Return to Dark Castle Beta 6 Released
11:54 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Z Sculpt Entertainment has just released Beta 6 of Return to Dark Castle, a remake of the classic black-and-white platform games we all loved to play on our Mac Classics. This latest beta has a host of bug fixes and new features, and is ready for public playtesting. Here is a list of changes:


  • Developed the weapon system for storing/retrieving weapons from your inventory!
  • Added the "Test Level" for debugging purposes, and for showing off new features, puzzle elements and character animations. (This level will likely change for future beta releases.)
  • Added the original "bump-wall" and "jump-into-wall" character animations
  • Added the original "head-bump-in-tunnel" character animation
  • Added the original "roll-off-conveyor-belt" character animation
  • Added some new "sewer" pieces, tunnels, and metal ladder rungs (w/ sounds)
  • Fixed incompatibility issues with VGA and non-standard monitors
  • The Demo playback feature has been temporarily disabled for this release
  • Fixed conveyor belt roll-off glitch
  • Fixed issues with using alternative weapons to defeat henchmen
  • More internal bug fixes

Grab the beta from MacGameFiles.
