I know there are mixed reviews on this game, but I am here to tell you now that it is DEFINITELY WORTH the mere $2 Steam charges for this game. I promised myself during the Summer Sale that I would gift this to anyone who said they liked challenging platformers. Although there is no sale, that did not deter me. 3 friends gifted and counting!
Do you love challenging levels that require twitch reflexes, smart platforming, exploration, intelligent use of skills, and a sense of accomplishment once you mastered a level? Look no further friends.
Blood of the Warewolf is a game I had gotten through a bundle a in 2014 but never got around to playing it until a few months ago on a whim. At first it was an alright game that has you completing levels both as a human woman and as a warewolf, both who control differently and each have "a particular set of skills." Oh yes, there's more to that reference than you care to know!
You play as Selena, a warewolf who is hell bent on revenge when your husband is murdered and your child is kidnapped. Oh yes, she will find those responsible, and she will kill them. Your foes? Classic monsters such as Dracula, The Mummy, among others.
As mentioned before the platforming is amazing, no matter what form you are in. Levels are arranged so intellegently and challengingly that whenever you die, it's because YOU made a mistake, not because the level was being unfair. The things these devs created to kill you as the game gets harder is just amazing.
Sadly, the only gripe I have with the game are in fact the bosses. That sense of accomplishment, the skill, the sigh of relief once you make it to a check point, the high you feel once you make it to the end...none of that is present during and after a boss battle. These are easy and kinda kill the moment of the game. However, there is more platforming that boss battles, and in a sense it's good that bosses come and go fairly easy so you can get back to the fun parts of the game.
Now I've only gone through the main game once and have not tried any other game modes or difficulty, so this review is only based on one play through on normal, just like any person would do when playing for the first time. Based on this, I can definitely recommend Blood of the Warewolf with great excitement. The main game alone is worth the amazingly low price of $2. Don't wait on a sale. Buy it. It's amazing. Now to gift this some more....
