One of the better Scott Adams efforts. Count Dracula is stalking you, and you need to fend him off while you're assembling the requisite tools to defeat him. Requires long-range planning in a way that almost guarantees you'll have to replay, but it's a minor sin since the game is relatively short (and it also makes the game feel more complex and involved). One of the most interesting features is that the game is spread over three nights (and you need to avoid getting attacked when you fall asleep the first two nights); your dreams, though they flash by too quickly for you to really see, point to something significant that you discover later in the game. Most of the vampire cliches surface at one point or another, but Adams has fun with some of them as well, and generally it's pretty good considering the limited medium. Two-word parser.
