Heh, reminds me of Ultima III. I was working on a similar game when I was in highschool (1985, 86 or so). Never completed it. It was called Bigshots In Space. You started off on a planet, 64x64 square (just like Ultima III) you could wander around and enter towns and dungeons (just like ultima III) but you also had a spaceship and could fly around to other similar planets (procedurally generated) land, and wander around, etc. There wasn't a whole lot to do, other than wander around. Wish I still had that stuff. I wrote it in Turbo Pascal for DOS.
