Nosferatu, a feared vampire; no one has ever seen him and survived to tell. At night, he awakens to suck blood from his poor victims. The evil has to be stopped! A young man rides to the dungeon to kill Nosferatu and rescue his loved one.

Nosferatu is a platform game similar to Prince of Persia in gameplay and presentation. The protagonist travels on platform structures and relies on acrobatics moves to overcome traps. He fights enemies with his bare fists. Like in Prince of Persia, there is a time limit (which can be extended by picking up the hourglass power-up). Other power-ups include colored crystals that heal the protagonist or increase his life energy.
