What do you call "complete Ultima Underworld"?[edit]

The line "A complete version of Ultima Underworld" can mean two things to me. It can mean both Ultima Underworlds, or it can mean a more complete version of the first game (whatever that would be). I think this need clarification, but since it seems to be based on a copy and paste from http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/ultima-underworld-the-stygian-abyss/trivia (currently at the bottom) (not my idea of authoratiative) this might be difficult to confirm or deny.

Complete vs. a demo version of the game. There was a demo version of Ultima Underworld that was included with Ultima VII and PC Gamer always (at least back when I was getting it) comes with a disk of demo and shareware games but occasionally includes complete version. -- Fenyx4 19:53, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
I rewrote the note slightly, since I have a copy of this CD. It does contain the full version of Underworld I, as well as Ultima I and 10 other games. Its listed as a "classic games collection". I added the same note to Ultima I. Browncoat Jayson 20:13, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

FM-Towns Port[edit]

In the Trivia section is mentioned: "The Japanese FM-Towns version came with a truly bizarre trinket: an Ankh Paperknife!"

Why is this FM-Towns port not mentioned in the "Differences between the ports" Section?

Because there are no differences. It is a 1:1 copy, so there was nothing to write about. I nonetheless now have put a mention in.--Tribun 14:51, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

PC 98 version[edit]

There was also a PC 98 version (1993) of the game, but is (just like the FM-Towns) identical (except for the text) to the English PC version. It contained a set of translated manuals, a paper map (slightly different layout as original) as well as an ankh-shaped paperknife as trinket. --Arthgon (talk) 11:17, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
