I loved it, it had not enough recognition, in my humble opinion :D

It's pretty good once you learn how to control your character and how to use his transformations.
Also, it's got nice details, like the women pointing their crucifix at you, or the way you suck the blood of the people until they wither and become just bones falling to the ground.

Yeah, that’s something I struggled with. How do I use the keys on doors? Also, I can’t seem to be able to land on the second floor as a vampire. I can fly up there as a bat, and then, once I transform, I fall through to the first floor. Bummer.

That's because this vampire was distracted when they teached how to land on the second floors, at the bat flying course. I tried again and again too, but you just can't. The old stair-climbing method is the only way.
So, how do you get past the trapdoors on the second floors? With the other available transformation.
As for opening the doors, it's just up+fire, IIRC. Of course, you need the right key.

Thanks. Will give it another go. Just need to sharpen my teeth first.

The Last Vampyre seems a cool game. I didn't know it.

There are lots of hidden gems in those Shaw Bros. games made in late 80s/beginning 90s: Cerius, Heartbroken, ...
