Game Review

Bad Blood is a post-apocalyptic action/role-playing game played from a top-down view, created for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS by ORIGIN Systems and released in 1990. The game designer was Chris Roberts, famous for the Wing Commander saga.

In this Mad Max-like future, the world is a barren wasteland following nuclear warfare. Normal humans have chosen to shun the mutants and decide they need to wipe them out. With war looming on the horizon, your task is finding a more desirable solution to prevent it from happening. Choosing between 3 characters, a human, a green mutant, and a human looking mutant, you begin your journey. You can openly wander the wasteland exploring, discovering, collecting, and talking to NPCs. Combat is in real-time, with multiple weapons to choose from. The game cycles through day and night and this affects enemies and NPCs alike. Enemies come in a wide range of options including the standard irradiated giant bugs, snake people, and fire-breathing fliers, among other things.

Bad Blood has an interesting view perspective in that you seem to be watching it all through a TV screen, with a beer by your side. The interface is simple to pick up on making it a good fit for even the most novice players. Decently well-received upon release, Bad Blood is a pre-Fallout post-apocalyptic classic.
