Your goal is to topple kings.
Castle Quest works like chess. You take turns moving your pieces one at a time.
The player who topples an opposing king wins the round. But being a good chess
player won't be enough to win. With magical attacks and Card Roulette to
contend with, you'll have to be lucky too. In Quest Mode there are 24 kings
to defeat, and the last is that fearsome King of Magic,
Your task: to restore peace to the realm of Jokerina.
Your mission is to topple kings 3

Any action counts as one turn. However, if you attack an enemy and a battle
begins, the turn is not over.
Players take turns moving one character at a time. To move a character,
first place the cursor over the character and then press the "A" button.
The areas within which the character can move will be displayed. A
character cannot be moved into or through a space already occupied by a
friendly character. Moving a character into a space occupied by an enemy
character attacks the enemy. Battle begins.
When enemies try to occupy the same space, the battle screen appears.
Pressing the "A" button stops the Card Roulette. The character with the
cards to trump his opponent's hand causes damage to the enemy. The battle
is over when one of the players runs out of stamina: the surviving player wins.
Note: 1 point is always added to the attacker's cards, so the attacker has

* Running Away
If the battle puts a character in danger and there is an empty space to
the rear into which the character can back up, choosing the "Run" command
will cause the character to retreat. There is no limit to the number of times
a character can run away, but the more it runs away, the easier it gets to
run away. Only a king is allowed to run away to the side as well as the rear.
In battles from which a character cannot run away, one point is subtracted
from the total on its cards.
* Face Cards
If a Joker (J), Queen (Q) or King (K) appears when the Card Roulette stops,
the attack can continue.
A Joker cancels one of the opponents cards. There will be characters who
hold this card and characters who do not. The Joker may or may not have
this effect on a king.
-- page 8 --
* Strengths and Weaknesses
Each character is strong againt some opponents, weak against others. You
should take this into account when deciding where to attack.
When characters are killed they are buried in the graveyards behind their
side's territory. When graves fill the screen from side to side, their side's
territory is reduced. Characters who are left with no space to move in die.
As they die their graves will be added to the screen just like those who
die in battle.
* Summoning the Dead
Pieces felled by magic are placed in coffins where they become the property
of the side that killed them. The dead in the coffins can be summoned by the
side that owns them; but the longer they have been dead, the less likely it is
that they will respond to a summons. If a summons fails, the character in the
coffins will then be buried in graves behind the side that owns them, just as
if they had been killed in battle. Other characters can pass through spaces
occupied by coffins.
-- page 9 --
* Becoming More Powerful
If a character reaches the zone in the enemy territory marked by stars,
its name is chaged and both its magical powers and stamina increase. Any
magical power or stamina points previously lost are completely restored.
Note, however, that for kings and queens points are only restored; there
is no increase.
After 30 turns, night falls. On the following morning magical power and
stamina points used up the previous day are restored for all characters.
The display at the beginning of each turn shows the number of turns
remaining until night falls.
* Treasure Chest
There's no telling what's inside a treasure chest. It doesn't always
increase a character's strength.
-- page 10 --
There are characters who as they move can use magic to attack opponents
or recover their own strength Each time magic is used, one magic point is
lost. Note that there is magic for both attack and recovery. Be careful
how you use it
* Status Display
When it's your turn, you can see a character's status by placing the cursor
over it and pressing button "B". Think carefully about your character's
status before you make a move.
