Aim of the game

You are stuck in a castle which contains five floors with around 40 rooms per floor. The objective is simply to find the three parts of the Great Key of ACG, which will open the main door and let you escape.

Game play

Run around shooting things, pick up food to restore health and search for the key pieces. There's also the secret passages - which ones you can use depends upon which character you select, whether knight, wizard or serf. For example, some secret passages are concealed within the large barrel-vat things on the walls, and others are behind the grandfather clocks, but only certain characters can use those passages.


"Fast moving [and] fun to play."

Simple enough, but an all-time classic arcade-maze game. There are "unofficial" versions of Atic Atac on the Amiga PD scene.
