App description: Vampire Puff Puff the only interactive comic book experience with vampires, demons, zombies, bansheep, bounty-hunters, blood sac beasties, skeleton armies, fire impoos, reluctant kamikaze spiders, one alpaca and a lobster in a cowboy hat.

Vampire Puff Puff comes from the mind of artist Roman Dirge. Venture though five levels of vampire-y mayhem to rescue your kidnapped rotting bestest buddy Lenore from the stinky clutches of Heck's numero uno bounty hunter, Pooty Applewater.

Battle with an arsenal of unusual weapons like the Poe Poe Gun - a gun that shoots live ravens and then weeps like a lost child in a mall when empty. Collect the skulls of the fallen to upgrade at Cap' N Drizzle's Weaponarium!
Sure you're a vampire that's been turned into a cotton plush toy and your fangs are worth bupkiss now but every now and then you happen upon a walking blood sac beastie and poof yourself back into a clawed snazzy dressed full fledged Nosferatu!

Vampire Puff Puff also features a complete soundtrack composed by former Bauhaus/Love and Rockets member Kevin Haskins.

Jump in and enjoy a truly unique comic book experience!

*Update* People who have not upgraded their iOS to iOS 4 or later have had some issues with the game crashing. If you are having this issue please update your iOS and enjoy!

Looks interesting. Confused about the "interactive comic book" blurb and what appears to be familiar side scrolling gameplay from the one screenshot. A video would do the trick here.

It pains me to say this, but this game is absolutely terrible.

Calling the gameplay "broken" is putting it nicely. You can't jump, only move left and right with a button for attacking. You just walk to the right through the embarrassingly short levels spamming the attack over and over without any strategy whatsoever. The animations are jerky, and some of the backgrounds fail to load so you're just fighting through a blank white screen until the next area can scroll in. There's a little shop where you can buy different weapons, but honestly none of them are very fun to use. Also the entire game can be beaten in literally less than 10 minutes.

The real killer is that the art style and story are amazing. The characters and enemies are interesting, and there are really humorous fully voiced cutscenes in between levels. It's as if a really talented comic book creator said "I want to make a game!" but had absolutely no idea how to code one. By the sound of the destructoid article, that might be exactly what happened.

It's a shame this game is so bad because it could have been really cool in the hands of a capable developer. I don't even think updates can save this one. They would have been better served just releasing a comic app instead.
