User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)
Title screen / Main menu
Intro opening (probably the only CG in the game)
Intro with in-game graphics: easier than it looks...
Cutscenes in the game have those comic book-like dialogue bubbles
Fighting is a bit similar to Parasite Eve, where you see the radius your weapon can reach.
Even after you strike, you can use certain ingame option for some extra doings.
These blue lights are the only places you can save your game at.
Beside the in-game mini-map, you can check every corner in detail of already explored areas on a bigger one.
In the menu you can check your health status and condition.
Changing weapons, shields, armour, upgrading stuff, using magic... learning quick navigation through ingame menu is a must.
Zooming out the game may prove useful when in combat or for noticing something.
Only in workshops can you assemble and dismantle weapons and shields, and repair stuff.
Bats are the most harmless and simplest to defeat creatures you'll encounter.
Certain options in the menu will only appear if you're in a certain mode (ie. battle mode) or in a certain place. (ie. workshop)
