Dracula: The Path of the Dragon – Part 3 review

Finally we can see the end of the adventure we embarked on about three months ago. In the third part in the Path of the Dragon trilogy we finally get to see some proper blood, and even an encounter with a vampire lord.

If you have been following the first two parts of the trilogy you most certainly know the gameplay mechanics by now. You walk around, and interact with red circles and red arrows. For the third part you also get a couple of occasions where you don’t have any visual cues, but have to work your way around using common knowledge. The touch controls are responsive, and it is quite easy to get the game to do what you want. There is not much to do though, and I really miss out on there being no way to combine items in your inventory.

img_5024The puzzles in the third part are generally harder than those found in the earlier parts. This is mainly due to a lot of content being left out of the game from the PC version. This means that some puzzles come with no build up, and you basically have no information to solve them with. Going through your inventory and documents the puzzles are solvable, but it turns into a dead slow pace. I would rather have had the entire game with all the puzzles, or even completely new puzzles instead of the odd hard puzzle that feels a bit out of context. Some parts of the story also feel slightly off as puzzles and content are missing.

img_0081If you have played, and enjoyed the first two parts you should definitely get this as well to find out what happens. The third part takes about an hour to complete, and that clocks the entire trilogy to around three hours. For me it is barely worth getting the complete game for $5 as there is little to no reason to replay it. Furthermore there is a lot of reused material for the three parts. To save bandwidth I hope that a complete game is released at a discounted price to make it worthwhile. If you haven’t embarked on the journey yet I don’t see a reason to get three different titles at a total of 1.2 GB instead of one at about 700 MB.

    Hi!
    Sorry for not being able to help… I’m stuck in the inn: I have a box of drawing-pins but I don’t know how to extract one to disable the mecanism which makes the whole place blow away… Could you help me with that?

    Thanks.

  • inox

    you have only to pinch one drawing-pin in the door and then you use the knife , after that you get in the room and you detach the bomb on the door; anyone has a soluce with the skulls ?

  • Angie

    Tears to tears
    sweat to sweat
    blood to blood
    what do I do and how!?????

  • Angie

    To do the skulls you need to use the syringe on the three skulls, one on the top left bottom an top center… I can’t remember how they look.

  • Torbjorn Kamblad, Sweden

    @Angie

    You have to connect the white to white, red to red, and brownish to brownish. It can be done, but it took me some trial and error.

  • Tony, DK

    can someone help with a better description of what to do at the scull part?

  • amber

  • Steven

    How can i Escape from the laboratory after i complete the analisys on my blood ? The door closed and i’m stuck in the room . Can’t get out .

  • Nick

    use the acid on the door edges

  • Mia

    @Angie Try to connect the sweat to sweat by going right to left three rows down so it looks like a C facing up. Blood to blood do the same only left to right three rows up to form a C facing down. Now try snaking the tears to tears threw the C’s by starting at the top and working down.

    @Tony Use your syringe on 3 skulls (Upper left with hat and scarf on it, ,bottom middle skull and skull with little hat middle right in no particular order)
