Castles of Dr. Creep is a 1984 Commodore 64 game written by Ed Hobbs and published by Broderbund Software.

This project is an open source rewrite, allowing you to play the game using an image (D64) of the original disk.
Additionally, a Castle Builder has been added allowing the player to modify existing castles, or build new ones from scratch

Presently it can compile and play on both Windows, Nintendo Wii, FreeBSD, MacOS X, and Linux (Ubuntu specifically has been tested).
