OPERATION DRACULA is a tough, tough game; as you’d expect from an arcade-stylebullet hell shooter. You’re going to die a lot but you should enjoy what’s here in the meantime.
You get a choice of three characters to choose from, each offering their own set of moves. Their weaponry is suitably varied with bombs and special powers charging as you fight, assuming you don’t get hit by anything. You’re going to get hit by a lot.
Controls are simple though, with you dragging a ship around with your finger, and a double tap on the screen unleashing a special move. As is customary for the genre, the trick here is to learn the patterns of attack and to react accordingly. At times it can be a little frustrating (even on ‘easy’ mode), but OPERATION DRACULA’s over the top colorful nature will endear you towards what’s here.
Don’t expect to complete OPERATION DRACULA any time soon, if ever, but do expect to enjoy the ride.
