Retro Gamer Sizzler

Retro GamerI’ve had a lot of good reviews for The Lords of Midnight so far. The support from the on-line press has been staggeringly good. But I felt very different when I was handed a copy of this months Retro Gamer. It includes a two page spread review, and the game is awarded 90%, A Retro Gamer Sizzler.
I think that part of it was that it’s the first printed review that I’m aware of. But I think the main thing is that it feels old school, a printed review with a Crash Smash style award. It feels right. Holding the magazine in my hands made me feel really good. It feels properly retro!

“The new touches are practical, the refreshed graphics look great on a retina screen, while the gameplay remains as engrossing as ever – a timeless classic wonderfully remastered for iOS and must have for adventure fans” – 90%, Retro Gamer Sizzler – Retro Gamer.

  1. Absolutely brilliant, but to be fair, wouldn’t be retro gamer if it didn’t pay appropriate attention to retro remakes, especially those which are outstanding

  2. Must have been like reading Derek Brewster’s review all over again Chris?! The latest version has fixed my slowdown by the way so many thanks. David.

  3. Could not agree more . You have done an excellant job , this game means a lot to me , it was the first game i brought for my spectrum and in fact the reason i decided to buy one, this game was to different to anything out at that time i just had to play it . It goes without saying , but as a teen i played this to death until Doomdarks Revenge came out .

  4. Nexus 7 version. I don’t remember this happening in the original.

    I recruit army’s from the south and move them north. On the new day they have gone. There are no enemy’s near to have destroyed them, they have simply disappeared.

    • You mean you take armies from one keep and place them in another? if they had been destroyed then the Doomguard would be guarding the keep.
