The Lords of Midnight

The Lords of Midnight


Mike Singleton's '84 classic Adventure Strategy game, brought to and updated for Android.

"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

I've tried to make this compatible with as many Android devices as possible without actually owning them all. Hopefully we won't have too many hiccups along the way! If you have any issues please please contact me through www.thelordsofmidnight.com/support so that I can work with you to resolve them.

"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.”
– Multiplayer.it

"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."

The Best Game Ever - Now on Android! I have been a fan of this game since the ZX Spectrum days and consider the best game ever created. This version, made in memory of it's original creator Mike Singleton, is a very accurate version with updated graphics but still keeping to the original style - A real labour of love. If you know it from it's Spectrum days, then just download it, you will get exactly what it says on the tin! If you are not old enough to remember that far back, download not just a piece of gaming history, but a real masterpiece of strategic game play. Command huge armies across a beautiful rendered world, make adventure for the Ice Crown and defeat the evil Doomdark. The author is now working on recreating Singleton's other epic, the sequel Doomdark's Revenge. I've never purchased a game for a phone before, but this was one of the best and most worthwhile £2.99s I have ever spent. It plays like a dream. Still just has hard to beat as the original. However, the controls just flow and it works a treat. I have nothing but massive praise. Very well done.... Just buy it!

For Midnight! For Midnight and the Free!! Fantastic recreation of a wonderful game, devised by one of the most ingeniously devious minds of my generation...I was greatly saddened to hear of his passing. Lord of Midwinter, eh? Beautiful touch! :D Mike would have loved that! He once said (in an interview with an old computer mag - HCW or C&VG) that his ambition was to write the computer equivalent of chess...a game that would still be played thousands of years from now! Well, in my future incarnations, I reckon I'll still be playing it! :) Haven't managed to recruit him yet...think I need Luxor...even Rorths can't get him, but I'll have fun finding out :)

I didn't get it. I just didn't get into it and I really tried to. Maybe I'm missing something...

Like an icy blast from the past Such a wonderful recreation of such an original game. I cannot say how many times I played the original on Spectrum and Commodore, but I look forward to vanquishing Doomdark once again. Well worth every penny. Now for Doomdark's Revenge...
