Ultimate was once the pioneer of the software industry. Remember how the Spectrum world went crazy when Sabre Wolf and Atic Atac were let loose. And remember the stir that this game caused when it struck the tar and cement covered path (hit the streets to you, Mac). It was the first game to use the now familiar isometric 3D layout that we all know and luv. And it had, for its day, the most incredible cartoon-style graphics we'd yet seen. But the plot, the plot, my kingdom and half a jelly baby for the plot. After travelling back from Sabrewulf Forest, you come across Knightlore Castle. You enter with designs on killing the great wizard Melkhior. But all is not well, for when night falls you metamorphose into a werewolf. Aaargh. And I would just like to say that this is the best part of the game. The transformation. While walking around, you suddenly jerk and twist in a very amusing manner and reform as a werewolf. The graphics are still excellent with some great animation. A great bargain. Please - if there's anyone who doesn't already have this game - buy it and restore my faith in human nature.
Still regarded as one of the best filmation games ever released, and definitely a classic. At this price, get it.
