WELCOME to Transylvania. The dubious delights of the vampire's tower await you in 3D Bat Attack, by Cheetahsoft.

The tower is built in four levels, each connected to the others by a lift. Play begins on the lowest level and the foolhardy explorer must collect the gold blocks on the passage floors. Heads of garlic are also scattered round the place and must be eaten to provide some protection against the four vampire bats which squeak about the maze seeking a quick snack of your Type O.

A map and radar are provided to show the position of both adventurer and bats, and there are ten levels of difficulty available.

The keyboard movement takes a Little getting used to as the cursor keys are doubled up - using Capshift - to enable the player to rotate as well as move. The rotate facility can be confusing but the map shows the whole floor, including the location of the garlic. The graphics are competent and clear and there are comprehensive instructions.
