Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire is a spin-off of Ultima games, taking the series' protagonist, the Avatar, into strange and mysterious places outside the scope of a conventional dungeon-based RPG. In this game, the hero visits Eodon, an Amazonian world dominated by dinosaurs. Many characters populate this world, including stone-age tribes, mad scientists, and lizardmen. But not all the inhabitants of Eodon are peaceful - get ready to fight for survival as gorillas, pterodanodons and tigers encroach.

The game is made with the Ultima VI engine, and is very similar to that game visually and gameplay-wise. Like Ultima VI, the game is set in a seamless graphical world, and offers many objects to interact with and combine, party management, and turn-based combat. Compared to Ultima VI, some gameplay features have been simplified. There are less spells, less emphasis on character development, and conversations with NPCs are more limited.

One thing about finishing this game is that all completing the quests do is gain you levels and tell you where to go to kill the end villian. In hind sight, if you were powerful enough you could just go straight there and kill her and complete the game.
