Space Quest IV was the first game in the series to use Sierra's new icon based UI, and feature full VGA 256 colors! A big leap in the series, which had had a typing-based interface, and EGA 16 colors. The CD-ROM version also featured full voice and oddly enough different timing for when sudden enemies appeared on-screen (play, you'll understand). Roger is hanging at a local bar, retelling his previous adventures, for those who want to listen, (as long as Roger buys) when suddenly the Sequel Police enter and drag Roger outside.
Space Quest V sees Roger Wilco attending StarCon Academy, getting his own ship (a huge vacuum cleaner) and doing battle with androids, slime pirates and space monkeys. Giving the plot away would spoil a lot of fun, but this is Rogers best adventure yet! Gorgeous graphics, easy UI, a very funny script, and the most absurd Space Quest sequences yet.
