A very awesome game for the Turbo-grafx is none other than Bloody Wolf. I guess you can refer this one as the Contra of the Turbo-grafx. The game plays well and has a very interesting story, save the president. Obviously not the current president we have right now, you can let that fuck die. Uh oh! lets get back to the game. Bloody Wolf can be played with two players. The game also gives you infinite continues which is great because you are going to die a lot! Lets take a peek at this gem.
The game does have very decent music. It's not an amazing set of music and sound effects, but it does the trick. You do feel like you are in a battle field and not a game show. The sound is also pretty good. It's precise and doesn't try to do too much. It's just right!
Graphically the game is decent as well. I like the animation of the enemies dying as well as the blood! Yes, this game has blood and you didn't even needed some code to unlock it. It really isn't much blood but still. I like it. The game doesn't disappoint in that department. Overall, it's a very detailed game and you will not get lost in it. There are houses to go into and get items and what not. Although, I have to say, some houses have an open door but you can't get in there. What's the deal with that? One time, I went running to open door and got shot because it was just part of the background! I wanted to use it as refuge! UGH!
So you can play with a friend and you have infinite continues. The thing is, you will be having problems with this game if you don't get the extra life containers. The problem is, once you lose one life, yes one life, you will lose the extra health therefore increasing the difficulty of the game. In other words, you will have to practice and get good at it. There is no way around it!
Since it's based on an arcade game, it's a port of the original. The port is well done if you ask me. The game is a tone down version but it does justice to the game. Overall, I would have to say that it's just as satisfying as playing it on the arcade and best of all, no need for quarters. Let me just say this, just when you think the game is over, something else will unfold! You have been warned!
This is a neat little gem for a forgotten 16-bit console. I highly recommend this game though. You want something different and fun? This is it. Have a friend ? Play this game with him/her. The great replay value it holds is more than enough reasons to come back to it. I gotta say, it's a very interesting top-down game. Underrated too!
