It’s been eight years since the Video Game Critic published a CD-I review and I’m happy to report they’ve written a new article about Dark Castle CD-i. Not surprisingly, they comment about the slow, unresponsive gameplay that this game holds. Still, Dark Castle is a special game because it was the very first platform game on CD-i. Scrolling was a known problem for the CD-I hardware and it shows in Dark Castle. What did surprise me were the first good words about the amazing sound effects and the superb graphics. I don’t really feel that way. The sound is OK to me, the graphics were low-res and muddy. And I actually didn’t find the gameplay not that bad at all. Ofcourse it’s nothing compared to the excellent platformers created by The Vision Factory (The Apprentice, Lucky Luke). Go read the review right here. We at Interactive Dreams published some history behind the Dark Castle CD-i port earlier before.
