Flat Black Films released Lowlander for iOS and Android back in 2015. It was a tile-based, exceedingly retro RPG that was basically a homage to Ultima 2: Revenge of the Enchantress. Lowlander II: Lowlander is a follow-up to that game, and builds on the same excellent formula that made the first game so enjoyable.
And, like its predecessor, this game homages Ultima 2 rather heavily. Indeed, if anything, it is positioning itself as the Ultima 2 to Lowlander’s Ultima 1, as the game’s synopsis will make clear:
Generations have passed since the infamous deeds of the mighty Lowlander. Now the realm needs another hero — will you be the one?
The evil enchantress, Yarak, means business. She ain’t got time for you! Get that armor on – there’s adventuring to be done!
Flat Black Films boasts that Lowlander II features about sixteen hours in its main story, with a huge world to explore and expansive dungeons to delve into. In a refreshing break from current market trends, Lowlander II also features no in-app purchases; once you buy it once (it retails for $3.99 USD), that’s all you’ll pay to experience the game in its entirety.
You can pick up Lowlander II via the iOS App Store if you have an Apple mobile device; ports for Android and OS X are coming soon.
