Title
Obviously this game is important for historic reasons, such as adding a party system and similar JRPG conventions after Ultima, but it's completely unplayable in today's state. Way too merciless, requires a lot of grinding and following maps you make by yourself. This'd be fine and dandy but it also takes 40 hours to complete after fighting mostly similar monsters. Not too cool.

Fortunately, the Apple II version has a cheat disk where you can edit the stats of your characters, in case you need some boost.
