Castle Quest Solution
First go up the ladder on your right, go left at the top and along to the next
ladder. Jump the gap at the top of this ladder and go up to the other ladders
to collect the ruby.
Next, return to the starting leveland go right to the Troll's bridge. Start to
cross, and as the Troll emerges drop the ruby. When the Troll has taken it to
his lair, run across the bridge, through the wall and up the next ladder. Jump
all the gaps until you reach two parallel ladders: To cross them, get to the
edge of each one, press right and jump. Collect the first torch and then make
your way back and collect the gold bar. Practice getting on to the ladder will
come in useful later.
Return to the Troll, this time using the gold bar as bait. Now go back to
where you collected the ruby and take the second torch. Then go to the starting
level and get the remaining torch.
Descend the ladders to the bottom of the screen and block off the bottom of
the far left and far right ladders with torches.
If you climb the middle ladder and stand at the right hand side you can catch
all the red men.
Collect the torch you put at the bottom of the right ladder and leave it
slightly to the left of the middle ladder. The torch at the top of the middle
ladder should now be placed on top of the left ladder.
Now remove the torch at the bottom of the left ladder so that the red men will
run into the spiders' area. Quickly follow the first red man, collect the sword
and run out. Leave all the torches where they are for later use.
To get out of prison, pick up the stool, and move beneath the torch and, while
jumping, throw the stool upwards to knock the torch down. Stand on the stool to
get onto the porch above the door, and from there throw the torch at the bed:
The guard will run in and you can then jump down, grab the stool and leave.
Store the stool and (using jump and up) climb the ladder just left of the
prison. When the guard goes past come down, pick up your objects and kill the
guards with the sword. You can now go up the ladder safely.
At the top turn right, go to the edge of the wall and down the ladder there.
At the bottom, go left to the large gap and store your sword. Jump off the edge
and land above where you picked up the torch.
Make sure that the line under the stored objects is under the sword before
jumping off to the right.
Recover the sword and kill the guards (beware, they move quickly), then
collect the aqualung on the left of the screen.
Hold the aqualung in your hands, and jump off the edge, where you first landed
in the water. Go up the ladder on your left and make your way to the pillar
where you collected the first torch.
Jump off the edge, and when you are over the bucket press P. Make sure you
still have the aqualung in your hands, put the line under the bucket and while
you are still in the water press D, R, S, and P in that order. The bucket is
Go back to where you left the torches and use them as described above to catch
the red men. Let them into the spiders' area but this time go to the left hand
side and through the wall.
Go down the stairs and across the gaps, recover the bucket ready for the witch
and when she is close, throw the water to kill her.
Keep going left for the gap with the wand in it. Leaving the sword at the top,
jump into the gap, pick up the wand and store it. Next recover the stool and
use it to get out and pick up the sword again.
Move left and climb the next ladder. Recover the aqualung and follow the path
past the coin into the water. Climb the ladder to your left and go towards the
Descend the ladder before the bridge and jump the two gaps to the other side.
Go down the ladder here and kill the two yellow guards with the sword. Move
right, but don't go up the ladder or into the water. Finally, recover the wand
and throw it right (at the wall) to reveal the Treasure.
