Blood of the Werewolf Review

Did you know, that there is no female equivalent of “werewolf”? We have mermen and mermaids, vampires and vampiresses, warlocks and witches but no feminine werewolf noun. I have thought about this for far too long and I propose they should be called “were♥♥♥♥♥es”, because it sounds totally badass. Right. Glad that’s sorted.

Blood of the Werewolf is a 2D action platformer from indie developer Scientifically Proven, part Castlevania and part Super Meat Boy, smothered by an overly dramatic narrative that attempts to pay homage to the classic monster movies of the 30s and 40s. It sounds good on paper, but fails to achieve any one aspect particularly well. It just about manages to pass with solid gameplay and decent level design, but neither are anything to shout about.

You play as Selena, a Were♥♥♥♥♥, on the hunt for her kidnapped baby after an attack left her severely wounded and her husband dead. But if movies, TV and games have taught us anything, it’s that you don’t mess with a mama’s baby (or a baby mama for that matter) so armed with her crossbow and the ability to go full beast mode, she takes on the other classic ghouls including Dracula, the Mummy and Hyde (of “Jekyll and” fame). I’m not sure why the other monsters are such a pain, though; you’d think being feared and hated by all of humankind would bring them together to form a sort of Munsters-type commune, but apparently not. They hate you and they hate your baby. After a few of them feel the sharp, bloody claws of female empowerment, you find out Dr. Frankenstein is the main culprit and plans to make an army of werewolves from your child’s blood. You are understandably upset by this.

It’s not the worst excuse for a plot ever seen, but it does take itself very seriously. The writing is over the top most of time and doesn’t allow the solid voice acting to do itself justice. If it opted for a lighter tone, maybe one a little more playful, it might be much more charming. Sadly, it demands to be taken seriously, even with such antiquated and tired subject matter.

The influence of classic horror movies is obviously apparent, but poorly incorporated. The grainy, vintage title cards announcing boss fights and new locations are about the only thing that capture the vibe it was aiming for. The atmosphere they were trying to create is slightly at odds with the choice of art style, as Scientifically Proven attempt to merge the monochrome menace of Universal Pictures’ pioneering monster flicks with crisp, colourful cartoons. It just doesn’t work. However, if they had opted for a less serious approach then it could well have suited.

The game plays like any Castlevania clone but with one minor difference: Were♥♥♥♥♥ powers. In human form, you’re armed with a crossbow; while channeling your inner wolf, you rely on melee attacks but have the added “double-jump” ability. Both have their merits and uses but you don’t get a say in when you transform. At various points in each of the 10 levels, you change from one form to another, but it would be far more enjoyable if you were allowed to choose for yourself. Upgrades are available for each form but, they are well-hidden.

The levels themselves are well-designed, and variation keeps things fresh – there are some clever platform moments that really stand out. Of course, there are also a share of rage-inducing, controller-tossing, hyper-difficult moments that will make you swear like a dock-worker with tourettes. The Super Meat Boy comparison is justified, but where that game made you feel like it was your fault, Blood of the Werewolf feels less fair at times, with certain jumps or sequences that are too unforgiving.

VERDICT: Blood of the Werewolf is a short ride and, ultimately, a forgettable one. There’s little to bring you back around for another pass unless online leaderboards are your thing, and although it’s selling for a bargain on Steam it just doesn’t come highly recommended. There are some brief moments where it shines, but it’s mostly flat, uninspiring and lacking any real innovation. But the most important thing is that we finally answered the age old question of what to call female werewolves.

5/10

AVERAGE. The epitome of a 50/50 game, this title will be unspectacular but inoffensive, charmless but amiable. Im not condemning a game by scoring it a 5, but I am certainly not championing it, either.

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.

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.

Have you ever been a fan of Castlevania and werewolves? If your answer is yes, this game is for you, BUT it's a bit challenging.

Imagine being on a boat that has holes here and there, while there's a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ with you on the same damn boat. Can you survive without being ♥♥♥♥♥? Yes, but it'll be hard as hell. Sometimes, this game will leave you in such situations and the checkpoint will be a mile away from such places, so it's can give a bit headache and consume couple of hours. Did i mention that this game can become slow, because, apparently 8 GM RAM, 1.73GHz 7 Core and 1 GB NVIDIA 330M is not enough to run it on high graphics?

After reading my review, you're probably thinking about not giving a chance to this game, right? Well, the choice is yours, but i still like the game, even with these minuses. It was a fun adventure, liked the story and the art of the game, (wish you could transform into werewolf whenever you want) though the future "sequel" movie at the end made me laugh, a lot.

P.S. Selena, after reading my review, please don't hunt me.

Anyone who seeks a challenging but rewarding platformer, rejoice, for you have found your game. Blood of the Werewolf is not for the faint of heart, it will test your skills throughout the entire game, and just as you begin to tell yourself "it can't get harder than this", well guess what bucko? It gets harder.

This is not a casual game, it will demand prefection from you often, but if you are up to the challenge the game has a rewarding cycle of tension and release, and the controls are tight enough to make most deaths feel like they were your fault and not some cheap shot the game threw at you. But be warned, the game /will/ give you some cheap deaths and there are sections of the game you will have to memorize to get through. I want to continue to reiterate that this is a game that will demand you get good or get out. If that is not your thing, don't buy. But if you have the spirit of a werewolf in you to perservere, then I wish you luck. It's not an easy journey, but your accomplishments will have weight, and I promise you'll feel like a true badass werewolf by the end of it all.

Now get out there scrub, your baby's counting on you!

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 ♥♥♥♥.

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 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!

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.

Anyone who seeks a challenging but rewarding platformer, rejoice, for you have found your game. Blood of the Werewolf is not for the faint of heart, it will test your skills throughout the entire game, and just as you begin to tell yourself "it can't get harder than this", well guess what bucko? It gets harder.

This is not a casual game, it will demand prefection from you often, but if you are up to the challenge the game has a rewarding cycle of tension and release, and the controls are tight enough to make most deaths feel like they were your fault and not some cheap shot the game threw at you. But be warned, the game /will/ give you some cheap deaths and there are sections of the game you will have to memorize to get through. I want to continue to reiterate that this is a game that will demand you get good or get out. If that is not your thing, don't buy. But if you have the spirit of a werewolf in you to perservere, then I wish you luck. It's not an easy journey, but your accomplishments will have weight, and I promise you'll feel like a true badass werewolf by the end of it all.

Now get out there scrub, your baby's counting on you!

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 ♥♥♥♥.

Have you ever been a fan of Castlevania and werewolves? If your answer is yes, this game is for you, BUT it's a bit challenging.

Imagine being on a boat that has holes here and there, while there's a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ with you on the same damn boat. Can you survive without being ♥♥♥♥♥? Yes, but it'll be hard as hell. Sometimes, this game will leave you in such situations and the checkpoint will be a mile away from such places, so it's can give a bit headache and consume couple of hours. Did i mention that this game can become slow, because, apparently 8 GM RAM, 1.73GHz 7 Core and 1 GB NVIDIA 330M is not enough to run it on high graphics?

After reading my review, you're probably thinking about not giving a chance to this game, right? Well, the choice is yours, but i still like the game, even with these minuses. It was a fun adventure, liked the story and the art of the game, (wish you could transform into werewolf whenever you want) though the future "sequel" movie at the end made me laugh, a lot.

P.S. Selena, after reading my review, please don't hunt me.

This game reminds me so much of Castlevania I & 4 that if you're a fan of those game I know for sure you'll fall in love with this game as much as I have. The game is linear, you go through the stage and collect sigilis to gain more health and find the powerups hidden along the way. Selena's human and wolf form have 3 different special skills that get upgraded twice as well as two other upgrades for attack power. At the end of each sigil collecting stage is a boss battle. Also, if you miss any hidden sigils or powerups, and you will, you can replay the levels to get the ones you missed. The graphics aren't high-end but I'm assuming it's a stylistic choice because I find them absolutly charming. The voice acting of the narrorator is amaing.

The only con I have is that there's knockback damage - no one in gamer history has ever asked for this!

If you're in the mood for old school action platformer then give this game a shot. When I play games I always ask myself if my gameplay experience was worth what I paid for and in this case I will say absolutly. I find the mixed reviews harsh. It's only 1,99 USD, come on! I got this on sale but I would gladly pay the full, modest price for this game, double even. When I looked through the FAQ to look up how to get my direct input controller to work, I felt like the developers really cared about what their customers thought and had a lot of love for this game. I hope to see more from them in the near future.

Overall 7/10 - Hunting the achievements down is addicting as there seems to be a challenge for everything.

Pros:
- I got the game for $0.99
- Devs just put out a big update for free
- 125 Achievements
- 4 Steam Trading Card drops
- Good gamepad support
- Rebindable buttons/keys for both gamepad and keyboard
- Multiple resolution options + Antialiasing + Windowed/Fullscreen + Framerate cap options all working as they should
- Voice acting in all level transitions
- 3 Game Modes (Normal, Score Rush, Endless)
- In a normal game, you're graded up to an S rank, determined by clear speed alone.
- Leaderboards for each stage for clear time and Score Rush, and one leaderboard for Endless mode
- Challenging platforming
- Decent job of hiding upgrades and Signets
- Challenging Signet(collectables) locations
- Gameplay is smooth and never lags(for me)
- Mostly interesting boss fights, there are 5 bosses
- 10 lengthy stages(excluding bosses) that will take an average of 25-30 min each your first time if you're collecting all signets, and you'll likely miss a couple.
- Multiple checkpoints per stage and I don't think they're overdone
- Could be an interesting game to speedrun, both any% and 100%. (100% would be very hard to rush)
- Damage boosting by projectiles or even enemies themselves is possible and can be manipulated to progress a little faster.
- Collectable hidden upgrades
- Multiple attacks available, which are each upgradeable.
- Play as a human and a werewolf
- Character and enemy bios/info.
- Minimal bugs. I ran into one, once, where the camera stopped following me after a transition.
- Low RNG, non-existant if you can speedrun the stage flawlessly.
- Very fast load times on death (~1 second)
- Fast and accurate platforming. If you think otherwise, you probably don't understand the collision boxes for the character. (If you barely miss a ledge, the character will get caught on it for just a moment, almost like it's a mini slope. You can use this to your advantage sometimes)
- The game saves currently collected items within a checkpoint if you earned an achievement(for Signets%), or got a hidden upgrade.
- Reentering a stage to collect a missed item, then collecting said item, then proceeding to the next checkpoint will save the progress and let you exit the stage with it counting toward your total progression for that stage. (You don't need to finish the whole stage, just make it to the next checkpoint after obtaining the missed items)
- Can probably run on very low end PCs if you lower resolution.
- Quick and responsive menus
- Most boss attack orders are random (in my experience) I'm not yet sure if you can bait for specific attacks.

Cons:
- Mouse Acceleration that cannot yet be disabled, use a gamepad. (Mouse Acceleration is never useful and greatly hinders mouse speed and accuracy)
- The art is pretty good, but could use a little more detail in the environment.
- When the camera zooms in/out, or moves areas at all, it really throws off your aiming if you're using a mouse. Gamepad is unaffected by this. (maybe they should zoom the cursor with the camera?)
- Music 7/10, Some tracks are kind of obnoxious.
- Dying on the first checkpoint does not reset the timer. (There is a little unique stage entrance, but they could just queue it again you die on the first checkpoint)
- Dying to a boss doesn't reset the timer, though it doesn't matter because for some reason there isn't leaderboards for boss kill times, even though they have a timer. (I understand that due to RNG boss patterns, they probably shouldn't have leaderboards anyway. It would just be a battle for good RNG on the leaderboards)
- You're allowed to play for about one and a half seconds while the stage is still fading in from black after a death loading screen. I wish it would wait until the game was at 75%+ opacity before the timer starts, input is allowed and anything in the stage starts their cycle.
- If you are not going to hunt achievements, the game probably won't be worth $10 to you. Though if you do want to hunt them down, it certainly is worth it. I like built-in challenges.

I don't think the dev team was very big, so good job!

This game plays a bit like a werewolf metaphor itself. On one side it looks beautiful, has tight controls and is a great throwback to retro gaming with enough evolved moments to make it seem worthwhile, but every so often a full moon comes out and its got some frustratingly brutal sections that maul away at your patience. The mechanics are nothing to be snuffed at, and whilst some people have complained about hit detection and such - I havent noticed anything outrightly unjust so far. What I have noticed is some nice tight platforming brought to an abrupt stop at a steep difficulty curve - though, in all fairness, Im still playing and enjoying everything I've seen. In the end what you have is a great mix of Castlevania/Megaman with a gorgeous artstyle with some minor (forgivable) frustrations. Recommended in my book.

I really wanted to like this game. The art is neat, the game is very reactive, it has a Castlevania vibe, but... most of the platforming parts are horrendous. They involve rushing through a large area with flames/projectiles/compressors that all activate quickly one after another. The reason it is bad is that when you lose you do not feel like you lack skill and made a mistake, but that you did not learn by heart the precise path forced onto you by the game. So you need to start over and try again and again long and annoying parts of the level (checkpoints can be quite far in these areas).

Some other areas require dodging between projectiles and opponents (that shoot projectiles or behave like projectiles) in a very precise manner, but every hit has a knockback effect, pushing the character away from her trajectory. And to make things worse, there is lava or spikes that prevent from having safe spots in between. Both of these game design decisions make the platforming parts all the more punishing. It does not feel good at all, despite me liking hardcore platformers. It's not just challenging difficulty that I like in platformers, but good design, which I did not find here.

The levels are very linear. Some people like that, some people don't.

What I liked most in this game were the boss fights. They play well and rely more on skill than the rest of the game, even though they are thankfully not too difficult.

Blood of the Werewolf's biggest strength is how perfectly it manages to be a callback to the timeless monster movies of the 50's and 60's. The shaky film grain covered titles, spooky soundtrack, and voluminous collection of almost any ghoul or ghost you could think of all amount to a wonderfully nostalgic experience that feels right at home amid the dust covered classics. But this is as far as the developers managed to get with creating an enjoyable, well designed game, as taken as a whole BotW just doesn't cut it.

Taking control of Selena, a mother on a mission to get her stolen son back, gameplay shuffles you between her human and werewolf form. In the former you run through level wielding a crossbow, flipping switches and fending off the imposing baddies. When the moon comes into view you burst forth as the towering werewolf, who's sections feature more combat and little if any puzzle solving.

It's a cool mechanic and one that could have allowed for some interesting back and forth between the two forms, but the developer uses it in such a boring and uninspired way that it just feels like you are playing as a different character when you switch from one form to the other. There was no connection to me between the two, and it seemed like a hugely wasted opportunity. Playing a game presumably based around being a werewolf mostly as a human, feels oddly misplaced, but it's actually a relief as taking control of Selena's beastly side is wholly underwhelming.

It controls sloppily and feels far too underpowered, barely doing any more damage than your puny arrows but without the added benefit of firing at range (your only attack is ripping at enemies with your claws). The only benefit is you are able to double jump, but even then platforms are placed farther apart so it becomes a moot point amid the many annoyances you encounter while trying to maneuver the hulking mass of fur and claws.

After the first several levels the frustration begins to extend to the other portions of the game. The difficulty spikes rabidly with more enemies, precariously placed traps, fewer checkpoints, and one hit kills entering the mix, and continues to do so for the rest of the game. I repeatedly had to fight off the urge to snap my controller and walk away over a plethora of absurd sections, but this is certainly against your best interest as there are no in level save points and quitting will result in starting over from scratch.

I could go on about how terribly exploitable the enemies are, the weak boss fights, or the agonizingly inconsistent tonality shifts presented by the story, but the fact remains the same that Blood of the Werewolf is a one trick pony that can't finish the race. The presentation is top notch (though I much prefer the 2D art from the story sequences to the 3D models during play) with unexpectedly smooth animations, and the overall look does a fantastic job of emulating the films it so heavily draws inspiration from. Voice acting is so-so and the dialog gets progressively worse, but even that I could handle if the gameplay was fun.

It's a shame it turned out the way it did because there are some really neat segments amidst the mediocrity, but I simply cannot recommend purchasing it when the good parts are so heavily outweighed by the sloppy last 2/3 of the game. I hope to see developer Scientifically Proven do something again, but I would advise looking at other mediums as they clearly have a much better grasp on animation and style than game design.

after a promising start sadly the game became anti-fun and for those reasons

- terrible terrible level design and some trial and error sections that you have to die then
replay the whole section cause the check-point was far behind

- loose controls, when a platformer game requires from you precise timing and a lot of jumping
that a single mistake could drop you down a lot, the least they could do is make the control tight,
they should learn from games like super meat boy

- boss battles are very easy, predictable and boring, it takes ages to finish due to the boss's long
health bar while repeating the same easy to avoid attacks

do yourself a favor and buy other action-platformer games like Guacamelee or Dust and enjoy your
time instead of this terrible game

Blood of the Werewolf didn't click for me. When it comes to platformers, the design ought to own whether or not it will be a twitchy, high-precision affair (e.g. Super Meat Boy), or more of a fluid, graceful romp (e.g. Dust: An Elysian Tail). Blood of the Werewolf can't quite figure out which of the two it wants to be, and the gameplay suffers for it. You're expected to make jumps and battle monsters with careful timing and accuracy, but the controls aren't responsive enough to support you in those respects. Your character's movement is too slow, her turns and leaps too fuzzy, and the hitboxes of player, obstacles, and monsters too vague for the kind of pixel-perfect action the game seems to be trying for.

It could be that I simply sucked at this game, and if I were more awesome a player, I'd have enjoyed it. But other difficult games I've played in the genre were fun enough to encourage me through failure and frustration; this one, not so much.

This game is good at what it does, but it's not for everyone, if you are looking for casual platformer like mario then you won't find it here, if you are looking for action platformer like the old castlevania and megaman then this just might be for you, the game is challenging, and you will die alot, but since you get unlimited lives i didn't find it that frustrating, the checkpoints for the most parts are fair, so you will only have to replay the parts you died on and not the early parts you already beat, the art style is very nice and the story is surprisingly good, get it if you'd like a challenging platfomer.

I bought Blood of the Werewolf for two reasons: The art looked cool, and it was relatively cheap. As advertised the art is very appealing, with it's own very distinct style not often seen. It's title screens and characters (with the exception of our heroine) are all classic monsters with classic tropes. The opening of stages even have titles reminiscent to classic horror movies. I found this stuff goofy and appealing.
The plot is pretty straightforward and predictable, and the background info (that you can find in the extras menu) can make the whole story seem a little bit too serious for it's own good. I can respect Scientifically Proven's want to build up an epic tale about a clash between horror creatures, but it can take away from the whole story (especially since the big bad monsters go down way too easy.)
Now the gameplay... I would be lying to you if I told you I was expecting this game to play the way it did. Please note I was using a controller the whole time.
The game sets you up nicely, with interesting transitions between human and werewolf as you platform through a couple of hard jumps here and there and some pretty straightforward combat between weak enemies. After the first couple of levels the game shifts from gear one to five. The jumps become perilous, the enemies become obsticals and there are a million ways to die. And while the game is punishing, it sets up checkpoints nicely and only penalizes you for time when you die (and you will die.) The camerawork can be a bit of a problem, especially when transforming, when the camera will zoom in on your giant wolf body as you jump again into a pit of spikes.
When I finished the game, I was just about ready to close up shop for this game, but forlaughs I decided to try get S-rank on level one. This is where the game truly shines. The replaying of the game (giving you level select and letting you keep your collectables) is a lot of fun. While still very diffucult, you begin to see the game differently, you realize how fair it was being to you, and how to clean up your mistakes. Next thing I knew I wanted to see my name climb higher and higher on the leaderboards. The game hooked me in for another playthrough.
At seven dollars you can get a lot out of this game. If you don't want to get frustrated at a game I wouldn't recommed it, but if you put some time in it you may find yourself enjoying this game quite a bit. A great game for an indie developer, I am looking forward to their next project.
