The vampire hunter, Dr. Lifelust, wants to live forever. To do this, he needs vampire blood. To fulfill his goal, he has kidnapped Count Dracula. You, as Drac or Dracana, the son and daughter of Dracula, must fight your way past the not-so-good doctor's minions to rescue your father.
Dracula Twins is a side-scrolling platform game. You must find the key and make you way to the exit of each part of each chapter. Along the way, you will need to kill enemies or avoid perilous dangers like spikes, swinging blades and crushing hammers. To kill an enemy, either press fire to strike them with your whip or press up and fire to shoot a fireball. Be sure to gather the blood rubies you encounter as this is what gives you the power to shoot fireballs. If you stand next to a torch, press fire to strike it with your whip. These will release blood rubies. Make your way to the end and destroy the evil Dr. Lifelust and save your father.
