|This game isn't as hard as I remembered. In each level you have to find 5 of dracula's coffins and open them with a key to fight them. The only other enemies are the constantly spawning bats which you can kill by punching or jumping on them, then these blue blob things which go down in one punch, and then a couple other tougher enemies that take multiple hits.|
There's a few tricks you can use to make it easier.
- jumping under a ceiling lamp will freeze time, making it possible to kill a dracula or another tough enemy without getting hit, but you can only do this 5 times per house, so it's best to use it on the 5 draculas.
- walking past a desk lamp or fireplace is what triggers an arrow to shoot across the screen, and you can dodge it by ducking or jumping on it. if you jump on 16 arrows, the 16th will give you temp invincibility
- when you jump near a set of candles, a knife will shoot across the screen, and if you jump on that, you get a knife weapon which does double damage and lasts for 5 hits.
I actually managed to beat all 5 draculas in the first house and got to the exit, which I don't believe I've ever seen before.. got game over on the 2nd level though.. kept getting cornered by tough enemies...
Watched a youtube playthrough. The 2nd level added mummies, but the 3rd level really doesn't look like it added anything.. and after that, the game just loops back to the 1st level, but now all the enemies are faster. I could definitely at least beat the normal mode if I bothered to try enough times...
This game has one music track that is used for every level.. it's not bad though. Overall this is an okay game. Not bad at all, especially for its time. I'd rather play other stuff though. I'm just gonna drop this even though it's only 3 levels long lol... just have no interest in beating it with savestates or practicing enough to beat the 3 levels legit.
