Only just tried this game. Can't speak for a full playthrough but quite excellent based on initial impression. Good game design decisions with the joystick interface, and fantastic use of the 6502's full abilities. Very nice.

There are two large resolution .jpg "instruction pages" on atariage.com, plus photo(s) of the limited edition disk label. These should be included here.

why did we have to wait so long to get such good quality games? Nice show of the A8s graphic capabilities and nice audio.
It would seem the A8 has gone beyond what the creators of it even thought it would do.
Greetings to one and all faithful Atari collector/users.

Reminds me of Fire Emblem. The one-button interface is a bit confusing, not sure what the different colors mean when you stop next to a hostile unit. But good job putting everything onto a regular joystick.
I find it works best at 150% speed, the opening text crawl and in-game music is too slow otherwise. Adjust to taste! ^_^

This is a great game which technically has been put together to the highest order. It's a little frustrating and difficult, but it does make me want to have "just one more game".

The game is automatically saved after each level. To load it just use the "Continue" option.

great work! superb done!

only pity, you can't save or choose level from where to start with.

thx for that game, just played it >3hrs now hehe, the village gets quite hard, have to figure out best tactics. but makes fun :)

His Dark Majesty (HDM) is one of the greatest A8 games ever made! It's more of a turn-based strategy game than an RPG game, very similar to the Langrisser series and even a bit like Final Fantasy Tactics.

Now if only there's a version for VBXE... :)

Wow, it's really nice to see someone write another outstanding and playable game for the Atari 8-bit! I love this game, its a lot of fun and very engaging!

His Dark Majesty is one of the best Atari 8-bit games of all time. Fantastic gameplay, controls, performance, sound and graphics. It's like Archon has met Ultima III battles! Great work.
