Topic: The Eternal Castle Review - Bringing Back That CGA Aesthetic
Posts: 4971
Location: Melbourne, Victoria

In the 1980s the CGA monitor was a display device that you often saw listed when setting up a new PC game to play in MS-DOS. Offering up four-colors alongside a very limited resolution, it should come as no surprise that very few modern titles with retro-ambition opt for this primitive display method. The Eternal Castle, a new game in the style of Prince of Persia or Another World, does. With plenty of style to spare.

The Eternal Castle is an interesting proposition, a remastered release of a seemingly long-lost relic from the early days of PC-games. A time when monitors were defined by how many colours they could display at once – with CGA offering up four, and EGA 16. The Eternal Castle [Remastered] retains the four-colour CGA presentation of the original 1987 release, with more modern mechanics and features added to ensure it can still resonate today. Although primitive compared to the capability of modern hardware, The Eternal Castle is further proof of the idea that limitation breeds creativity.
