For some reason, certain upcoming games seem to capture the imagination of our readers, and this time around it's Moregames' iDracula which is being published by Chillingo.

As a survival shooter, the game appears to be a simpler affair than some had hoped but this new gameplay video gives you a taste of the action:

Directional and shooting controls are handled independently with two control sticks. The game is expected to be released on February 20th.

Update: More details from the developer:

This is not a RPG kind of game by any means. It has no storyline, no NPC, no other locations. It is actually the same genre as Crimsonland or Alien Shooter on a PC - only one level, but a lot of replayability to beat the high score. There's also a Perk system like the one in Crimsonland or Fallout, it adds to replayability, too.

However, it's just amazingly fun - the video is on early stages of the game, and doesn't show the real fun behind.

The game will initially have one level (come on, it's .99), however the update will be released in less than 2 weeks. This update will include more monsters, two new levels and probably new game modes. Probably more perks and some other features too.

Also, please understand that $.99 price is the introductory price, while the normal price is $2.99.
We are also considering a "premium" version of the game, which will include a RPG-like system, a story, lots of levels and different actions (and obviously, a higher price).

To answer the latest question - it's not the autofire. You can release the button and the character stops shooting.

    Is the weapon auto-fired?
    Thats lame.

    But still looks cool none the less.

    Yeah, the auto-fire just turns me off. Shame. It looks awesome.

    Also seem to be some collision issues. At 1:24 the survivor walks through two attacking monsters to the attack them from the other side. Not clear how that affected his health bar as it was off screen.

    I don't mind auto-fire, if the result is a good control scheme. Games where you fire manually are fun, but auto-fire can be fun too.

    I hope the user can swap the 2 control pads: thanks to many desktop shooters, I'm used to moving with my left hand (WASD) and aiming with my right (mouse).

  • Big Albie

    I think they decided on iDracula Vampire Hunter as the name, but in any case, the graphics look great so we'll just wait and see on the controls and gameplay.

    I think the Paradise comparisons were right on. This looks like it'll be fun.

    I'm sure people will complain after all of the hype, but the dev never promised anything. This looks exactly like I thought it would.

    Still looks good despite only one location. Looking forward to future revisions with more levels and locations, storyline, and RPG elements.

    I do like the philosophy of rewarding early adopters, who financially support early, unfinished iterations of the game. That said, I eagerly look forward to the gameplay at $2.99.

    Is it confirmed autofire, or Smash TV fire-on-directional command input? Regardless, I hope that control setup is for demonstrating an optional lefthanded mode- no one plays games like that.

    I think this might end up being a fun bite-sized arcade game once it's released.

    I don't mind the lack of plot either. Not everything needs to have some sort of story to it, take a look at some of the arcade classics of the 80s. Sure a paragraph setting up the situation would be nice, but I'm satisfied leaving the rest to my imagination.

    Same for me, was looking forward to this based on the graphic style but the almost metronome firing sent me to sleep. Hopefully the review will change my mind..

    I don't know, if i buy this $0.99 game and when the 'premium' come out I would buy again. They should have design it on premium or just put in levels and storyline and sell it for $5.99. Might, be a better sale/marketing. I've never actually buy a game sold at difference prices before. Although, this game might be the first for me. Looks, good though.

    This isn't autofire by the way! It's like dropship controls. The guy playing doesn't lift his thumbs off either of the circles. Looks kinda boring, but should be worth it for 0.99. Not sure about 2.99 though. Will definitely wait for the RPG-style though, as Chillingo's been releasing some solid titles, and Orions was pretty close to fantasy type gaming and addictive. So. GO CHILLINGOO.

    I like the controls, they are unique. Especially to move - a turn-wheel instead of a joystick, let go to stop moving. Not a bad idea.

    I think it'll be kind of fun for more than few days and I can certainly see why the 99 cent price tag.

    It's funny the screenshot looks way more crisp than the vid.

    And what's with the guys legs.......they're bloody spastic!!!!

    I noticed the controlls are the wrong way around. Walking seems to be on the right side and the fire-direction on the left. Would be interesting to know if that is swappable.
