At last a decent licence and a half-decent game. Count Duckula is a mildly amusing cartoon along the same lines as Danger Mouse (who's got a couple of computer games of his own), and its central character is a vampire duck. He's a 'nice' vampire, naturally, and your job is to help him, erm, walk round collecting things. Sob. But that's what we're stuck with, so let's make the most of it, eh? It's just about the best budget licence around actually, with attractive graphics, plenty of rooms to explore, lots of mapping potential and a particularly odd cheat mode. But original it's not.
