Description official descriptions

In Transylvania we rescued Princess Sabrina, and met Crown Prince Erik. They return upon news of the King John the Good’s death, and learn the crown has vanished. The Vampire Lord Drakul tries to uncover its secrets to become King, and threatens its land.

As their guide, they accompany you on their journey to reclaim the crown an amulet of immense power and rid the land of the Vampire. Certain tasks require their unique abilities, Princess Sabrina understands magic and Crown Prince Erik can use items that rightfully belongs to the heir of the throne, among other roles.

Some places seem familiar, and others are new. Recognizable ancient tree stump and the new mysterious Wizard’s castle to underground caverns.

Encounter unusual characters and creatures that roam these parts - a friendly Griffin or the wicked Witch to curious Trolls, who like shiny objects. Whenever the Sage appears speak to him, and listen to his words of wisdom. Travelers are advised to know how to answer their riddles.

Trivia

Graphics

The game starts out as interactive fiction with graphics; to turn off the graphics, hit ENTER on a blank line. (On a true 4.77MHz/CGA machine, the speed of the switch from graphics to text mode is instantaneous.)

Also, Transylvania II is one of the few PC titles that supports 16 colors exclusively in PCjr computers.
