Gwan Play is an endful stream of game retrospectives. One a day, on one day, perhaps for all Wednesday.
Christmas simply isn’t Christmas without Dracula Cha Cha, I said in 2014. Dracula goes for a stroll on a chilly Winterval day, collecting presents, smashing snowmen, deploying his Dracula Karate against Christmas trees, and bopping to Green Door. Ah, it’s all so merry! I always play it round Christmas. But I never did mention that a new version followed in 2015 to add more levels and such traditional Christmas activities as bowling and defending your thesis. G’wan, play it.
Dracula Cha Cha is a Draculised take on pocket telephone game Tomena Sanner. Draccy baby walks constantly to the right, with one-button controls to jump so he can avoid obstacles and collect power-ups as well as do things and play minigames. Face Santa in a dance-off! Play the bongos! Play rock, paper, scissors with reindeer! Defend your thesis against questioning! Beat a carnival high striker! Dracula Karate, baby!
The new levels are a weird and fun bunch, romping through a Tarzan-y jungle, visiting Venice, riding a motorbike through Japan, and surfing. Great tunes too.
Everyone’s on about Super Mario Run this week but can Mario ride on the back of a reindeer’s moped or graduate college? Pfff.
