Mike Singleton's 1984 fantasy role-playing game The Lords of Midnight is now available for Windows PC, according to the game's official website.

The downloadable PC version features high-resolution graphics, updates to the original's landscaping techniques, a new discovery map and mouse control. These features were implemented by developer Chris Wild, who assisted Singleton with development on the iOS version of the title prior to the designer's death in October of last year.

Players can purchase The Lords of Midnight directly through the game's website for $5.99 (£3.99, €4.49). The game is also available for Mac, iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Blackberry Playbook and z10.

The Lords of Midnight was originally released in 1984 for the ZX Spectrum 8-bit personal computer, with Commodore 64 and Amstrad CPC versions following later that year. The game follows the adventure of four heroes — Luxor the Moonprince, Rorthron the Wise, Corleth the Fey and Morkin — on their journey to destroy the Witchking of Midnight, Doomdark. Players can obtain up to 28 additional lords for their army, and have the option to spend game time strategizing and recruiting these lords to wage open war, focusing on finding and destroying Doomdark's power source or both at once.
