Castle of the Winds is a computer role-playing game with a traditional fantasy theme developed by SaadaSoft and published by Epic MegaGames for Windows 3 in 1993. The game uses a traditional dungeon-crawler style, but utilizes the drag-and-drop icon interface of Windows.

When my parents visited someone's house with me in tow, I remember seeing this game being played by their son. Although I recognized immediately that the game was hugely media challenged (the SNES had already been out for years), I was still intrigued by the simple interface. Years later, I remember seeing icons from the game in a free icon collection, and, later still in the mid-2000s, I remembered the game and found a shareware copy online. I only played a little bit and died early in the game, so I didn't put much effort into it. When I began working on reviews for this Web site, I decided to give the game another try and played it with more earnest.

The game has been released as freeware. I have not beaten it.
