Bit Heroes

Kongregate has given us some really interesting titles over the last couple of years, both through their official website and on mobile.

Well whereas most developers tend to use Ultima IV as a yard-stick for the start of their roleplaying experiences, Lowlander pays tribute to the significantly earlier Ultima II, the central part of the original Ultima Trilogy.
