Zachary Black of ZSculpt Entertainment has released a new beta version of his modern updating of the black-and-white classic Dark Castle. This title in progress brings color graphics, particle special effects and many gameplay tweaks and new levels to the original Mac "platformer." The demo is a public beta of sorts which Zack is using to gather feedback on bugs, gameplay features and stability.
Here is a list of changes in this most recent beta:
Many thanks to those of you who are digging up bugs, and providing detailed explanations. It has helped me immensely in tracking them down!For a mixture of nostalgia and a new appreciation for this classic title, be sure and grab the demo. We recommend you read the "ReadMe" first, as the controls are somewhat more complex than most expect.

• Added the original "Great Hall" level from DC (changed to match standard gameplay)
• Added the original "Black Knight 1" level from DC
