Ultima II: Revenge of the Enchantress
Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress is the second in the series and takes the hero through various time periods on Earth. It combines a mix of fantasy and sci-fi elements.
The Enchantress Minax was the lover of Mondain, who you killed at the end of Ultima I. She’s manipulating the timeline to destroy the Earth. You must travel through the timegates to figure out what’s happening and stop Minax before it’s too late.
The Enchantress Minax can only be defeated by wielding the Quicksword. You’ll also need to Force Field Ring to travel back to the Time of Legends and confront her. The walkthrough below will take you through everything you need to do to successfully make it through this game.
