acastle.jpgJohnBCastle is a short point-and-click game from the Japanese website Usagi no Sippo (Rabbit's Tail). It takes a page from the Grow book of Flash design and lets you create a scene by clicking various objects on the screen, each time causing something new and interesting to happen. As you might have guessed, the overall goal is to raise the castle, but there are a number of small things that happen just for fun.

Castle isn't a game in the strictest sense. You really don't have much control over what happens other than finding the next hotspot. It's sort of like a cross between a web toy and a game. Usually it's fairly obvious where to click next, but a few times you'll have to go hunting for places to click. Nothing our friend the [tab] key can't help with.

The greatest part of the game is all the strange things that happen for no reason at all. Sheep that fall into holes? Dancing mushrooms? Lamp posts outside of a medieval castle? All of these things along with Castle's great visual design make it worth a few minutes of relaxed play time.

Play Castle

Note: To play, choose "Click Start" and then click the crown at the top of the screen.

Cheers to Ttf for sending this one in!

A way to kill a few mins.

There's a 9 year old kid I know who loves non-threatening games. He's a huge fan of Knytt for instance. He just gets too intimidated by threat to even play. I usually send him links to games like this, but it's telling that I didn't even bother.

I didn't like how the reactions you got from clicking on stuff was totaly unrelated to whatever you clicked.

Is there a way to lose this? What are the endings you guys have seen? I guess screen shots are in order.

This game to me was like a daydream, it was delicate, but true - simple, but so complex. I enjoyed the wonder of what I was going to click on next!

P.S., The princess in pink was too cute!

I got up to the windmills and then got bored. Fun game... I guess... :P

Great! I had to tab only twice at the very end to get to the lovely conclusion. Very peaceful and fun.

I didn't really like it... no offense.

I suppose I'm the kind of person who likes to hunt for a challenge, and this wasn't a challenge. It's like an interactive abstract art that's interactions don't quite make sense. Eventually, I just got bored of hunting for hotspots and just Tab-ed my way through and watched the pretty animations.

Pretty, yes, but fun? Nuh-uh.
It was just OK.
