Dracula : The Path of the Dragon feels more like an interactive storybook than a game, although there are elements of mystery to the game. You begin as a priest en route to Transylvania looking for a mysterious woman.
The graphics and animation are excellent and the atmosphere of the app is quite Gothic. All interactions with other characters are done from the priest’s perspective in order to achieve the fiction that you are this priest character.
You walk around the village by tapping little arrows that lead in different directions. When you have to interact with a person or object, there is a button to press. I kept walking around hoping to be attacked by a Vampire, but it didn’t happen.
The game is fairly confusing and you have to listen carefully to the spoken dialogue, otherwise you miss important bits. It’s a good app for Gothic mystery lovers. And hey, it’s tough to argue with the price.
Of course, when something is free, it costs in other ways. In this case, you have to buy Parts 2, 3 and beyond if you want to continue the story. Part 1 gives you a nice taste of it, though.
Overall, I would still give this a pass due to the strange complexity of it. The graphics and animations are still very good. That could be enough for some.
Would I Buy Again:Possibly.
Who Is It For:Gothic mystery lovers.
What I Like:Good graphics and animation.
What I Don't Like:Tough to learn.
Final Statement:Dracula himself would have second thoughts about sucking this one.
