Trust me when I say we have a shared interest. On the outskirts of the border town Stritiba, there lies a tower inhabited by the worst of scoundrels. Maybe you've heard of it, but few know who resides at the top: none other than Fane! I know during the war you wiped out all of Fane's lieutenants, but the vampire prince eluded you. I can offer you a bounty for taking care of Fane, but we both know the job will be reward enough.
I suggest you conceal your identity on this mission, for Fane has both vampire and human in his employ...
Manipulating light is crucial to your survival. Don't hesitate to turn on and off torches.
The question icon is displayed when an enemy can't currently see you. Use this knowledge to your advantage.
Sunlight is a powerful tool and a double-edged sword. Watch the sunlight icon and time of day closely to track its direction.
You play as Sorina Arobase, a human general made famous for killing vampires during the Third Sangian War.
Your objective is to climb to the 10th floor, assassinate Fane, and steal the Golden Krone. The 10th floor is protected by potent magic: only one wearing 4 magical rings, scattered throughout the hotel, can enter.
Vampires have superhuman strength, speed, and vision, but low intelligence. Thus, they can't cast magic, wield weapons, or read. Vampires are extremely vulnerable to sunlight.
You start the game as a human, but over time you'll transform into a vampire. This transformation cannot be prevented, but it can be reversed with a Soul Elixir.
Humans are slow and weak, but can cast powerful magicks. Humans regenerate health, but they also require food.
Climb to the 10th floor and assassinate Fane. Before you can reach the 10th floor, you must collect 4 magical rings. Each ring is held by a legendary creature who resides in one of the four "branches" of the hotel.
Pay attention to the map! It has tons of useful information including the location of items and staircases.
Certain enemy attacks may cause you to become "poisoned." While poisoned, you'll be unable to restore health through mundane means including regeneration, health potions, and blood.
Cast magic by selecting a spell (1-3) and choosing a direction with arrow keys. Magic makes you hungrier, so be careful!
In this game, you'll fight against and even transform into both vampires and humans. You'll automatically transform into a vampire, but you can speed the process up by drinking blood. You can reverse the transformation by drinking a Soul Elixir.
