Ultima I - Day 2

I’m now ready to explore the deeper levels of the dungeons and try to kill the monsters as requested by the kings. In return the will give me the gems needed to use the time machine to travel back in time.

I just want to show the superior difference in graphics on the Apple IIgs. Not sure why the dungeon walls were not updated?

Ultima I - Day 1

Here it is in all its glory. Ultima I. Richard Garriot’s first real adventure.

I was really expecting this game to be pretty crap. Reason being its now more than 25 years old. I do admit it took me a while to work out how to stop dying all the time. Once you get the hang of things it is quiet addictive.

I entered into the world of Ultima at Ultima VI. I can’t remember why I never did play this? I remember my brother playing the Wizardry series and I tackled those but never the earlier Ultimas.

I’ve included the Apple IIgs title screen. I stumbled upon this after finishing Ulima I. The graphics are much better and it has midi sound.
