Bowin and The Count Dracula is a beautiful platform game for the MGT Sam Coupe computers. The game was developed in 1992 by Lucosoft.
STORY / GAMEPLAY Bowin is a beautiful platform game for the Sam Coupe and a mix of Bubble Bobble and....Bomb Jack! Your mission is to collect all diamonds around the screen. Each screen is designed with a different configuration of platforms upon which your hero may run and jump. Eventually, the levels re-appear a number of times with increased difficulty. The enemies can be freed and then killed by collecting fruits found on each level.
GRAPHICS / SOUND The visual details and color palette are certainly pretty good and it is obvious that a great deal of care and attention has been taken for, although the detail lacks imagination. The sprites' animation is OK and it could have been better. The sound is fine, featuring in-game music along with a few typical sound effects.
