Tales of Terror 3: Bark At The Moon!, January 3, 2021
by End Master (The Outer Reaches Of Your Mind)
The third entry in this series is Wolfman. Once again this game has been divided into three parts. Parts one and three deal with you playing as the man infected with lycanthropy. Fighting the curse and eventually finding the cure. The second involves playing as a woman that falls in love with him.

First, I’ll say that out of the three games involving the classic monsters, I found this one to be the best one. It did come out after the other two, so again there is more polish all around, but I just liked playing as the protagonists better. It might have been because unlike Dracula or Frankenstein, there isn’t a proper “werewolf novel” to draw off of and it had to be a little more creative just using the traditional folklore.

This one also has the infamous bloody pictures from time to time that the box warned everyone about. These seem a bit more gruesome in that they’re in the beginning stages of approaching one of the Elvria games (Most notably Personal Nightmare). Still, nothing to shriek in terror about.

The second part of the game is probably the most unusual mainly because the female protagonist’s motivations since it seems a little silly. She takes home some stranger who’s already a bit suspicious and her goal is to spend a night with him without getting ripped apart, but also fall in love (and bed) with him. Oh wait, that’s the plot of 90% of today’s urban horror romance novels. Inserting a romantic angle wasn’t very common in IFs at the time either, now they’re over saturated with the stuff.

Never mind, this game was obviously ahead of its time!

Still, as I said, this one feels a lot more engaging as it dipped into multiple genres, a bit of mystery, drama, the already mentioned romance, and even some action as you even fight another monster in werewolf form and deal with hunters chasing you.

Third time was definitely the charm.
