Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss Screenshots

DOS version

Title screen
Main Menu
Intro: the king blames you for the assault on his daughter...
....and into the abyss you go!
Will you ever see daylight again?
Character creation
Ahh, reading plaques in a desolate dungeon... That's what I always wanted to do as a kid
Exploring a mystical orb
Talking to NPCs
Warren "Spectre"! Hehehe...
Mano a mano against the evil mage Tyball. He doesn't go down easy...(unless you find the trick to cut off his powers)
The fabled automap can be filled with notes.
Magic is rune-based. Here's my collection of Runes.
Stats screen
These banners indicate friendly settlements in the abyss
Although you'll be surprised at the composition of those settlements. You can chat freely with groups of Ghouls, Trolls and Goblins
Drag and drop from the inventory to the screen to use items...
This guy is bad news...
Murdering innocent NPCs... the way of the Avatar
Death waits for no one
You advance your skills by chanting (actually typing) the correct Mantra at a Shrine
Levers and buttons! A puzzle awaits!
Wouldn't be a fantasy RPG without a few undead enemies
Trolls don't go down easy
Bartering with a Lizardman. Note their bizarre language. You can actually learn and translate what they are saying.
The princess, at last?..
Dude, seriously, you're on fire today
Yes, I'm peckish and wide awake. You got a problem with that?!.. ... Anyway. That's a lot of bricks. And treasure. And me showing off my key collection and all
LOOK at me... I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree...
I'd never guess it is currently morning... And guys... can't we all just get along? I get nervous when attacked by giant spiders, maniacal trees, and lightning spells. I'm weird that way
You'll meet some very interesting creatures and engage in philosophical discussions
Swimming is fine. Sure. It's a pity they didn't tell me about the crazed hippo-wannabes who'll bite me to death when I was booking this vacation
You'll discover some clues... scrolls... map pieces... and stuff
Aha, now we're talkin'! Ax animation in progress. Take this, you... you... body!
Levitation, dude! Look at me floatin' an' all. The mongbat is watching. The adventurer in the deep right wasn't as lucky...
Ahh, civilization, civilization... Reading books... Relaxing in a palace... That's really why I took this trip package
Dragon boots allow you to walk over lava. Which comes in real handy on the final level
