Description

Chocolate Castle is a simple yet innovative sliding block puzzle game. The relatively simple gameplay combined with the pixelated graphics and chiptune music gives it a retro-style feel.

The object of the game is to eat all of the chocolate blocks in a room. Click and drag an animal onto a chocolate block, and it will eat all of the connecting chocolate blocks of the same type. There are four different animals; a bear, a dog, a bunny and a pig. Each animal can only eat a certain chocolate type; brown (bear), dark-brown (dog), white (bunny) and pink (pig).

You can slide around the blocks by dragging them with the mouse. When you slide two or more blocks of the same type next to each other, they stick together and you can then only move them as one block. Other gameplay elements include snakes, cats, Turkish delight which act as a bomb when eaten by a cat, movable blocks and magic movable blocks that you can only move once.

The rooms can be played in any order, and during the game you can rewind your steps with the undo button. There are 3 difficulty levels, each with 40 rooms. The castle in the main menu has 40 windows that light up indicating which rooms have been completed. There is a built-in editor to create more rooms.

One interesting technical aspect is that the external files for custom rooms and room solutions are stored in text format instead of binary files. The text format makes it easier to share the custom rooms and solutions online and via e-mail, simply copy and paste the text.

Trivia

Balloons

When you make a snake eat a bunny or any other character and then complete the room, all balloons are black instead of yellow, orange and pink, mourning over the death of the little critters.
