joyeTransylvaniaTransylvania is without a doubt the best point-and-click game about a sleepwalking potato who accidentally drives his car into the depths of hell that I have ever played. The bar has definitely been raised for that particular niche. But be warned: the dangers in this place aren't just of being scared, nor even of being trapped there forever. No, you can expect to die many, many times on your quest to escape back to Miss Potato, often in extremely unfair (but hilarious!) ways.

In each level, you'll be presented with a scene involving at least one obstacle preventing Mr Potato from leaving, from a simple closed gate to an elaborate bomb. Use your mouse to try clicking on various areas of the screen and interact with them. Clicking on the gate to open it will be pretty easy, but you'll have to have sharp eyes, quick wits, and a little luck to make the right choice when it comes to escaping a murderous tree or a piano playing demon. If... well, let's be realistic, when you die, you can click to try again from the beginning of that level, and levels are all quite short, so you never lose much progress. There is no pause button, but the game can be muted in the upper right.

The game is reminiscent in many ways of early silent films, especially in the grainy opening cut-scene. Mr Potato's jaunty hat and old-fashioned car seem to set him up as a hapless Chaplin type. But I don't think that those silent films featured their protagonists getting smashed by spikes, swallowed whole, or crushed by boulders. While the scene generally cuts away just before showing the actual carnage, this is not one for the kids. For gamers who enjoy a little macabre whimsy, however, this is perfect.

Fun little game :) Most of the levels were very simple, but some of them took process of elimination or plain good luck to get right the first time.

But from that time on, poor Mr. Potato, not having a car, had to take mass transit whenever he had to go anywhere. And then he began to look back on his time in the underworld with great fondness...

That was a cute game :)

This game was so much fun and so full of atmosphere. Reminded me of Nightmare Before Christmas for some reason.

Still, never have I felt so much sympathy for such a hapless potato...I really wanted him to have a happy ending...

Cute game. My only complaint is that some levels I could beat only with blind guesses. For example

the level with the three doors. How was I supposed to know which one to click? Was there some sort of hint that I missed?

Other than that, it was a really good game.


Sign of an enjoyable game: When losing not only isn't frustrating, but is actually amusing.

The first example I can recall was the old 2600 game, Circus Atari. I had a difficult time getting the trapeze artists up into the bricks to play it properly, but i could entertain myself for hours watching them go SPLAT on the floor.

This game entertains me in much the same way, just with the addition of that little burp.

Silly but adorably cute.
Another proof that the idea and story is more important than the graphics.


That was fun! :)


Loved the music. ditto, littlefish, story and idea were delightful. Absolutely loved the graphics and way this played. More please!
