This week's Throwback Thursday almost needs no introduction - it is Monolith's epic, blood-curdling (attempted) Doom-squisher, Blood from 1997.
From this week's feature:
Blood from Monolith Productions is very much a Doom-clone. An overly violent, sadistically fun shooter where the focus is squarely on action, set across a number of levels where the goals are based around finding different keys and exits. Built utilising 3D Realms’ Build Engine, the platform that helped make Duke Nukem a household name, Blood was one of the higher profile Doom-clones of the ‘90s. A lot of that probably had to do with the name and setting, which fittingly brought a lot of media attention to the game thanks to a number of weapons that could turn enemies into screaming fireballs before they exploded in a firework display of blood and bone. Like the flare gun, napalm launcher, and aerosol can and lighter combo.Click here for Throwback Thursday - Blood
