Good Game

If you want a mildly challenging, fun to play puzzle game, it's the game for you.
The graphics aren't that advanced but the gameplay is surprisingly good.
There are about 48 levels in this game and it could be beaten in 3-5 hours, but overall it's good to kill time.
By the way, I downloaded it for free a month or so earlier, and as you know, being available for free at any time means the game must have in app purchases so if you want to play as more than a couple of characters, you need to buy coins ...
If it remains free, it is worth the time, but I wouldn't spend any money on it.

Avoid sun, vamp puzzle

I played only a couple levels so far, but although it's not the most graphically advanced and the controls take a minute to get used to, it is kind of a unique game. You basically try to avoid the sun by rotating the landscape with the right stick so you can stay in the shadows and reach the end of each level. The left stick is for moving and there are multiple characters you can unlock (they cost a lot of coins though $$).

I like it!

Yeah movement is a little glitchy, but I like it. Nice graphics. I like helping my little vampire across the island. Most levels are easy but occasionally you find a tough one. I kind of wish I could see all the island but that would probably be a let down if I could see. I wish the other vampires weren't so expensive.
