Totally agree. They can't use the same sale method they used with iDracula. This gimmick didn't even work with iDracula as you can see it dropped surprisingly fast from the Top 100 Chart. Even with the 0.99 price tag, it hovers at around #80.

Well, I'd say it was the pricing strategy and the backlash from people expecting a full game and got an arena shooter with an update that took long in coming (what did they expect for 99 cents?)

Ah well, looks like Vampire Origin gets the top row front springboard page, next to iDracula, Zenonia, Real Racing and Fieldrunners. Hope there's different combos you can do.

This looks absolutely amazing, any idea on price point and control scheme yet?

Beta tested: Parallelus, Galactic Gunner, Crazy Snowboard, IMO

Actually, in the original book, Van Helsing is an old man. That (horrible, horrible, horrible) movie made him look like a super hero.

I snapped this picture with my iPhone just now from an edition of the book I have. This is Edward Gorey's depiction of Van Helsing:


Not really an action hero if you ask me.

they should make the guy in the game to be that old man to be more acurate.
OMSFFIT®-the guy in the movie just was the default idea of a vamp hunter

I have to say the screen shots look really good, but I'm really on the fence believing that is on an iphone. Don't get me wrong I'm a huge supporter of iphone and believe the gaming device is and can achieve great things in terms of graphics and fun games. Those screens just look to good and we haven't seen anything come close to those kinds of detailed lighting effects. Look at Assassins Creed that is due next week those screens look great, but nothing as crisp as these screens we've been shown. I need to see some video of the game in action on the iphone/touch to be made a believer. Just my thoughts on what appears to be a game like devil may cry from the screens, but I'll take a wait and see approach before I get to excited.
