You, the avatar from the other Ultima adventures, see a gate appear from the world known as Britannia where you have gone on countless adventures. This can only mean one thing: Britannia is in trouble again. You step through the portal to see gargoyles looming over your body which is on some kind of slab. Suddenly, Iolo, Shamino, and Dupre, your friends from previous Britannian adventures come to your rescue at just the right moment, and your adventure begins.

In Ultima VI: The False Prophet, Lord British, the King of Britannia, tells you of a new peril that has befallen the land. Gargoyles have been attacking everywhere, and are currently present at all eight of the sacred Shrines of Virtue. You must fight off the gargoyles at the shrines, and find the runes that can seal them from further invasion from the gargoyles. However, things are not always as they seem, and you will be led on many adventures, and interaction with hundreds of people, and gargoyles.

To travel the vast world of Britannia, you will walk on foot, buy a skiff to travel rivers, acquire the deed to a ship which can bring you across oceans, and eventually contruct your own hot-air balloon that can carry you anywhere you want. You are also aided with a moon orb, a strange stone that can transport you instantly to almost any town or shrine. This game is full of puzzles and riddles in the form of dungeon exploration, and in actuality, the game is less combat-based than most role-playing games. In combat, players can equip various weapons and armor, and up to 48 different spells. Part of the challenge, of course, is finding a teacher for these spells, and the components to cast them. Actions are menu-based, when the avatar performs an action, several options such as "look", "talk", and "item" come up.

Another notable feature is the "Karma" system. Since the player is the avatar, an example of goodness, some actions such as stealing from houses and lying to characters will hurt the Karma score. Low Karma results in a loss of experience when a character dies, and the game cannot be finished if Karma is too low. The game will take most players around 20 hours to complete, but can take up to 40 or 50 if they care to find out all of the game's many secrets and puzzles.

After producing a few Ultima games that took place in various realms other than Britannia, Origin Systems has placed the Avatar back in a very familiar environment for Ultima VII: The Black Gate.

Many things have changed since the glory days of Britannia after the Avatar set things right in Ultima VI: The False Prophet. It has been 200 years in Britannian time since then and the world is truly in a sorry state. The Shrines of the Virtues have fallen into disuse, savage racism against the Gargoyles has forced them to reside almost entirely in a single area and a debilitating disease is sweeping the countryside.

To further exacerbate the situation, a cult-like organization known as The Fellowship is offering entirely too easy answers to all of life's problems and a huge demonic entity calling itself The Guardian is promising massive destruction across the land. Needless to say, Britannia needs the Avatar's aid now more than ever.

Previous Ultima games, since the 1983 release of Ultima III: Exodus, have had generally the same main interface -- main screen in the upper left, characters on the right and other information on the bottom. Ultima VII: The Black Gate breaks the mold and uses a completely new layout.

The entire screen is the playing area and other information only pops up as a "window" of sorts. Characters are handled with a "paper doll" view that serves as the repository where equipment and weapons are placed for use. Conversations (with their corresponding character portraits) also pop up and pause the action.

Ultima VII: The Black Gate features 256-color VGA graphics and offers no support for lower formats. Musical support, conveyed through dozens of MIDI songs, is available for both Ad-Lib and SoundBlaster compatible cards. The game's effects use SoundBlaster technology, providing an alternative to the PC speaker sound effects of previous Ultima games. As the main story unfolds, the Avatar comes upon situations requiring deep thought as well as more standard combat-oriented problems that are dealt with easily. There are dozens of different styles of weapons and armor available and combat is handled through real-time movement with your party user each controlled by a specific pre-scripted AI style of your choice.

From the city of Trinsic, where the quest begins, to strange locales like the Ethereal Plane and your final confrontation with The Fellowship and The Guardian, Ultima VII: The Black Gate attempts to provide players with a memorable, unique CRPG. The game, as in previous titles in the series, combines classic RPG style with anachronistic real-world dilemmas about race, religion and revolution.

Ultimate Fighter has four distinct modes of play (Story, VS Tournament, Battle and Animation), giving the game more variety than the average brawler. There's turn-based combat (attack, dodge, use magic), one-on-one fighting action, and side-scrolling action (complete with boss battles, ninjas to kill and items to collect). However, gameplay is hampered severely by sluggish controls, slow characters (karate experts, wrestlers, boxers, etc), and repetitive action. Adding to the misery are flat backgrounds, moments of unintentional humor, a slow frame rate, weak, repetitive sounds, and a haphazardly thrown together concept.

Umihara Kawase (海腹川背?) is a series of platform games, starring a nineteen year old Japanese school girl of the same name, who has somehow become lost in a world of mutated salt-water and fresh-water creatures.

Gameplay:
The game world of Umihara Kawase is constructed from a set of interconnected levels known as fields. Each field connects to one or more fields deeper within the game via doors.

Fields are enclosed areas containing a number of static and moving platforms, ladders, spikes, enemy sea-life and one or more exit doors. The doors are often positioned in hard to reach places and it is the player's goal to plan a safe route to one. Each exit door in a field takes the player to a different field.

One completes the game by finding a safe route through the fields and finding a door to exit the world. Each of the Umihara Kawase games contains multiple routes through the fields and multiple exits.

The Umihara Kawase games have simple controls, she is able to run, jump, climb onto ledges, climb ladders and most importantly throw her fishing line.

U.N. Squadron is an aerial combat game from the developers at Capcom. The game is set up to scroll from left to right with enemy crafts entering the fray from both sides of the screen. There are three selectable characters in U.N. Squadron, each flying a different type of war plane. Shin, the game's only female fighter, flies an F20 Tiger Shark. Mickey, a slim, blonde hero, wages battle in his F14 Tomcat. Finally, Greg, a portly, bearded hero with dark hair, destroys enemies in his A10 Thunderbolt.

Before each flight mission, players have the opportunity to buy weapons, shields and fuel to bulk up their planes. During each mission, pilots earn additional money to be spent on subsequent missions. Each mission includes numerous small enemies -- in the air, on the ground or in the sea -- several mid-size enemies, and one large, strategic enemy target. Players can usually dispatch the smaller enemies with one shot, while larger enemies will only fall under a barrage of shots. U.N. Squadron features eight levels.

Uniracers is a unique creation that lets one or two players control 1 of 16 different unicycles, each of which can perform a number of speed-enhancing flips, rolls, twists and other stunts that fans of BMX and skateboarding will especially enjoy. There are more than 60 different twisting, turning, looping, obstacle-ridden tracks, which are seen from a side-view perspective. Silicon Graphics work stations, the same equipment employed for creating Donkey Kong Country, were used to bring life to the colorfully animated, strangely endearing unicycles. The music rocks, and the graphics are crisp, clean and flawless, even when the game is moving at breakneck speeds.

The Untouchables puts you in charge of ridding Chicago's crime element through five multi-level stages involving different modes of play: "Downtown Shootout" is a fixed third-person shooting game which involves using a shotgun to blast mobsters appearing through windows and on the street; "Gun Run" is a side-scrolling third-person shooting game that finds you on the waterfront with a Tommy-gun; "The Courthouse" is a top-down shooter which has you rescuing hostages and disarming a bomb; and "Counterfeit Operation" is a 2D side-scrolling platform game requiring you to locate missing counterfeit plates in a well-guarded warehouse. If you make it through these four stages, you'll be able to confront Al Capone himself in a first-person shootout on the rooftops. There's also one important thing to remember: all levels have a time limit! The Untouchables is based on the short-lived remake of the 1960s television series, which aired from 1993-94.

Urban Strike is the third game in Electronic Arts' Strike series for the SNES, and this time the war will be fought on American soil! Evil media mogul H.R. Malone plans to overthrow the U.S. Government. The Strike C.O.R.E. has learned of the plot and needs you to disable all of his military operations.

The game features over forty missions spanning ten levels in key U.S. cities, such as New York, San Francisco and Las Vegas. Three new vehicles are at your disposal, including the Mohican and Blackhawke assault choppers and Ground Assault Vehicle (GAV). For the first time in a Strike game, you can now journey on foot for certain missions (many of which are timed!) in your campaign to defeat H.R. Malone.

As in previous games in the Strike series, the emphasis is on action as you fly into well-defended combat zones. Nearly everything can be destroyed, which is important since many buildings contain extra fuel, armor and ammo to help you reach your objectives. Cinematic cut-scenes will help explain the story after each level and a map screen will help you plan out your mission in detail.

Utopia: The Creation of a Nation is a strategy video game.

Taking place in the future and on a new planet, it is the player's task to colonize the new planet, manage the colony and raise the quality of life for the citizen in order to reach utopia.

Initially the player has a few colonists with a lot to do. The player needs to build everything from scratch. Building takes time and free colonists, in addition to money. Buildings under construction are depicted by scaffold.

However certain buildings require personnel (hospitals, labs, mines, factories, shipyards ...) and therefore the player has to engage in population management. The player also has to micromanage features such as tax rate, birth rate and trade.

In addition, each world also has a competing alien race which is trying to colonize the same planet. There is no option to form alliances, which means that the player's population must come into conflict with the aliens. The player never actually gets to see the alien city, as it is located outside the playable map, but must instead rely on espionage to find out what the aliens and their city look like.
