be Van Helsing. Also, your background will be bluish when you
are a werewolf and normal when you are not. Note: Dracula remains
normal until attacked -- you will be okay until you turn werewolf.

When you get to the part where you have to fight the
three Vampires, take out the one on the left first. When the center
Vampire is going to attack, she will make a screeching type of
sound. When she does that, get ready to dodge her attack. When
she uses her lightning attack, hide behind the pillar. When you
take out the Vampire on the left, the center Vampire will transform.
The transformed Vampire will land on the ground and remains still.
Back away and do not get hit when she dives after you. If you
follow this and attack at the correct times, you should be able
to defeat them.
Hint: Mission 4 Easter Egg pedestal:
To find the mission four Easter Egg pedestal, jump
under the second bridge on mission 3.
Hint: Mission 5 Easter Egg puzzle:

complete this mini-game.
