Each room in Chocolate Castle is a sliding block puzzle. To complete the puzzle, you must clear the room of chocolate with a team of hungry little animals. There are four types of chocolate - dark, fudge, white and strawberry; and four matching types of animals to eat them with - a dog, a bear, a rabbit and a pig. The tricky part is shifting the chocolate into large connected blocks that the animals can devour in one go. As you move through the castle, you'll discover more puzzling trickery made from exploding turkish delight, snakes, slippery ice cubes, and magic blocks. With a total of 120

Personally, I really like Chocolate Castle. I got it on offer from MacZOT! a while ago, so I only had to pay around half price, which helped. Maybe it's a little on the expensive side at full price.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the graphics and sound aren't exactly state of the art, but it does have its own curious charm. Most importantly, though, it's full of quite intricate puzzles, and becomes reasonably demanding as you progress. The puzzles aren't so hard that you become stuck forever, but some of them are hard enough to cause a fair bit of head-scratching for a while.

So this is certainly not the flashiest or most exciting game out there, but it does have its own unique appeal, and for people who like puzzles it's well worth a look. I certainly don't regret buying it (albeit at offer price).

Only slightly interesting, far from engrossing.
Graphics are rather mediocre....sort of childish in a cutsypoo kinda way but then maybe this game is designed for children.
Musical background is banal, insipid.
Another overpriced game; many games seem to go for $19.95, but then few, IMHO, are worthy of that price.
The demo version allows one to play the first four games....and then ya gotta buy it to continue. Well, after playing them, I just shrugged my shoulders, yawned, and said to myself, "Eh, so what; I'd rather do something more interesting", and moved on.
