Review from Dan Svensson
Great game bad GUI Game is great but the GUI gets in the way of the game. It's a constant switching of screens to look up information when most of it could easily be displayed in one way or another on the main screen. I would myself change a few things * If in a location where other characters are present then the Select icon should change to show this * If grouped with other characters this can be shown on the main screen by showing miniature shields of the other group members on the large shield * The choose icon can be eliminated and the different icons from that screen can be displayed along the bottom, with some exceptions - The think button should be removed altogether as the large shield on the main screen does the same, the Exit, undo and back to dawn buttons can be placed under the android settings button(the 3 vertical dots) * Enemy armies within the immediate area of characters should be seen on the discovery map just like animals and such * Time of day should be better visualized on the main screen than the colors dimming, maybe an hourglass or something or just a plain number showing how many hours left. * I should be informed when one of my characters is killed. ..more
Mike Singleton would be proud! I remember spending hours playing this as a kid, making elaborate maps on graph paper... I'd known about your PC conversion for years and happily found this today. And now I can't stop playing as I relive my youth! Thank you for doing such a fine job on an absolute belter of a game. :)
A great strategy game from the past that will keep you riveted in the present. Please keep this old favorite alive and may we see the extra content in Doomdark's revenge. Thank you for making this available! Sad to hear Mike Singleton fought his last battle. We remember him with both fondness and admiration.
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 :)
Best Game Ever Returns..... I still have the original tape versions of LoM and DDR for the Speccy. They were so far ahead of their time and still work brilliantly now. I spent months at a time playing these games and kept coming back. I know there is a lot of positive nostalgia on the ratings, but it is well founded. To those few who find the pacing too slow i say that is the point; it is like a game of chess. Much much more strategy than most games around. Mike would be VERY proud of this version. Roll on DDR :)
A Must Buy A fantastic remake of a truly brilliant game! Brings back all the memories of weeks lost to this epic monster of a game back in the Spectrum days. A must for fantasy lovers, both young and old. This game immerses the player in a world like no other game I played back then or since. Unmissable !
