Quest for a diversion

I generally dislike online flash animation games -- I don't find them engaging, or addictive, or stimulating of my reward centers. But for some reason I can't stop playing Quest for the Crown. Is it the retro-cool? The absurdity of the challenge? The detailed, bizarre cheat guide? The killer soundtrack? I don't know, but this game's got it all.

It doesn't hurt that I'm pretty good at it, either.
