> SPOOKY CASTLE by Atlantis Software


• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Spooky Castle is a simple little platform game, and as the name suggests, you have to run around a castle filled with spooky creatures. Your aim is to rescue Princess Clare from the evil ghosts, which is achieved by collecting keys and making your way through the castle rooms.

The graphics are okay and it plays quite well. It's nothing special, but a bit of fun for a short amount of time.


Ah! The Princess...


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: If you reach the last room, you can see the princess at the edge of the screen. Once you reach her, you have completed the game. A congratulations screen pops up which tells you that the king knights you for your heroic deeds, and offers his daughters hand in marriage, which you accept. The game then ends.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Don't bother. I've given one point for actually having an end screen and one point because the text is multi-coloured. I'm feeling generous. 2/10.
     
  • Vinny: I first stumbled on this game when I was looking through a list of Atlantis games to see if there was anything worth crazy hacking. Fortunately, I found this little platformer, which I found to be quite sweet, but lacking in places. You can grab the crazy hack that I created from the download section above.

    As for the ending... it's a basic message screen that could have been so much better :( 2/10 from me too.
  • Andrew Fisher: Hmm, typical Atlantis fare - basic platform game (although there are some nice graphic touches) and a poor ending.
  • Brendan Fisher: A little bit more than a bog standard congratulations, but still not great.

    A better ending would be spurning the Princess and running off with the King!
  • Gaz Spence: Typical budget fair of a type that Atlantis 'excelled' at. Ending is so so but not the worst by any means.

FINAL SAY: Very dull. It's just a page of text.

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
