Akalabeth is back to the role playing world!

Experience the origin of a whole universe!

Akalabeth, World of Doom - was developed in 1978 by Richard Garriott, creator of the famous Ultima series. It marks the beginning of computer role playing games, and is one of the first programs featuring 3D graphics on a home computer. It's also the first computer game featuring Orcs and Balrogs.

This app is an accurate replica of that genre defining classic, bringing the feeling of a true legend to your iPhone, iPod or iPad. You can't get more retro than this!


✭ Exact recreation of the original Akalabeth - World of Doom!

✭ Find the castle of Lord British and enter extensive 3D dungeons on your quest to become a knight

✭ Become a fighter or a mage and increase your stats during your quest

✭ Fight increasingly dangerous monsters the deeper you advance into the dungeons of Akalabeth, until you finally encounter the legendary Balrog

✭ It's still as immersive and fun as it was 30 years ago!


✭ Elegant readjustment of the original keyboard controls for fluent touchscreen gameplay

✭ Original retro graphics and sound take you back to those glory days...


A few helpers have been carefully added in consultation with Lord British himself, to make the Akalabeth experience more enjoyable on your iPhone. If you are after the authentic experience, deactivate them.

✭ Autosave - re-enter the game where you left it

✭ Start near castle - have a quicker start into the game

✭ Minimap - find your way through the dungeons

✭ Search for Lord British's castle to receive a quest

✭ Buy lots of food in the beginning

✭ Beware of Gremlins, they will steal your food

Our thanks and dedication go to Richard Garriott, also known as Lord British, for his consent and support, and for all those hours we spent in Britannia...

4/5 stars

A Good Old nostalgic port

Back in the stone ages when cavemen ruled the earth, and dinosaurs roamed free, Richard Garriot laid the groundwork for the ultra popular Ultima series with Akalabeth, World of Doom, a game that was revolutionary because of it's open ended gameplay and strict resource management. The game has been brought over to the IPhone beautifully. All of the same graphics sound and difficulty are here, including the extremely annoying thieves and gremlins. These enemies steal your food and items, and even when you finally take them down, you CAN'T get your items back. Annoying enemies aside, this game is still very fun, and it's a fascinating piece of video game history. It's worth your $2.

4/5 stars


It is really fun, but you have to get used to it.

4/5 stars


Great app. Reminds me of being a kid again. It used to take my Apple ][ 10 seconds to draw the Balrog on it's screen.
