[Found: Vampire's Empire] Platformer, old man in a haunted mansion?

Grasping at straws here, this has been bugging me for years. Well, decades pretty much.

The game was a platformer where the protagonist was an old man, maybe. He moves around in a multi-story mansion/dungeon and there are some women/succubi/ghosts in upright caskets that have a gravitational field ie. you are pulled towards them if you get too close. That's pretty much all I can remember.

I'm guessing the game was at least before 1991 since I moved then.
Honestly, I don't even know if the game was on amiga (friend of a friend had this), but I think so. He also had giana sisters and the graphics were pretty good, better than C64 iirc so I think it's probable.

Thanks in advance!

Fright Night or Horror Zombies from the Crypt?

Thanks for the quick reply! Neither of those click though.

I think the view showed 2 or 3 stories at the same time onscreen and the transition between floors was by stairs, not ladders. Now that I think about it, there might have been some slip 'n slides or chutes as well that you could slide down.

I would have said similar to Cody

You could try looking through HOL at other games in the Horror / Supernatural theme.

That's it! Wow, thanks a lot! I can finally die in peace.

We did NOT know how to play that game way back when, and watching the longplay I'm not surprised..
