LOWERLANDER is the sequel to Flat Black's 2015 somewhat-acclaimed retro-rpg, Lowlander!
"Lowlander II is a great game, possibly the most enjoyable, largest and best produced game of its type available that’s not got the Ultima name attached to it. " - My Boxed Universe
**** 1/2 stars from TouchArcade!
Yarak means business. She ain't got time for you! Get that armor on- there's adventuring to be done!
Generations after the mighty LOWLANDER vanquished the nefarious Azamon, a new villain has arisen. The evil enchantress, YARAK! The realm needs a new hero -- will you be the one?
Styled after the early Ultima games from Richard Garriott, Lowerlander will make your iPhone 7 Plus feel like an Apple II+. That's a good thing! Plus, Lowlander's new sibling packs the same one-handed portrait-style gameplay that sensible people prefer!
TouchArcade had this to say about the first one’s shameless imitation of Ultima II: “4.5 stars ... Lowlander is an interesting case, because it's not often that a game paying direct homage to a classic is actually better than said classic.” Unquestionably undeserved, but that’s high praise!

Ratings and Reviews
Not an early Ultima game, but it should be.
I had been looking for an Ultima-style RPG like this one for a while and I’m glad I found Lowlander and now this game, Lowlander II.
It is a truly entertaining, addictive, and multi-layered game that will keep one playing and never become bored. There are new surprises in every town, castle and dungeon and the people in the towns are hilarious. I cannot recommend this game enough.
In your quest and multiple mini-quests, you discover improved modes of travel as you fight enemies (human, beast and inhuman), keep up with your food supply, upgrade your weapons and armor and discover the means by which to finish the game. Yes, there is an end, but I wish there was not one.
All mini-quests are logged so you will not have to try to remember who to contact in which town, etc.
There was an error message in my game but the developer, himself, kindly fixed my game and sent it back to me. There is even a “Contact Developer” button in the options screen.
Will there be a sequel? When you play this game, you will only hope so.
Amazing game, perfect timewaster
This game might look pretty rough on the outside, but it is a well crafted game that can take countless hours off your hands. The story took me days upon days to complete, and all the quests in between were intriguing and some were actually pretty funny. There are many references and secrets here and there, and I’ve only ran into a one or two bugs.
One of the best RPGs on iOS!
Don’t be fooled by the old school graphics, this is a deep game with a huge world. Progression is smooth, with just the right amount of grinding to improve your character. The story, characters, and dungeons are all interesting. Best of all, the game is FUN! And no in app purchases! Easily worth the money if you are looking for a great RPG on iOS.
