Black Blood is a freaky and delightfully cheesy Resident Evil inspired survival horror adventure where you attempt to escape from a hospital that’s infested with zombies and a huge horse demon called Helen.
In Black Blood you awaken in a hospital, with no idea how you got there and a cop telling you that you’ve got to get out of there. It soon becomes apparent that the hospital has fallen to an infectious disease called “Black Blood” (named because it turns your blood black), and it’s now filled with bloodthirsty zombies. The zombies aren’t too hard to pick off, but there’s also the small matter of a 200 year old horse demon called Helen, who won’t let you leave without a fight!
It takes around 20 minutes to play through the current build of Black Blood, and it features a nice mixture of combat and basic puzzle solving. The story is very silly and the cutscenes are particularly hilarious as the voice acting is delightfully bad (but in a good way). Even with the comedic cut-scenes Black Blood also manages to be pretty scary, and Helen the horse demon is particularly terrifying.
Unfortunately, at the moment Black Blood is no longer in development, which is a real shame as it showed a lot of promise. It is very cheesy and silly, but that just adds to the character of the game and makes it feel like you’re playing through a straight-to-video horror B-movie. Even as it stands though it’s a very entertaining 20 minute survival horror romp that’ll make you laugh, smile and scream. Highly recommended.
