The amazing sequel to Ultima III, I don't think Ultima IV came to the Macintosh originally in the 1980s, or it'd already be here. This version is a modern remake for Mac OS X, and the download is a beta (v1.0b3) to which they now say many known bugs have since been fixed, but I couldn't get newer versions working right away. Ultima IV is now available for free from a variety of sources, but this one runs in Tiger, Panther, Leopard and maybe other Mac OS X. The map included in the first download is I think an image obtained from some other source.

This developers page still at "xu4.sourceforge.net" shows that this v1.0b3 (2005) is a last version when activity ceased until their project was transfered elsewhere many years later. They say bug-fixes exist in newer versions.

A new version of Ultima IV is now available for free at "www.gog.com/game/ultima_4" (Good Old Games) ... but it wanted an account of me just to get the free download. If anyone can assemble a newer version that preferably is also Tiger friendly, please do.
