Dracula is a top-down action game in which the player as Count Dracula is tasked with uniting vampires across eleven countries against Great Inquisitor Torquemada.[1] Players navigate a series of maze-like levels and using bats to defeat enemies, whilst solving a number of rudimentary puzzles such as moving crates or flipping door switches. Dracula features several mechanics specific to vampire mythology, including a health system that requires the player to suck blood from human enemies, and draining health when the player is exposed to sunlight.[2]


Dracula received mixed to negative reviews. Game Boy Extreme dismissed the game as "nothing special", with "no character progression (and) no plot".[3]
