The release of The Lords of Midnight on iOS is bittersweet. Its creator Mike Singleton - who crafted the 1984 original and worked with fellow developer Chris Wild to produce this enhanced edition - sadly passed away in October of this year, and so wasn't able to see his most famous offering gain a new generation of fans.
Singleton's death imbues this re-release with poignance. However, even without that The Lords of Midnight would still be worthy of acclaim - largely because it's one of the most expansive and epic video games ever made, and the years that have passed since its original release have done little to dull its astonishing impact.
A timeless classic is reborn on iOS. The Lords of Midnight has lost none of its ability to captivate and entertain, and serves as a fitting tribute to Mike Singleton's genius
