Bloodwych review

Zero Magazine Issue 01 (1990): "I can foresee Dungeon Master purists turning their 'oh-so-disdainful' noses up at this apparently inferior attempt. But it's not. The interaction element and two-player option add something news to what could become a stale genre. If you can forgive the jerky graphics, fairly poor animation, and slightly unwieldly controls, then Bloodwych will put a big grin on your face and a big dent in your social life."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

The game had an add-on pack released called Bloodwych: Data Disks Vol 1 (AKA Bloodwych: The Extended Levels).

A modified map for the first level of the game was produced as a demonstration level, and featured on the coverdisk of Issue 1 of the ST Format magazine.

Bloodwych was followed in 1994 by Psygnosis' Hexx: Heresy of the Wizard.

    Has the idea of recruiting the NPCs ever occurred to you? Cuz that's the second thing I did after killing all of the ones near me at the start of the game and then restarted it after I found out I could recruit someone lol
