Description

Bram Stoker's Dracula is based on the 1992 film of the same name. The player controls a young lawyer named Jonathan Harker, who must free himself from Dracula's capture, follow him to London, and end his reign of terror.

Unlike the several side-scrolling adaptions of the movie for console systems, this one is a first-person action game. Each level follows the same basic formula: Harker has to explore maze-like dungeons like a cemetery and shut off all coffins with holy water, followed by a boss fight against Dracula. Those coffins also serve as unlimited monster generators as long as they are active. Obviously those monsters are not on friendly terms with Harker and so he has to get rid of them by using his gun or knife. Additional bullets and health supplies are spread out over the levels ready to be picked up.

To reach all coffins and holy water flasks, Harker also has to solve basic puzzles which boil down to finding keys and using levers. Movement is not fluent but tile-based; similar to most first-person role-playing games of the time.
