Not the usual bloodsuckers #2 LOL
Like Vampireville, I've played this game several times last year. Once again, my favorites - humor, characters who move and speak. Scenes, HOs and puzzles are great from what I can actually remember. Would I play it again? Definately!

Humorous Scattered Object Game
It is a very simple game where you have to find mostly the same type of objects in a scene to get to an new dialogue or scene. It is not your typical "rescue your girlfriend from the fiendish vampire" story - but a rather silly take on the current sad state of the vampire genre.
I thought the references and hidden complaints were quite intelligent - but if you are not a genre buff or share the same kind of weird humour you might just find this game and story incredibly silly and dumb.
The characters you encounter are a combination of walking stereotypes - so beware if you don't like that sort of humour.
The worst mistake you can make when buying this game is to expect something scary or sinister: After all this games features a vampiric version of the teletubbies which is something some might find very terrifiying.
I really had fun playing this game, despite its short comings and the ending (during the credits) was incredibly funny and rewarding for all the tedious searching for objects.

Ah well...the credits were entertaining
This is not "scary" in any sense of the word and I don't believe it was meant to be.
This would fall under the catagory of RPG/HOG lite. Extremely lite.
Loaded and ran fine for me with no problems.
Option of both challenge and basic mode. I played challenge level with no sparkles but there are sparkles/clues in the basic level.
3rd person perspective.
Very linear. Point A to point B in a given area depending on the task.
Mini games, while playing into the story line, are simple.
Didn't pay any attention to the music so it must be unobtrusive.
Graphics are clear for the most part.
There is a small amount of interaction as you move some things to find others and select people to talk to.
Most objects to find are multiple identical items.
No penalty for clicking.
If you click on a location, i.e. a door, the character auto goes there.
Story line is suppose to be humorous. To some it may be.
Very short game. For me, 1.5 hours and that was not rushing or skipping.
Hmm..well I bought it thinking the humor was interesting in the demo portion.
It never improved. Cute concept that never really fleshed out. And the over all game was extremly easy.
End result for me was boredom. Although I did get a smile at the action during the closing credits.
This would be a great game for someone who was just discovering this genre or was on the young side.
Probably on the whole wished I'd saved the credit.

Not for everybody's taste...
but I quite like it. I played nearly to the end of the 60 minute demo and thought I leave a few minutes outstanding as flag that I might it.
The game is a bit surreal, somewhat in the range of Green Moon and there were moments when I had to laugh. E.g. when John as the main character describes the crime scene from which his girlfriend was kidnapped and said with the mos serious of faces: "Bats droppings were found" :-). The music, which is not intrusive, adds to the surreal feeling of the game and I really think that this one is a little gem.
So if you like Green Moon give this one a go.

Terrible Story line and easy game play.
This game is just terrible. The developers had all the right ideas but it just came together wrong. To many things going on?? The beginning doesn't match the ending. The HO games were easy and the graphics were tacky. I appreciate that there is an ending because most games skimp on this attribute.

fun in its simplicity
game was fun and some things were well written
my kids enjoyed the story and giggled during the end credits.
some things were in plain site while others were well hidden.
bought it in a triple game pack so it is not really worth buying unless other games come with it.
the characters were interesting and the tasks were point blank and easy to figure out.
All in all a fun family game for younger generations.

This is largely a HOG. Graphics and storyline are cheesy.

Must every game have an occult undertone?
I beta tested this game, and as I played it, I remember thinking, 'Oh great, another occult game.' Hey, game developers? Not all of us are into ghosts, demons, and vampires. Some of us think they are icky.
The mechanics are standard HOG with adventure aspects. Nothing really stood out, other than the icky storyline.
This could have been a good game if not for the poor choice of storyline. I do not recommend it.

Click click click click....
This game is ridiculous! Just a bunch of random clicking on totally irrelevant objects in hopes that you might actually click on something that helps you before the hint button recharges! (even more so than most other hidden object games!) There is NO rhyme or reason to any of the actual game play. As I said...just click click click and hope for the best! Absolutely terrible game.
