Sarah and the Castle of Witchcraft and Wizardry

There is an intruder in the most famous Wizard castle in the land. "She looked to be about eighteen." said a staff member of the Joke Shop. "She shopped in our store and purchased one of our most popular items, a Headless Hat. Then she had a long discussion with one of the owners, and I overheard the two of them talking about a map. The next thing I knew she was gone. Since it is mid summer, there aren't any students in the school, but I think she heard so much about the magic castle, she probably wanted to explore it".

Instead of reading about the intruder in a story, why don't we actually follow her around the castle in this audio adventure from PCS Games.

In the game you are Sarah, an American teenager, visiting the Castle of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the first time. You discover that a mischievous ghost has picked the pockets of the students leaving for the summer holidays and sprinkled money and magical items throughout the castle.

Somewhere in the castle, you will find and use wands that increase your powers, a two-way mirror, Extendible Ears, racing brooms, a Time Turner Necklace , and a very expensive invisibility cloak. With all that and more, Sarah won't have to go through the corridors of the castle unprotected.

The Castle of Witchcraft and Wizardry game transports Sarah and you into a world of fantasy filled with secret passageways and hidden chambers. You will explore the castle, searching for magical items, fighting creepy creatures knowing at any minute, disaster may strike.

So, take a trip with Sarah to the Castle of Witchcraft and Wizardry and pay a visit to the ghost's Deathday party in the dungeon, pop into the kitchen for a chat with the sometimes helpful House-Elf; slide down a pipe for a spot of spelunking in the chamber of secrets, try to hide from the cranky caretaker, pick up plenty of coins to buy sweets at the sweet shop, , spend some time in the library learning new spells, and finally, hold on tight as you fly on a broom trying to catch the golden snitch.
