Sega Master System / Mark III / Game Gear
This really is a huge RPG, but luckily, there is a battery game save option to make things easier. The graphics are slightly better than Ultima's character sprites, making this look a bit like Nintendo's first Zelda game. The emphasis is heavily on the role-playing though, so it doesn't really have rhe some universal appeal.
