Blood Money review

Zero Magazine Issue 06 (1990) - "The PC version has arrived and it's just as groovy. Blood Money takes you on a safari through four alien worlds. Forget Cliff Michelmore and tool up with helicopter gunships, submarines and neuron bombs as you go after the local big game without a care in the cosmos or a World Wildlife Fund on your back. Great graphics and sound and enough weaponry and action to satisfy most firepower freaks. This is murderously mindblowing stuff."

    Hello! You're right, it's one of those DOS games that require some tweak to run. You have to use "loadfix". From D-Fend Reloaded profile editor - memory - check loadfix - press OK, then run.
