Wizardry Began on The Apple II, Comes Full Circle as it Debuts on The iPhone

Wizardry has to be one of the longest lived franchises in gaming history — and is especially beloved by us, because the dungeon RPG’s first-ever appearance was on an Apple II. Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls will be the newest title in the 30-odd-year lineage when it debuts on November 3 for the iPhone.

The game will be free to download and play up till the sixth level, at which time users will have to pony up $10. We don’t know much else, and the teasers aren’t overly helpful (here’s the press release). What we do now, though, is that next week’s release won’t include an iPad version, which is sad.
