Lowlander II: Lowerlander
By Flat Black Films
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
LOWERLANDER is the sequel to Flat Black's 2015 somewhat-acclaimed retro-rpg, Lowlander!
Yarak means business. She ain't got time for you! Get that armor on- there's adventuring to be done!
Generations after the mighty LOWLANDER vanquished the nefarious Azamon, a new villain has arisen. The evil enchantress, YARAK! The realm needs a new hero -- will you be the one?
Styled after the early Ultima games from Richard Garriott, Lowerlander will make your iPhone 7 Plus feel like an Apple II+. That's a good thing! Plus, Lowlander's new sibling packs the same one-handed portrait-style gameplay that sensible people prefer!
TouchArcade had this to say about the first one’s shameless imitation of Ultima II: “4.5 stars ... Lowlander is an interesting case, because it's not often that a game paying direct homage to a classic is actually better than said classic.” Unquestionably undeserved, but that’s high praise!

Sheer Ultima Retrogeek Bliss
If you have an itch for the classic Ultima RPG games, don't buy this game because you'll play it so much that you'll need to enter addiction therapy afterwards. This was such a blast to play. The gameplay is brisk. There are lots of small challenges that can be easily solved in one session, but aren't so easy that you can simply go through the motions.
The game controls have a few awkwad spots, but overall it's well done across the board and there was no effort spared to inject humor into every twist of the game. By the time I got bored with visiting towns and trying to find hidden entrances to places, I was still wanting to play so I could chuckle at the next odd and quirky plot twist.
Great Ultima/Dragon Warrior game
Thoroughly enjoying this game about ten hours in. Lots of places to explore. Don't need to play the first game to enjoy this.
Docking a star for now for it crashing every time I switch apps with the new version. For a game where you can lose a lot in a crash, that's a bummer. Hoping that's cleared up so I can go up to the five it deserves.
