Touch Arcade: The Lords of Midnight Review

Touch Arcade: Mike Singleton's The Lords of Midnight [$4.99] was originally released for the ZX Spectrum in 1984, on magnetic cassette tape. It was quite possibly the most ambitious game of its time, and you can see the roots of the modern open-world RPG in it as well as its influence on later strategy games and the development of the graphical adventure game. The iOS port is by Chris Wild, and his devotion to the game, and its sequel, Doomdark's Revenge is obvious. (iPad, iPhone, The Lords of Midnight) 4/5
