"Ideal iPhone Adaptation of a Classic"

- Jennifer Beam, review in AppCraver

Princess Sabrina needs you!

Come play the classic adventure game Transylvania™. This is a remake of the popular personal computer game from the 1980s. You will wander a haunted landscape and face a howling werewolf, a sinister vampire, and other supernatural foes on your quest to find and rescue the princess!

Transylvania™ is an old-school, retro-graphics adventure game, with a new twist -- a friendly iPhone interface:

● A spin control (or a standard command line) for entering commands
● Tap to move around or take/look at objects
● Tap and hold on objects to get a menu of commands
● Handy buttons for:
- Help
- Checking inventory
- Saving your game
- Switching between text and graphics
- Running away from monsters!

There are also plenty of spooky sounds and a few animations thrown in, too!

But beware the werewolf...


Author's Note to New Players:

This game is the product of two developers' hard work. It is designed to be a fun, nostalgic experience for those who remember the original adventure games of yore, and new players who want to enjoy a fun little game. It is not a modern, shoot-'em-up with Hollywood production values.

What's New in Version 1.2

Added dedication to Steve Jobs.

Customer Reviews

Great job! But full game too pricey.

Great job recreating this game. I wish I could play the full version. For .99 I'd buy it. But for 4.99? I don't think so when I could be buying Madden NFL, Hot Pursuit, Infinity Blade, all of the Angry Birds apps, and many more modern and complex apps for a similar price.

Fortunately this free Lite version was all I needed since my primary goal was to show my daughter what games were like when I was young. It's a shame we can't complete the game. Drop it to .99 and you'll get a lot more buyers! ;)


I downloaded the lite version to reacquaint myself with the game after 20 some years. I could not enter the castle until I purchased the full version. So I did.... Well, I just won the game. I killed the werewolf, the vampire, blew up a statue and a space ship, found Sabrina, and brought her safely what? What did I play the game for? I can't even let someone else try to play the game...the screen won't go back to normal. I am very disappointed. I feel like if we are duped into buying the whole game and we win, we should be brought up to a next level or new game (like saving the other daughter of the king). It shouldn't just end!

My 1st DOS Game...

i give this app 4 out of 5 stars simply for the fact that this was my first DOS game, and the original concept/storyline is still solid for its time. however, the one-star deduction reflects charging $4.99 for the full version (it's over the top). i would imagine that the marketing focuses on individuals who actually played the original game. good comeback but this reminisce should be valued at most $0.99. cheers!
