Mac|Life has published a new review of Return to Dark Castle, the third installment of the classic action series. The game sends players into the Dark Castle to vanquish the Black Knight and his evil minions. Mac|Life gave Return to Dark Castle a score of 3 out of 5.
From the review:
As in the originals, gamers run, jump, and toss rocks through dozens of levels. And the controls are as responsive—and the levels as unforgiving—as ever. We died dozens of times trying to make it through certain rooms, finally mastering each step to survive. Despite the challenge, Return to Dark Castle’s levels usually seem fair, where we felt responsible for winning or losing. That balance shows how well the game’s almost-unchanged controls have held up.Check out the full review at the link below.
Mac|Life: Return To Dark Castle Review
Other aspects of the game haven’t aged as well. The sound effects seem lifted straight from the first games; the fidelity is great, but we wanted more additions. At least the musical score matches the pacing of different levels. The graphics resemble a colorized version of the originals. We like that approach, but the 640-by-480-pixel resolution looks slightly blurry in full-screen view and wastes the sides of wider displays.
