Free App Review: Vampires Live

vampires live

I’ve mentioned that I bought an iTouch in recent posts, but why should any of you readers care unless I write about it? And so, today I’d like to debut a new series I like to call “Free App Spotlight”. There’s no point in reviewing free iTouch/iPhone apps, because if people are even mildly interested in one, they’ll download it real quick and see if they like it. Paid apps, on the other hand, are something people might want to read an review on before laying down a dollar or two to buy it, so I’ll make sure some paid apps get reviewed on this site.

With that, let me tell you about this surprisingly fun game available for free on the App Store. Vampires Live is one of developer Storm8’s many rehashes of a singular game formula, but Vampires Live is the first one I played, so why not talk about that one? It could be classified as an MMO, though there are no worlds to explore and all actions take place by pushing a button and the game telling you the outcome. Even so, managing your vampire clan is addictive enough to keep people coming back to the game several times a day.

After a short tutorial at the beginning, the extremely light story is set up and you learn about all the different things you can do in Vampires Live. Being an MMO, most people will be drawn to attacking the vampire clans of real people all over the world and gaining experience and blood (the game’s currency) through battle victories, but managing the abilities of your clan (basically, the types of attacks/defenses everyone uses) is important if you want to win any fights. Missions, such as “Drain a Human” or “Terrorize a Park”, are all done with the push of a button and drain energy, which can only recharge over time. Similarly, health and “frenzy”, the thing that allows you to attack other players, must be recharged. As a result, you can’t really play this game for a couple hours straight – it’s really more of a “few minutes here, few minutes there” type of thing, and that’s just fine. However, if you care about your character, you’re going to want to play often, as players can attack you and steal all your blood even when your device is off.

In terms of graphics, there’s mostly just text and some icons that represent abilities and the like. The sound is minimal and is only heard after completing a few specific missions or after a battle. The real star here is the simple but surprisingly addictive gameplay. Give it a look, and if you like it, add me to your clan: JTMQW5.

Final Score: 45stars

      ummm…. actually, no… we do not cheat! LOLz u got it all wrong. See, you have to BUY slaves with the income blood you get. And if you keep buying more and more slaves your income will get higher and if your income goes up higher well…. u can buy a lot of slaves. =)

    I don’t think they’re cheating… it’s just with a couple of slaves it’s very easy to make a huge amount of blood after a day or so, and then you use that blood to get more slaves… and the cycle keeps going.

    Wow, this comment would sound weird out of context.

      you have to buy slaves. see, if u hve more blood income with the abilities u bought than the income u have with your slaves, then the slaves need to be higher.

    If more slaves can not stop the negative blood flow, unlearn the abilities with an upkeep, and do not relearn them until you have acquired enough slaves to match their upkeep costs.

    I play vampires, i am level 44 and my bloodfpow is 100 million per 50mins, i got this by keepin. On buying slaves, just save up and buy as much as you can.

    ya, if you just sit and buy slaves for the first few weeks and just do attacks on weaker players, you end up gaining lots of blood and buying lots of slaves, im level 16 right now with 250k every 50 min and it just keeps coming in faster as i buy bigger blood slaves.

    as far as cheats go, i havent seen any and dont think there are any
    just the people that have lots of stuff at low levels restarted their character and just let it idle and buy slaves.

    How do you get deaths and kills by fighting others? I see that some people have like 100 kills.

    You get kills by attacking people in the hit list – as far as I can remember (it’s been a while since I played this) that’s the only way to.

    well there is a bypass to max the slaves. you can buy it with real money, i think this is a cheesy way but i guess there are people out there who consider themselves as being this way, haha!

    • February 15, 2010 at 2:33 pm

      I don’t think any of these sorts of games are worth spending real money on.

    How do you get out of negative blood flow? I don’t even know it happened.
