Dare you enter Hammer's Vampire Terrortory?
Britannia Games has followed up the success of their Forbidden Terrortory board game with a new interactive dvd game, designed to appeal to fans of the iconic Hammer brand.
Vampire Terrortory allows fans to assist Professor Van Helsing in his absence on the quest to find Dracula. Time is against you as you travel through the game collecting your protection and navigating your way through Vampire Terrortory in search of Dracula - but beware, your knowledge of all things Hammer will be severely tested throughout the game so listen carefully to Hammer Legend Ingrid Pitt as she narrates you through the hazards.
The game contains clips of all the famous Hammer vampire classics, and according to Britannia Games Sales Director Raph Patmore the new game is more sophisticated than Forbidden Terrortory, “The game play is more complex; you have to answer two out of three questions to progress through the various stages. I tried it and it took me about two days to complete.”
Vampire Terrortory draws heavily on Hammer Horror’s vampire lore but Patmore says it is an ideal game for any movie fan.
Comments Patmore: “A working knowledge of the Hammer films will give you a good start, but the great thing about the game is that you learn about Hammer films as you go along so movie buffs should love it.”
Vampire Terrortory was launched in December and is produced under license from Coolabi. It carries an 18 certificate from the BBFC.
It can be purchased from high-street and online retailers, and through the official Hammer Films Shop
