It's the old story of a peaceful kingdom governed by a wise king, who dies without naming a successor. As a result, his six sons get greedy and want the best parts of the kingdom for themselves. You play the part of one of the six sons, preparing to battle it out with your brothers. Midi Wiz uses an overhead view like Nethack and Gauntlet and is a sort of trading/conquest game. You must increase your armed forces, build fortifications and of course trade goods with others. The use of magic to invent things (a bit like Dino Dudes but not so much fun!), create dragons, elephants, healing potions etc, all adds to the appeal. As the name suggests, Midi Wiz allows several computers to be linked together in a Midi network so that you can compete against others in real time. As the game runs on any Atari computer, you could easily link up an ST, TT and Falcon in a network. This unregistered version does not let you save your progress, limits the size of the network to three computers and has a few more restrictions.
