Martian Dreams, also known by its full title, Ultima: Worlds of Adventure 2 - Martian Dreams, is a role-playing video game developed and published by Origin Systems and released for MS-DOS in 1991. It is the second game in the Ultima: Worlds of Adventure series. Like The Savage Empire, the game uses a modified version of the Ultima VI Engine. The story revolves around the Avatar accidentally being shot from a giant cannon to Mars along with several Victorian-era dignitaries.



I've only watched the intro of this game, I never tried to play it.


I have never played this game for more than a couple minutes, and, since I haven't heard many positive reviews about it, I doubt I'll ever try to beat it.


Box Art

The box art features a Victorian woman and man gazing at the Red Planet through a port hole of the ship. The woman's face is a bit jacked, but the painting is really good and makes great use of colors. I also like the lettering.


Like most Origin titles, the game had a wealth of interesting manuals and maps to pore over.



Let's play.
