The Sega Mega Drive version of Bram Stoker's Dracula is a platformer by Traveller's Tales and Psygnosis released in 1993.

Gameplay

The game is a platformer. A swings your sword, B jumps, and C fires your special weapon, if you have picked one.

The gameplay, graphics style, physics engine etc. hint that the game reuses code from Traveller's Tales's other games, namely The Legend of Galahad.
