Every Once In a while a game comes along that sparkles with polish like a home owned by an obsessive-compulsive with a Mr Muscle fetish. Dracula Twins - a platform adventure, which sees you saving your father Count Dracula from an evil captor - is just such a game.
It's obvious from the outset just how much skill and attention-to-detail has been put into this, with the 3D engine almost on a par with many full-priced retail platform adventures. The linear yet entertaining gameplay is divided up into bite-sized levels, each one packed with jumps, traps and combat aplenty. With a beautifully composed Danny Elfman-esque musical score, crisp visuals and slick action, along with two mildly distinctive characters to play as, there's little here to seriously criticise other than a lack of challenging puzzles and the occasional control issue.
While its simplistic gameplay is probably more suited to under-tens than hairy grown-ups (or Veet users), Dracula Twins is still one of the most polished and adept indie games we've seen in months.
