Vlad awakens after years of sleep to find his possessions have been stolen... And now he wants them back!
The object of the game is to solve puzzles in order to retrieve Vlads stolen possessions and bring them back to the castle, and also by avoiding enemies such as Police men, rats and drips of toxic goo.
At certain points during the night you may run into some people. These people can be eaten to increase health (and may also drop an item!).
People will run at the very sight of you, and the police will quickly run and try to beat you to death. Pressing the Transform key will change you to Human form and will stop you from being detected!
Dead of Night also uses a day/night cycle (of sorts!). As Vlad is a vampire, he can only stay out at night, and as such must either retreat to his castle or find some other way to evade the sun.
Dead of Night is an adventure game where you are a vampire who wakes up in his castle to find that he has had a variety of items stolen, you set out to get them back. The town and other areas are nicely detailed with Commodore 64 inspired graphics and you will spend your time trying to find items that can be used to solve puzzles and other objectives while trying to avoid police and animals that can hurt you and force you to retreat to your castle, you can attack your foes to regain health and turn into a human for a brief time to avoid suspicion. You also avoiding the sun which can kill you. The sun comes out every few minutes and you need to find an area to hide from it in, this can start to become very annoying with how often it happens and how often it gets in the way of what you are doing. There is a hard mode with no saves that will remove your save upon death. There is some good humor and self referential jokes. It's going to be a more interesting game for players who want to feel some nostalgia for older titles but it's a decent and low priced game on its own.
