Games It's already been out for iOS for a while, but today, Android users can join in on this piece of gaming history as well. Chrono Trigger, arguably one of the best - if not the best - games ever made has just been released for Android. Whether you ascribe to that position or not, this 1995 SNES classic from Square was revolutionary in many ways (oh the music...), and you owe it to yourself to give it a go. It's EUR 7.99, which isn't cheap, but trust me: it's worth it. My Nexus 7 just became even more useful.

It seems any game that features hit points and some magic can label itself an RPG. For example Infinity Blade is called a RPG while it's just a slice 'em up game.

I have been unable to find an Ultima-like RPG for iOS, even though it should be easy to do one.

A few days ago I started playing Ultima IV on my Mac, it runs in some DOS emulator.

Tempting me to the Dark Side you try, HMMMM!

I have a DOS emulator on my iPad, never really used it for anything. It may even have been pulled from the app store a long time ago.

My plan was to dump Ultima IV in Dropbox and see if it then runs on any Mac. I already printed all the docs on the company printer when no one was looking.

Get Avernum Escape from the Pit, it is very Ultimaish.

Thanks for the tip!

I watched the trailer, it reminded me of Ultima VI, although the graphics reminded me more of Populous.

Downloading the demo now!
