There isn't a whole lot more that can be said about this game that hasn't already been said. It's bad. Not even fun bad, just plain old regular BAD. But let's go over it, shall we?

First, the graphics. Everyone knows this. Take one look at the screenshots, it's not too difficult to tell how utterly atrocious they are. The game's description on Steam says that the game has an old-school look to it, (or something like that, I can't be bothered to look up the exact quote) but old-school doesn't even begin to describe it. Castlevania is old-school. Zelda 64 is old-school. Doom is old-school. This game's graphics, on the other hand, just look like they were ♥♥♥♥ out by the leftovers from Morrowind, which in my admitedly unpopular opinion, has not aged well at all.

Second, let's talk about the controls. You can't keybind anything. You can make some adjustments to mouse sensitivity, and invert the mouse's Y axis, but that's it. Don't like the layout? Well, ♥♥♥♥ you. Your character's movement, too, is just weird in general. Movement is very sluggish. Everything seems a bit zoomed in, but if you zoom out, it still just feels nauseating. Combat, if you've got the patience to even get to it (I'll get back to that), is painfully bare. There's no strategy involved whatsoever. Hit your enemy, pull back, then go back in for another hit. Rinse and repeat.

Third, let's talk about the story. What's the story? A bunch of monsters and/or people in scary get-up have been ravaging the land, and got into the castle. They killed all the guards, and took all the money, taxes (yes, taxes), and swords. Also, they took this guy's sister, and you better save her, because you're in love with her. The only image we see of said woman is awkwardly animated, with flailing arms and a grand total of one facial expression. Now normally I wouldn't complain too much about the damsel in distress trope, overused though it may be, but the way this game goes about it is just stupid, to the point where I had to stop after the cutscene to finish laughing. Basic isn't even the word, bad is closer to what I'm looking for.

Okay, now here's the big one. How would you expect a fantasy hack and slash video game to open? A tutorial level? Sure. What's in the tutorial level? A few low-level baddies for you to kill, with a few different weapons to try out? Nah, that'd just be asinine. Instead, let's have the tutorial level be a stupidly complex find the key quest, in an overly large castle? Yup, that sounds good to me. Yeah, no litterally, the FIRST instructions you are given in the game are to find a bunch of keys so you can get a sword. But it's not like you just find one key and get your reward. A key opens a door, which opens a chest, which gives you some unnecessary item, which lets you get another key, which THEN lets you get the sword. And all of it is separated between different rooms in this quite large castle.


All this makes the game seem REALLY bad. It is. But the worst thing about this game, I repeat, the WORST thing about this game is nothing I have mentioned thus far. What ♥♥♥♥ed me off most about this game is that Barnabas Collins didn't even get a single appearance. Or Quentin, or Angelique. 0/10 Worst Game Ever.


No, but really, what's with the title, guys? It's not some super obscure thing, Dark Shadows was pretty dang popular back in its day. And okay, even if you didn't know about the show, how could you completely avoid the recent shipwreck of a remake Tim Burton ♥♥♥♥ out a couple years ago? That's a lawsuit waiting to happen there.

I absolutely do NOT recommend this game. Though the graphics are old school, this was and is no problem to me. But the game is NOT responsive or very slow in response to controls, if there are any. I can hardly find any key to manipulate anything and the F1 and F2 keys are absolutely not helping much.
What is even more, the entire game lacks ANY pleasure a gamer needs of this kind of game: almost NO loot, disappointing endings in which you suddenly get killed by an invisible enemy and an impossible quest at start: find a sword and some keys. After 1 hour of gameplay, I have been killed 5 times and only found 1 key, unable to defend myself and with a feeling of... disappointment.
PLEASE TAKE THIS GAME OFF YOUR LIST.
It isn't even worth giving it for free..........

The worst game ever made. It should be against the law to charge money for something like this. The engine is so old it feels like you are running around in a 3D version of a 9yr olds microsoft paint picture. They must have spent more time finding the perfect position to take screenshot that look good than actually working on the game itself. The screenshots look good at first but once you start playing it feels like you are playing a sega genesis game.

Im one of those people who can look at a terrible game and find the good in it. But this game just defies all laws of mental perception physic dynamic regulation.. If you play this game you will never be the same again.

I actually gave this game a chance. A real chance. You start off and it says "I need a key and a weapon" so for literally a half hour i ran around this level looking for this key that ended up just unlocking this door that led to a torch. Than he says "I need oil for this torch" and i looked for soo long around the entire map and i ended up seeing this 25ft tall wooden hutch. And at the top i saw what looked like a bottle of wine (oil) and i was like.. wtf there is no crates or anything to jump up there. Turns out you have to just run straight forward at the wooden flat wall of the hutch and your character just magically slides right up the face of the hutch. okay..

The rest of the game is just a linear path of multiple enemies and when you fight them your character just clips right inside their body. So the entire fight is just you inside some orc's body clicking for 1 minute and a half until he dies. There is no way you can tell if you sword thrusts are making contact with the enemy so you just have to do around 100-150 clicks until he dies. There is no strategy, no blocking, no shielding, just standing in front of eachother just hitting eachother with swords. There is no physically possible way to kill an enemy without losing 70% of your health because you can not dodge or defend. This makes progression impossible because the game just places another enemy every 10ft of the linear path.

I quit when i came across a rock that says "you can not go this way you have to hammer it down" so i press forward and i just run right through it.

There is no common sense in this game either. They will just make a door locked and you have to find a key which is just 15ft behind a bunch of bushes in some dirt that is LITERALLY impossible to see. You just have to spend a ton of time moving around each pixel of the entire map until the game says "you found a key". And even if you do see a key or something on a table, you have to move back and fourth over it for a good 45 seconds before the game actually picks it up for you.

If you can play this game for one hour you have super human abilities.

Can't find the key? not a problem just run forward through the door. Yes.

This game should be free on a flash player games website. I paid mere pennies for this game in a bundle of 6 other games and i still feel ripped off.

Delete this game off the planet somebody before somebody gets hurt

I went into this with very low expectations. I honestly wasn't expecting much, but here goes.

This is the WORST video game I've ever played.

THE WORST.

Now, why am I complaining so much? Let me start with the technical issues. 1. I was greeted with a resolution setting that only goes up to 1680 x 1050. Not even 1080. That ♥♥♥♥ed me off. 2. The graphics. This looks like Half-Life 1, and for a game that is awfully new, it should looks somewhat okay, but it doesn't. This game tries to shove in your face that it has bloom and SSAO in it, but seriously, even with them, the game still looks like ♥♥♥♥. 3. Voice Acting. Dreadful. 4. Highest mouse sensitivity is still really slow for a person like me who likes to have a high mouse sensitivity.

Alright, the story. Nothing special. And by that I mean pretty much non-existent. You and a bunch of "teammates" go to the castle, after it has been attacked. Turns out the girl of your dreams has been taken. Now you have to get her back. And there you go. I'm not gonna complain about the small amount of story I've been given, because honestly, I just want to try the hack and slash.

The first level. Why they made it so complicated did not make any sense to me. The first level started off with a mother♥♥♥♥ing keyhunt. It made no sense. It confused the living hell out of me. I needed to use a walkthrough, on the FIRST LEVEL. That's just awful. The area was big and the objects were all over the place. The controls were poor and didn't really help this game out at the slightest. Everything about this game just screamed wrong. For everyone asking about the keyhunt, imagine trying to find keys that do not even show up. That's right, you can't actually see them. Not to mention, you need a torch to even find one of them, which is just silly, because if there's a key there, then I wouldn't need a torch to actually see the key. It's a pointless quest to go find keys to open chests with other keys. But have I mentioned the fact that you literally have to walk on the walls to get an item you need? Yes, you do. You walk on the walls. YES. You literally jump on a small side railing on the wall, basically hovering to the side of it when you walk on it. I'm sorry, but I would never be able to figure that out because in a video game, I've never had to do that to actually get something. I just found that bizarre.

Then the main section of the game. The fighting. Oh my.
OH MY. OHH.
You get three attacks. All of which are ♥♥♥♥ and don't feel natural. Combat was godawful. All you do is stab the enemy, move back, then just keep doing that until it's dead. That's it. That's the game. Oh my god. The attacks are all mapped to mouse buttons, including the middle mouse. I went immediately to change it, but WAIT, you can't change the controls. But for some reason, they have options for Bloom and SSAO instead of options for controls. Come on. Congratulations, you have shader effects. Yay.

This is the worst. Day One, Walking Dead Survival Instinct, and Postal 3, are all better than this. I didn't want to say this, but I had to. I'm here for you so you can save money. I would not wish this on my worst enemies. My point has been made. Nothing in this game works properly. Everything is bad.

0/10. This is a technical nightmare. Even if this game looks fun to you (which it really shouldn't), remember that it is 10 bucks, and you can do so much more with the ten bucks. I'm genuinely upset that I spent nine dollars on this.
