Demo version freely available, team on full production mode!

Madcap Castle is a 2D puzzle-platformer in an 8-bit gameboy-esque style, where you control a wizard who is exploring an ancient and mysterious castle in search of knowledge. Who knows what will he find in the end?

In this game you will need to use both your skills and intelligence to advance in more than 150 challenging levels full of obstacles like cannon balls, lasers and spikes. But fear not, because along the way you will learn many spells that will enable you to fix broken switches, light candles, shrink, teleport yourself, and summon bizarre creatures. All of those acquired powers will be critical to help solve challenges and even fight bosses that will test your reasoning and reflex.

  • Over 150 levels;
  • 9 unique bosses;
  • Speedrun mode;
  • 4 Color, 8-bit style;
  • Switch color palette;
  • Oldschool music themes;

The game is under active development by a team of 4 people. We are all very passionate about classic Gameboy games, and want to offer you the same retro puzzle-platformer experiences we loved in our pasts!

Currently we have a demo version with 45 levels that is freely available for download on our website The team is working hard for delivering the full version as soon as possible!

The game is being co-published and mentored by Industria de Jogos, check it out at

We are preparing to launch in the Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

Madcap Castle is a game that was originally created in 48 hours during BaconGameJam10 by Diel Mormac (@dielmormac), ending up as the winner of the competition. The game was originally named Mad Mage Tower by then. After that, Diel sought partners in the game development community who would like to continue the development and turn it into a full product, being joined then by Rubens Stephan (@ruhstephan), Guilherme Abel (@guiabel) and Mauricio (Malegra) Alegretti (@malegretti).

We would love to hear what you have to say about the game, as we are a small and constantly learning team. If you want to follow the development of the project and send constructive criticism and suggestions, we will be very honored to talk to you all!

I just played the alpha version on your site, and it was a pretty fun puzzle game, nice work! One question though; in the full game will you have access to multiple spells at once, or will it still only be one at a time?
