Escaping from the Castle of Mystery

To cut a long story short, you are (still) trapped in Castle Mackay and have found the treasure you were in search of in the original game. The aim of this game is simple, collect four sticks of dynamite, escape from the castle and blow it up on the way out! The game consists of four rounds (each of which has several levels of difficulty to progress through in order to complete them), three of which are included in this demo version. The Music Zone taxes your dexterity as you have to hit the correct notes on the keyboard within three seconds of them appearing on screen. Complete the song and you get your first stick of dynamite. The Plumbing Zone involves placing a network of pipes on screen in such a manner as to ensure that the water reaches its destination. Easier than the Music Zone but still requires a bit of thought. Finally, the Runaround Zone involves exploring a maze and finding your way to the hidden stick of dynamite within a given time limit. The Gamble Zone is disabled in this version as are lots of extra graphics, sound samples, bonuses and such like which are included in the full version. If you're into puzzle type games, you'll enjoy this one. Needs 1 Mb.
