The Adventures of Bouapha: Spooky Castle is a single-player, top-down monster bashing adventure game.
The story behind this game is that organ bank has been robbed and all the stored brains have been taken. No-one knows who committed the crime but a big, green, slimy something was seen heading for the big castle up on the hill. Enter the eponymous Bouapha, a guy with a hammer and a knowledge of what is right and what is wrong. Brain theft is definitely a bad thing so off he goes to the castle to investigate where he fights zombies, assorted spiders and other nasties before facing the thing that masterminded the heist.
In this game the player explores the castle and its surroundings collecting brains and keys. They will also collect hammers which are the only weapon in the game, and pants of power which give the character extra strength.
The game is keyboard controlled and it has a save game feature.
The game was developed in 1998 and from 1999 it was sold by eGames Inc. under the name Spooky Castle both as a stand alone game and in a number of their compilations such as Galaxy Of Arcade Classics. In 2004 it was made available on the Hamumu Software website as freeware.
