Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon is a 2008 horror adventure video game based on the characters from Bram Stoker's Dracula. It was developed for PC by Kheops Studio and published by Microïds. In 2010 an adapted version was released for Apple iPhone.
Dracula 3, graphics wise is a first person adventure puzzle game. It breaks off from the traditional point and click adventures by introducing a movement system instead of still screen to still screen. The player may interact with characters, objects, even animals.
Halloween 2008 Edit
For Halloween 2008, Microïds ran a stencil-based pumpkin carving competition. Also for Halloween 2008, The American Red Cross held a Dracula themed Blood Drive at five locations in Northern California, USA, where each donor was given a copy of the game, donated by Encore.

On 21 January 2010, an adaptation of the first of three parts of the game was released for the Apple iPhone. The iPhone version was developed by Tetraedge and published by Chillingo. The second soon followed, and on 17 May, the third part was released to the App Store.
