During the recent Game Developer's Conference, we managed to get our hands on the iPad version of the forthcoming Ultima Forever and, boy, was it sweet. Check out our impressions and then head to the comments to continue the conversation.
The demo we saw began with a tap movement system which also has smartpath to get around the dungeons and outside areas. You can interact with a lot of objects in the game. There are levers, traps, and gates. As you go through a dungeon there are checkpoints which allow you to respawn so you don’t have to go back to the beginning. The interface moved very well on the iPad and the look of the game is beautiful. The hand painted tiles stand out on the screen and it is easy to get around.
