Any tiz old tymers remember this game.

This has been an annoyance to me for many years, back in about 79-81 we used to holiday in blackpool for a week in the summer, i got addicted to a particular video game that i've never been able to track down.
You were a vampire hunter in it and you threw cross's at enemies like bat's and ghouls/zombies, it was very basic, monochrome and top down and i can recall the cross's returning to you in a squarish type arc.
The cab next to it in the arcade was sega's depth charge so that'll give you an idea of the era i'm on about lol.....any ideas anyone ???.

I think I've played a game that sounds like the one you describe, but for the life of me I can't remember what it is.
I'd suggest cranking up MAME with a full romset, filtering by year, and booting up any likely candidates. If you (or anyone else) doesn't beat me to it I'll do it myself when I get home.

edit
After a quick glance through that link mrpink posted for the arcade museum, the only game that stands out as a possibility (for 1979) is Kreepy Krawlers by Exidy.

Thanks for the suggestions guy's, it's defo not Kreepy Krawlers i'm afraid and you wouldn't believe how many times i've trawled through mame going from 1978 up to 80 and i've never found it, though i admit i've never played through every game from those years.
