When it comes to obscurity, it’s not the best computer games that tend to fade away, nor is it the ones that are notoriously bad either. Real obscurity is reserved for those games that were just relatively average when they released. When we stumbled upon this title, our curiosity was piqued by the screenshots on the back of the box, but what we found was a relatively enjoyable but entirely forgettable little romp, one that feels rather rushed and unfinished with no proper story to bind the levels together. Vampire games are supposed to suck, but not like this.

Installation

The game should install on modern PCs without too much trouble. Simply place the disc in your computers optical drive and follow the on-screen prompts. If the games installer doesn’t start automatically, browse to the DVD in Computer/This PC and run the “Setup” or “Setup.exe” program manually.

There are no patches or updates we could find for the game, so once installation is done, you’re ready to play.

Tweaking visual quality

There are a couple of graphical options you can set so the games visuals don’t suck so much (that is the last time I will use that joke in this article, I promise). Start the game and from the main menu, go to “Game Options” and then “Graphics Details”. Set this to “High”. While you’re in this menu, you should change the screen resolution to 1280×1024. This is the highest resolution the game supports, the game also does NOT support widescreen and should run with black borders at the sides of the screen on a widescreen monitor.

Other notes

This ended up being a very short guide, but there’s really very little to explain with this one. The game uses DirectX 9, so it is compatible with modern in-game tools like Shadowplay, Evolve or Steam.

Remember, to kill a baddie you need to drive your stake through their heart. If you leave them incapacitated on the ground they will simply get up again.

The maid had had enough, and decided to negotiate a pay rise.

My, that is a bright pendant you’re wearing.
