A pretty average HO game, with very easy hidden object scenes. Still a little fun to be had.

Are you really expecting a lot out of this game? I mean, you must be, because you're reading reviews of it before you buy it for your collection, or looking for a cheap gift to show someone how much you really care. Not much apparently.

So if you want a review that tells you what this game is about, this isn't it. This is the story of a psychopath who sees vampires and Threatens a mortician with a loaded gun, starts a forest fire, and other carnage with a car, a cannon, silver arrows, and wooden stakes. Where you will find things in illogical places such as a treasure chest inside a beehive, and a doorknob inside a vampire's head.

Pros:
+ It's a functional game, yippee!
+ 2-3 hours depending on how fast you pick up on the game
+ Rendered cutscenes that are unintentionally hilarious
+ Voice over dialogue and subtitles
+ I Spy minigame
+ Everything else I didn't mention that is unintentionally hilarious

Cons:
- Typical of the point & Click adventure genre, some of the logic is obtuse or nonexistant
- There's a key or a missing piece of everything you'll encounter

Final verdict: Fire sale!
7/10 - I feel like being generous with the score because the game is functional, for the most part everything looks/sounds pretty good, and any shortcomings in the game are endearing rather than annoying.

For a point and click game, do yourself a favor and get something a bit more exciting. The story was barley there, the voice acting was super stiff. And In all honesty the way the main character winds up using some of the items at times can be extremely frustrating.

Like other Jetdogs games, the hidden object scenes are more interesting than most with lots of multi-part items that require minor puzzle solving. But also like other Jetdogs games, the "adventure-lite" scenes connecting them are a nightmarish slog of unintuitive nonsense and throwing away useful tools.

"I need something to pull these nails."

How about the crowbar you threw away 3 screens ago? YOU LITERALLY USED IT TO PULL NAILS.

"I can't reach that."

YOU REACHED THINGS WITH A BOAT HOOK LITERALLY ON THE PREVIOUS SCREEN. GO BACK AND GET THE BOAT HOOK.

If there were more hidden object scenes and less of everything else, this'd be a pretty great game. As is, take a pass.

I really liked this game, the art is really nice and the soundtrack was fun . If played in english just skip over the old mayor ghost or turn the sound down for a min, his voice is full on cheese:D

I really like point&click games but this game was disapointing. Although graphic is reallly good (in the beggining I thought that the going car was filmed), this game is suitable for those who have not played point&click games before but for those who have it's a waste of time. The puzzes are too simple, almost all the time you know what to do next or what object you need, and even on advanced mode there are almost unlimited amount of hints. It took me only 3,4 hours to finish it. I do not recomend this game.

For the price, even full price, the game is well worth it. Game takes about 2-3 hours.

Graphically, its pretty good. The animations in the cut scenes were very well done, especially for a hidden object game. Voice acting wasnt the best but it wasnt terrible. Loved the game music though. This is one of the first hidden object games where I left the music on and didnt regret it after five minutes.

Puzzles werent bad. Most were pretty simple and self-explainatory, but there were a couple I got hung up on (mostly this one puzzle where you had to spin these two wheels to solve picture puzzle).

Only issue I had with the game, was the inventory. I didnt like how there wasnt an option to just leave the inventory window up all the time. It would have been very nice for a few parts in the game where you needed to use multiple items to solve a point and click puzzle. Minor annoyance, so nothing huge.

I didnt find any bugs.

Pretty fun story, puzzles were interesting, and the game lasted more than an hour. Highly recommend it

If you find classic quests too complex for you – this one is great example of casual quest.
There is no logic in this game, but at least you will not stuck at a hard place.

No I don't recommend this game to anyone...Maybe if I could get it to work. Looks nice but not playable. Tried to get the developers to help but they wouldn't respond. This is the second Frogwares game I have purchased that I couldn't get to run.

If it weren't for this game's price tag, I would not be recommending it; it is worth the low price, even more so while on sale.
I have enjoyed a few of Jetdog's games, so I know they're capable of pumping out decent quality games, but I got more and more irritated as I went through this game (though I feel bad for that) due to several small issues.

Fun bits
  • I think some of the puzzles in this game were really good, a lot of them didn't feel recycled and for the most part I think they were the highlight of the game. Making puzzles feel fresh is difficult in this genre so bravo, developers.
  • The hidden object puzzles are relatively sparse and therefore easy, but the game isn't exactly overflowing with them so it breaks the game up nicely.
  • I had absolutely no interest in the storyline whatsoever until the ending scene, which was a shame as it was a really intruiging ending!
  • The character models gave me a bit of a chuckle with their wandering eyes, but I thought they looked good. The game looks quite nice as well, no complaints about the graphics.
  • An effort was made with the voice acting, I've heard better and I've heard worse but it's nice when the effort has been put in to at least include voice acting.

Not so fun bits
  • The UI in this game had me so salty, because if you click too close to the bottom of the screen on your inventory, it'll take you back a scene. I don't know why this annoys me so much in HOGs but it just felt like a simple oversight.
  • I found most of the plot and game progression to be almost nonsensical - I'd be staring at the screen trying to use items and the one that made the least sense is the one I'd need. This made the game feel a bit comedic? I don't know if it was intentional.
  • My big bug bear with this game was the poor English. I have no problem with translated games that are made in another language, I'm just glad to get to play another hidden object game, but some of the phrasing in the text and tooltips either makes no sense or has been translated badly. I doubt this will bother most people but I just think that attention to small detail like that makes a big difference.

TL:DR - it's an alright HOG. I prefer the Frankenstein game from Jetdog as it feels like a fully fledged HOG, but this feels like a tablet port at times. Again, the price is fair for the game time (which is quite short unless you get stuck on one of the harder puzzles). It has achievements but they didn't pop up for me until I exited the game, so don't panic if you don't see them straight away! If you have a bit of money in your Steam wallet and want a relaxed game to play for a couple hours, this is the one.
Thanks for reading!

Not too bad. Short game play, (finished it in just a couple hours) so I wish it was longer. Puzzles were ok, only one I had to skip because I couldn't figure it out was the dragon stones one. For 2 bucks it was fine.

Game Storyline

It's your typical 'Lets go rescue/save someone from evil' theme that has been used frequently.

The storyline in Dracula's Legacy, it sort of radiates a little bit of 'cheesy B-rated movie feel,' similar to Sinister City. But Dracula's Legacy fair a bit better than Sinister City in gameplay wise.

Game Visual/Audio

There isn't much can be said about the game's visuals asides from that they're okay. Pretty much the same thing can be said about the game's audio. The audio can be adjusted in the game's option menu.

Gameplay

There are two different game difficulty modes to choose from: Easy and Advanced.

There are sixteen different achievements to be earned from the game. Each of these achievements has certain requirements that needs to be completed before they can be obtained. The achievements are rewarded after exiting the game.

The inventory panel doesn't have an option to have it lock in place. But it does slides up and down.

All of the hidden object scenes consists of traditional word lists. Some of them do require little or no interaction.

Most of the puzzles in the game are rather simple and easy to solve without much difficulty for some.

Miscellaneous

There are total of five different trading cards. You only get the three of those cards from the game. There are several ways to get the rest of the trading card: Purchased from Steam's Market; Trade with friends; Booster Packs and it's Booster Pack Creator.

Final thoughts, there's a bit of plot holes in the storyline, which breeds a bit of confusion in the player's mind. As it was mentioned before Dracula's Legacy fair a bit better than Sinister City in gameplay wise. But there isn't much of replayability nor its' story rememberable. I would recommend this game but not at full price.

"Fixed the bad but Broke the good at the same time"

I got it in 90% Halloween off and just finished it in 2 hours. I found it goes underpar than previous titles Frankenstein and Alchemy Misteries. Is that all Jetdogs Vampire games being cursed?

Good:
- Improved hidden object graphics details, description and object size
- Since larger hidden objects are easier to find, developers added few more puzzled object to combine and increased the challenge. Myself appreciate the larger object style
- Overall character, monster, background building and costume design are nicely done and become more artistic
- Puzzle are easier to solve, item will auto combine when they should be

Bad:
- Mini Puzzle recycled from previous titles
- Most Mini Puzzle this time is not funny
- Puzzle objective is not stated clearly unless you use Hint, which feels unfair and cheap
- Story is completely unreasonable, uninteresting and un-finsihed ending. Cannot feel any tension through out the game
- Main character don't even have a name until ending, totally forgettable
- World Map is removed and need player to travel step by step only

Verdict:
Little bit disappointed this time and hope their next title has more surprise and improvement. Get it on 90% is still good deal i think

Score:
6/10

It's okay. Not the best hidden object/casual adventure game ever, but it's quite entertaining. The hidden object scenes are rather boring and the adventure elements too often boils down to 'find the key, get one item, use that item, repeat', but the presentation is decent and the story is quite interesting.

For 14 cent you can't go wrong and even for the regular price of 3 bucks it's an enjoyable way to spend around two hours.

Short version: 62%
Dracula’s Legacy is short, super easy, and the story is barely tolerable with atrocious voice acting, but he absolutely stunning graphics make up for it – especially considering the price tag.

Long version:
The hidden object games published by JetDogs are nowhere near the greatest, but they tend to have some charm that makes them playable. Dracula’s Legacy fits nicely into this categorisation.

The first thing anyone will notice about this game is the art. I could throw around a few adjectives, but it really is stunning. Both the 2D and 3D art is gorgeous and there are tons of cinematics throughout the game.

The second thing that will be obvious is that the voice acting is beyond salvation. Although it fits well with the almost non-existent, paper-thin story that more or less boils down to finding a suitable weapon to kill the current monster blocking the path (in a rather violent way for a HOG, I might add). Still, I have to give it to the game: at least it is super easy and doesn’t wear out its welcome with its barely two-hour length, which fits nice along the super cheap price.

For the price you really can't say no to this game. However the graphics are older and a bit piexleated for wide screens. The story is decent enough but the achievements are buggy. All of my achievements popped up after exiting the game and none during the game. So that is a bit disappointing because as you play the game you don't know what you've achieved along the way. But hey at least it has achievements for the price!

Hard to pick yes or now, I'll go with the not recommended option, because of the questionable quality of the game.
The game is unusually cheap, only 3€, less than half of the usual Hidden Object Games ( ~8€) - this can be a strong point if you want to get it - around 1€ it's an okay purchase if you know what are you buying into.

The game was obviously made for machines with touchscreens - there is no accuracy to speak about, sometimes clicking on the middle of the screen brings up an action that's linked ot the very right side of the screen. Active zones are light up if pointed at, effectively showing how huge the clickable area is - while this is not a real negative, it takes away the precision from the game, resulting in much less actions / screen, and puzzles are also affected: instead of a hold and turn rotating puzzle, you need to click on the parts, because that's easier to do with touchscreen.
There are several problems with the game's english - having typos (they / there, can or can't) to the point of it was calling a half plastic glass a watering can (wasn't even used for that purpose, it was a funnel), a tool handle was called a broomstick, achievements asking for completing a game on expert while in the game the harder difficulty is called advanced mode.
While these doesn't affect the game, it reflects some of the care,attention and (maybe the lack of?) money the game got.
Speaking about money: I'm pretty sure they had budget problems during the creation of the game. The full cinematic parts are done relatively well. Not outstanding, but pretty nice for HOGs. But at the same time, the quality of ingame animation hit rockbottom after a point. At the start of the game you crack a wall with a pickaxe - the pickaxe is swinging, like you're moving it above your shoulder. Pretty nice. Later on fumigation of bees is the fumigator floating up to the beenest, and not even a single puff. They just disappear. Using a diving mask to go underwater? Mask floating to the water, then it's accessible in a way that you can just move underwater. Birds flying like in the infamous Birdemic movie. Items not even being rotated when used - keys floating to locks while pointing to the other direction, and things like this.

So in short:
- The usual vampire story, nothing of interest
- Supereasy interaction, which results in oversimplification
- Really nice stills (environment, characters) and cutscenes, but terrible item-interaction animations
- Questionable english at many points

If you want a good hidden object game to get into the genre, avoid this game. If you want this anyways, get it on a sale.

The graphics are okay, but for a hidden objects game this has very little hidden objects scenarios. There are a couple of fun sliding puzzles etc, but in general the point&click puzzle solving parts are so easy I have hard time believing I'm actually playing this on expert.

I know people don't play these kind of games because they're hard but because they're easy and relaxing - that's why I like them myself. But even so I get the feeling like this particular game was designed for someone recovering from a tragic brain injury. The game actually states you need a specific item, like a knife or a rake or a valve, for getting a specific task done. You just have to find the said objects ("PRO TIP": click on anything that sparkles).

Sometimes hidden object games have strange translations, but this one had some of the weirdest. Like why would I need a watering can to put gas in the tank? Because I didn't, I needed to make a funnel. Or I was looking for a comb as instructed, when the actual object in the scene was a hairbrush. The hidden object scenes ended up being like "click everything, it has to be one of these." The puzzles weren't much better. If I had to describe them with one word, it would be "tedious." And there was way too much running back and forth searching for items I remembered seeing before, but couldn't pick up then, because "of course you can't pick up the shotgun now, you haven't found any shells yet."

Usually I try not to skip stuff, but in this one I ended up skipping quite a few puzzles, because I just wanted the game to end. Could have skipped the ending as well, because it explained nothing. I'm all for stories were everything it not spelled out for you, but this game really had no ending, it just stopped. If I have to find something positive, it could be that I got the achievement for Expert mode, although I'm quite certain I selected Casual when I started the game.

I can't really recommend this, except if you get it really cheap and are willing to go through an inordinate amount of the typical game mechanics silliness present in this type of games. (Note: I usually like hidden object games, but this one was just too much.)
