Many years ago, a mad doctor and his creepy crew moved into a dilapidated ruin, known as Creepy Castle. The moon is full, the bats are on the wing and the surrounding woods are alive with werewolves. The evil doctor kidnapped an innocent girl, and it is your mission to find and destroy the evil, and rescue the little girl. But your quest is not easy at all! You'll have to battle wave after wave of hair-raising horrors to rescue their hapless victim. Enemies vary from werewolves, raven, ghouls, buzzards, spiders, skeletons to vampires and bats.
There are four locations to choose from: the woods, the graveyard, the castle, and the dungeon. The game is entirely in black and white. Actions include punches, kicks and throws, and you can also pick up more weapons (gun with silver bullets, axe), throwables (knives, rocks, etc) and power ups to increase your stamina along the way. Apart of the incoming creepy enemies, there are several trap along your way, especially inside the castle too.
Creepy Castle is a pretty polished and playable game, offering fast arcade-style action. It is considered one of the best games released for the Macintosh computers.
Graphics are fantastic, with various nicely drawn and animated sprites. All sprites are impressively animated, whilst screen scrolling is smooth. Each stage has its own design of great detail, and I wish I had a colored Macintosh to play this game back then! Really amazing job here!
The sound is at the same standards, being fully sampled and offering several high quality SFX such as voices, kick/punch sounds, screams and many other ambient sounds (thunders etc).
Music is some of the best here, with nicely composed spooky tunes at the main menu and when loosing the game, whilst there is no music during gameplay (but it doesn't need it, as SFX really fill the game well)
