This is an amusing arcade game in which you must run around the castle to switch the lights on while avoiding the vampire bats. Beware of sleeping Dracula as lights wake him from his coffin. Can you survive 'till dawn!

Review:Although the tunes are as irritating as usual, this is a neat variation on Pacman. The graphics are clear and move very smoothly. One nice touch is the way Dracula runs around like a lunatic turning off all the lights.
The controls work well but this can be very tough as the screen quickly fills with bats. Like the original, you can gain immunity, which is needed as the lights reset every time you are stunned. The biggest issue is that there is a single screen, limiting any replay value.
