    Default Lords of Midnight

    I just wanted to let people know that a fantastic remake of the groundbreaking 1984 8-bit game, "The Lords of Midnight" has been released for Z10 by Chris Wild of Chilli Hugger Software

    The Blackberry World link is here. The game's support site is here.

    And here is the official trailer - it starts off with scenes from the original 8-bit game and then switches to the wonderful remake:



    This game has had glowing reviews on iOS and Android, and is a Native BB10 build (it uses the Marmalade SDK to generate native code on each platform)

    I am not associated with Chris or Chilli Hugger in any official way, but I do know Chris and like him have been rather obsessed with LOM ever since it was originally released over 20 years ago.

    If you fancy a challenging and above all unique gaming experience, please consider supporting Chris and buying the game. Please note that this game was officially approved by the late Mike Singleton, author of the original title, and indeed Mike worked with Chris on this remake.

    A version of Doomdark's Revenge, the sequel, is slated for release next - please support this software house to ensure they continue to support BB10.

    As an added bonus, the game purchase is valid across both BB10 and PlayBook.

    UPDATE (15 January 2014): At elite1's suggestion, here are some screenshots from the Z10 version (the PlayBook version looks and plays identicallly):

    I've just had word from Chris Wild of Chilli Hugger Software to say that The Lords of Midnight has had its price cut from 2.50 to just 75p! (I think that that works out to about $1 US).

    I don't know whether this is a permanent price cut or just a seasonal promotion but
    If you fancy a game that makes you think and takes you back to the days when game play was king, I'd urge you to buy and give it a go.

    Chris also hinted that the sequel, Doomdark's Revenge might also be coming to BB10.

    Doomdark's Revenge confirmed for release on BlackBerry. Woot!

    No firm release date as yet but it's probably a matter of weeks rather than months.

    Thanks for sharing news on these releases and the YouTube video link!

    But I think most members would appreciate if you added some screenshots to post #1. Thanks!

    Downloaded on both my Z10 and my PlayBook yesterday. Never finished the game off when I had my old Spectrum back in the day, now hopefully I can. Thanks for the dedicated work to get it onto BlackBerry.

    Whoosh! ? Z10 in action! ?

    Hi Knighty - no need to thank me, I didn't do any of the coding or have anything to do with the game other than being addicted to it in all its forms (old skool 80's versions and current remakes). I'm only posting here to spread the love!

    @elite1 - I will get some screenies up asap. Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been off work with a prolapsed (sp?) disc in my spine so have been tanked up on medication and as such have not been keeping up to date with things recently.

    Got word from Chris at Chilli Hugger that Doomdark's Revenge has been submitted to the various app stores, including BlackBerry World

    I'll start a new thread with screen shots once it's out and I have downloaded it and played it a little.

    Also, Chris is apparently going to release an updated version of Lords of Midnight that better supports the Q10/Q5 screens.

    Sad news: Chris has stated that he can't afford to support BlackBerry any longer. Not because of sales (although he's only sold about 100 units on BlackBerry World compared to thousands on iOS, Android etc) , but more because of the way that BlackBerry actually make it hard for small devs to operate.

    Read his post here:

    Happy days! I've persuaded Chris to put The Lords of Midnight back into BlackBerry World and for good measure he's giving away free copies through to the end of August

    To grab your free copy, swipe down from the top to use the Redeem option. Use voucher code LOMFREE

    As I have already purchased the game, I can't say for sure that this will work - Chris thinks that he has it all set up correctly - please let me know here if not and I'll feed back to him.

    This offer is also valid for Doomdark's Revenge (separate voucher code is available on that page - I'll head over there now to post the details)
