Blood-Over is a side-scrolling game from 9thNight. It is a 3D game way back in Comiket 70, focusing on Shou, a female “Free Hunter” and her Maid Akari as they battle skeletons and monsters. This game is quite popular among doujin gamers. I think I know why – a trigger-happy ojousama, a cute maid with a gatling gun and a lot of monster-shooting action.
Shou’s gun tricks are sloppy compared to Dante’s in Devil May Cry but she has some moves of her own that are easy to execute and fun to do. This variation in moves and possibility of combos help increase the game’s replay value. There is nothing special about the background images but the character designs are nice to look at. They lack detail but attractive just the same. Boss fights are not so difficult but still challenging. You can easily think of a good combo when the boss reveals his/her ability. I had the hardest time with that boss with a samurai who does some kind of Hiten Mitsurugi moves.^^
The game is not the best action/adventure game I’ve played but still fun to play. I really enjoy summoning Akari and watch her pulverize everyone with her big gatling gun. Cool!^^
