Ultimerr box cover

Ultimerr is a small but very enjoyable amateur adventure game. It is most of all a parody of the Ultima universe – but isn't restricted to just that. You will, for example, encounter quite a few familiar characters from other well-known works, including some from a well-known Alfred Hitchcock movie, some from an old children's tale, and some which are better kept a secret.

The graphics, although not works of art, are exactly fit for the game. The backgrounds look like the kind you'd expect to find in most older RPGs. The same goes for the characters, inventory items, and everything.

The puzzles are on the easy side. You shouldn't have any trouble solving them in most or all cases. This, again, although probably not on purpose, is something which it has in common with most console RPGs. Some puzzles are quite original or humorous. Which is, more than anything else, the point here.

The only negative point I can find is the very short length. You'll be left wanting a lot more. But other than this, this is a game worth playing by almost everybody with an interest in funny games and/or RPGs. Two thumbs up!
