Back in the Apple II Plus days, apart from Lode Runner, my favorite game was the role playing classic Ultima II. My mother was very confused – to her Ultima II was a cosmetic brand. Anyway, I spent hours and hours trekking the world of Ultima II, searching for clues, exploring the dungeons and fighting the beasts. I hadn’t experienced the more advanced paper and pen version of Dungeons & Dragons yet (that would be a few years away), so I found the Ultima II world very expansive and engrossing. I still have fond memories of the game.
