I am nostalgic for certain random things about old video games, even if I didn’t really have much direct involvement with them. One of those things is the aesthetics of old Mac games — that distinctive, pure, monochromatic look of black on white with no compromise like that weaksauce Spectrum and its pitiful application of limited color with all those awful halos. No thanks! If I can’t convert it to Bitmap mode in Photoshop, I don’t want any truck with it.
Anyway, the moral of this story is that Dark Castle is one of those games I never had any direct involvement with, so it’s up to Ben Elgin to let us know what is up with it.
