I stumbled over the Basic-Source of Akalabeth aka Ultima 0 and in boredom gave it a try to port it to the CPC.
Mainly because i love the Ultima-Games and found it a shame that the CPC got none Port.

Since today we have at least Ultima 0 - Akalabeth. ;)

Mmmkay... that was new to me that KDE adds additonal Information to the Archive... that requires further investigation as the servicemenu didn't delivered an expected result...

First of all, please experience more fits of boredom if this is the result. secondly, thank you for this.

I first played this on the Apple II, this is a great game and would really benefit from the Amstrad's 'Mode 0' colour palette. Could you just imagine what the dungeons would look like, the castles and landscape. It's one of the best games ever, people should do their damnedest to give it a go.


Such is the games scale, the more you progress, the less you know. The game uploaded looks awfully primitive, but an enhanced version was released in 1986 by Origin that breathed new life into this old RPG.


I have to ask, what's next... The Oregon Trail?  8) [size=78%]     [/size]
