Fast paced, action packed beat 'em up with RPG elements. Use multiple upgradeable weapons, items and magic to defeat vampires, werewolves and legions of the undead!

Arrow keys - Move
ESC - Pause
A - Block
S - Jump/No/Cancel
D - Attack/Yes/Activate/Use magic
F - Charge magic
E - Select item
R - Use selected item
Space - Swap weapons


* The key to defeating some enemies is using combinations of the 3 primary weapons (swap between these with SPACE). Vampires, for example, must be attacked first with the bat or katana until they are weakened, then finished with the stake.
* Hold F to charge magic, wait until you hear a blip and see yellow particles appear. To use level 1 magic, wait until you see the first yellow particles, then press D. For level 2 magic, wait until you see the second yellow particles, etc.
* If you get cornered by an enemy, you can dash while blocking by holding A and double tapping a direction key. This is a good way to get behind an attacking enemy or get out of the way of a group of attacking enemies.
* If you jump and attack in mid-air, you'll do more damage if you hit the enemy.

It has a lot of lagging, especially after the tutorial level. I don't understand why there is a blue werewolf, and as jumbijumbi stated a vampire is not only touching, but throwing crosses at you. But these are only minor contradictions. The big problems would be the fact when you attack, half the time the character stops halfway through, as if she were retarded or having a seizure (or both) thus leaving the opponent unharmed and you open for attack.

Some problems...

Being forced to follow unclear instructions that dont allow skipping what should be trial and error controls, doesnt help. And why is a vampire attacking me with a cross? For those that cant start, try reading ALL the instructions (chances are its the esc button you need).

It's almost impossible to read the in-game text without really looking at each individual letter..
