Ultima (Original Apple II Version)

The original Ultima is not easy to run in the 21st century, but it's the original version of the game and less buggy than the PC remake to boot. This guide covers the original BASIC edition of the game, not the Apple II version of the PC remake. This version is quite a bit tougher than the PC version, largely due to a lack of bugs that made combat very easy, but there are also many more exploitable mechanics (all of which are covered within). Note that the in-game graphics on this guide are taken from the PC remake, but still give an accurate view of this version of the game.
