Doomdark's Revenge

01.png
Beyond Software 1984
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum
A sequel arriving all too promptly is a sure sign to be cautious. It is true today and it was true 35 years ago, even with shorter development times back then. With Doomdark's Revenge the overall impression isn't so much that it is a sequel already planned when the first one was in the making, but rather that developer Mike Singleton just carried on programming after releasing Lords of Midnight.

Sometime, the time is just right. In 1984, along with its contemporary Elite, The Lords of Midnight broke completely new ground. To really understand how revolutionary it felt, you have to take yourself back to the computer gaming world of the early 1980s. The video game console market had just crashed. Somewhat affordable computers were slowly making their way into people's homes (hence "home computers"), but gaming-wise, the formulae inherited from the arcades and already imitated by said failed game consoles were still the norm: simplistic twitch gameplay, usually on a single or few screens. The only thing added in home computer context was the occasional puzzle or board game, ported over straight from the physical world. And then, out of nowhere, these new games came along.
