Another rare and sought out video game is up on eBay; Ultima – Escape from Mt. Drash. Taken from Wiki, it says that “in the game, creatures called “garrintrots” have imprisoned the player in Mt. Drash, and the player’s task is to escape the dungeons.The game itself is a very simple series of three-dimensional randomly generated dungeons, and the idea is to destroy all monsters that stand in way and exit to the next level. There is a time limit as well. The game doesn’t employ custom graphics, but rather uses the VIC-20’s standard set of graphical characters to draw the game scene.”
The seller started the auction at $2500 which close to what the game goes for.
“Ultima Escape from Mt. Drash, original cassette and manual. For the Commodore VIC 20. Worked last time I tested it, you need a RAM expansion cart for your VIC to run it. Cassette has wear, some of the letters worn off (see pictures). I accept USA based paypal accounts, must be verified and confrimed. Item will ship to the confirmed address, no exceptions. Will ship with insurance and signature confirmation. No out of USA shipments with paypal due to high shipping cost, possible customs fees and not always reliable tracking. I would consider out of country shipping if you pay by check drawn on US bank or some sort of money transfer, no paypal”
Although the casste isn’t in the greatest shape, this is truly a gem in the video game world and rarely pops up on eBay.
