Beyond software, producers of best-selling Psytron have done it again. This is a superb game and a must for all 48K Spectrum owners.
ZX SpectrumCrash!
Beyond have produced a game of immense complexity that transcends the simple word-matching of the mainstream adventure and in many respects more resembles a strategy war game. Many features of the game are new or are developed to an elaborate degree setting new high standards in Spectrum software.

Wobei hier anzumerken wäre, daß “The Lords Of Midnight“ ein “Winterspiel“ ist. Und noch etwas: Programmautor Mike Singleton merkt im Vorwort des Begleitbuches an, daß es drei Möglichkeiten gibt, das Land “Mitternacht“ zu erleben. Sei es als Fantasy/Adventure-Spiel, als rein strategisches Spiel oder sei es, daß man ‘nur‘ die vielfältigen grafischen und inhaltlichen Facetten dieses Programms sehen will. Letzteres allein schon lohnt die Anschaffung. Eine wirklich phantastische und phantasievolle Art der Unterhaltung, die zudem der Kreativität des Spielers keine Grenzen setzt.

One of the most involving and atmospheric fantasy wargames you could hope to play, and unusual in it's use of "landscaping" - a method of presenting a view of the terrain in all directions, giving the player 32000 possible panoramic displays.

Lords of Midnight was a classic on other machines and I'm glad to say that the Amstrad version lives up to up to all my expectations.

The combination of war-game and adventure means you can play one or the other or both depending on which you prefer - but either will take a long while to complete. The graphics are exceptionally good and with so many detailed locations mapping is strongly recommended.
Commodore 64Zzap!
Introduces a unique game-playing format. The game's atmosphere and uniqueness make it very compelling. A vast land to explore, an immense amount to do.

If you love fantasy and wish to immerse yourself in a genuine tale of epic adventure, Lords of Midnight will provide the authentic taste of Tolkien or Donaldson as any game yet produced.

Although daunting at first, pursuing the (extremely difficult) quest without restraint is highly liberating. The lack of any linear structure ensures patience and dedication are required in amounts as sizeable as the map itself, but it's easy to see why Lords of Midnight remains a cult favourite.
