Bloodlines: The Alexa Holmes Chronicles is an exciting and suspenseful vampire-slaying trivia game that transcends into the Art Deco era of the extravagant 1930s. One fateful stormy night, Alexa Holmes, an attractive young detective (played by you), discovers that her grandfather, the infamous detective Sherlock Holmes, has been brutally murdered. Orphaned at birth, he was the only family that she knew of.
As the director of a newly formed Paranormal Division of the English government, Dr. Watson takes Alexa under his wing, sending her on a pursuit to avenge the death of her late grandfather. Little does she know, she must plunge into the underworld of the supernatural, deducting clues along the way, staying hot on the global trail of the evil vampire forces, avenging her family’s tragic misfortune, and ultimately discovering her destiny… are you up for the challenge?

The story of this game is good, but not amazing. Graphically game looks amazing, but the menus are a little bit laggy if you try and move through them quickly. The vampires are beautifully drawn and music is for me the best part of this game. However lots of hints repeat itself and they are easy (note that I played on normal difficulty). Another thing that I don't like is the fact that the game is repetitive and considering the that the hints are fairly easy to guess I would not recommend it to someone who is looking for a trivia game. If you are in for a beautiful adventure, and don't mind the issues that I wrote, then buy this. Overall I don't regret my purchase but there are a few things that stop me from giving this a 5 star rating
Already looking forward to the sequel!
This game caught my attention with its cool screen shots in the app store. I am so glad I bought it and have totally gotten sucked into the story. The different vampire characters were very well designed and it is a struggle to put the game down as I am so addicted to killing the next vamp...I love seeing what they all look like right before they get added to the killed list! Ooooh and don't even get me started on the fun gross sounds! LOL! The game is visually stunning from the title screen through to the end and so stinkin' fun to play...what a great way to mask geological trivia! I'm already playing through the game a second time...SEQUEL PLEASE!!!
An engaging mystery game
As others have remarked, this game is a more adult take on the 'where in the world...' type of games. Dust off your knowledge of geography, and prepare to track vampires around the world.
The game could be a bit short for those who are advanced in this type of trivia knowledge game, but it is a satisfying voyage. The graphics are atmospheric, as is the music and sound. the interface works beautifully and the save/load system to come back to your game already in progress works perfectly. Just remember, this is graphic novel gaphics style, and not cartoon style... Excellent Job!
