Combat felt much better--and gorier-- than in Pocket Legends. You can now press down to charge your vampire's main attacks and magic spells, which adds a bit more depth. You can also use cool dark magic abilities, like summoning a swarm of rats to nibble at your enemies, or exploding their guts with a burst of blood.
The characters in the game are more proportional, which lends the game a slightly more realistic look. We were reminded of the Bloodrayne series due to the more violent, mature visual style. Also like in Bloodrayne, you can occasionally leap onto an enemy to drain them of blood, which refills your combination magic and health pool.
