Most text of the present article comes from the feature on American imports by Julian Rignall, as published in the fourth issue of the British C64 magazine ZZAP!64 (August 1985).


Parker Bros

Mr Do's Castle was the mildly successful follow up to the arcade smash Mr Do. The game takes the character from the original game and puts him into a new and highly original scenario.

You are put onto the bottom of a platform-type screen. There're 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 at the top of the screen when you start and which follow you. These track you rather well and pose a large problem even on the lowest levels.

There are two ways of getting rid of them, wait until one 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.

The 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.
