I'd kill for this!
Well, not really I guess, but it's not yet available on the UK store, noooooo!

Knew this was just too good to be true.
Please someone tell me that it will be coming to UK players and will still be FREE, please!

Is this legit? Like the real deal? If so, I may have to stroll down memory lane with a quick purchase of this!

Apparently some sort of cross promotion with the terrible new Ultima iOS game.

It's published by Elite systems, of course it's the real deal.

I have this on my iDevice (got early promo code), it's a classic and really cool to see it mobile. It is the real deal. It is revolutionary to see a huge name like Ultima show up in unaltered form on iOS and everyone should give this a try.

On a larger screen iPad it might be fine but on my iPod I struggled a little with small buttons and minature game screen (but I am very glad to have it compatibe on smaller screens even if the UI implementation is fairly cumbersome). The keyboard set up in screenshot 3 and 5 is representative. The developers are being really transparent with the product in the screenshots (which show the minature computer keyboard replication and some of the Ultima Forever ads).

There are a few advertisements for Ultima Forever that pop up when starting the app (sort of like the display in screenshot 2) but they are not too bad.

Update: I searched under Elite Systems Ltd., and found it. Have already started playing and it feels 100% the genuine article! This so takes me back to bygone days...

Despite initial screen, this plays in landscape on my iPad2. Needs some thinking to use the kbd provided to get the game started, like inputing first char of choices, but this is the real deal.

I'm one happy bunny!

This link will pull Ultima IV up; it seems to be live in US.
