The Dracula adventure series continues with the mysterious re-appearance of a painting.
Get ready for a surprise reveal: Dracula is super-duper hard to kill. Even when the Lord of the Vampires is put out of commission (permanently or temporarily, depending on the mythology), his influence sticks around like a dark cloud. Ships suddenly seem to sail themselves, wolves start hanging around town, and bats seem to think they have the run of daylight hours. Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android revolves around one such mysterious Vlad-related phenomenon.
Dracula 4: Shadow of the Dragon is an upcoming adventure game from Microids and Anuman. It’s the latest installment of the well-loved Dracula series, which should make adventure fans beam. This time, the story follows the exploits of an art restorer named Ellen Cross. When Ellen gets a call regarding the sudden appearance of a rare masterpiece in Budapest, Hungary, she’s surprised to say the least—especially since that particular painting was supposed to have sunk along with the cargo ship that was carrying the painting along with others.
You have to help Ellen get to the bottom of the mystery. You may wind up tangling with vampires sooner than later, so pack your garlic and your holy water. Like its predecessors, Dracula 4: Shadow of the Dragon mixes point-and-click exploration with a lot of moving and travelling. You can get a good look around each environment you explore, which adds depth to the investigation. The story is told through cut scenes and a cast of voice actors.
Dracula 4: Shadow of the Dragon should please adventure fans who are hungry like the wolf for more games. Look for it this summer.
