Description

The War of the Solstice is a remake of Mike Singleton's 1984 8-bit classic adventure game "The Lords of Midnight". The remake remains as faithful as possible to the original game, while adding touch screen controls for the Android platform.

You start the game with 4 characters: Luxor the Moonprince, his son Morkin, Rorthron the Wise, and Corleth the Fey. By recruiting other Lords in the land of Midnight you must defeat the evil Witchking Doomdark in his fortress in Ushgarak.

The Ice Crown is Doomdark's greatest weakness, as well as the source of his terrible power. Help Morkin find the Ice Crown and discover a way to destroy it, ending the battle once and for all.

The game ends when either:

* Morkin and Luxor are both killed
* Morkin is killed and the Citadel at Xajorkith falls

In order to claim victory:

* the people of the Free take Ushgarak or
* the Ice Crown is destroyed
