Do's Castle was the mildly successful follow up
to the arcade smash Mr Do. The game takes the

many levels to a screen, resulting in quite a maze of
ladders and walkways. On the walkways are panels which
you have to knock through the floor. To complete the
screen, simply knock all the panels through. Did I say
simply? Oh, I forgot to mention the things which appear

walks underneath you and drop a panel on its head in
Mr Do fashion. The other way is to knock down
the three special panels which will give you a key.
Go to the top of the screen where the baddies emerge
and unlock the door. This will send them running away
in terror as they are now vulnerable to your hammer,
so run after them and give them one good bonking. If
you manage to kill all the baddies, then you'll automatically
go to the next screen.
graphics and sound are identical to the arcade game
and the game itself is a tough and challenging one.
I enjoyed playing it and it makes an ideal follow on
to Mr Do.
