Description official description
Ultima I is a remake of the classic RPG Ultima from 1981. You must travel to another world and save the land Sosaria from the evil wizard Mondain. The game features tile based top-down overworld graphics and first person perspective pseudo-3D dungeons.
The original Ultima was re-programmed using assembly language, with updated graphics, minor changes in towns' and people's names, and some different puzzles.

Ultima I appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
Origin, like they did with many of the Ultima games, included a "trinket" in the box. In this case the trinket consisted of a small cloth bag with five metal coins.
