[Retro C64] The Castles of Doctor Creep – Freedonia

The Castles of Dr. Creep (III) – An arcade-style puzzle/strategy game from 1984.

I owned a Commodore 64 for 12 years. And yes! It was the SAME machine I bought in 1982 and was still running when I finally gave it away. (Still kicking myself for that!)

This particular game was a ton of fun and provided many hours of game time.

Thanks to Ed Hobbs for making such a great game. (Dude, REMAKE IT FOR THE PC!!) ;)
