i]Akalabeth: World of Doom is a very early computer RPG. In fact, when Richard Garriot finished the game, he sold it in ziploc bags at the computer store where he was working at the time, encouraged by his boss. That was 1979, but the next year it saw a commercial release by California Pacific Computer Co. for the Apple II platform.

Even after the evil has been vanquished, there are still many foul creatures plaguing the land. It is your task to get rid of them.

Selling only eight copies, it wasn't a commercial success either, but is spawned one of the most successful computer RPG franchises ever.
