"Overall, Blood of the Werewolf is a great platformer. It provides a wonderful sense of atmosphere, the story is well written and well told, and the gameplay mechanics feel fantastic. You may destroy a keyboard or controller out of rage, but you’ll want to buy another to see this great game to the end. Fans of platformers, especially old-school platformers, should give this game a serious look."

"Scientifically Proven has managed to create a piece worthy of its platforming predecessors, where gore blends with horror creating an atmosphere that will captivate you." Dying too often gets frustrating at times, but not that much as to make you want to ditch the game. The beautiful visuals along with the multitude of monsters will keep you company while journeying in an adventure like never before."

If you love classic horror films like Dracula, Frankenstein, and Creature from the Black Lagoon, you'll certainly appreciate the references and style of Blood of the Werewolf!

While I do think the story was a bit uninteresting, the gameplay and controls are very smooth and I found the difficulty okay. Of course, there are those levels that may invoke hair-tearing frustration, but that is what makes platformer type games so satisfying to finally conquer right? I enjoy a good challenge and I thought this game had about the right amount of it.

In my opinion, the artwork and the presentation of levels are the best thing about this game as they give that classic horror film vibe I was talking about. But even if you're unfamiliar with that culture, it's a solid game definitely worth checking out!

I bought this game when it was on sale for 99 cents. For providing me with 5 hours of entertainment, i would say it definitely paid for itself. This is a simple no-stress pick-up-and-kill-some-time game that i'm glad i bought. Recommended for the right price.

If you like the genre, pick this game up for under 2 dollars, it’s worth it.

Blood of the Werewolf is a great side-scroll platformer. You play as the mother of the last werewolf, and will transform between human and werewolf form as needed throughout the game. As you try your best to track down your kidnapped child, you are confronted with all sorts of classic macabre cameos.

The game is full of difficult enemies and pitfalls; but you have an infinite number of lives and the game saves after every room... Yes... after every room. So even if you aren't patient enough to play through a difficult part of the game, you can load your save up at a later date and start exactly where you left off, with an infinite number of attempts to beat the game.

A controller helps A LOT! ...but I was able to clear most of the game without one. Like I mentioned earlier, you have an infinite number of attempts to get through each room.

The sound quality was good on my stereo, and the sound track/voice acting does help to bring you into the game. Although the story is a little dry, it was entertaining. I felt like I was playing a classic side-scroller with much nicer graphics and sound.

2D platformer in the style of classic Castlevania games. Difficult to the point of impossible at times, but with practice you can get through levels and boss fights. If you're not used to games challenging your skill and ability, and think games should just spoon feed you content just because you mashed buttons randomly, then move on, this game isn't for you.

Everyone who's not afraid of a challenge should buy this thing ASAP, and remember the times when all games were challenging like this.

It seems like a neat platformer. I really enjoyed the Wolf Sections of the game. The platforming is kind of difficult to do flawlessly with the way the enemies are lined up and with the projectiles they shoot so more often than not you have to take a hit to get passed certain obstacles and this may bother perfectionists.

I recommend it even though I only beat the first boss. I figured it would be more of the same increasing in difficulty with a few new moves and power ups thrown in to mix things up.

Oh also there was a bit of story between levels.

Amazing shapeshifting platformer that I keep coming back to. Tons of replay value with endless mode and the game in general feels very polished, and the form changing feel natural and satisfying. Little gem of a game!

Blood of the werewolf is a indie platformer game where you take control of Selena a werewolf mother trying to avenge the death of his beloved and rescue his lost son.
During the game at some sections you switch between human form wielding a crossbow , or wolf form with the ability to do double jumps and devastating claw attacks.
You can find upgrades for both human and wolf forms in secret areas somewhat hard to find, you can tell when you're near but you don't know how to get there.
Each level has a score system based on your performance and how many tokens you grabbed, obtaining an A+ is easy at first but frustrating as you advance levels, some of them require almost perfect timing while jumping from 1 hit death traps crushing you from everywhere, which makes the game ridiculous hard at times.
If youre into hardcore platform games this is just for you just 7$ or 2$ during a sale is all you need to start playing this game.

I really liked the game. I got it because werewolves. Other comments I read were saying its hard, and it kinda is. But I found that playing with a controller helped. It feels like cheating because its a pc game but its much more fun with it in my opinion.

This is an excellent platforming game and I bought it back when it was only €0.99 on the Steam sales. I thought it was a great game when I fist played it, but the difficulty to some of these levels leaves you exhausted and you don't really feel like coming back. The story isn't much to be remembered, but otherwise it's still a very good platforming game and I recommend you at least check out some Let's Play footage online before purchasing because it's marketed at a low price for obvious reasons. The difficulty of this game really makes or breaks it.

Just picked this up on a deal and I'm pleasantly surprised. It's a more than competent platformer with a gothic atmosphere I love. I hope there's a sequel in the works.

I just saw this game was getting mixed reviews and had to set something straight. This isnt the best platformer on steam but for the price it is a fantastic one. Levels are fun and the diffuculty scales well. The art design is fantastic and if you enjoy hunting for achievements this game will give you countless hours. In short if you like platformers pick it up and for the money you could do a lot worse

A game that starts off as a promising platformer with an interesting concept and art style. But after the first boss, it suddenly evolves into a rage-inducing chaos that throws instant-kill traps and bullet sponge bosses at you like nothing else. This combined with the platforming sequences, that often require flawless timing and nearly pixel perfect jumps, and the unfairly placed save points, will make even hardcore platforming veterans quit in frustration. And even if you manage to get through a level after dying twenty seven times on the exact same spot, the game never really feels rewarding when it cold-heartedly punishes you with a "C" ranking at the end of the level and throws even more stuff at you in the next one.

Can't beat it for $1. Endless mode is what I enjoyed the most. As other's have said, the normal mode quickly ramps up and becuae extremely difficult. Think old school mega man when you are falling and have to avoid the lazers shooting horizonatlly, or super meat boy etc.

I was pleasantly surprised by this game. The platforming is good and the levels are well designed and varied. The boss fights are fun, and probably the best part of the game. It is fun getting new powers, although the game hides most of them for some reason, and since they do a terrible job trying to help you with secrets, you won't find a power or two, and you will miss many upgrades, a mistake to hide away in almost impossible to find spots. The story isn't bad, and it's nice seeing all of the old classic monsters from literature. It is fun playing in two different forms, both of which act differently. Then there are the problems. People are right that aiming with selena is finnicky and annoying, especially since so many parts emphasize it. The two biggest problems are collision detection and damage reaction. The collision is terrible. I got hit many times by projectiles that were over me or past me. This is annoying when you have to fight as the wolf and you are standing next to a boss to hit him, as is your only way of damage, and you get hit for standing too close. Most games would just limit you from going forward, but here it lets you and you get hurt because its hard to find the spot close enough to damage but not get hit. The other problem as people mention is when you get hit you go flying back. This overreaction is annoying, unnecessary, and why you die basically every time. The game says you become invulnerable after being hit for a bit, but that's not actually true. You can get repeatedly hit and juggled, even in the air. If you get hit back and immediately jump forward you aren't invulnerable, you immediately get hit again. Getting juggled and auto killed when you can't do anything is annoying. It also makes it dumb because there will be a single platform you need to jump to a guy on there, so you can attack them by jumping toward them. The game seems to use this annoying area to place guys in spots where u repeatedly can't get past and keep getting kocked back or off. Also guys will throw things where you are going to jump to, which makes no sense. One other problem is sometimes checkpoints are scattered too far, and you have to do a bunch of hard precise parts in a row and you think "really guys.....". The game length is also quite good and I had fun almost the entire time. Both collision and the stupid damage response hamper this game and make it more frustrating than it should be and make parts annoying and inclined to continually repeat. People spoke of difficulty but I thought it was tough but no stupid or unfair, like a Super Meat Boy. Pick this game up, excited if there's a sequel. 7.5/10.
