Classic '80s text adventure Doomdark's Revenge has just been released on the App Store.

Originally developed by Mike Singleton and released in 1985, Doomdark's Revenge was the follow up to his earlier game The Lords of Midnight.

Continuing the original game's story, Doomdark's Revenge casts you in the role of Luxor the Moonprince. After destroying the Witchking in the first game, Luxor must now do battle with his daughter, Shareth the Heartstealer, in order to rescue his bewitched son.

With five races to recruit, each lead by their own lord, you must build allegiances and friendships to grow your army before marching on Shareth's forces. This is easier said than done, as many lords can only be approached by forging bonds with other characters in the world.

Doomdark's Revenge's first release was met by critical success. Nearly 30 years later, it will be interesting to see the updated version - complete with new visuals and interface - will find a new audience.

If you have a lust for fantasy, adventure, and enjoy a good book, Doomdark's Revenge is available on the App Store now for £2.99 / $4.99.
