The name change was necessary due to another (and older table) game having the same name.

Quote:
[...] One of the most stressful parts of creating Quest for Glory was having to change the name of the series after the first game had already been released under the title Hero’s Quest. Sierra didn’t properly trademark the title, and objections from the makers of the British board game HeroQuest forced the change. [...]

The name change was reviewed in different magazines BitD.

I had both version BitD but prefered to play the "Hero Quest" named version. For the few I played the renamed version, I didn't notice anything different (game's name excepted).

Strange that the "new" name is not available in the various collections available for download?

edit : you were faster @rygar
