User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)
Main Title (has a nice music, too)
The developers are also presented as first recruiters in the game.
A bunch of anxious recruiters, won't take this serious enough until more crosses start appearing.
Prelude to the mission.
First mission can entirely fit on one screen.
Missions usually end with a big bang.
Those who didn't die are instantly promoted. Ranks grow quicky in this game. But so does the casualty counter.
Each phase is comprised of certain number of missions. And after each phase you get 15 new recruiters.
Guarding the bridge. No fish will cross it now.
While swimming or being otherwise unprotected, splitting team and making them guard you may be advisable.
Mission map. Well, here too X marks the spot.
You can't hide
The ending screen.
Intro sequence for the jungle setting.
The first mission - it's very simple, only one screen.
My soldiers are getting a promotion.
Later missions are divided into phases.
Wading through the water makes your soldiers slow down.
It's quite a bloody game.
Destroying ammo crates will lead to explosions.
No, not Joooooops!
Change of scenery.
These guys keep coming out of that hut!
I'm getting decimated.
And they are probably happy about it
Aiming and firing
A snowy level
Nice explosion. Too bad I was caught in it.
Intro (CD version)
Your objectives aren't very diversified.
While swimming your soldiers can't shoot and are easy targets.
Watching your enemies from a safe distance.
These boxes contain grenades.
And with grenades hostile buildings are no longer a threat.
After a mission your men are either promoted...
...or celebrated as heroes.
But don't worry, there are lots of other men who are willing to fight for you.

You are in a pitfall.
A long way...
Take a look over your shoulder ha ha...
