With beautiful music and incredible comic-style hand-drawn cut scenes, Vampire Origins offers a powerful, story-driven introduction to the Vampire Saga, introducing new characters and plotlines as the history of this world begins to unfold. Truly immerse yourself in the gothic nightmare as you use the amazing new gyroscope gun range to take down those bloodsuckers before you become overrun! The Tavern is a non-linear addition to the main game; dark city streets surround this haven for vampire hordes! Race against time to save Elsa!

Vampire Origins: RELOADED features a variety of engaging game play scenarios. Shoot, evade, and explore as you make your way through the beautifully crafted Gothic world. Theres an innovative close-up sword-fighting mechanic, potions, scrolls, keys, levers and more to find and use. Not to mention set of clever, entertaining puzzles and vicious bosses.

Introducing the brand new Gun Range Survival Mode exclusive to iPhone 4! The object is simply to stay alive until dawn. Sounds easy? Well the legions of deadly demons closing in around you have something to say about that. With accuracy and speed at your fingertips, use the new and innovative gyro control system to blast the hordes to bits in nonstop action game-play. Once youve taken out the monsters, compare scores with your friends on the fully-integrated Crystal leaderboards, and earn and admire a trophy shelf full of story-based Achievements!

Explore an impressive and sinister three-dimensional world, discovering Gothic artifacts, new weaponry, and plenty of terrifying monsters as you go. Dark alleys crawl with demonic vampires and youll be thankful for every bit of light on screen! Utilizing the new Retina Display, this already gorgeous game just got even better. This is high-quality iPhone gaming at its best.

The start of this epic, entertaining saga is not to be missed. Check out what the critics are raving about:

"A well-developed story line, unique controls, and fresh game play throughout leave you wanting more... a serious addition to the shooting game genre, and packs some serious unique and fresh designs to keep game play fun throughout." - 148Apps

"a macabre 3D shooter reminiscent of Alone in the Dark and early Resident Evil titles... The story that ties it all together, well rendered in cartoon-style cut scenes, did have me anxious to see how things turn out." - TouchArcade

"Vampire Origins feeds on folklore rather than saps it. Of course, it's gameplay that counts, and the quality combination of tap-action and adventure is enthralling." - PocketGamer

"Dracula games hardly get any better than Vampire Origins. Awesome gothic environment, a spooky soundtrack, pretty easy controls, and nerve-wrecking atmosphere should keep you glued to your device through the end." - Geek.com

I always value your opinions on games, and you helped me make great choices in games to pick-up or not. Hurry back with some impressions on the game and how long you estimate play time.

The graphics look bad in the screenshots, especially when you consider how long this game has been in development.
I suppose it is a bit early for impressions right now.
