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 man’s work."
- Rating 8/10 - Metro

- 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-don’t-make-’em-like-they-used-to game"

"If you love a game, love the game’s creator and want to produce an updated tribute – here’s 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 Wild’s 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."
iOS Best Port/Retro Gamer of the Year"

Excellent remake of an 80s classic
Warning to potential buyers. Understand that this is a remake of a very old game, albeit a game that still stands toe-to-toe gameplay wise against some of today's RPG classics. If you approach it with a bit of imagination and commit to appreciating the simplicity of it, you'll have a blast. This game does things that The Elder Scrolls doesn't even attempt. It's one part role playing game, one part strategy game, one part puzzle game and has the permadeath mechanic of a rogue like. You've never seen anything like this, unless you were there 30 years ago when it was released. This version has some very nice presentational updates that make it look good on mobile devices.
A fun game with a lot of atmosphere packed into a fairly simple set of mechanics. I think there are a few areas that could use some work. That said the game is well worth the money.
This game has an incredible ability make me want to fall asleep. It's epic how stupid this game is.
