You control Elvira, a famous witch, in order to regain your family medieval castle in Transylvania. All you have to do is conquer three very hostile environments and sharing your assets. Elvira can choose which world she begins her quest in by selecting the appropriate globe. The choice is made between the Arctic Earth and the Fiery underworld, and only when she's conquered the two she progress into the Transylvania World and finally challenge for the ownership of the castle.
The game is a typical multi-directional arcade adventure, fighting with hoards of evil nasties using (initially) your deadly daggers, but this can be soon improved upon by collecting more of the same. Although there are a few other more advanced weapons to collect (such as throwing stars), the most important factor is enhance your magic spells. For that reason, there are various objects around to manipulate and activate a number of useful magic spells. Also, occasionally you accept the help of the ancient Trader who offers advice for magic spells too. Oh I almost forgot; make sure you avoid any water pit in the Frozen World or lava pits in the Fire World, as both will decrease your precious health fast!
Gameplay is rather difficult sometimes, as you get beasties leaping out at you from nowhere and it can be a little frustrating. But fortunately you get nine lives to play around with...
Graphics are pretty nice when running in either EGA or VGA mode. The last uses identical 64-colored palette as in the original (Amiga) but looks inferior as there several extra backdrops for the PC version! Note that both PC graphics modes suffer from low frame-rate (same as in the ST version) which makes the gameplay frustrating at times (Amiga version runs a bit smoother, but still has problems). The two different worlds (Fire and Frozen Worlds) are nicely presented having several animated backdrops here and there. Watching details such as, snowing effects in the Frozen Worlds is quite impressive. Elvira herself is very well animated while there is a degree of perspective at the backdrops.
Sound is average here although the game supports AdLib/ Soundblaster compatible sound hardware. Both share a sort Gothic-style tune at the main menu while there are some sound FX during gameplay but no music.
