CASTLE OF DOOM! Video Game on SCRATCH

So I wrote this massive Pascal program back in college for my Artificial Intelligence class, but things happen over time. Floppy disks go bad. Computers don't have floppy disk drives anymore. And what about DOS? No one can type

A:\>CASTLE

No one even knows what an A prompt is!

I always loved the CASTLE OF DOOM! game. I had visions of buying an external floppy drive and finding a way to make it work, but then it occurred to me.

I could recode it on SCRATCH! I could make the graphics prettier. I could make the randomization better. And CODING IS FUN!

So I give you my second official SCRATCH game:

CASTLE OF DOOM!




(If you missed the first game, ESCAPE FROM KING TUT'S TOMB, click here.)

Play the game. See if you can escape from the castle with all the cool loot. And please tell your friends to play, too :)




You can read more about the game (and find maps of the castle) here.

You can visit the game on SCRATCH here.
