New Return to Dark Castle Screens
8:26 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story

Delta Tao, producer of such games as Spaceward Ho!, Eric's Ultimate Solitaire and Clan Lord, has released new screen shots of the final chapter in the Dark Castle series. Return to Dark Castle has been in development for over four years now, and some had given up hope it would ever appear. But lo and behold, work is still being done!

This full-color makeover of the original Mac game has certainly been a long time coming, but will be worth the wait. A deft mix of platform-style gaming, realtime puzzles and hilarious graphics and sounds, Dark Castle was a big hit in its time and is truly a member of the pantheon of Classic Mac games.

From developer Zack Black:

It's coming... The long awaited sequel to the classic games, Dark Castle & Beyond Dark Castle, has been in the works for about 4 years now. I know, I know... "What's taking so long!?" Rest assured, the wait will be worth it. I'm doing my best to make sure die hard DC fans will not be dissapointed. The giant DC3 will have all levels from the original 2 games, remastered to full color glory, plus dozens upon dozens of new areas to explore. So while I slave away, check out these cool screenshots
So head to Delta Tao and see the wonderful new pictures. If you are old enough to remember the black-and-white original, these color pictures should bring back fond memories of one of the most addictive -- heck, one of the first! -- games on the Mac platform.
