"This game propelled me back to those halcyon days when I started gaming, and games were extremely difficult yet ultimately all the more rewarding."

"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."

Blood of the Werewolf is a game where you control a female werewolf called Selena. Her husband was brutally murdered and her son Nickolai was kidnapped by someone. Your mission is to guide Selena through the stages to get clues where her son is being held.

During the stages you can collect Sigils that will increase your HP and also upgrades, that increase ammunition and power of the attacks. When you are in a closed place, you control Selena in her human form with a crossbow. If you are in a place where the full moon is visible, you control her in her werewolf form. The game is a platformer with a lot of obstacles to overcome. Only people with perseverance and good reflexes will finish this game, since a lot of players give up on the end of the second level. If you finish the second level... good work, time to complete the other 8 levels and 5 bosses :)

The game is considered hard in its core... but the main game isn't hard at all (ok.. maybe a little bit). If you want a real challenge... try beating every stage with an S rank, what means that you have to finish the level as fast as possible. You can try to reach a huge amount of points in Score Rush mode as well... where you have a multiplier that goes up by 1 every 100 points (yellow gem), by 5 every 500 points (enemy killed) or by 10 every 1000 points (blue gem). But be careful, Rush Score has a time limit to complete the level but you can increase by reaching one of the various thresholds of points. If you manage to get everything, try beating at least 100 rooms in Endless mode. This will be your last test to see how good you are at the game.

If you are an achievement hunter, be warned that getting 100% in this game isn't easy task, but with training and determination, you can get them all.

Want a challenge? if so, play Blood of the Werewolf!

At first I was "hey this game is pretty cool. A little basic looking but not bad." That was until I started getting frustrated with the crappy controls and the horrible level layouts.

You have a level with multiple spinning flames and one reaches out of the map and you have to dodge that one while dodging the others that all seem to line up exactly when you need to jump through them. You're probably thinking that's not so bad but then on top of that you have an enemy throwing poison at you in the exact spot you need to jump. Oh and this is all on a treadmill going the opposite direction you are.

Everytime you get hit you fly backwards like 3ft which puts you either into some other crap you just dodged through or into some type of liquid that harms you. Oh and all liquid harms you.

This seemed like it could of had a good story but after the frustration I went through so far it's just not worth seeing to the end in my opinion. Sorry just can't recommend this one.

Blood of the Werewolf feels a little schizophrenic, or at least, aiming for gameplay that its mechanics can't support IMO.

It has levels and stats meant to encourage speed running and trying to 100% clear a level with the quickest time, but with the stiff controls between either human or werewolf form, you do not feel encouraged to do that because you cannot perform at your best.

The werewolf form in particular, has a very awkward hitbox for both platforming and its attacks. The problem is the same assets being used in level construction for either a 'Serena' level or a werewolf level. The spacing and size of each platform gives adequate space for Serena's human form, but not for the werewolf form, leaving you overhanging or clipping into walls and platforms constantly. What's more, the animation for the attacks, particular the focus attack, makes it look huge, but really only makes contact at the edge of the visual.

There is also a lot of 'cheap' and gamey design choices, very early-on in the first level even, that were added to give the levels more spice but comes off as cheap annoyances. The 'bats' are the Medusa-heads from Castlevania, except they appear right in the first level. In an outdoor werewolf level, you get 'birds' instead. There's a big dissonance here, because you are BIG as a werewolf, but these teeny sparrows, not even hawks, can push you out of a jump animation constantly. These aren't monster birds, thematically, there's no reason they should be there, but the devs needed to add challenge and some obstacle that wasn't a mob or the level design itself.

Speaking on theme, I know what they're going for here, an old-school monster movie theme, from the Hammer movie heydays, but somehow it's just not coming across all that well. The title crawl comes out in black-and-white, then lumps you into a technicolor saturated level. None of the monster designs I saw invokes the Hammer movie days, but it could be they would improve further on. As it is though, I do not enjoy the gameplay enough to encourage me to continue playing this.

That said, it's $2.50. At that price-point, it's one of the best on Steam. But with the stiff controls (especially after having played both Guacamelee and Rogue Legacy, both with controllers) and incoherent theme, I just don't feel motivated to complete the game at all.

Lately, I had been feeling like my relationship with Selena was one-sided. She was incredibly controlling and demanding. I just had no idea why every little thing had to be perfect or what right she had to be so judgey (I mean she wasn’t the best looking thing around and she was a bit of a bore). As demanding as she was, she was also really unresponsive. Being around her felt like a chore. It’s not like I didn’t like a challenge, I just want to feel rewarded too. Yeah, it was great that she liked old Castlevania games (pre- Symphony of the Night) and horror movies, but she really seemed to lack a personality of her own.

I think one of her big problems is she spreads herself too thin all the time. It’s like she wants to be an acrobat and a boxer, but she doesn’t do either particularly well. I mean, I don’t think she would be a terrible at jumping around or fighting people, I just think she needs to focus on being great at one thing at a time. She also doesn’t know how to tell a story really, she lacks focus and doesn’t know how to make it engaging. Between you and me, almost every time she started to tell me a story about something, I felt pressed to act interested and I often forgot everything she told me the second I looked away.

She had these little habits that irked me. She would try to cook up “new” things to try to spice up our relationship but the problem was she never actually came up with anything refreshing. Selena just didn’t know when to stop either: whether we were talking or just trying to spend time together, she would just drag things on and on and being around her just felt repetitive. I managed to feel both bored and frustrated with our relationship pretty quickly. I felt like I was caught in a routine: fighting all the time over little things, feeling rushed around everywhere, jumping through hoops, and it was exhausting. I felt like I couldn’t win with her, and even when I did I still felt like I was losing in a larger sense.

It’s a shame. I think we had some things in common, I mean she seems like my type, but I think in the end I couldn’t keep pretending that I liked being around her. She’s not awful, she is just average with flaws that I can’t handle. Life’s too short to spend time with someone you can’t enjoy being around, and that’s why I had to leave her.

Also she got me a copy of Blood of the Werewolf. I am not going to put up with that ♥♥♥♥.

A difficult platformer that begins to skirt the level of I Wanna Be The Guy and Super Meat Boy (albiet the lower end of those for sure) at its more difficult parts. The game gives you a life bar, but later levels require perfect precision and constant movement otheriwse you fall into one of the many instant death traps, so at that point you may as well not have a life bar. The game has its fair share of "dodge these three things perfectly, jumping out of them and simultaneously bringing an enemy on screen that throws a grenade perfectly into your jump arc", (as well a sCastlevania medua heads, though it's birds here) almost enough to make you want to bail on the game. The levels are fairly bitesize - about 20 minutes, and that was with me dying a strenuous amount of times and getting the lowest rank the game offers. If you're good at the game (I'm not) the levels are much swifter.

The game offers a story mode, a score rush mode, and a randomly generated Endless Mode, for plenty of high score getting and speedrunning fun. Not something that I'd want to grind on, at least not for this game specifically. Sprinkled through levels are also upgrades for the character in both human and werewolf form, as well as a vast number of Sigils to collect that raise your maximum health.

Several reviews complain about the controls being stiff, but I never experienced that at all. (I read there was a 2.0 patch - I never played the "old version" of the game, so it's possible they were worse, but now they're very responsive.) The game is incredibly responsive in its movements, giving you perfect control over character momentum, on ground and in mid air, even when double jumping in werewolf form.

As I type this, the game is $1.99. I f you enjoy platformers and can handle the occasional amount of rage some of the more frustrating level design is going to give up (or just enjoy that sort of thing), the game is an absolute steal, especially if you intend to do the score attack stuff or try to get B/A/S ranks on all the stages.
