User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)
The title screen has various fish swimming around it
The map of Shipwreck Strait. Large circles are where you change what fish you are using.
Before each level, you will get hints on what to expect in that level.
Eating fish still brings up comic book style sounds. And you can still bite the baracuda's tail... do it four times for a surprise.
Getting poisoned is not fun... your controls become reversed. Click the mouse a lot to get over it more quickly and spit out that poisonous fish.
Even as a great white, you have to be careful.
Midnight Zones make it hard to see. Eat plankton to increase the amount of light.
Jumping out of the water can earn you more points, or cause you to get eaten by pelicans. You can also do flips in the air.
Some levels give you bonuses when you finish them. A mermaid will drop them.
At the end of each level, you'll see how many fish you ate and a fun fact.
Completing the game gets you a special "user".
