The Play Cursor (aka The Cursor) is the main cursor in KQ7 and KQ8. It allows the player to look, take, talk, and do.
In KQ7 the Play Cursor is shaped like a magic wand. It is known usually simple as the cursor. The cursor is context sensitive and twinkles when put over something that can be used or picked up. The cursor also changes to direction cursors when moved to the age of the screen, these are arrows showing the direction the player can travel (these are turquoise colored in KQ7). The cursor can turn into an 'x' briefly if it is used in a non-functional spot.
In KQ8 it is a simple arrow.
When picking up items, the cursor changes into the shape of the item, the Inventory Cursor.
