Castle Shadowgate - A port of the Adventure Horror game 'Shadow Gate' for the C64

Gamers and retro gamers alike you are in for a serious treat today! As Shadowgate, which is an incredible adventure classic originally from 1987 by ICOM Simulations and released for the Amiga, Apple II, Atari ST, DOS, Macintosh and NES, is now available to play on the Commodore 64 by Donnie Russell. As in the words of the creator "an official version was never released (or developed?) for the Commodore 64. This is a new port of the game, heavily based on the popular Nintendo Entertainment System version".

The original classic was a brilliant horror adventure game that really involved you in the dark story and contained some pretty horrific deathly sequences, especially if a puzzle wasn't done the correct way. Fast forward to today however and we have a new Castle Shadowgate to play; a port of this classic game which features multiple rooms to visit, dangerous choices, puzzles to solve and music throughout.
