    I must admit I've never played it. Must dig it out some time and have a go.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Hello Burns,

    Brides of Dracula is the most fun when you play it with two player as it is intended to be.
    Solo it becomes rather boring as the computer knows exactly where to find the items or the women, also at some point the enemy just stood still on the screen and let himself be killed over and over.
    I won because the enemy player refused to move.

    And every time they are ready to pronounce a winner, a new contender appears on the scene.

    Yes, it was a bit dull if it was 1-player. The split-screen worked well (horizontal, and it was a horizontal-scroller game), and Helsing walked in a funny way. I always wondered if Smokey the Bong Elf had a purpose or if he was just background scenery. Fun game, but only as 2-player.

    I just watched a vid of it and I remember now that some of the enemies walking around would only attack one of the characters. That was quite neat. Villagers would only attack Dracula, not Helsing - and all the bats/undead were the opposite. So you'd both be playing in the same arena, but the environment would react in different ways depending who you were.

    Yeah Van Helsing's strange posture and walk made me think he was the town drunk or something.
    And yes, the elf with the bong, what was up with that.

    I wonder, can 2-players game be played over the net with WinUAE?

    I read on the internet the other day that if you jump around the Bong Elf and time it just right, something happens.
