Elvira: The Arcade Game is a platform side-scrolling video game released in 1991 for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and PC by Flair Software. The game is based upon the film Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, released in 1988, and she features as the playable character. Despite its name, the game was not based on an arcade game nor ever released in arcades.
The game features two worlds: the Underworld of Fire and the Arctic Earth, which must be unlocked in order to reach the third, the Castle of Transylvania. According to the ghost in the game's introduction, by right the castle belongs to Elvira. In their quest, players are able to use spells and weapons, as well as collect rune stones, food in order to replenish their health, and treasure chests. If they encounter difficulty in completing a segment of their current quest, the player may purchase information from a trader, found within each level, using rune stones as a currency.
