    Game info:
    It came out on the Game Boy Color, but also plays on the regular Game Boy.
    This is a generic adventure game, that Zelda blows out of the water.  The
    game itself is ok, but the control is horrible.  This game also has support
    for the Game Boy Printer, but I don't have said device so I can't comment on
    it.  The game is broken into 8 chapters, with cinemas in between.
    
        "Quest for Camelot, characters, names and all related indicia are
        trademarks of Warner brothers (C) 1998"  -- The box
    
        The game is (C) 1998 by Nintendo
    
        Titus looks to be the producers of the game
    
    ==================================================
    
    Story:
    In this game you are Kayley, daughter of the valiant (and dead) Sir Lionel.
    He died defending King Arthur.  Kayley  wishes to become a knight like her
    father, despite her mother's protests.

    Walkthrough: (Continues to end)
    
    
    == Chapter 1 ==
    
    
    Talk to the man left and down from the starting point.  When you do he'll
    give you the save box and tell you about the cost to save.  (30 gems)
    Find and talk to the blacksmith.  He'll send you on a mision to find his 5
    hens, 3 of which are easy to find, and 2 require using warp caves.  If help
    is actually needed finding the hens I'll post direction or an ASCII map.
    Talk to the blacksmith again to get a sword.  He tells you that your sword
    can level, and it can up to level 6.  Kill anything you can easily kill
    whenever you have the oppurtunity until you hit this level.  Find and talk
    to the swordmaster.  He'll ask you to kill all the knights.  Do so.  Talk
    to him again to get your 1st ability, the spin attack.  (Which I never used)
    Find and talk to Merlin, who will tell you that you can now enter your home.
    Go up from talking to Merlin to do so.
    
    You are now at the castle, kill the knights for experience and go inside.
    Talk to the man by the door, then go all the way right and talk to the man
    looking for his dog.  Find the dog and deliver it to the man.  You will
    recieve the shield.  Open all the chests, one will open a passageway with
    the grappling hook.  Kill all the ghosts and the door you couldn't open
    will open, allowing you to get the compass and a heart.  The compass is one
    of the most useful items of the game, a universal (nearly) map.  Use it
    to see where you, people, enemies and items are.  Go outside, to the right
    and up, and use the grappling hook where the arrow is pointing.  You will
    be able to go up and pick up the key you need to go after Ruber.  Go back to
    Merlin, talk to him, then enter the door.  Go right for a heart then the
    other way to fight Ruber.  It's an easy fight, just like fighting knights,
    except that Ruber has more energy.  Use yor recovery heart if you have to,
    but it shouldn't be neccesary.
    
    Once you beat Ruber go to the bottom of the screen.  After a while a hole
    will open up.  Fall in it.  This will happen with almost every boss, taking
    you to Merlin's house.  Talk to him and your life will refill, and you'll be
    treated to some storyline.  When it's all over you will be asked if you want
    to save.  Remember 2 things:
    1:The game has only 1 save slot (important if you are going for the map)
    2:This is a free save (it doesn't cost you 30 gems)
    
    
    == Chapter 2 ==
    
    
    You start out in a cave, leave it.  Use the compass to find the horse.  Talk
    to it.  Go to the top of the area and exit up.  Talk to the bridge guard.
    Find the merchant and buy his shovel.  Go back to the screen below.  Walk to
    the center of the pattern and dig.  Dig until you have food for the horse,
    then talk to him.  Ride him to the screen above going as far up as you can
    until you find a cave.
    
    Enter the cave to go to the next screen digging up more food for the horse as
    needed.  Talk to Merlin, then go to the house on the screen below.  Go inside
    and talk to the bridgekeeper.  Go in the cave at the lower part of this
    screen (after leaving the house) and get the magic stick.  Go to the screen
    above.  Talk to Merlin again, then talk to the villager.  Kill all the knights
    and talk to the villager again.  Go right and dig everywhere until you get the
    large turnip, you'll know it when you see it.  Feed it to the horse and go
    right from where Merlin stands.
    
    Use the compass to find your way around, then equip your sword and shield.
    Get the recovery heart and the slingshot.  Go up a screen.  Pass the plants
    when they stop moving.  You will now fight one of the worst bosses.  When not
    slashing, keep moving.  Preferrably to the left or right.  When the tentacle
    comes up, slash it.  This will make the plant open its mouth.  When it does
    put the stick in the plant's mouth and slash the plant until the stick goes
    flying.  After beating the plant go down as before to continue to the next
    chapter and save.
    
    
    == Chapter 3 ==
    
    
    Talk to the two-headed dragon.  use the compass to find the scale and
    approach it from the left.  Slash the tree with your sword and you can get
    at it.  Use the scale to jump from rock to rock.  Find and talk to the
    swordsman.  Go into the cave on the right edge of the screen.
    
    Kill everything you can, and take everything you can.  Move to the furthest
    corner up and left.  use the compass.  Your destination is the roome at the
    bottom right of the displayed map.  (Without scrolling)  Go in the room, talk
    to the dragon, then exit the room and the cave.  Go right from the cave to
    the next screen for the last egg, then return to the dragon.
    
    Talk to the dragon, leave the room, kill knights until you have the key, then
    rescue the dragoon and exit the cave.  The dragon will clear the blockage.
    Go to the screen where you got the final egg.
    
    On this screen go up and right for a heart, then down to continue.  When
    you meet the boss (an easy one, the giant dragon) equip your sword and shield.
    When he comes close raise your shield.  s soon as his breath runs out slash
    him, then raise your shield again as he comes back.  Repeat until he's dead.
    
    
    == Chapter 4 ==
    
    
    Go South then right to the next screen and talk to the man.  Collect the
    wood he asks for and give it to him.  It's easy to do even though it doesn't
    show on the map.  Go back to the screen you came from and walk around its
    edge counter-clockwise until you seel the sled.  Save your game, then hop on
    the sled.
    
    Dodge trees until you come to a stop.  When you do, save again.
    Kill the mice with your slingshot and find Merlin.  He'll ask you five (easy)
    questions.  Get 3 or 4 right and you may continue on.  Try for 5.  If you
    don't get them all right reset and try again until you do.  If you succeed
    Merlin will give you a heart.
    
    A cave will open up when you are done talking
    to Merlin.  Go inside it.  Go into the bottom right cave, talk to Merlin
    again, then get all the tablets.  once you have done so talk to Merlin again.
    Go to the cross of stones.  They will be layed out as follows.
    
    
     1
    234
     5
    
    Walk over them in the following order: 1, 3, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 3, 1, 4, 3, 2
    Enter the door that opens up and kill the magician.  He's one of the annoying
    bosses, but you can sometimes knock his shots back with your sword.
    
    
    == Chapter 5 ==
    
    
    Talk to Merlin, then the bird, then Garret.  You will see the instructions
    for finding the next piece of the map.  Follow the map directions until you
    have the flute.  Use the flute on the bird to get the lead bracelet.  You
    can now go up through the wind that was blowing you back.  Walk clockwise
    to what looks ike a pile of sticks.  As soon as you walk over it start
    counter-clockwise as fast as you can to get in the gate before it closes.  It
    took me a good number of tries.  Try to walk the shortest possible distance,
    going diagonal as much as possible.  It turns out there's a secret that
    helps in this area, sent in by Nick 86':
    
    [The answer is the "double-tap" sword technique, as this gives Kayley so]
    [much speed that there's no problem getting past the section.           ]
    
    Go up and talk to Merlin, solve the puzzles, none of which are hard.  If you
    need help e-mail and I'll post the solutions, but they're all fairly simple.
    You will get the snorkel for your efforts.  Talk to Merlin and he'll offer
    you a choice of whether to solve more puzzles for an extra treasure.  Do so,
    It's an extra heart.  Once you have the treasure use your snorkel to go up
    through the water to the boss, the super-minion.  Slash away until it's
    history.
    
    
    == Chapter 6 ==
    
    
    Go up, then left, then talk to the man.  Go down from the farmer for an extra
    heart.  Go counter-clockwise from the starting point for a heart.  Travel back
    to where the farmer is, then go up to where there is a bush in the middle of
    the trail, and an arena like area to the right.  Go down slightly, left, then
    up to the bridge.  continue up until you see the golem (who immediately gives
    chase) and lead it into the arena like area.  Sneak past the golem and run
    left to the bush.  Slash it to trap the golem.  If the golem made it out
    before you could trap it lead it back in and try again.  He will escape.  Go
    back to the man below and talk to him.  Cut down all the new bushes, then
    slash the golem into submission.  The third and final bridge will be unblocked
    and you will be able to go up to the next screen.
    
    
    [Bug] The dragon exists in two places at once on this screen, use the compass
    to see
    
    Go counter-clockwise to the swordmaster, then clockwise to the dragon.  Talk
    to the dragon.  Go into the cave and grab the orange while dodging the plants.
    After leaving the cave go left for an apple, then right and up for a large
    gem.  Save, then talk to the dragon.
    
    You will go to a standard overhead flying-shooter subgame, except that you
    don't get weapon upgrades.  Up makes you go faster, down slower, left and
    right self-explanatory and B shoots.  Sweep left and right while firing
    constantly and you'll be fine.  You'll now face... the Chimera.  Keep moving
    left and right while firing constantly and you'll be fine.
    
    
    == Chapter 7 ==
    
    
    Some people had trouble with keys in this chapter.  If you need help on it
    look at the "Key Dilemma Walkthrough" below.
    
    Go to the left house an talk to the man inside.  Go up and find the arrow,
    use the grappling hook there.  Go right and talk to the bird.  Go back and
    talk to the man, getting the powder from him.  Go back to the bird and give
    him the powder.  Have the bird follow you to the right, when he walks next to
    some sections of the wall he will chop them down.  Use this to get the large
    gem and the bug.  Go back to the house and give the bug to the man.  SURPRISE!
    You didn't kill the Wizard, he somehow pulled through!  You will be locked up.
    
    Dig through the brush on the floor until you get the key.  Use it on the door
    to escape.  Find the man who hid the key (in another now open house) and talk
    to him.  You now have your sword again!  Get the key and go into the castle.
    Search around for keys.  (You'll have to walk back and forth a lot, again, if
    you actually need directions for this e-mail me and I'll post them)
    
    When you get to the boss arena go right for a heart, then back to the main
    arena.  Go down all the way and wait for the griffen.  Neither you nor it may
    walk through the skulls.  use this to your advantage by walking back and forth
    on the bottom of the screen sashing the griffen as it walks up.  When it dies
    go into the room you got the heart in and hop down the hole as usual.
    
    
    [[[[[Key Dilemma Walkthrough]]]]]
    
    As far as keys in the seventh chapter, there are 3 key dilemmas.
    First you must get into one of them.  Go to the arrow, use the grapling hook
    and talk to the chicken/axe.  Go to the left-most house and talk to the man
    inside.  Go back to the chicken and use the powder on it.  Walk to the right
    and cling to the right wall by the bug until the chicken breaks it.  When
    the chicken does, run in and get the bug.  Go back to the left-most house
    and give the bug to the man.  You'll be put into key dilemma 1, jail.
    
    
    Dilemma 1: equip the shovel and dig up the sticks on the floor until you get
    a key.  Use this to escape.
    
    Dilemma 2: go into the right-most house (now open) and talk to the man who
    will give you the key to the castle.
    
    Dilemma 3: requires a *lot* of keys, including key #2 which is an annpyance.
    Go back up the castle wall, but instead of going clockwise to the bird go
    counter-clockwise and you'll find key #2.  Go inside the castle and follow the
    directions below for the rest of the keys (although you can probably skip this
    section, as they keys will be easy to find).  Hidden items like key #2 are why
    you should use the compass on entering an area.
    
    From the entryway:
    L=Left  Game West
    R=Right Game East
    U=Up    Game North
    D=Down  Game South
    Key #?= This key will be laying in plain sight
    
    L Key #1
    RRU (Ghost area) LU Key #3
    DRD (Knight area) LLURUR Key #4
    LDLUU Key #5
    DDDRRU (Ghost area) RU Key #6
    DLU Key #7
    UL Key #8
    RDDD (Knight area) LLURURRUL Key #12
    D Key #9
    URDDLLDLDRRU (Ghost area) RUU Key #10
    DDLD (Knight area) RU
    
    You are now through the key maze, going RU takes you to the boss.
    I have no idea where key #11 is, but it doesn't seem to be needed to make it
    through, or to get the parchment at the end of the stage.
    
    == Chapter 8 ==
    
    
    When Kayley feels a wind, use the bracelet.  When yu find the stairs, remember
    where they are and note that it goes nowhere.  You will run across 4 rocks,
    running over them gives you either a whistle or an error message.  Find which
    rock gives the whistle.  This is the 1st in the series, experiment until you
    figure out the series.  When I played (not sure if it's random or not)  When
    I played the order was:
    
    OOOO
    4213
    
    Go back to the stairs which now go somewhere.  Save and equip the dragon
    scale.  Hop across the lave and when you reach the end of the hall, save.
    Go into the round table room and walk to the top.  You'll see the boss, the
    Super-Minion.  He can shoot in 4 directions at once, and always stops and
    squats before doing so.  Follow him around dodgin him, then hit him when
    he ducks.  If you hit in time he won't shoot.  Continue until it's dead.
    
    
    == End of Game ==
    
    
    You've beaten the 8th end-of-chapter boss, but haven't finished Ruber.  There
    must be something more.  As usual you can't save before talking to Merlin.
    Unfortunately this time when you finish talking to Merlin the game *doesn't*
    auto-save.  Worse, you're dropped right into a boss fight with Ruber, so you
    can't save on your own either.  Hopefully you have a recovery heart on you.
    
    (Talking to Merlin refills the energy from the last battle so you start out ok
    at least)  To fight Ruber, do so like you would an ordinary knight.  Just
    don't let him get over you for any reason.  In time, he *will* be defeated.
    
    [Bug] From here on some text is displayed starting left and above where it
    normally appears.
    
    After saying some agree things, Ruber's energy will refill and gets the
    spin attack.  If he starts this attack, back up some.  Its range is a little
    larger than his normal slashes.  Beat him the same way you did last time.
    
    Once you beat him...
    he says more angry things and you must fight him again!  A full four boss
    fights with no chance to save!  I went beserk here slashing him but his
    energy never went down to zip.  I accidently beat him when... he used his
    spin attack, hitting the center stone on the screen.  Maybe this was in the
    movie, but I never saw it so I wouldn't know.  You may have to hit him a
    few times in this last fight before this will work, but I don't think so.
    Just lure him and let him off himself.  You win!
    
    
    ==================================================
    
    Parchment guide:
    
    Parchments are a bonus thrown into the game that (slightly) changes the ending
    if you collect them all.  You get pieces of parchment for collecting all the
    items in a stage (except for those dropped by fallen enemies).
    
    Below is a list of what you mst collect in each chapter to recieve that
    chapter's parchment.
    
    == Chapter 1 ==
    Once you have a sword, go to where you started the stage.  Go to the upper
    tight of that area and slice the trees until you find one that disappears,
    leaving behind a heart refill.  Go to the bottom left of this area and go
    clockwise along the wall slashing at the edge and the area to the right will
    change, revealing a large gem.
    
    Inside the castle, find the dog by wandering around, find aand talk to all
    the people to return the dog.  (You must speak to the dog's owner twice)
    He'll give you the shield.  Explore the castle for a large gem.  Once you
    open the secret passage and the ghost door you will find a heart container,
    grappling hook and compass.
    
    In the dungeon you can find a heart refill.
    
    == Chapter 2 ==
    Buy a shovel from the man selling it.  In the area with the lines coming
    together in one spot dig for a heart container.  Explore this chapter before
    riding through the wind on the horse to find a large gem.
    
    In the cave you must find the stick, seach all the chests.
    
    Once you have the stick and have saves the top screen talk to the farmer
    and dig up his land (to the right) until you have a large turnip.
    
    In the dragon field you can find a heart refill and a slingshot.
    
    == Chapter 3 ==
    On the main screen there are 3 easily found eggs and a dragon scale.  There's
    another egg on the screen to the right, and another in the cave which also
    holds a gem.  After retrieving the eggs you must off the knights until you get
    a key, then bring that to the dragon.
    
    At the bridges go up then right to the 2nd bridge.  Go right from here for
    a heart container, then back and down the 2nd bridge.  Go right from here and
    you can find a heart refill.
    
    == Chapter 4 ==
    When sledding on the left will be a heart refill.
    Answer all of Merlin's questions correctly for a heart container.
    Inside the cave there is a large gem in one of the rooms.
    
    
    == Chapter 5 ==
    There is a large gem laying around in plain site.  Go to the stone and follow
    the clues with your shovel for the whistle.  Use the whistle on the bird for
    the stone bracelet.  The snorkel should be in plain site.
    When Merlin asks if you want to solve extra puzzles for a prize, say yes.
    It's a heart container, and it's in the 3rd extra puzzle room.
    I can't remember if this stage had a heart refill (and forgot to note it)
    but if it did it was in plain site.  use the compass.
    
    
    == Chapter 6 ==
    Go down, right and up for a heart contianer.
    Go down from Garret for a heart refill.
    When you reach the tooth cave area the orange is in plain site.
    Go left aftr exiting this area for an apple.
    Follow the side clockwise for a large gem.
    
    == Chapter 7 ==
    Talk to the bird, then the man in the one open house for seeds.
    Talk to the bird and have him follow you clockwise around the castle walls.
    Continue this until he's ct open a way to the insect, the large gem and a key.
    In the stable dig i the hay for a key, and the heart container will be in
    plain site as you leave.  Talk to the man in the right-most house for a key.
    Go inside and get through the key maze.  A heart refill is in one of the rooms
    inside the boss chamber.
    
    == Chapter 8 ==
    In one room most of the floor is gone and you have to hop along the remaining
    flooring to the other side.  When you do keep our eyes on the right side of
    the screen for a large gem, the least item you have to collect.  (This stage
    has no heart container or heart refill)
