Moregames/Chillingo has updated their popular survival shooter iDracula to version 1.1 [App Store]. The new features include:

  • 4 new monsters
  • 2 new maps
  • Perk system updated, new perks added
  • 2 game modes: Super Survival, Wave Attack
  • New powerups - Haste, Rage, Time Stop, Bomb (only available in Super Survival mode)
  • Earn money and buy reinforcement in Wave attack mode
  • Rush mode updated - you can choose a weapon now.
  • Added 2 new options for better weapon switching
  • 2 new weapons - one (Blade Ripper) only accessible in Rush mode, other (Flamethrower) is everywhere.

Be forewarned, the update clears your high scores, presumably due to the level balance changes included in 1.1.

App Store Link: iDracula, $2.99

    Just add one more thing, a story mode, and I'll be happy. :D But really this is a great update.

    The vendor and the circle of reinforcements is pretty cool, but I walked into and bought the wrong stuff a few times. Badass update though!

    Story mode is slated by the developer for a distinct larger, more expensive application.

    yeah, totally kick butt update - thanks Chillingo, you rock!!

    just wondering, is there a way to change my name from 'player'?

  • David Galvan

    I second marc's question. How do I change my name from 'player'? Seems kinda silly that all the high scores will come from the same entity: player.

  • stargazer

    yah, to change your name, just double tap "player", and the text box will appear after a short interval

    @Jay-S, I was a bit salty with the whole losing my omens and hi scores being wiped away too. But in playing, they have turned a mediocre game IMO, into a damn fine game deserving of top ten ranking:D thanks to the dev!

    Great update, but is anyone finding they crash a lot. I never once crashed with the first one, but this one I've had 3 crashes in the past hour. I was playing wave mode, and when it crashes it doesn't save your level. Instead it remembers the last game before that one. If this keeps up I might have to wait for an update. :(

    Other than the crashes it's a pretty awesome game. :)

    Awesome update! This has been one of my favorite games and now I enjoy it even more with this update :D Great stuff indeed but I am also bummed out that it erased my high scores:(

    Yes, this is an awesome update. They seem to have fixed the perks system too, no more repeating perks. On some occasion, perks are offered in context to what weapon you have at hand, for example, when I'm using a Shotgun, I was offered the Shotgun Master perk. Sweeet!

    One bad thing: I'm going to be spending way too much time on this. The high-scores are reset - I need to work on getting back my 1.7 million points (or better).

    Chillingo and Moregames, you people rock!

    @stargazer: Thanks! For others who hadn't figured it out, you double-tap the name (player) when you are selecting which map and game mode to play.

    GREAT update. The super-survival mode has lots of cool extras in addition to the perks, like bombs that destroy all on-screen monsters when you touch them, and an item that makes you run super-fast, and an item that freezes all monsters for a few seconds while you kill 'em. good stuff.

    I installed the update and it has crashed every time I've selected wave attack on graveyard. It finishes loading then crashes.
    Haven't got time to try anything else.

    @n00b, you get the update when you look at the updates-section in your appStore app on your iPhone/iTouch.

    Anyway, I'm not receiving the update. Maybe because the app only updated in the US app store? Here in little Belgium, it isn't updated anyway :(

    Awesome update! I was sad to lose my omens, but I only had 5.

    What I'd love to see:
    A Holiday update come October featuring the graveyard level with Halloween additions, the castle level with Thanksgiving additions and the snow level with Christmas additions.
