Castle Master, Commodore 16/Plus4

A 1992 homebrew conversion of the fourth Freescape game, Castle Master, coded by Tanacs Attila (aka “TGMS”), with additional graphics by P. István (aka “abcug”).

Again: Hungarian coders prove their worth on the homebrew converting scene by doing an excellent job of the translation. Castle Master on the Commodore Plus4 (it requires 64K of RAM to run so is technically a Plus4 release) is playable, atmospheric, and engrossing. And maybe a little confusing… Read the manual if you want to play Castle Master properly. Or find a walkthrough.

Like all Freescape games: it’s slow, but it’s worth a play out of curiosity or nostalgia.
