Apple Games Features A Vampyre Story
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature article, this time traveling with the creatures of the night in A Vampyre Story. The point and click adventure tells the tale of opera singer Mona De Lafitte who struggles with her new life after being turned into a vampire. Apple Games' article includes an overview of the game's features and list of tips and tricks for success.

During the tour, I learned much about Monaís attempts to flee the castle. With Froderick at her side, she had begun collecting things that might come in handy: a flask of body oil, a bottle of perfume, bags of the batís fruits and nuts, one of his old toys, and more. She has even noted things too heavy to carry but which might prove useful later, such as a rusty sword.

Mona has figured out how to use those items in combination with each other and her environment to solve puzzles. For example, the flask of body oil helped her loosen a stuck hinge on a trap door in the torture chamber. She didnít have enough oil for the other hinge, but she was able to use a crushing device to extract more of it from the fruits and nuts. Unfortunately, once she had the trap door open, the stench emanating from the pit below was too much for her and Rufus.

That pit is just one of several mysteries in Castle Warg, which was once controlled by the Baroness von Kiefer. She enchanted many of the things found there, so Mona hasnít lacked for conversation partners. Ozzy the Fountain, Barb the iron maiden, and even some local rats gave her crucial information that eventually led to the identity of the gargoyle who keeps the boathouse key. Rufus, however, has proven obstinate. A statue that sits far above, next to Edgar the ravenís roost, could persuade him to spit out his prized possession if it landed on his head, but Mona has been unable to budge it.
