Weems, a failed accountant turned lion-tamer, found circus life too
dull. So he decided on a career as a vampire hunter. Now he faces his
Armed only with a rapid-fire garlic gun and a single smart-garlic
pill, he has forced his way into the Mansion of the She Vampires.
Weems must blaze his way through the six lethal levels of the
labyrinthine Mansion. Attacked on all sides by sharp-fanged bats,
dim-witted Frankenstein monsters and hungry She Vampires, Weems has to
pick up a vital weapon on each level. Occasional bottles of blood to
supplement his fast failing blood count and a few garlic bombs strewn
around may just help Weems survive but the ultimate horror still lies
On the final level of the Mansion lurks the Great She Vampire
herself. Weems will only be able to destroy her if he has collected
all the weapons he needs on the battle-torn way to her lair. Then he
must fight his way out of the Mansion. Weems has just one small
problem... Staying alive!
Weems has to battle through six labyrinthine levels of assorted ghouls
to reach the Great She Vampire in her penthouse lair. If he's picked
up the vital secret weapon on each of the previous levels, he'll be
able to destroy her. If not, it's curtains for Weems!
Each level has its own layout of corridors and rooms littered with
coffins and alive with bloodsucking nasties. Watch out for hidden
doors in the walls and magic transporter blocks in the floors. Weems'
garlic gun fires such tiny particles of garlic that his ammo is more
or less limitless. He can also pick up keys (for any locked doors),
refreshing bottles of blood to raise his flagging blood count and the
few garlic bombs scattered about the place.
Garlic bombs clear the screen of nasties. Weems can also swallow his
single smart-garlic pill at any time to give himself short-time
immunity to the bloodsuckers. This can be handy either early in the
game to give you a chance to get used to the gameplay, or later when
the going gets really though!
Once the bloodsuckers have been wiped out from screen, you can blast
coffins. This helps to keep the area clear because bats, in
particular, gather around them. She Vampires are even harder to kill
and they're smart!
The objects you need to find to kill the Great She Vampire are in
boxes, one on each level. The five are: a stake, a mallet, a piece of
mega-garlic, a mirror and a crucifix.
If Weems kills the Great She Vampire, he'll need to get out of the
Mansion fast. The enraged nasties on all levels don't take kindly to
having their boss knocked off, so Weems can expect a rough time!
