“It's heavy on story, atmosphere, and puzzles! Not a standard hidden object or casual adventure game, Dracula: Love Kills builds a bridge between genres and provides a puzzle-centric experience that plays less like a hidden object game and more like a puzzle game with a narrative. A good length from start to finish, plenty of things to unlock/achieve, a story you actually want to take part in, and puzzles built around a hidden object/adventure core, Dracula: Love Kills is an excellent addition to any casual gamer's library.”
4.4 out of 5 – Jayisgames

“There's lots of top-notch hidden object searching, plenty of puzzle solving and finally, for once, a chance to play the bad guy as a really bad guy. That alone is almost worth the price of admission, and Dracula: Love Kills is definitely worth a look.”
4 out of 5 – Gamezebo

“This game proves that a classic tale told with refreshing twists, diverse protagonists who play off each other's discrete personalities, a vast repository of thoughtful challenges, moral dilemmas yielding different outcomes, and impressive art and architecture will produce a winner irrespective of the format. It has both style and substance, and is worth playing at least a couple of times for all fans of vampires and/or casual adventure games.”

I won't lie that this game is a masterpiece, naah. But it is so, so charming - you know with the charm of B movies: naive, cute, full of hilarious dialogs, overdone accents and caricature characters.

The voice acting makes this game unforgetable, it is so ironically bad (I am sorry, actors) that it is almost spectacular. Igor is a star of this game, I bet he will be your favourite character and all his phrases will put a big smile on your face.

The game itself is a point & click adventure with tons of puzzles and mini-games. The puzzle part is interesting and pretty challenging. Some of the puzzles confused me and I was close to rage quit (but I guess it is because I am too impatient).

Art is really pleasant here, locations with hidden objects are drawn beautifully, every detail is carefully designed.

Achievements are fun and interesting to do. Verdict - time well spent!
Dracula: Love Kills is a lovely puzzle game, seasoned with plenty of irony, fake transilvanian accent and one hardcore decision - to bite or not to bite.

Dracula: Love Kills is a fun casual hidden object game. I really enjoyed playing it because it is very user friendly: the game is designed to help you understand what you are supposed to do next, without spoiling the fun or the story.

Apart from the common elements that appear in every hidden object game (hints, difficulty levels, extras) the game offers a tutorial / strategy guide which is very helpful for players that are new to this type of game. The game also shows when a location is complete, thus making the game experience very enjoyable since you don't waste time any more looking for clues in the locations that you've already visited.

Most of the puzzles have a medium difficulty, some are very easy and intuitive, but there are a few brain teasers that will surely challenge your logic and patience.

Don't let the title and the art fool you, this is (shockingly) no shovelware. For fans of Hidden Object Games, this is actually a very competent, polished and enjoyable game of the genre.

Yes, yes, the story is ridiculous and oh wow, that's some pretty horrendous voice acting. Then again I suppose it all ends up being entertainigly bad in B movie way (read: standard HOG fare). However I haven't enjoyed HOG scenes so much in a while. The art of the backdrops is very good, items are well drawn, the compositions are intelligent, and the difficulty was pitch perfect for my personal tastes. The puzzles offer a nice amount of variety, and the occasional bit of novelty. A few of them are based on board games, which was fine by me. And while most puzzles are of medium difficulty, there were a couple that demanded some attention, mostly in a good way. Bonus points for the fact that everything is skippable.

Navigation is easy with the higlighted maps (a really big plus), the music rather forgettable but not bad, and between the extra gameplay and all the puzzles and HOG scenes offered seperately as extras in the end, there's a decent amount of content here for the usual price. It's also technically competent, with all resolutions offered and without any obvious bugs or glitches - and this is unfortunately notable for casual games.

For fans who understand what to expect this is a very easy recommendation.

There are a million seek and find or hidden object games. They're in every store that has computer software. Somewhere in the far reaches of the software isle, all priced at 9.99. Steam has plenty, Big Fish has hundreds. They're everywhere. My wife and I have played a good chunk of them. This one stands out as better then your average.

Note: This review is for those familiar with hidden object games

The puzzles are basically what you'd expect, with a few nice surprises. There are too many tile puzzles in my opinion, but not enough to spoil the process.

Visually stimulating for a hidden object game, with nice backdrops.

The story/voice acting is pretty bad, as you could have guessed anyway.

The objects aren't blurry or difficult to find. Resolution is solid.

While mostly what you'd expect from a more "modern" hidden object, this one is polished. It's not clunky in navigation, the puzzles work great, and its very vivid. There's enough here to say this is one of the most polished I've played in quite some time.

Bottom Line: If you want a crisp hidden object game, mostly containing what you would expect with puzzles/story, but doing it very well, this should fit the bill. You'll enjoy it.

This Point & Click Game is much longer than the other ones I have played. It is very good made and has acceptable voice acting. The Art was absolutly lovely and the puzzles where rather challenging.

This Game comes with some Bonus Content as well which makes it even longer. The Actual Base Game & Story is around 6-10 hours long. Depending on how quick you are with the puzzles and the Bonus Content is around 2-5 hours long. Yet again it depends how quick you are with the puzzles.

There are no Guides for this Game so if you want to get it a perfect one you will have to either way figure it out yourself or google it (same goes to when your stuck).

In my opinion there is hardly any good vampire games out on Steam but this is definitly one of them. It is a must for every HO / Point & Click Games Fan and of course for every Vampire Fan too.

Due to the Fact that this Game is all in all over 15 hours long I can recommend it for its original price but if you decide to get it on sale you will be probably even more happy!

The Only thing which I found a bit sad was that there is no trading cards. Hopefully they will add them in later on at some point.

For Achievement Hunters: If you put alot of effort in it and be patient you might as well get 100% quite easly.

Thank you very much to [ReAp]Mr.Tech for the Gift!

Very fun, you play as Igor, the loyal servant of Count Dracula! Together you travel the world solving puzzles and hidden object games. This game is good for new players or veterans with a difficulty setting, for new players it has a strategy guide which is helpful. This game has alot of locations and helps you know where to go instead of just guessing like other games. Great voice acting with fantastic artwork plus bonus content and extra games makes this game a must have. Even after beating the game the story can go on with more content in the extra games section.

Rating: 10/10 Value: $9.99

For a Hidden Object Game with 2 Runs it was a long one. The graphics are good (not very good), the characters like the 4 girls looks good, the story is fine and brings you about many parts of the world to save the beloved Mina Harker. For a small unknown developer studio its a great HDO, they have not many games released since 2011. For HDO Fans its good, puzzles like normal, you can go 2 ways/ends (kill all girls or kill 0-3 girls). So for people who love the genre i give 92 % other people should look if the screens are fine and people who dont like the genre, buy some other game. Thank you for reading and hopefully enjoy.

Short version: 71%
A repetitive hidden object game with a large number of difficult puzzles, that is just unable to stop. Vampire fans may enjoy it, but casual players and achievement hunters will have their patience tested to or beyond the limits.

Long version:
Dracula: Love Kills is an average hidden object puzzle game with a lot of scavenging: gameplay mostly consists of gathering fragments from maps or hidden object scenes that are assembled into puzzles which are solved to get even more fragments. Repeat until the credits roll– although it often feels as if that moment will never come.

There isn’t even a good story to save it. It’s a sequel to the original novel using the classic movie cast (completed with terrible accents), where Dracula and his reluctant helper, Van Helsing have to travel all over the world to save Mina Harker from the Queen of the Vampires. The plot just repeats itself numerous times and the nonsensical level progression quickly kills the atmosphere.

Frankly, you’ll find a better deal in the developer’s other title they put on Steam: Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles. A superior game in every possible aspect.

An ok story, the puzzles go from simplistic to complicated. I solved a couple of them with 1-2 clicks before I even know what the goal was. Where the game fall short is the achievements, if your first playthrew is not under 5 hours, you have to start a new profile. You have to go threw the game twice at minimum, but most likly 3-4 times if an achievement dose not unlock properly.

If you are looking for 100% achievement games, I would tell you to pass on this one. If you are just looking for a good point & click I do sudgest this game.

This is yet another point and click adventure I played. And as ever, the inner perfectionist got the better of me and demanded of me to achieve all there is to achieve. So there we are.

Aside from a small glitch that I lost one of my achievements just before I would have completed all, thus having to play the entire game plus extra game a third time, it was plenty of fun. The storyline is not too overloaded, but it also is a very clear line. And you even have a moral choice here. It is nothing as deep and imersive as Mass Effect or similar Triple-A titles, but it does get across a point. At least for me.

The graphics, the music and the atmosphere of the game all harmonize perfectly. To me, "Dracula: Love Kills" is one of the most enjoyable point and click adventures with Hidden Object and Puzzle elements out there. And now, after playing it straight for several hours today, I will fall into bed and pass out to have some well-earned sleep.

Dracula: Love Kills is a hidden item and puzzle game. I enjoy these types of games as a welcome break from frenetic action games. This one is particularly good this time of year (I played it 3 weeks before Halloween). The story is fun and the voice acting is cheesy/good. The painted artwork is lovely and the settings add a nice gothic atmosphere. The puzzles range from quite easy to very challenging, but you should never get stuck because there is a hint system available and an option to skip puzzles if needed, thereby eliminating frustrations and letting you move on with the story. The game is a good value for the $10 pricetag. It has a lot of replayability since you'll often want to retry areas to improve your time or chase achievements. If you enjoy hidden item games, I would also suggest the Midnight Mysteries series. Happy Gaming.

Absurd Logic

Posted: August 2
In a nutshell: For a slightly older game, Dracula: Love Kills has aged remarkably well. It even holds up against many recent cookie-cutter HOPAs. The story is nothing special, but the voice acting is silly enough that you probably "von't" care. It carries its weight where it matters, through great art, varied and challenging puzzles, and clever HOGs. Definitely worth a play (or two if you're going for both endings and 100% achievements).

As stereotypically "vampire" as it gets, with a heavy dose of camp. Dracula ironically teams up with Van Helsing to defeat a megalomaniacal vampire queen (who apparently wants to cover the world in some kind of crimson Zerg creep). The bulk of the game is their quest to collect various items to appease a bunch of dead vampire-slayer knights in order to gain access to a super-mega-ultra-magic-vampire-slayer dagger, because it's the only thing that can kill the queen (no spoilers, you learn all that within the first few minutes of the game). Dracula obtains a few vampy powers along the way (telekinesis, bat form, etc.), and amusingly ends up acting like a frustrated dad when Van Helsing and Igor keep exchanging schoolyard-worthy barbs.

Depending on how you deal with all of the queen's lady minions (kill or spare) during the main game, you'll get one of two endings to the epilogue/bonus chapter. The 'choice matters' thing is a nice touch, because it actually makes a difference. Not a huge one, but you'll get some alternate dialogue between the good and evil paths, and a totally different companion in the epilogue.

The writing is standard fare, with visual novel style click-to-advance dialogue. It's not perfect, and suffers from more than a few errors in grammar, but the slip-ups sort of dissolve under the characters' ridiculously put-on accents. I didn't find the silliness of the characters or accents annoying though. It's more like the over-the-top acting you'd see in a Mel Brooks film. "Young Frankenstein" was very likely an inspiration for Igor, for example. It really helps that the accents, while hammed up and stereotyped, are stereotyped well (which is a weird thought, I know). I would go so far as to say that the voice acting itself is a big part of what makes this game enjoyable. It's self aware, like a decent B-movie that doesn't take itself too seriously, yet has a good production value nonetheless.

The hidden object scenes are very well-constructed in this game. All of them. Even in the epilogue. There aren't any two-step items, animated bits, or other bells and whistles you find in more recent HOGs - just a static list and a cluttered scene. But they're GOOD scenes. If you've played a crap-ton of these things, you know that many HOGs fall short because of bad scale, placement, art, missing object bugs, or things hidden too well (in a bad way). In contrast, here the scenes are nicely composed and feel totally organic. The artist(s) did a great job of making everything seem like "normal" clutter, so it really is a genuine challenge to find things. There are a couple of mild mistranslations, like referring to pliers or tweezers as "pincers", "shovel" referring to a trowel, or a vase being called a jar. But considering that the incorrect words are all objects/tools with the same basic function as the intended words, it's not really bothersome.

Regular gameplay scenes feature an extra quasi-hidden object hunt in the form of vials of blood that help fill your "power meter". There's an achievement for finding all of them.

There's a large variety of puzzles with an overall average to above-average difficulty. There are a few really simple no-brainers, a handful of classic board games like Go or Connect-4, a fair amount of the typical stuff that shows up in nearly every HOPA in existence, and several that were surprisingly challenging in a "this is frustrating but I understand the logic enough not to ragequit" sort of way. There were a handful that I got impatient with and had to look up, the biggest offenders being the stone tile rooster, "capture the snake", and one where you push small tiles around to match a given configuration (mainly because of the tile placement rules). But I'm not really complaining, because I love it when a game like this really makes me think.

Puzzles just start with no info/rules pop-up. There's a "?" button that gives you basic instructions, but a bunch of them don't explain the objective very well. I found the in-game strategy guide ("SG" in the lower left) more descriptive in those cases.

Nicely rendered. No awkward 3D, just hand-drawn art. The cutscenes are a bit iffy because of a needlessly shaky "camera", but in general the static visual novel style character cutouts work well for the title.

I already mentioned how the over-the-top accents add a lot to the game, but the music and SFX are pretty good too. Maybe it's just me, but I like it when developers take the time to make sure little things like button rollovers or item pickups sound satisfying. You hear them so much over the course of the game, so it's important that they aren't grating.

Main Gripe: Being Timed
You have all the time in the world for the actual HOGs and puzzles, but your overall time playing the game is actively tracked. You can see your time from both the main menu and the "Honors" tab of your book in game. The timer stops when you exit to the main menu, as opposed to Steam's timer, which continues to run while at the main menu. This is crucial, because if you're going for the "Watch Warden" achievement, you need to complete the main game in under 5 hours (according to the game's timer, so exit to the menu for potty breaks) during your FIRST playthrough on a profile. It's a bit of a dumb idea, because rushing through a first playthrough is the opposite of what most people do, and what sucks is that if you miss it and go over 5 hours, you need to start an entirely new profile and replay to try again. What I did was quickly move through the dialogue ("next", not "skip") without paying too much attention to it. I finished with no HOG or puzzle skips in under 3.5 hours, so there's wiggle room for reading everything if you're also fast with the minigames. But I figured I'd just read stuff the second time around on Hard mode.

Dracula: Love Kills is worthy of a spot on your "Play Next" list. It has the satisfying combination of good length and presentation, well-constructed HOGs, and nice puzzle variety/difficulty. The tongue-in-cheek (but well-done) goofy accents may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you go in expecting a bit of ham to go with your cheese, you're gonna have a good time.

Aww yiss. What a quality game. I'm generally a fan of HOGs and played this somewhere between average to bad games and this game was such a breath of fresh air in the sense of quality.

This game is apparently a sequel to 'Dracula Origins' published by the same company, but I've not played that game (yet). I still had no trouble following the story; Dracula is woken up by his servant and together with him and Van Helsing they set on a quest to find Mina; the love of Dracula's life who had been kidnapped by the Queen of Vampires.

As you progress in the game you unlock new vampire powers to use in your quest.

The game has many positives; superb voice acting from all characters, a lot of humour in the dialogues, high quality in the looks of both scenes and characters, and the sweet words of 'Location complete' when you have completed a location (duh). The game also shows on the map where there are things to be done, even in the hardest of modes. The different locations across the world are also pretyt interesting and well done.

The game also has at least two possible endings, depending on your choices throughout the game. These choices also comes into the viewpoint of the bonus chapter.

I left the game on a lot while afk, so my game time means nothing; but I was actually surprised to see I got the achievement for finishing within 5 hours.
All puzzles can be skipped or hinted through, but then will not get you the achievement. You cna however spam hint as much as you like outside of the HO scenes.

Negative for the game is probably that the HO scenes can get easy as you, if you click slow enough on hard mode or spamclick on easy, can pretty much click on every item and eventually get the scene complete without looking at the items you need. The scenes are usually so cluttered though, that it's not that easy this way. All scenes are played at least twice, so you get familiar with them.
Another negative, though small, is how easily Van Helsing and Dracula teams up after just been mortal enemies.
The game also pauses on alt+tab, so you may not ditch out of the cutscenes or dialogues that way (there is an achievement for not skipping any of that). It is useful for the 'finish in 5 hours' achievement though.

Small note; the game Dracula's Legacy, another HOG, has nothing to do with this game and is from another company completely. I did have a sad :(
