About the Story

A choose your own adventure game where you’re out to steal a fantastic treasure from a creepy old castle.

Multiple endings! Riddles! Monsters and booby-traps galore!

Can you survive the night in the Castle of Doom?

A fairly easy game, this game is suitable for all skills of player, even those unfamiliar with text adventures. The game can be replayed multiple times to find all the different endings (some of which are secret) and find all the horrible booby-traps. The game features very minimal descriptions of violence and as such is pretty much suitable for anyone.

Gothic fantasy and simple fun, June 15, 2021

You learn something new every day. For example, that people still made games in TADS 2 as late as 2015. Or that the same TADS 2 has a CYOA library. Good to know!

As for the game itself, it's a light romp cobbled together from Gothic horror cliches with a sprinkling of generic fantasy. It's a short game with little text, well-suited for a kid for example. Surprise deaths abound, but "undo" works. Choices are mostly well-clued however, more so than in other similar games, so that shouldn't be an issue. Supposedly it's replayable, too, but I didn't try.

And that's about all there is to say about Castle of Doom, but you know what? Sometimes a light snack is the best thing. Just don't expect more.
