Description

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark is an adventure game. The game uses a first-person perspective in which the hero wanders around solving puzzles, and combating with undead creatures that have overrun Elvira’s Castle.

This game features dozens of different death sequences. If the cook in the kitchen kills you, for example, you can see your head floating in her cauldron. The game also has a real-time combat system. You have to time your attacks and blocks in order to defeat the enemy.
