areas are a total buzz kill. It's been years since I've played these games and there were even a few areas in the game I had no idea I could traverse because of the way the art is displayed. Space Quest 5 was particularly notorious in that aspect for me. Some things can be a bit too vague also.

Still these games have great dialouge and jokes and they're a great trip for those looking to relive those old school memories.

I recommend SQ3&4 but better to get the collection on GOG - you have the option to only buy half, it uses a better version of DOSBox (albeit still misconfigured just as here, but it runs best in SCUMMVM anyway). It's also not region locked on GOG as it is here.

Most importantly, the GOG version can be more easily accessed on alternative platforms.

Such an amazing trip to nostalgia land. I picked up the Kings Quest collection as well. There is a common graphical error (pink,green,lines,etc.) that is easily fixed without downloading anything from sierrahelp (my computer thought that download was a virus, anywho). I am not entirely sure if it is localized to Windows 7 or what, but my machine is running Windows 7 64-bit and I got the horrible pink/green/lines overload and thought I had just wasted my money, but a little digging and I fixed it quickly and easily, so I shared the fix on the discussions.

Check the discussions for the easy fix and don't rob yourself of this incredible throwback experience.

Should be in every Adventure Collection. (At least if you were born in the '80s.)

A classic series of adventure games produced by Sierra On-Line during the height of the genre's popularity. Each one brings plenty of laughs and nods to various science fiction franchises. Pick this up and give them a try.
The Two Guys from Andromeda, the duo that created this fantastic series, are also coming out with a new game in the same style. They are still accepting donations through PayPal. Check out their SpaceVenture project here: http://guysfromandromeda.com/.

The series hasn't aged well, but I still love the humor and seeing how many ways Roger can die.

Has some issues running on my computer but I've found work arounds.

If you're a fan of the series you can't go wrong with this collection.

One of the best adventure game series of all time. It's also worth noting that the games in this collection run pretty smooth on Win 7.

Absolutely classic DOS awesomeness. I miss videogames of those days. So much work went into those games. SQ4 and 5 are particularly good.

Not sure why people complain; have tried this on Windows 7 (disabled DEP) and works fine. It uses DOSBox to run the original game files. So if you experience issues you could easily replace the DOSBox binary. A nice collection, comparable to the GOG version (which is offered as two different items).

Space Quest originally came out in 1986 -1995, so computers today were much too fast to emulate the games properly assuming you still had copies. This neat little collection brings these classic EGA and VGA hits to Windows XP/7. The 6 games included follow the tales of Space Janitor, Roger Wilco, and his quest to (somehow) save the galaxy, single-handed! Presented in Graphical Text-based to Point-and-Click, these adventure games are sure to bring you some good fun (and some frustrating times figuring out puzzles.) Being a major fan of Sierra Adventure Games, I definitely recommend this. Also check out Kings Quest, Quest for Glory, Police Quest, and many more great hits from Sierra of old.

Pre-Release Review
Bring back the nostalgia where a janitor can save the universe, time and time again. Take on the role of Rodger Wilco as he battles Sariens, saving his home planet from being annoyed to death by door to door robot insurance salesmen...to trying to get rid of those stubborn mildew stains. Or just play it for the comedy.

This is old school gaming right here folks. The pack includes Space Quest 1 to 6.
I really wish they made a Space Quest 7..

These games rock! It's a blast from the past, but they're still fun. The only downside is that, if you didn't grow up with them, you might find the early interfaces limiting. Also, if you know pretty much what you need to do, the games go by quickly. Don't look up walkthroughs. Play these games the way they were made to be played: with much frustration and many player deaths. There are so many unique ways to die in the game.

It would be worth buying for the pant-load of humor stuffed inside. Over 20 years later and I'm still finding funny things in the game.

Highly recommended.
