iDracula - Undead Awakening is a shooter game by Chillingo Ltd. $2.99

This game by the creators of Orions: Legend of Wizards is one of my most played games. The great pick-up and play nature of this game provides fun for all people. This shooter game is fast paced super addictive. The great way the game is played means that you aren't button mashing a shoot button, just continuously giving your fingers a workout. The latest version of the game has provided alot more to do, with two new game modes, bumping it up to four, and the option to choose out of three landscapes with slightly different enemies instead of one. All of these updates provide a heap more to do, and justifies why the price went from $0.99 to $2.99. There are no difficulty levels in iDracula, but each of the game modes start with easy characters but they get stronger and faster as you progress, but to counteract that so do your weapons. This game stands out from the rest with the way the controls work and how well it looks I believe, but the gameplay is something that must be experienced.

This game is super detailed, which is nothing short of what I expected from MoreGames. Everything from the unique monsters, the different landscapes and your character is built to perfection. All of the different monsters look original and detailed in their movement. The landscapes have alot of different items and places in them and looks just amazing. This game is super polished with there never being any frame rate issues, even when there are alot going on in the screen in the later stages of the game. There are eight different weapons which all have unique properties such as reload speed, damage and look. The controls in this game are well thought out, and are a welcome change from the old d-pad. There are two circular buttons on each side of the screen down the bottom of the screen. They are both used in a circular motion and wherever the arrow is pointing while your finger is still on it is the way you will walk/shoot. This sounds like you won't be doing much, but both of the buttons will keep your fingers moving alot as it is needed to survive. The left button is used to run around avoiding the monsters while the right button is used to shoot your weapon. In the middle of these are the different weapons, which can be changed by swiping left or right. This is a big let-down as it is really hard to change them while keeping your focus on the game. I would like to see a tap left or right to change the weapons instead, or an improvement on the swiping action.

The soundtrack in the game fits the type of game perfectly. The music soundtrack just replays itself over and over with the edgy, fast paced beat. The rock music is a great way to kill enemies I must admit, and I really enjoy listening to it. The weapons all have their unique sound effect and when you are attacked by the monsters they also make a noise.

I will explain the four game modes. Survival mode is the main mode which I play. This mode starts you off with a simple gun and a few slow and week monsters coming towards you. As you last longer they increase in speed and strength but so do your weapons. Every three levels, which happen with the game still playing, a dracula appears and you must kill him to collect an omen while monsters are still attacking you. Every now and then you can get a perk that increases your health, gives you special powers or more points in some circumstances. You keep playing until you are killed. Super Survival mode works on the same principal as Survival with a few tweaks. Basically there are a few original perks and dropped items that you can find in Super Survival, otherwise it is the same. Rush is the mode you would play if you want to finish the game in only a minute or two. I don't believe that you can earn any omens from Rush, but I haven't lasted long enough to find out. The basic principal is that you get to choose out of 3 weapons to fight with, and the one you choose has unlimited ammo. The very first monster from Survival comes at you faster and in greater numbers non-stop until you die. There are no health potions or anything in this mode. Wave Attack is as close as you can get to a story mode in iDracula. There enemies come in waves and you must kill them all before having a break between levels where a mystical guy will sell you what is usually dropped by the monsters. The monsters drop money instead so you can choose what to buy.

Each of these game modes provide alot of fun, and I have played all four of them countless times. I can't believe how good everything is in this game, with no room for errors. A few glitches were in version 1, which I found out and they have gladly been fixed by MoreGames. iDracula has huge replayability just from its sheer addictiveness. I would like to see an online leaderboard as well, and maybe on the leaderboard have an Omen count to see who the real Dracula hunters are. This game is perfection for its price, I would happily pay a more premium price like $4.99 for this game, but people wouldn't give it the treatment it deserves. For $2.99 it is a steal, and hopefully more updates can come to supply everyone with their dose of iDracula.

Gameplay- 10/10
Graphics- 10/10

Sound- 9.5/10
Overall- 9.5/10


I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- Orions: Legend of Wizards

Very nice graphics, iPhone games are really picking up and looking more like PSP type games etc.
iDracula looks like it could be pretty cool and long lasting.

I loved this game after the first major update -it added a lot of content to it. I still prefer iDracula over Minigore, but we'll see when the first major update for Minigore comes out.

I like this game because of the horror moments I can get and also because of the creepy environments I the game has, it's perfect because when you don't expect a monster appears over you.

iDracula - Undead Awakening is indeed a really good game! It’s one of the first titles that I earlier downloaded on my iPhone 3 and it was surprisingly amazing. The gameplay was super smooth and the action in reserve actually blew me away. I loved the monsters and weapons that are to be collected. Well written article here, keep it up!
