    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.

    If you're interested in classic games, especially fantasy and/or strategy games, Lords of Midnight is a must-have. On the other hand, if you are an action gamer whose idea of "old school" is Goldeneye 64, you'll want to give this one a pass.

    One of the most acclaimed games of the '80s gets the modern makeover it deserves, with an experience that still feels as daringly ambitious now as it ever did.

    It's one of a very small handful of games that I would recommend wholeheartedly. I've yet to see such an impressive amalgamation of war gaming and the RPG genre, even after all these years. Just don't expect an easy ride.

    The iOS version of The Lords of Midnight is a good remake. It treats the original game with love and respect, although you have to be a big retro fan in order to fully enjoy it.
