Montreuil, September 5th, 2011.

After the release of “Dracula: The Path of the Dragon” in 2010, Anuman Interactive is going back to where the terror first began with the adaptation of the trilogy’s first installment on mobile platforms. This new release, already very popular with gamers, allows players to step into the shoes of Bram Stoker's well-known character: Jonathan Harker.

Following the disappearance of his fiancée, Mina, he has no choice but to leave for Transylvania to investigate this kidnapping. His search quickly leads him to Count Dracula's castle doors...

Divided into three parts, this adaptation faithfully recreates the universe depicted by the writer and leads the player into a frightening and oppressive atmosphere. Just like the trilogy’s third installment (The Path of the Dragon), “Dracula Resurrection” is a first-person, point-‘n’-click adventure, allowing the player to move 360° around the game’s various environments, to interact with the characters as well as to solve the puzzles and complete the mini-games he finds along the way.

The player also has an interactive inventory at his disposition, where he can collect and store objects during the adventure. After selecting an object, it will appear in the quick menu bar and the player can use it by touching the screen when necessary.

“Dracula Resurrection” also offers a permanent help feature, which can be activated or deactivated as desired. This help feature, designed primarily for beginning players, indicates the interactions and the zones onscreen to explore with the help of animated symbols. For players who are keen to discover a new, exciting gaming experience, a "Compass Look" feature is available in the menu options. The gyroscope mimics iPad and iPhone movements in the game, and gives players the possibility of looking 360° around them.

Like the games already released on AppStore, "Dracula Resurrection" is available in English, French, Spanish, Italian and German (EFIGS).

“Dracula Resurrection" is available from September 1st, 2011 on the AppStore in the "Games" category.
