I beat Dark Castle around 10-11 years old and Beyond Dark Castle a few years later.

I beat Dark Castle and Beyond Dark Castle when I was a teenager. It wasn't easy but definitely not impossible.

I've finished both the first and second Dark Castle games... can even finish the first without losing a single life, and can one credit the second! They're not that hard once you get used to them. I'm yet to play this third game, though.

I don't think anyone has ever "beaten" any Dark Castle game. The controls are simply too unwieldy to properly use and the difficulty level is too high. They've always been a case of "looks good, plays horribly".
