SubjectReally old Mac game new Reply to this message

Hello. I'm looking for the name of a really old mac game that I played in Elementary school, around 17 years ago. It came on 5.25" floppies that you had to change during the game. It was within the same time frame as that turtle that drew on the screen. :) Anyway, it was a first-person adventure/RPG that took place mostly outside. I'm kinda foggy on the details, but I know there was a werewolf that was lurking in the woods, and there was one particular screen that had a statue in the middle of a person, but I believe there was no head on it. It may have had something to do with vampires as well, as you had to collect special holy water and things like that. I know it's a really long shot, but if you have any ideas, let me know. Thanks.

The game is Transylvania 1, by Penguin Software/Polarware.

Was available for several platforms.

You must have played the Apple ][ version if it was on 5.25" disks :-)

But you can get the Mac version from http://users.bigpond.com/james.jacobs/
