Radical Castle is a point-and-click adventure game released for Macintosh in 1986 and distributed as shareware.

Players assume the role of the 'Squire', who after mistaking the princess for a serving wench, is given a choice by the King between death and a quest to recover an oracle stolen by a wizard. At one point of the game an area identical to the opening screen of Enchanted Scepters is shown; if the player chooses to go in the direction one would go in Enchanted Scepters a prompt is given encouraging the player to purchase Enchanted Scepters from Silicon Beach Software.

At the height of its popularity the game made the top 100 downloads on GEnie.[2] It can be played on a modern computer using Mini vMac. Macscene.net featured it as their "Retro game of the week" in August 2010. The review praised the games visuals, sound effects and storyline.[3]
