The storyline is simple and straight-forward: kill Emelda to save Elvira
and the world from evil. The gameplay is good and easy. Maybe you can have problems
figuring out how to mix spells, but that's no big deal... just
drag the ingredients to the left side of the book! The fighting system is a
little too mechanical, and it might seem that there is no difference between
clicking on the buttons for the attacks or clicking on the actual character...
Well, there are differences! The main one is the fact that it is possible
to fool the game by finding a spot where it is hard for the enemy to parry
and the fight will be won!
The music is another good point for the game: Elvira: Mistress of the Dark
features a different track for every new area in the game: pretty impressive,
for 1990. Can't get enough of this game! The sound effects are really
well done, monsters and enemies scream, wolves howl, hawks shriek, etc.
A really good effort.
