Gurk II, the 8-bit RPG

Gurk II, the 8-bit RPG


The super-charged sequel to the famous 8-bit RPG, Gurk II is a huge new adventure with all of the most requested features added: quests, music, sound, potions, and an improved look! Fans of the original will be shedding tears of joy as they roll for their character's stats, board ships, summon monsters and cast powerful area of effect spells. Players not previously familiar with the realm of Gurk will simply stare in slack-jawed wonder at the beautifully pixelated graphics, all the while being serenaded by the lush and authentic MIDI soundtrack. Only the viscerally-compressed sound FX and challenging new combat tactics will snap them back to their senses. This game radiates a pure and unabashed joy of old-school RPGing; your $1 couldn't possibly go any further now, or back in 1986 when these kinds of games were actually commercially viable. Enjoy!

User reviews of Gurk II, the 8-bit RPG
simple, nice, interesting with old-school graphic + some music game. It's what I was looking for

I really like this game but have 2 recommendations for Gurk III... 1. Don't have so much experience between levels. Doubling up is too much! It takes 80,000 to get to lvl 13 and 160k to lvl 14. I know the game is beat by then but it's still fun to gain more levels. 2. Allow multiple games. I had to erase my super strong game to start a new one. I'd like to have up to 3 different parties/games. --- Great Game!!

Great game! This game is great fun for exploring new Ares and questing. I loved the Ultima games and still play them. The two things I would love to see where this game could do even better is to add more character customization within each class as you level and the ability to name characters/name main character.

Love it! It's very much like Ultima III that I played in the 1980's...and that's a great compliment! I have written games like this myself...VERY nicely done! Thanks! I will be trying the other gurk games as well.

I love Gurking It This game is awesome. So simple and yet fun at the same time. It inspires me to learn more about Android game develop so I can create something this awesome.

Love it - Like a just-a-little-bit-more-crap Ultima! Slack jawed indeed. Can't get enough of this Ultima style gameplay! :-)
