Dark Castle is a platforming game developed and published by Silicon Beach Software, first released in 1986 for Macintosh, designed and illustrated by Mark Pierce, and programmed by Jonathan Gay. The game revolves around Prince Duncan, who must defeat the evil Black Knight by going through the four sections of the castle: Fireball, Shield, Trouble and Black Knight, dodging objects as well as solving puzzles. It was later released on other platforms by Three-Sixty Games, including DOS, Apple IIGS, Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari ST, Sega Genesis, and Philips CD-i, the latter two of which were made notorious by content creator The Angry Video Game Nerd's review of the game.


An MSX version was released in 1993 by MNS Soft, exclusively in Japan. Almost no information can be found on either the game or MNS Soft, and it's primary evidence for existence is a GameFAQs page describing it's release information.[1]
