Default Trying To Find A Game..

Alright.. my mind may be fuzzy on this.. I haven't played the game in YEARS.

If I recall correctly, it's an incredibly old DOS game, in whihc you play a man just going through different rooms and collecting.. stuff? I dunno. I remember you had to press a whole bunch of switches that were connected (via wire-type things) to different traps.

You could also create your own rooms.



Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

Can you tell us a bit more about this game please.

Was it adventure, rpg, strategy etc?

Was it top-down view or side-on view?

Sounds more like a puzzle game to me. Chip's Challenge, perhaps?

It was top-down, and adventure, I believe. Something keeps telling me it's title had the word "castle" in it, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for bearing with me; I know I'm not being much help

I don't think it's any of those..

It has INCREDIBLY basic graphics.. like.. the kind you would see on an Apple //e :[img]http://www.abandonia.com/forum/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' />

I don't even want to know why I'm trying to find this game so bad; maybe it's just to relives a part of my childhood, I dunno.

And you're 100% sure it was a DOS game, right?

It's none of those.. but thanks for all your help, anyways.

I'm 99.9% sure it was a DOS game (Though, I think I was 10 at the time.. it might have been on an IBM machine..)

And there's pretty much absolutely no story whatsoever.. at least, I don't think there is.


I'm being pretty obtuse with this whole thing, I know, but thank you again for bearing with me.
