Iron Lord is a computer game originally developed by Orou Mama and Ivan Jacot for the Atari ST and published by Ubisoft in 1989. It was ported to several contemporary home computer platforms. It became renowned for the long delayed release and its chaotic development.[citation needed]

Its genre is medieval multi-arcade, a similar genre to Cinemaware's Defender of the Crown.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World approved of Iron Lord '​s graphics but criticized its performance and load times, especially as it could not run from a hard drive. The magazine nonetheless concluded that the game was "an above-average combination of adventure, strategy and action gaming".[1] The game was reviewed in 1990 in Dragon #159 by Hartley, Patricia, and Kirk Lesser in "The Role of Computers" column. The reviewers gave the game 4 out of 5 stars.[2]
