Abandonware DOS title

Castle of the Winds

Castle of the Winds (1993, by Saadasoft) is a perfect example of an atypical roguelike (no ASCII, runs in Windows) turned into a liberated game. Surprisingly Castle of the Winds is still very playable to this day, if you can make it run under a recent version of Windows.

    Loved this classic.
    Spent lots of hours playing this game between tech phone calls in my office.

    I cannot count how many of my childhood hours were dumped into this game. It's one of those genres that I feel were broken by the advancement of gaming.
