Castle Dain

“Castle Dain is a mini-RPG game for the Apple II computer programmed entirely in assembly language. Nothing flashy — just pretend you’re playing this in the early 1980’s. The game is fairly intuitive. You pick one of 4 characters, and fight from 20 different types of monsters in turn-based combat. The castle has 5 levels; some with puzzles to solve. However, each floor has a locked door blocking the stairwell to the next level. Therefore you need to find the key to continue on. When you win a battle, you earn experience points that are used immediately to boost your attributes: Strength (battle strength), Dexterity (defense), Vitality (your life/hit points), and Max Vitality (which sets a limit on your Vitality). Possible treasures may include a potion (healing), scroll (magic missile), or amulet (protection). It is important to read the descriptions in the rooms to know where you may need to travel to next. There is a definite ending to the game: confronting and defeating the evil wizard. (One of the many motifs you encounter in the game.) There is also a save option when you exit through the front of the castle.
