The game is loosely based on Bram Stoker‘s novel Dracula with the maker’s going as far as to claim Bram Stoker himself “narrates” the story (its just on screen text).

The player takes the role of Jonathan Harker as he tries to escape from Dracula’s Castle. The game bears a striking resemblance to the Alone in the Dark survival horror games despite pre-dating the series by one year.



‘The nearly colorless presentation gives Dracula: The Undead the feel of an old photograph come to life; indeed, the game opens with a crisply digitized shot of Dracula’s piercing eyes. (Yes, Hammer horror fans, they are the eyes of actor Christopher Lee.) Certain rooms can only be reached by – gasp! – climbing out a window and clinging to the castle’s outer wall, and there are some terrific lighting effects in the scenes where Jonathan carries a lantern into the catacombs where Dracula sleeps. While most Lynx games have a dated look, Dracula: The Undead manages to hold up simply because of its unusual look’. John Huxley, Defunct Games
