The first of a trilogy by Mike Singleton and his team, Midwinter finds you
on a frozen island after the next war. Life would be great, but the island
is being invaded by a military force that wishes you no good at all. The
3D snowscapes are pretty good, and making your way across the island,
recruiting allies and obtaining new vehicles and kit, is highly
atmospheric. When you're cold, exhausted and wounded, finally catching
sight of a friendly building, half hidden between the peaks comes as a
genuine relief. There are also some rather tasty fractal routines used in
the map facility. Mr Singleton has spent much of his career creating games
in this particular theme. The innovative "Lords of Midnight" is perhaps the
best known example. In Midwinter the technology may have changed, but the
objective of defeating a numerically superior enemy, either by making
alliances and recruiting, or like Frodo in "The Lord of the Rings" or
Sheridan in Babylon 5's "Z'ha-dum", making your perilous way to the enemy's
base and bringing it down around his ears.
Somebody please patch this to run on my 1200!

Thanks to the indefatigable Sven Schreiber, this game now does it's funky
thing on AGA machines, making use of faster processors and, of course, the
hard drive. Thanks Sven!
