In 1998, the next game in the series was released: ''Magic and Mayhem''. Many of the spells and game mechanics are recognisable from the earlier games, but the move to the 32-bit PC platform brought substantial improvements to all areas of the game. These included, for the first time, a single-player campaign with a scripted storyline: Rookie wizard Cornelius arrives home from university to find his uncle Lucan missing, and goes in search of him. It becomes apparent that much more than Lucan's life is at stake.
