Bram Stoker's Dracula
Publisher: Sony Imagesoft
In the black of night he stalks his unwitting victims with the passion of
a prince and the grace of a wild animal. Able to assume the guise of
everything from a shadow on the wall to a jagged-tooth wolf beast, he
feeds on the living sinking his pearly fangs into the fair throats for a
drink of their life-giving serum. For he is the Prince of Darkness - Count
Dracula - and he's cast his hypnotic spell on your lovely mistress, Mina
Murray. Now you, Jonathan Harker, must drive a stake through the heart
of this vampire and save the fair Mina from eternal life as a vampire.

description of what you'll face in each level.
1) The Journey to Castle Dracula - Dusk
*You begin your quest inside an old rat-infested village inn. Watch out
for wild dogs, bug-eyed bats, hungry rats, and club-happy henchmen.
2) The Journey to Castle Dracula - Night
*On the way to Castle Dracula you'll have to make you way through mossy
fields and jagged rock formations while fending off bats, spear
wielding-henchmen, and protruding skewers. And watch out for the Blue
Dracula and his mighty whip.
3) Harkers Escape from the Castle - Dusk
*You've made it to Dracula's library. Beware! Among the volumes of the
Prince's favorite literature lurk more rats, bats, tarantulas and spindly
4) Harkers Escape from the Castle - Night
*Down in the cavernous vaults of Castle Dracula lurk venomous tarantulas,
hordes of rats, hidden passageways, hovering walkways, protruding
spears... and Dracula's fire-breathing dragon.
5) Harker's Escape from the Castle - Night
*Get past Dracula's blushing brides and you're home free.
6) The Journey to Civilization - Dusk
*Venture into Dracula's barn and lasso some pretty lurid livestock including
phantom horses, Molotov Cocktail-hurling henchmen, and of course, more rats.
7) The Journey to Civilization - Night
*You've made it! Now cross the moat and get ready for a petrified forest filled
with rabid wolves, giant tarantulas, and sword-fighting skeletons ready to
dice you up.
8) The Journey to Civilization - Night
*Welcome to the convent. Hope you're not afraid of heights - the only way
out of this lofty mess is to scale the walls and lay to rest stiletto-swinging
9) The Journey to Civilization - Night
*Welcome to the land of the unliving and the young Prince Dracula. With
secret passageways, high-voltage fireflies, ghastly zombies and a tarantula
nest crawling with hairy arachnids... this forest is anything but enchanting!
10) Hillingham Estate - Dusk
*This place needs an exorcism! Make it past the wild dogs, life-sucking bats,
floating tables, and dematerialize a ghostly army of blade-carrying apparitions.
11) Hillingham Estate - Night
*Nothing like an ancient cemetery to lift your spirits. Beware of Lucy while
you make your way through haunting oak trees and come face to face with
neck-biting bats, wicked ravens, scruffy henchmen, and snarling wolves.
12) Hillingham Estate - Night
*Down in the Hillingham cellar it's cold and foggy - the perfect climate for
a carnivorous colony of the unliving, and Dracula in his wolf form.
13) The Trail to Carfax Abbey - Dusk
*Neat looking place, but you wouldn't want to live here. Unless you don't mind
rooming with a lively set of floating furniture and a schizo band of pipe-clutching
14) The Trail to Carfax Abbey - Night
*Make it past the chain gang of blade-wielding women and hatchet men, break
through vanishing pillars, catch a floating platform across the fiery pit, dodge
flame balls... and Dracula is yours. But first defeat that giant guy in the
15) The Trail to Carfax Abbey - Night
Only one more to go...after this! Gather your wits and prepare to go toe-to-talon
and duel it out in the ruins of Carfax Abbey with Dracula in his bat form.
16) Transylvania: Castle Dracula - Dusk
*At last - the main event. Welcome to the inner sanctum of Castle Dracula.
There's only one way out... and that's up. Use floating blocks to ride past nasty
gargoyles then keep your balance and elude laser-spitting granite skulls, giant
bats, and the red armor-clad Dracula.
