App description: Mike Singleton's '84 classic Adventure Strategy game, brought to and updated for iOS.

"The Lords of Midnight is not simply an adventure game nor simply a war game. It was really a new type that became known as an epic game, for as you play the Lords of Midnight you will be writing a new chapter in the history of the peoples of the Free.
You will guide individual characters across the land of Midnight on vital quests but you will also command armies that must endeavour to hold back the foul hordes of Doomdark, the witch king. Yours will be no inevitable victory." - Mike Singleton 1984

"Lords of Midnight does story-based, large-scope, high-fantasy warfare better than most titles I can think of, iOS or otherwise."
- Rating 4/5- PocketTactics.com

"This is an outstanding remake and developer Chris Wild, should feel very proud of creating such a superb celebration of the mans work."
- Rating 8/10 - Metro

- Rating 4/5 - TouchArcade.com

"App of the Year!"
- Rating 5/5, Mirror.co.uk

"It's an unmissable remake. Few titles weather the storms of time as well as this solid-gold classic."
- Rating 4/5 - PocketGamer.co.uk

"A must own title; pure genius and extremely entertaining. Recommended."
- Rating 98/100 - Arcade Life

Made of extremely bright colors and clean lines, a stylistic choice that was and still is very original.

"Despite the perfectly adapted touch controls and crisp graphic presentation, this is a proper 1980s they-dont-make-em-like-they-used-to game"

"If you love a game, love the games creator and want to produce an updated tribute heres your benchmark. Almost thirty years old and yet it feels fresh, relevant and completely at home on a touch screen. Recommended without reservation so good it makes me want to cry."
- Arcade Life

"Original, longed for and a perfect adaptation of a legendary game. Unlike those Spectrum conversions that are strictly for nostalgia lovers, Chris Wilds Lords of Midnight will enthrall any gamer who thinks he has what it takes for a true battle of wits where only the most brilliant commanders will survive."
- Louise Mensch, Mirror.co.uk

"Lords of Midnight is an experience that everybody with a remote interest in games should have, buying into your characters and developing your own war stories is a wonderful thing. It is a game with hidden depths that deserve to be plumbed and I cannot recommend it enough."

For someone who isnt really at all familiar with the original, sell me on this game! Is it deep? Lots of gameplay? Lot of replayability? Loot? Unlockables? What is this game all about? What genre?

Also I have to say, I am usually a guy who does care about graphics, I dont LIKE that I care, I just usually dont like pixely games, however I can overlook graphics to some degree based on good gameplay. Having said that, that isnt even an issue with me this time, I really like the art style of this game (at least based on the screenshots). REALLY like. =)

Congratulations on seeing that prokect through! It must have been at LEAST a decade ago I stumbled upon the project, probably longer, and, for as long as I had the bookmark in my webrowser, I would check on it from time to time. I thought it might be one of those projects forever in beta/late alpha status. I even remember signing up for your yahoo group dedicated to the project.


Well, guess I'll pick this up then .
Thanks ok. In truth, the midnight engine pretty much did die. I spent too long on it, not really focusing because of too many other commitments and Jure got bored. It was only the release of the iPhone that it got going again.

Skipped Karateka and Penny Arcade and buy this. No time to play it for now.

AFAIK, Bill Harris of Dubious Quality recommends this also.

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

Me too. Being not of the ZX generation, what is this? An adventure game? A war game? Choose your own adventure?
