SOURCE CODE RELEASED

version 0.994 released
Thanks to "Aleksi" for finding the following bugs:
All of these problems are now fixed and the updated GB image is available for download from any of the usual download links.
version 0.993 released
version 0.992 released
It's only 2 days into March and my bandwidth usage is already at 10% for the month. The hits on average keep going up each hour, too....I fear my bandwidth will be used up before the end of the month. The link to the actual ZIP file will always be valid however - so perhaps you should keep it written down somewhere for any updates that may happen. I'll continue to keep Retrogames informed of any updates so if my site runs over its limit you'll always be able to keep abreast of updates and be able to download the updates. I've also moved the history to its own page.
version 0.991 released
Check out my new Frequently Asked Questions section for answers to common questions. If you send me questions via email, be sure to return to this page every so often because I may have posted the answers. Also, it appears emuhq.com has updated the wording on their website. Thanks much for clearing things up.
Wow! The page has been up less than 12 hours and already over 1000 people have downloaded the game. Thanks to all who have written me so far - I'm going to try and reply to all of you but you'll need to be patient because I'm very busy with my real job at the moment. (Keep em coming though!)
Initial release : v0.990
What is it?
This is a port of Ultima 3 to the Gameboy Color. I programmed it entirely in C using GBDK. In addition to the original game, there is a brand new game that takes place immediately after you defeat Exodus. The new game (which is pretty much just as extensive as the original) includes:
What does it look like?
Where can I get it?
Click on the Gameboy above or click here
What should I read before I play the game?
The one thing that seems to cause confusion is the menu. When you press the "A" button, you will be presented with a menu of options (Attack, Board, etc...). If you press the D-Pad left or right, you will get the 2nd set of options (Transact, Unlock, etc.)
Where is an emulator I can use to play this?
Most emulators will run the game fine. The one I've been using for testing (due to the fact that it's free and works quite well) is Rusty Wagner's (now un-named) emulator. You can download it here.
Credit Where Credit is Due
Naturally, I must give credit to the creator, Richard Garriott. Also, let me just say that all trademarks/logos/whatever are property of their respective owners. Blah, blah, legalese. In addition to the Ultima 3 material, there are several songs that I converted from other C64 games. (One of which is Legacy of the Ancients - another personal favorite)
I hope lots of people will get a kick out of playing Ultima 3 on their GBC's.
