Throughout Dark Castle, Color Dark Castle, Beyond Dark Castle, and Return to Dark Castle there are many items to be picked up. Here is a list of them.

RocksEdit

Main article: Rocks

Rocks

This item is the main pick up in Dark Castle, found in each game in the series, and acting as your only source of attack towards the many perils of Dark Castle. Duncan's only way of attacking comes from throwing Rocks which will kill most Enemies in one hit. The Gargoyle is the one enemy that cannot be killed with just rocks, as something more is needed. In Return to Dark Castle, you need the Fireball to kill it.

Once the Fireball is obtained, all rocks thrown turn into Fireballs.

ElixirsEdit

Main article: Elixir

Picture 1


This item is a staple of Dark Castle, found in each game in the series, and acting as a major gameplay element. Elixirs protect you from rat and bat bites. In Dark Castle, Dark Castle Mobile and Color Dark Castle, when you are touched by a rat or bat when carrying no elixirs, you die. This was later changed In Beyond Dark Castle, and Return to Dark Castle, as a health system was included. The elixirs were made by The Wizard.
