Night hunted

Night Hunter is a funny old game - literally as well as figuratively. You play a vampire who must wander the levels looking for...stuff...in order to do...stuff. Look, I couldn't really work it out, okay. I picked up various items like keys and upside-down crosses, but I couldn't work out how to use any of them. I presume the keys are what let me open certain doors (although that in itself is a process of immense trial and error). While you're searching the levels, you're constantly being attacked by wandering villagers and creatures (I don't know what witches have against vampires, but they delight in zooming past on their broomsticks and bashing into you). If you get close enough to another creature then you can grab hold of it and suck its blood, filling up a little more of your life meter. You can also change form into either a wolf or a bat by pressing diagonally down and hitting fire (Q). The bat can be used to fly quickly across the level avoiding enemies and obstacles, but it doesn't last for long. The wolf is used for...something? I couldn't work out what the wolf was good for. The biggest issue was that I couldn't work out how to proceed. I found a few things, but they didn't seem to be enough to enable me to open up the other doors on the level and search inside them. It was interesting wandering about for a bit, but I can't get anywhere and it's not worth carrying on with it.

Next up on the randometer is...Stratego! Yes, the board game adaptation. I don't think I've ever played the board game.

Slight panic there, as I lost the entire collection database, but it seems to be back and working now!
