Sabreman is still battling with danger - this time he's trapped in a huge underground labyrinth. The meanies aren't deadly, but bash the little hero about nevertheless. Failing large distances is fatal, and there are a lot of huge drops which may be negotiated by riding bubbles of volcanic gas. or by using a rope to get down and across chasms. Weapons need to be collected in order to get past particularly big meanies, which block strategic parts of the maze.

THEN
"Undenwurlde is certainly no Atic Atac Part Three - it's a totally original game that will keep you enthralled for ages. ULTIMATE's graphics need no explanation, but an obvious item missing is the Hall of Fame (but I'm sure the spare bytes from this went to a good cause). ULTIMATE have come up with another excellent game. I especially liked the volcanic bubbles on which you can stand and ride, and the eagles which carry you all over the place."

NOW
"I must have been one of the first people to complete Underwurlde. I played it in all my spare time until I reached the end, and what an anti-climax it was too! The game didn't really offer anything new in format but it was very compelling. At the time I think we all overlooked the fact that all in all it was just a big maze game with pretty graphics. There are a lot of games around today which are very similar to this, and many of them involve doing more than just getting out of a maze. The ratings should all be put down to the low eighties or high seventies as the game has dated considerably.
