The plotline identifies the player as a champion of Trazere who, after recruiting up to three fellow champions, travels through dungeons and mazes fighting creatures along the way to find and destroy the evil Zendick, and banish the Lord of Entropy.

One particularly memorable quirk of the game is the ability granted to players to hold simple conversations with traders, other champions, and even enemies during combat. Stock pseudo-medieval phrases such as "Truly my courage is remarkable" and "Begone, thou oaf" are selected using a menu, and can be used in combination to flatter a desired companion, aggravate an enemy, or lower the price of an item which the player wishes to purchase.

Bloodwych is also remarkable for the sheer scale of its maps. Gameplay can easily last weeks until the player eventually navigates his way though mazes and past monsters to the start of the enormous and fiendish "towers", in which the gameplay becomes focused on the task of collecting crystals, with a view to destroying Zendick and his associates.

The game had an add-on pack released called Bloodwych: Data Disks Vol 1 (also known as Bloodwych: The Extended Levels). Among the features of the add-on pack was the capability to persuade some of the enemy creatures to join your "merry band".
