User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)
The game's start screen.
This is the game's menu
There's an optional animation before the game begins. Here we see the baddie, Brigitte queen of all the worlds. At this point she's asking her robot what will make her life complete
There's an optional animation before the game begins. Brigitte queen of all the worlds decides she needs a king, only Sarge is worthy enough but he likes Vikki so Vikki has to go
This is the game's load screen.
The first level is basically a tutorial. Vikki is a reporter looking for a story. Naturally this means she carries a bow and runs around picking up gems
At the end of the first part of the tutorial level there's a cut scene Vikki sees Sarge running into a portal so she follows and the game begins
Through her first portal and there's a short scene showing Sarge running to the next portal with no apparent interference
Sarge ran through here easily while Vikki has to dodge lasers and giant chess pieces
Sarge ran through here easily while Vikki has to dodge lasers and giant chess pieces and make perilous jumps
The end of the first level which was short and basically a tutorial. It gets harder from here.
The second level starts in a candy store.
After dodging gingerbread men Vikki comes up against this guy. Square shoots arrows, triangle cycles through different kinds of arrows
There is no way off this table but if Vikki shoots the clowns nose he falls down and makes a bridge
The star is a checkpoint
See a button, shoot it because it's probably one of the game's Hotshots.
The left buttons/stick control up/down.
In every level there's a Golden Lionhead platform that takes the player to otherwise inaccessible areas.
The game can be paused. This gives the player access to a set of options, one of which shows the current level's objectives.
