Description of Dark Castle

MobyGames says it all:

Dark Castle is a platform game that relies more on timing and careful planning than quick reflexes and shooting things. It's clever--a thinking man's platformer. One thing that contributes to this is a completely 360 degree firing direction. When you throw a rock, you can rotate your arm to any angle. This takes time to learn effectively, but after about half an hour, it really helps knock out some enemies threatening to get you.

Fun, but frustrating :)

Nice! Played this on my freshman dorm on my roommate's 1st generation Mac. Was the only person on the hall to finally topple the Dark Knight, and certainly put in the time to do it. Graphics not as good as I remember, but had lower expectations back then. F'ing bats!

I grew up with this and BDC on a mac plus my dad got from a coworker. This was pretty much my favorite game for years, and I still love it. The black and white graphics in this game on the original mac version are second to none, IMHO.

Avast stopped my download of the Mac version because it said it was infected with MacOS: cdef-A

One of the best games ever on the Mac. I used to play this at Wang Towers when I visited my dad and he had to stay late
