This section would not be complete without mentioning the most successul Spectrum title of them all? Sabre Wulf is a maze game, but with some of the most beautifully colourful graphics you'll find on the Spectrum and enough clever features to make it stand above the crowd. The premise is similar to the likes of Atic Atac: find the four parts of an amulet and escape from the jungle. Snakes, scorpions and natives are just a few of the terrible beasties that pester Sabreman from start to finish, but fortunately he is armed with a trusty sword with which to see them off. It's enormous success just goes to show that although countless other games used similar ideas, Ultimate did it best.

CheatsTrivia
There are no cheats on file for this title.Ultimate hired outside developers to make Sabre Wulf ports for the BBC Micro, Commodore 64, and Amstrad CPC platforms, and the game was subsequently included in multiple compilation releases.It won "Best Maze Game" in the 1984 Crash Reader Awards.The game begins with an electronic rendition of classical music composed by Bach. The Spectrum and Commodore 64 versions have an optional two-player mode in which players take turns controlling Sabreman.Sabre Wulf was Ultimate's first game to use what would become the company's standard price and mysterious, unadorned packaging. Ultimate nearly doubled its usual retail price in what they saw as a "bold step" to combat piracy. They expected legal owners to be more protective over letting friends copy their more expensive copies. Ultimate had seen competitor prices slowly increasing and felt that their full price was fair for their time invested.Sabre Wulf later appeared in the 1985 compilation They Sold a Million, a collection of Spectrum games that had together sold a million units.
