One of the earlier Spanish commercial adventure games, and one of my favourites

The Good
It isn't a technological wonder, but what the heck, it's just an old adventure game dating from 1996. The sprites are ok, the backgrounds too. The cartoony feel is always present on the game (but don't get fooled by that, the humour in this game is quite adult oriented) and some of the puzzles are real great, like one in special i liked a lot from the castle. The music included is digital and taken from the audio tracks of the game cd. The Spanish release also included voice acting (maybe the English one had it too), which wasn't great but just ok.

The Bad
Well, it was a bit short and when you reach the end you don't want the game to end, a pity it never had a sequel...

The Bottom Line
If you wanna have a good time at the old puzzle solving style you will enjoy playing Drascula, maybe it's a bit hard to find nowadays, but if you find a copy, dont think twice and get it!
