Beyond Dark Castle is the successor of Dark Castle. It is a puzzle game which offers action genre gameplay in the Castle's complex mazes! It was released initially for the Macintosh series in 1987 and later ported to Commodore 64, Apple IIGS and Commodore Amiga computers (in 1989). Note that a sequel, Return to Dark Castle, was released in 2008
Beyond Dark CastleYou control Prince Duncan, and his mission is to find the Five Magic Orbs and return each to the Ante Room. Then you'll be ready to do battle to the death with the evil Black Knight, ruler of the Dark Castle. You start in the Great Hall in which you must choose one of the available 5 doors in order to enter puzzle stages. Its stage is a true test of your manual dexterity, reactions, alertness and, most of all, your nerves. Duncan runs, ducks, climbs and jumps as he fights off enemies through numerous scenes. Control involves both keyboard (for movement - direction keys) and mouse (for fighting). Many of the moving platforms are small, move quickly, and are at higher or lower elevations, which requires to be extremely careful with the jumps. Ropes come in clusters of three and are free to move back and forth between them in order to dodge falling enemies. He can also collect and drop bombs, in order to destroy several types of enemies in each screen, including snakes, rats, bats, mutants etc. There is a total of 15 stages, which come out of the 5 doors in the Great Hall.
Beyond Dark Castle is a great platform puzzle game offering a lot of fun and several puzzles to solve in order to survive and get to the final battle with Black Knight. The game runs on Macintosh with at least 512k of RAM.

Graphics look great even when running in b&w here. Sprites move relative smooth although controls feel a bit awkward at times. Each level is nicely detailed too.
The game offers a few sampled SFX, creating an eerie feeling of realism throughout the game.
