Default I want to PUMP your Blood! Let's Play Drac' Night Out



Wait! Whaaaat? Why is Dracula wearing Reebok Pumps? And what exactly is going on here?

I don't think I rightly know. The 90s were weird. It seems the idea was Reebok's, they wanted a video game featuring their new, also very 90s, shoe the Pump. They approached Parker Brothers and Parker Brothers approached Microsmiths. Who were already making a Dracula game it seems and took that sweet, sweet, advertising money and just inserted the Reebok Pump into their game.

The game was originally slated for 1991 but never came out. I really can't imagine why.

Despite never being released the game is complete and can be played from beginning to end. And is relatively easy to get your hands on the ROM.

Why does that "teenage" Dracula look a lot like a cartoon version of Grandpa Munster in a tracksuit?

He's 13-19 years into being a Dracula, but he was only Drac'd when he was Al Lewis' age.

Interestingly, it seems to be B2B advertisement. I guess that makes as much sense as anything for a game that never hit shelves.

That makes complete sense. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
