Retro gaming: Ultima IV

Ultima IV! On Linux!

One of my favourite games to play on my Apple IIe back in the day was Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar. It’s been a long time since I played it, but thanks to xu4 (on Sourceforge), I can play it again. I’ve known about xu4 for a long time, but never bothered much with it until recently.

Getting it running on Fedora is as simple as installing the package with sudo dnf install xu4.

Plays just like it did on my Apple IIe. Ahh, memories.
