Bad Blood Plot

A nuclear war has turned the world into a wasteland. The pure-blooded humans have retreated in large cities while mutants live in small villages on the plains where they make a living by hunting the many monsters. Now one of the human leaders, Lord Dominix, wants to start a war to wipe out all the “bad-blooded” mutants. Your village chief has assigned you with the task of preventing this war.

The game opens with scenes of nuclear devastation, followed by a camp fire conference taking place many years afterwards. Humans, or “humes” in the game, are tooling up for a war to eradicate all the mutants of the plains. Ressok, The mutant shaman leader or “Himmuk” of the Mardok village gathers the top three contenders in front of the elders to determine who is going to deal with the hume threat.

It is at this point where you chose one of three playable characters in selecting the game’s protagonist. There’s Dekker the human, who uses a knife and is quite weak. Jakka is a half mutant female with eye beam attack and Varigg – a big green mutant who’s tough, but can’t move freely in some “hume” areas of the game later on. Jakka is able to get away with movement in these areas because she can hide her mutation behind her “eyeblast” patch.

Aside from some additional tasks that Varigg has to do, the game is linear in progression and follows the travel here, find that,take it there, use it on that, talk to them approach to gameplay. The gaming area is large by standards of the day and consists of desert wastelands bound by rivers and rocky outcrops, a subway system, various villages, ruined cities and fortifications on the mutant plains. The game finishes in an underground bunker facility where your quest for peace in the plains ends with a confrontation with the evil Equitus.

Bad Blood game description

Bad Blood is a top-down action game with light role-playing elements. You can not create your own character but have to pick one of the three predefined ones: Varrigg (a strong green mutant who fights with his bare hands), Dekker (a human male armed with a knife) or Jakka (she looks human but can shoot laser beams from her eyes like Cyclops of X-Men fame). The choice you make has only a limited impact on gameplay and storyline.

Gameplay consists of exploring the world map, visiting several cities and villages, talking with NPCs, picking up items and new weapons (like shotguns, grenades, Uzis etc.) and lots of real-time combat. Bad Blood lacks character stats and character development. The game has a day-night cycle which influences the amount of monsters on the plains and whether or not you can talk with some NPCs.
