Drascula is a relatively short but enjoyable graphic adventure drawn in the wonderfully "old school"  2D cartoon style. I believe the game was originally written in Spanish but the English version I played suffered sadly from the poorest translation & voice acting I have ever come across in an adventure game. (even making Ark of Time look slick in comparison!) .  If you can ignore the vocals (or simply enjoy them whilst you squirm)  the game can be quite fun.

 

The following walkthrough may not be the shortest path to complete the game - it just represents the sequence I happened to complete it in.

 

Bar          -              Talk to barman (all options)

                -              Go upstairs  & see you new girlfriend, BJ, siezed by Drascula

                -              Return to bar & talk to Pianist (he mentions having earplugs to withstand the                                     monotonous music he is paid to play every day)

                                Talk to barman , & drunkard (he mentions that Von Braun was the only one ever                              to have entered Drasculas castle & come out alive - he says that he lives in a cottage                    out of town)

 

BJ'sRoom              Go back upstairs to BJ's room & open trunk to find BJS HANDBAG

                -              Open Handbag & find $1000 NOTE and COINS

 

Side Room            Enter sideroom to right of Bar & insert coin into cigarette machine (but nothing                                 falls out)

                -              Push cigarette machine & get PACKET OF CIGARETTES

 

Behind Tavern     Walk outside to town square & go to rear of Bar

                -              Look in bin & find PACK OF TISSUES

                                Walk past sweet shop to outskirts of village

 

Cottage                  Try to open door & Von Braun pretends not to be in

                -              Talk to locked door & eventually Von Braun lets you in when you suggest trying to                        defeat Drascula together

                -              Drascula bets you cannot pass his test to see if you are worthy of the task.

                -              You take the test & fail (unable to withstand the noise) & Von Braun takes any                                 money / coins you still have befiore throwing you out.

                -              Return to cottage to find Von Braun asleep.

                -              Get BOOK from shelf by Von Braun & notice it has the music for Sleeping Beauty

Cemetary               Examine railings & notice one is loose - get it - it is a PIKE

                -              Examine plant growing by Mausoleum - it is "fernan"

                -              Use sickle to cut plant & get FERNAN LEAVES

 

Cottage  -              Return to cottage & talk to Von Braun about vampire hunting - he says you need to                         use the light from a crucifix to kill a vampire but that you will need a "brew" to                                       protect you from the vampires hypnotic stare

                -              Ask about the "brew" - he says it is made fro a mixture of Garlic, bubblegum, wasx,                           nicotine & fernan  leave all rolled into a reefer with cigarette / tissue paper  - he                              mentions that he has garlic, but you will need to find the other ingredients.

 

Church   -              Go to the back of the church (ie behind the railings not in front) & break the furthest                        window with the pike

                                (Igor & Drascula then leave you to die as the match is about to start)

                -              "Use" your hands on the pendulum to cut your shackles & free yourself

                -              Push torch to right of door to open it & walk left into BJ's bedroom above the Bar

 

BJ's Room             BJ is chained to the bed & says Igor & Drascula are downstairs wating the match.

                                (at this point the phone rings - it's Von Braun who says he forgot to mention that                             the reefer may not be effective if used with alcohol) 

                                 (( No I didn't understand the logic here either))
