In this combat adventure, players take the role of a hero whose hands and feet are lethal weapons -- quite literally. Hyakkimaru is missing several of his natural body parts, which have been replaced by blades, guns, and other weaponry. His natural limbs were taken by demons, and he is on a quest to take them back. The fast-paced hack-and-slash action is strung together on a fairly thick storyline, which is told through extensive pre-rendered cut scenes. A two-player mode is also included, which puts the second gamer in control of Hyakkimaru's companion Dororo, a small girl with some big attack moves. Blood Will Tell is based on the manga series by Osamu Tezuka, the influential Japanese artist who may be best known to Western audiences as the creator of Astro Boy.
