Description of Elvira: The Arcade Game
A so-so platform game based on the well-known mistress of the dark popularized by Horrorsoft's RPGs, Elvira: The Arcade Game offers several hours of entertaining dagger-shooting action that is over all too soon.
The game is plagued by repetitive level design-- there are only 2 worlds, fire and ice, and each level is not very different from the last. There are many weapons and power-ups Elvira can pick up, but the enemies she will go up against are quite crudely drawn and not very exciting. After you kill the hundredth bat or so, you'll wonder if Flair couldn't do better when they bought this blockbuster license.
The Amiga version, due to sharper graphics and better music, is probably better than this, although only marginally. In all, a disappointing use of the license that is not half as fun as Horrorsoft RPGs of the same name. If you are looking for a solid, horror-based platform game with appropriately creepy feel, play Castlevania instead.

It's mediocre but the graphics are nice, and It does have the host with the most. Not as fun as the first two Elvira games (Or three If you want to count Waxworks).
