Return to Dark Castle Beta 4 / Cow Catcher 1.6.1
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

MacGameFiles recently acquired two new additions to its library of downloads. First up is the Return to Dark Castle Demo Beta 4. Based off the very old-school Dark Castle games, it features new levels, a larger playing area, and color graphics, all coupled with the same gameplay players of the originals should find instantly familiar.


Here are some notes regarding this release:

1) You do not lose lives in the Beta versions.

2) Scoring is not implemented.

3) Some levels are missing certain items, monsters, etc. They will be added in the next release.
Next up is the eponymous Cow Catching Game, updated to version 1.6.1. This Open GL-based game holds the distinction of being one of the first games that required OS X to run. The game's premise? Simply catch as many cows as you can within the three-minute time span. Not exactly earth-shaking, but it can be good mindless fun.


Both of these files are now available for download. Links to MGF have been provided below for convenience.
