Kid Dracula -- Konami

Whimsical graphics and a light-humored storyline set the tone in Kid Dracula for the Nintendo GameBoy. Turn into a bat or use other spells to defeat ghosts, zombies, and other classic creatures in this side-scrolling action title.

New hope for a dying system? Well, a little at least. Kid has some neat little touches, and was fun. This game has potential to be enhanced and released on a 16-bitter. It's time for the big 'N' to release a new color portable. Until then this game will tide enthusiasts of all ages over.

Another cute GameBoy game which is obviously trying to sell itself off with the Dracula name. Graphics were fair and the sound was not even there. Gameplay did not require much, and the game suffered from ever existent blur. This game just didn't keep me interested.

This was a cool game... While all in all it was your standard platform game, it has lots of character. For instance when you finish each level your character whips his cape around him and you hear it whip and snap. All in all this is a fun game with nicely sized graphics that don't make your eyes bleed trying to watch... also... there was little if any blur on the screen... Check it out.

Kid Dracula has very solid gameplay and is generally well rounded. While not exceptionally unique, it does have a sense of personality and is lively. Very well executed.
