Bei diesem Adventure ist besondern zu beachten, daß man von Anfang an alles beobachtet und eines Blickes würdigt, was einem in Textform plastisch dargereicht wird! Viele Hinweise auf die Lösung erfahren Sie bereits zu Beginn von CASTLE BLACKSTAR! Ein klassisches Adventure, das auch auf dem Joyce seinen Weg machen wird!

Castle Blackstar is a really great cassette adventure that should become a classic. I'm expecting my mailbag to expand a few more inches because of it.

'A good text adventure beats a mixed graphics/text one anyday, and Castle Blackstar ranks with Artic's best. But SCR had better reconsider their pricing - £8.95 is way over the top for what they offer. Otherwise a great start for a new company and I look forward to Artemis Quest 2. Exploring the inside of the castle was great fun, and I was impressed that turning a winch in one room actually operated something four or five locations away without my even knowing it until later when my apparently meaningless activity proved valuable! Beware of the fierce musical eagles (neat), and I hope you have more luck than me in getting a source of light to set about exploring the dark lower regions (sorry, Artemis, let you down there .) Great game, pity about the price.'
