Set to the increasing tempo of Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”, more and more critters start coming out of the woodwork (even parachuting from above at the finale).
But not every critter is a bloodsucker – you need to properly identify them as true bloodsuckers or imposters in order to stop them. Get it right and the critter disappears in a poof of smoke. Get it wrong and the march continues (and your score goes down).
If Gary gets bitten 3 times, he can’t take it anymore and runs out. Make it through the night and you will send the critters packing.
Gameplay is randomized so that every game is unique.
