[Found: Ultima VIII: Pagan] Looking for a game...

Hi,

I'm looking for a game which I never actually played. I think I saw it in an Amiga Power magazine. I'm sure the graphics are isometric and I remember a knight, grass, water and possibly a bridge. I think the name contained "Ultima" but I'm not sure. I don't even know if it was an unreleased game.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I've looked it up in HOL, but didn't find it. It's not 'The Final Battle', looks interesting though . I remember the knight jumping up and being dressed in red, I don't know if that's helpful or not.
I've lost the magazine since then, I'll try to find it in the AMR.

Found it. It's "Ultima VIII: Pagan". It must have been a preview I saw. Was it ever released on the Amiga?

By the way. If you can give me the titles of some isometric RPGs like Hero Quest and Legend I won't mind.

The last officially released Ultima on the amiga was VI, there's an open source conversion of VII for the Amiga as well but that's where it stops.

Other isometric rpgs

Darkmere
Heimdall
Shadow Sorcerer
Shadowlands
Tower of Souls

A decent link, you can see at a glance what is isometric, what is first-person.

Nice link. No Deuteros in there though... (I'm quite fond of that game)

Deuteros isn't an RPG.

Yeah, well I doubt that guy covers every RPG anyway. And another thing, some RPGs use first-person but change to isometric during battles, so some screenshots might be misleading.

It's a good start though, I think.

Anyone know of a good site that specifically covers Amiga RPGs with good write-ups and screenshots ?

A nice site with RPG screenshots for nearly all gaming platforms. The write-ups are sadly in Polish.

There's also a strategy section in the site.

Man great site! Better screenshots and some of the games have decent write-ups.

Pity they're in Polish...
