The  Hints  &  Tips  I  hereby  provide  for  "King's  Quest  I", 
eventually lead to the solution. Good luck!

At the house by grandma: look mailbox - open mailbox - get basket
When the girl arrives:  give the basket to the girl (now you  get 
flowers).
LOOK OUT: There's a bridge in the game, don't enter it if this is
not nessecary. The first time you enter the bridge is as you have 
the flowers from the girl.
Now you go back to the beach.  Find the trident.  Then walk along 
the  beach  until you see the mermaid.  Give the flowers  to  the 
mermaid and then ride the seahorse.  When you arrive at Neptune's 
place, you should give him the trident and get the key.
Go to the bridge and enter it. Then open door. Read on the door.
Witch: get cave
Antiquestore:   yes  -  buy lamp  -  give nightingale to lady   - 
rub lamp twice

Grandma:  give soup to grandma - look under bed - get black cloak 
-get ruby ring.
Church: open door - pray -  my name is sir graham  -  now you get
the silver cross.
After church you go south - swim - look hole - get broche.
At the beach by the shell: go east - get stake
From the trolshouse you can go north - go behind white tree and
look tree - look hole - get mallet.
Boat to the island - wear cloak - ruby ring.
Castle: get ham - e - d - w - coffin kill dracula - open coffin

Now,  you've got two keys.  Before you go to Dracula, you must go 
upstairs: open drawer - get candle -light candle on the stair
If you got the keys from dracula go tower - unlock chest - get
tiara.
After third door: n - get net - s - s - fish with net - throw
fish back in sea - ride fish.
Island: find the amulet on the beach - go to tower - give ham to
lion - open door - kiss girl - say home.

Well,  this information enables you to solve the adventure.  It's 
not  a  step-by-step solution and the tips aren't  in  the  right 
order, but someone playing "King's Quest" will probably know what 
I'm talking about....
